Weddings in Uganda are big business and so are honeymoons. Last week did the New Vision, Ugandas leading daily newspaper, organize a Bride and Groom exhibition, lasting for three days.
Pearl Hoareau, Managing Director of the Uganda Travel Bureau and Tourism Ambassador in Uganda for the Seychelles, hosted Amia Jovanovic of the Seychelles Tourist Board to present those tying the knot in the future with information and booking options for one of the most sought after honeymoon destinations in the world the Seychelles.
Business at the exhibition was described as brisk and companies participating and showing off their wares and services expressed satisfaction over both attendance and transactions recorded.
Early in the week a workshop for travel agents will also be held, organized by STB and Pearl, aimed at giving Ugandan agencies more information of the archipelagos attractions and how to get there.
Kenya Airways offers three times a week convenient one stop connections from Entebbe via Nairobi to Mahe and within a few hours flight can the honeymooners enjoy their vacation on one of the Seychelles famous beaches. Resorts have special packages available for honeymooners, full of extra goodies for the newlyweds and even holiday villas and guest houses, and B&Bs for that matter, are keen to host honeymooners to further entrench the Seychelles reputation as THE honeymoon destination.
