British Travel Award nominee: Mahlatini

20130812-110213.jpgWe love to see local businesses do well globally, and increasingly we are hearing about a lot of local success stories. Last week alone we’ve spotted two award winning local businesses and we have no doubt there are thousands of award winning market leaders in NI

The first one we came across is Mahlatini, Northern Ireland’s only African travel specialist.

They have been short listed for the prestigious British Travel Awards and they could very well be the first ever Northern Irish winner…. And we didn’t even know they existed!

The British Travel Awards is the largest awards programme in the UK created to reward the best companies in travel. Mahlatini has been shortlisted for both Best Safari, Wildlife & Nature Holiday Company and Best Holiday Company to Sub Sahara Africa.

It’s quite the accolade to be shortlisted and the winners will be the companies with the most public votes.

We are happy to give a helping hand to help out, so we are encouraging everyone in Northern Ireland to get voting. Everyone who votes is automatically entered into the British Travel Awards Prize Chest competition which is full of holidays and travel-related prizes.

Mahlatini Luxury Travel creates tailor-made itineraries to Southern & Eastern Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands, for the ideal honeymoon, luxury safari or family holiday. Mahlatini’s operation has been based in Belfast for over ten years and delivers the ultimate luxury African travel experience to customers across Ireland, the UK, Europe and North America.

To vote for Mahlatini log on to and follow the link on the homepage. Voting ends on September 30th.

The winners of the 2013 British Travel Awards will be announced on 31 October at the Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, London.
