Local travel agency, Happy Soul Adventures is on an exhilarating journey to change the travel agency industry and how Botswana and her visitors experience the country. Once again the company has conceptualised an impressive concept that promises to add life to the annual Toyota 1000 Desert Race.
The company has partnered with another local company that shares their vision, Bush Buddies, and they showed off their latest project last weekend at the Kalahari Desert Race activation pencilled to take place this weekend.The event took place at the Stanbic Bank Piazza.
Droves of visitors could not get enough of the VIP camping facilities. A home away from home, the VIP tents will see the lucky few who wish to enjoy the annual extravaganza that is the Desert Race in style, surrounded by all the lavish comforts that they will normally enjoy if they were staying in an exclusive hotel. Their camping grounds are located 10km from Jwaneng, and those seeking the VIP package can enjoy their very own private camping grounds.
Speaking in an interview with this publication, Cynthia Mothelesi, the brains behind Happy Soul Adventures explains that their first VIP tent costs P3 800. This is inclusive of welcome basket that comprises socks, hot water bottle, bernie and breakfast and dinner. Most importantly it comes with private toilet and shower. The second package costs P2 500 per night sharing.
It also comes with the same perks as the first package. Thirdly is the package for basic sharing which costs P1 200, and one shares toilets and showers. Lastly, they have a DIY option for those who wish to pitch their own tents for P300. Mothelesi explains that they want their clients to enjoy the Desert Race in style.
“People were really impressed with what we are offering them,” she tells BG Style. “We are offering them with a once in a lifetime experience,” she adds. For those who wish to party up in style and enjoy the Desert Race away from huge crowds, the partners have a hospitality marquee, and a ticket goes for P2 500. This package, she says includes food and drinks, as well as an opportunity to see the cars take off. For those who are looking for something different, they can part with P400 to see the cars take off, and they will be transported to and from the departure point.
