Taste us at East Africa’s largest tourism Fair on June 5-7, 2009

Tanzania’s Karibu Travel and Tourism Fair, the largest and most ambitious travel industry event in East Africa, will celebrate its 10th Anniversary, June 5-7, 2009. The Karibu Fair, held just outside of Arusha, Tanzania’s safari capital, attracts travel industry partners from around the world. The annual event is organized by the Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO), Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT).

Part of the uniqueness and excitement of The Karibu Travel and Tourism Fair is that it is an outdoor event that offers a real safari experience. Over 250 exhibitors and thousands of regional and international visitors are expected to attend the 2009 Fair.

The fair is ranked as the second most important African travel and tourism event after the Indaba in South Africa and it is expected to attract exhibitors from across the Great Lakes Region. According to the organisers of the KTTF, exhibitors from Tanzania, Zanzibar, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, the DRC, South Africa, China and Belgium have already confirmed participation.

Wine distributor Upper Zonal Trading teams up with Onsea House at the 2009 Karibu Fair and organize together a Wine & Food tasting at their stand N1. New wines in the Hill & Dale, Table Mountain, Backsberg and Zonin assortment will be paired with food prepared by Onsea House chef Axel Janssens, while you can learn more about the renewed Onsea House hotel accommodation & restaurant activities.

Contact info@onseahouse.com if you want to receive an invitation for the Wine & Food tasting sessions on June 5 or June 6, taking place 3 times a day at 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00.

Attractive rates for 2010 launched for INDABA

Africa’s top travel show INDABA attendee numbers promise to eclipse last year’s record-setting global travel trade, media and exhibitor attendance. This is in spite of an international market subdued by the global economic crisis and the new Swine Flu virus outbreak in Mexico, according to SA Tourism.

The show, highlighting the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa opens its door from 9 until 12 May 2009 at the Durban ICC.

Onsea House, officially nominated as Best Safari House, is not personally present at the show but most Tanzanian ground safari operators, of which some are in the DEC Hall on the stands of Tanzania Tourist Board (DECC017) and Classic Safari Camps of Africa (DECB028),  represent and frequently book the intimate boutique property in Arusha and received already the new rates for 2010.

Contact info@onseahouse.com to request the rates for 2010 or for any other enquiry.

Karibu Travel & Tourism Fair opens during Sullivan Summit in Arusha

The Karibu Fair opens his doors in Arusha on 5th June, while seven Heads of State from various African countries will join about 1,500 delegates in Arusha at the ongoing 8th Leon Sullivan Summit.

Because of the same timing as the Sullivan Summit, the Karibu Travel & Tourism trade fair - which is held annually in Arusha - expects this year an extra boost.

The accommodation at Onsea House in Arusha has been fully booked during these 2 events. The special culinary dinners on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th June were fully booked short after announcing.

Plans have therefore been changed slightly and instead of catering a reception at Karibu Fair, the Onsea House restaurant will host an extra culinary dinner on Saturday 7th of June.

Because of our very small operation, Onsea House will not participate to the Karibu Fair. Contact info@onseahouse.com if you want to meet or visit Onsea House Arusha during the upcomming days or visit our preferred partners at the Karibu Fair to learn about us: Asilia Lodges & Camps (stand number NW4), CCAfrica or Nomad Tanzania.
