Tracey & Paul Campbell of Travel Butlers were delighted to attend a recent event held at the South African Embassy in London hosted by the Mantis Collection, South African Airways and The South Africa FIFA World Cup Organising Committee.
The 120+ guests from the travel industry were treated to many fascinating speakers including Virginia McKenna (founder of the Born Free Foundation), Will Carling (the former England Rugby captain speaking about his recent family safari in South Africa), and Adrian Gardiner (founder of the Shamwari Reserve and Chairman of the Mantis Collection).
The evening was a huge success, and given the prestigious location and illustrious speakers, Tracey & Paul were particularly honoured to receive The Adrian Gardiner Award For Innovation on behalf of Travel Butlers

Please note that the availability of forecasts for Namibia is fairly limited, and they all tend to be concentrated in the south of the country and coastal regions (there are no forecasts available for Etosha, Sossusvlei, or the Caprivi Strip).
Nationwide Airlines resumed its long-haul flights between London-Gatwick and Johannesburg on Saturday 8th December and limited domestic flights also resumed yesterday (Sunday 9th December).
This follows the SA Civil Aviation Authority reinstating Nationwides Certificate of Airworthiness, which had been suspended since 30th November.
Domestic flights will return to normal over the next few days as more aircraft are cleared to fly, meanwhile Nationwide say they are contacting customers to notify them of any changes to their schedule for flights over the coming days.
Further information is available from Nationwide Airlines call centre in South Africa (tel: 0861 737 737), ticketing offices and on www.flynationwide.co.za
