Tanzanian National Park wins global tourism award

119020106One of Tanzania’s most celebrated national parks – the Serengeti has recently been crowned as the winner of the 2013 International Award in Tourism, Hotel and Catering Industry.

Spanning 12,000 sq m, the Serengeti is the second largest national park in Tanzania and plays host to a spectacular range of animals including wildebeest, gazelles, zebras and buffalos who enjoy specific prevalence in the area.

This year’s ceremony will mark the 38th time the awards have taken place and Tanzanian National Parks accepted the big prize on the 30th of January in a special event located in the Spanish capital, Madrid. Tanzania will feel content that they have maintained one of their biggest tourism assets.

The awarding body itself was established by the Global Trade Leaders Club – an international organisation possessing more than 7,000 associated companies across the world and with this repute, it is no mean feat that the Serengeti managed to fend off several other locations worldwide.

Winners of the award are recognised for their efforts in not only providing excellent accommodation and catering services for travellers in terms of the overall tourism package, but also for their endeavour to increase the number of individuals working within these realms.

The 2013 ceremony will be attended by a collection of tourism professionals from over 40 nations and the event will commence as part of an International Tourism Fair in Madrid, which is widely regarded as one of the biggest tourism industry networking conventions in the world.

It isn’t any wonder that the Serengeti is held in such high regard on holidays to Tanzania with the park playing host to the largest mammal migration in the world – part of the prestigious ten natural travel wonders of the world.
