A heart-racing flight over the surreal Seven Coloured Earths and the Black River Gorges – it might sound a like a scene from Games of Thrones but was in fact just one of the activities six Western Australian agents experienced on a recent tour of southern Africa thanks to TravelCube and Air Mauritius.
The thrilling helicopter journey over the famous geological formations of south-western Mauritius wasn’t the only adrenaline-spiking experience offered by the island nation. One consultant’s blood pressure rose rapidly when she lost her passport for 24 hours, and the entire group took some lions for a walk at Casela Nature Park.
Lauren McAlpine (Motive Travel), Kerry Coupar (Air Mauritius), Lorraine Todd (Carine Travel Bug), Sophie Weller (TravelCube), Jacquie Dean (Helloworld Mandurah), Vicky Johnston (Helloworld Midland Crescent Village), Sybil Lees (Boutique Travel Café) and Michelle Griffith (RAC Travel Midland).
TravelCube Sales Executive WA Sophie Weller says the agents were struck by how much variety Mauritius offers visitors.
“There was a perception beforehand that the island was only for honeymooners, but it actually has something for everyone, including conference delegates, families and golf and dive enthusiasts.”
The top-selling agents also visited Cape Town on the trip, staying at Bay Hotel, exploring the city and its beaches aboard the city’s Hop-On Hop-Off bus, and riding the cable car to the top of Table Mountain.
Weller says the favourable exchange rate also made shopping a particularly enjoyable activity, while a relaxing trip to Stellenbosch for a tour of the region’s wineries was another highlight.
“Even our departure from Cape Town airport was memorable because TravelCube offers day passes to the Airport Premiere Lounge, so we had a nice rest before boarding our flight home.”
