When Brett Dudley started his highly successful company eCruising some years ago, he was told no one would buy a cruise online.
Such is the success of his group of companies; they have expanded their travel interests into the business events market with the announcement of an exclusive representation in Australia of Maniago Safaris, one of Africa’s leading multi-disciplined destination management companies.
eCruising’s representation will centre on land content across eastern and southern Africa with product designed to appeal to the high end incentive and wholesale markets as well as special interest groups, and those seeking deluxe tailor-made holidays and unique African experiences.
Executive director of Maniago Safaris, Peter Karanja, who flew from Kenya for the Sydney launch on Wednesday will run a media conference at AIME 2013.
At the launch this week Dudley announced the appointment of Bradley Ellis, as Maniago Safari Australia’s general manager.
Last year Maniago took an incentive group of 100 to Nairobi and took over the Fairmont Mara Safari Club, on the edges of the world’s Seventh ‘new wonder of the world,’ the Masai Mara.
“A major strong point of ours is we build experiences around our tours,” Karanja.
