Zimbabwe – Bulawayo

The first month of 2017 has taken me back to Bulawayo.  I returned to the lovely Holiday Inn and was not disappointed.  Everything is just as i remember it being on my last visit…friendly staff that go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable, sincere smiles on peoples faces and a very warm welcome back.

Our training covered 3 full days.  This was one of the smallest groups i have done training for, but it was quite refreshing to spend a little more time also getting to know the individuals that attended the training.  Our course focused on customer service, dealing with difficult situations and compensation.  We also looked at dealing with significant situations (emergency procedures) and guest relations.

Besides the training, a little information on Bulawayo – Bulawayo is Zimbabwe’s second largest city. Located in the South-west of the country, it is home to more than a million people. Bulawayo is the hub of the province of Matabeleland which comprises the whole western Zimbabwe from the South African border in the south to Victoria Falls in the north.

The city has wide tree lined streets and is surrounded by beautifull parks, a legacy of Cecil John Rhodes. Within the city are many examples of early Victorian buildings which are maintained by the Bulawayo City council and landlords as heritage sites.

Bulawayo houses the country’s main museum, the natural history museum, a railway museum, the Bulawayo Art gallery, which is housed in a most attractive turn of the century building, theatres, the Mzilikmzi Art and craft centre, good hotels and one of the finest caravan and camping parks in Zimbabawe. Bulawayo is also home to the Chipangali wildlife orphanage and the Kame Ruins.

One of Zimbabawe’s major tourist attractions is the Matopas National Park, less than an hour’s drive from the city. As one leaves the city travelling south, many granite outcrops are seen. They increase in number and size as the distance from the city grows. By the time the Park is entered one is surrounded by a dramatic and enveloping scenery that is unique and extraordinary.

Just twenty-two kilometers to the west of the Bulawayo is Kame Ruins, one of southern Africa’s magnificent Late Iron Age ruins (now an Unesco World heritage Site.) The land adjoining the ruins has been made into a Nature Reserve by the City Council, called Mazwi Nature Reserve, where the visitor may walk, drive and picnic.

Also worth a visit and situated on the main Gwanda Road, 23km from Bulawayo is the Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage and Research Centre, a home for orphaned, sick or abandoned wild animals. There are lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhino; many species of antelope and a large colletion of birds.

Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centre, situated just out of town off the Old Falls road, is definitely worth a visit where visitors can choose from a wide selection of skilfully crafted sculptures, basketry, pottery, beadwork and woodwork – all done by local people.

There are many reasons to visit the part of the world, listed above are just a few.  However, make sure you stay at the Bulawayo Holiday Inn, i am 100% confident that staff will look after you.

Welcome 2017

Here’s to a great 2017!

Our correspondence courses have been so successful and we are so proud of all our students that completed their Facilitator, Assessor and Moderator courses in 2016.  We wish you all the very best.  Now that you have your Statement of Results and are registered, get out there and let all your hard work pay off.

THT has had a number of students request lecture lead, classroom attended courses, so we have decided that 2017 is the year that we will offer our students exactly what they want.  So we are proud to present our 2017 course calendar, all our courses and our company are accredited by the ETDP Seta.  We would like to ensure that all our students get the attention that they deserve, so we will restrict our classes to 6 at a time.  To those that still wish to have the option of doing the courses via correspondence/distance learning, this option is still available and you can enroll and start whenever you wish.

Either way, let’s make this a great year!  Take the leap, educate and arm yourself with extra skills to ensure that you are always one step ahead of everyone else in life.

My return to Mauritius

Mark Twain once wrote, ‘Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius’. He was right.

If you ever have the opportunity of visiting this paradise on earth, grab it with both hands.  Mauritius will enchant you, will uplift your soul, making you feel that you belong to the chosen few. Every visitor enjoys personal attention. Every encounter is an opportunity to discover a friendly face. Behind each smile lies the promise of a unique holiday. The contrast of a multitude of colours and tastes, the island, set in its turquoise sea, is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Mauritius, a melting pot where past and present are smoothly blended together, offers an essential beauty that will compel to return to its shores time and time again. Your stay on this island will remain engraved in your memory forever.

Of volcanic origin and generally sheltered by barriers of coral reefs forming natural, safe, crystal clear lagoons, Mauritius has long been a dream destination. Known to the Arabs as early as the 10th century, but officially “discovered” in 1505 by the Portuguese navigator Pedro Mascarenhas, the island was occupied successively by the Dutch (1598-1712) and the French (1715-1810), and was ceded to Great Britain in 1814 through the Treaty of Paris. On 12 March 1968, Mauritius became Independent. Republic Day was proclaimed on 12 March 1992.

Sharing more information on the history of this island and exploring all the delights Maurituis has to offer, make sure you contact the staff from White Sands Tours to show you around.  My visit here to train some of White Sands Tour Leaders was as brilliant as the first time.  Everyone i meet never cease to amaze me with their true hospitality.

Waitron and Housekeeping Self Study courses

THT Hospitality Training (Pty) Ltd are proud to now offer our self study courses for only R800!

South Africa has a high unemployment rate,  there is a dire shortage of skilled workers in the food and beverage and housekeeping hospitality industry.  A skills audit by the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism released in 2014, indicated that over the next 3 years the hospitality sector will require thousands of waitrons and cleaners.

The significant growth in the hospitality and tourism industry in South Africa has resulted in a significant gap between supply and demand.  Now is definitely the time for anyone with a passion to be a waitron or cleaner to acquire new skills or brush up on their current ones.  The world is your oyster in the hospitality sector, if you arm yourself with the right skills.  You have to make an effort to be better and stand out from the crowd.

School leavers and even adults don’t always realize that so many opportunities exist in the hospitality industry at present.  We understand that many students want short courses that will enable them to hit the ground running, they want to learn a skill that will immediately enable them to work in restaurants, hotels, guest-houses, bed & breakfasts, bakeries, at caterers, for event companies, corporate kitchens, or to start their own little business.

THT Hospitality Training (Pty) Ltd has over 16 years of experience in the hospitality industry; we have extensive knowledge with regards to training needs and have travelled both locally and internationally carrying out various training courses.  We have recognised that not everyone can afford a full qualification and thus we are proud to offer our self study programmes to anyone that wishes to be a waitron or housekeeper.

Take pride in what you do, better your skills and reach your full potential.  We all have to take that step to improve ourselves.  We are here to assist you every step of the way!housekeeping
