“You did a wonderful job and I really liked the first webinar. It reinforced some things I knew about Africa but had not thought of in terms of promoting tourism. The resources and reference materials are also really well done and will provide much need information as I begin having discussions with potential clients. “
“The more Kathy tells us in these educational seminars the more we all want to learn…and to send people to experience this wonderful culture (plus of course‚ the Big 5 and the Little 5)!!”
“My favorite takeaway from chapter 2 today was the insightful list of things that are different between a Southern Africa safari and an East Africa safari. It will really help me to ask the right questions and send clients to the right place for their needs!”
“Excellent insight Kathy. Looking forward to next week and already using the info I have learned so far! This course is thought provoking.”
This is wonderful very, useful information you are sharing with your readers. Thank you.

I joined and I think you are awesome. Two days after joining I received a fabulous Africa map. You are wonderful. I am excited about being part of your wonderful organization.
I have been telling everyone about you. A friend called me to let me know she had found a great source of information about Africa and she was considering joining. I told her I sent it to her!!!!
“Travel to Africa is a life-changing experience! It is expansive and has so much diversity that a travel agent cannot possibly learn all they need to know in their travel agent classes. Organizations such as the IAFTTA play a vital role in training travel agents – helping them to discover the many varied experience and cultures Africa provides. Kathy is a natural leader. She is not only a highly skilled travel professional, but has an extensive knowledge of Africa.”
“It was at the 2005 National Forum of APTA (Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa) where I first met Kathy Moroney. She had been sent by the newly formed Sacramento Chapter of APTA, as its first president and one of its organizers. I have known Kathy through these past years to be just that – an organizer. To task her with even the smallest job is to receive it well and thoroughly done. But it is the energy and enthusiasm that Kathy brings to any endeavor that distinguishes her from others. I wish to attest to her integrity which is of the highest value. Were I to wish to hire an employee, Kathy Moroney would be my first choice.”
Kathy is truly passionate about travel to Africa and the promotion of tourism to the African continent.We have worked together in arranging group travel services in Africa, done joint marketing, and traveled together on a familiarization trip in Africa.
She has traveled extensively throughout Africa, with clients, with other travel professionals and as a solo traveler.

I really enjoyed the seminar and received so much valuable information. I really appreciate the resources that you have provided in your email. Sometimes, I feel that the needs of the disabled are not addressed and I see the challenges when traveling with my husband.
I am definitely going to be an IAFTTA member.
Once again, thank you very much.
