SOUTH African Tourism (SAT) wined and dined industry partners at The Mint in Sydney on Tue night to help celebrate what has been an incredibly successful year for the country which played host to the World Cup.
Acting country manager,Tommy Lindblad announced Ms Nobulali ‘Lalie’ Ngozi as the new country manager for Australia/NZ (TD yesterday), and also introduced Ms Rachael Scobie, pictured above with SAT trade relations manager, Rob Gurr, as SAT’s Australian Adventure Ambassador (TD 15 Jul).
Ms Scobie was one of six competition entrants from around the world that was chosen earlier this year to embark on a seven day trip-of-a-lifetime to South Africa, courtesy of SAT and the National Geographic Channel.
Scobie has recently returned from her trip, telling TD the action-packed itinerary included activities such as hot air balooning, mountain and quad biking, a safari, bungee jumping, surfing and shark cage diving.
As part of her role as Australian Adventure Ambassador, Scobie has uploaded her experiences via a video diary and blog posts at adventuresouthafrica.net/au, and will continue to work closely with SAT on this campaign.
“Rachael’s passion for adventure has inspired our team to highlight these and other unique South African experiences on offer to the Australian traveller in 2011,” said Lindblad.
