Update on Zimbabwe

Dear Valued Travel Partners, 

In light of recent events in  certain areas of Zimbabwe, we would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that all our guests currently traveling in the tourism areas of the country are perfectly safe.  

Popular tourist destinations such as Victoria Falls, Mana Pools and the Hwange National Park are far  removed from cities such as Harare and Bulawayo, where there has been unrest.  

Victoria Falls is operating as normal, and through our Zambian office the issue of unavailability of the internet has been resolved. 

Our team in Zimbabwe and myself are monitoring the situation closely, and we shall advise you accordingly should anything change.

Should you have any queries regarding travel to these regions please do not hesitate to contact us at reservations@bushtracksafrica.com 

All the best,
Christopher Tett

Why Hire a DMC?

First of all, let’s look at what a DMC is:  A destination management company, or destination management services company is your ultimate outsource partner, whether in your own home town, or a land far away.  These specialised professionals are an extension of your company, working with you to ensure that every aspect of your meeting, incentive, convention, conference or group outing goes according to plan.  Whether it is a corporate incentive trip, a wedding party or a multi-national convention with delegates from around the world, a DMC is essential.

What does a DMC do?

A good DMC is the ultimate logistics and event expert in their destination.  They source and book venues and locations, create experiences, negotiate costs, arrange transportation, cater to special requests and generally ensure that everything works from beginning to end (and not just for the time you are actually there!).

So why hire a DMC? 

If you have an unlimited budget, plenty of time, and a large team with varied expertise and knowledge of your selected destination, perhaps you do not need a destination management company.  However, the chances of that being a reality are probably quite slim.  This is where a professional DMC steps in.  Your destination management professional is your eyes, ears and feet on the ground, with an intimate knowledge of the destination and the contacts to make everything happen.

The real question is, can you afford to be without a DMC?

World of DMCs welcomes UGANDA

World of DMCs is excited to welcome The Safari Chapter, representing Uganda, a new destination for the association.

Uganda has something for everyone. From the most hard bitten adventurer to the most discerning connoisseur of food and wine. Safaris in Uganda have become irresistible. It holds a richness of wildlife that tugs at our heartstrings, sweeping savannahs that beguile the senses and fascinating cultures that overwhelm us with humanity and dignity. Its quite simply, a land that inspires lingering on.

The people with their diversity, warmth, hospitality, dance, song, love culture and passion for visitors are hard to resist. Inspired by Uganda’s physical beauty, Sir Winston Churchill named it “ Pearl of Africa”, and the country maintains its beauty to this day. This is a land of contrasts – from snow capped peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains to the tropical, sandy, freshwater beaches along the lake shores and smiling faces wherever you go, Uganda is a feast for the senses. It is an extremely diverse country.

Visiting Uganda, you can see the whole of Africa in this beautiful country. It is Africa condensed, with the best of everything the continent has to offer packed into one stunning destination.

Uganda also has the highest concentration of primates on earth including the majestic mountain gorilla. This is the Uganda we know, and the Uganda we are proud to show to the world.
