If you’ve been following @bellanaijastyle on twitter, you would know that I have been in South Africa and I am having the most awesome time. During my undergrad I was fortunate to spend 4 months studying abroad in Cape Town, SA and it was simply one of the most amazing experiences. When it was over, I had grown a soft spot for the country and its people. So when I found out that I will be going back there again on an all expenses paid trip, I was over the moon! Finally a chance to do things my student pocket money could not afford!
The trip is organized by South African Tourism. Last year, SA Tourism ran the FUNDI online course. Targeted at travel agents and consultants, the course aimed to provide professionals in the tourism field with knowledge about South Africa and its products. On the 25th of November, 2011 at a grand occasion in Lagos, SA Tourism graduated about 65 Nigerians who successfully completed the FUNDI programme. 10 lucky winners emerged to be hosted in South Africa and experience the country first-hand. I was fortunate to be amongst them to share the wonderful experience.
SA so far has been a whirlwind of fun and excitement; from sliding 50 feet above the ground to fancy helicopter rides, a lively night life experience and some of the best hotels the country has to offer!
I cannot wait to share my amazing experience with you guys. Expect a full report and a whole lot of pictures!
