Share Your Compelling Food Story For WTM Africa Awards

December 7, 2019


One of the best ways for tourists to immerse themselves in the culture and history of a destination is by digging into the local fare. Dishes that are indigenous to a destination are paired with incredible stories passed down from generation to generations. They naturally bring people together and start conversations that break down language and cultural barriers.


WTM Africa is looking for the most compelling Foodie Story that gives travellers a taste of African food and drink through enticing marketing and PR campaigns. Share how you crafted an irresistible food journey that left visitors wanting more.
