Traditional welcome

The beating of drums... women dancing... a praise singer singing... all part of a traditional welcome to Africa and something that tourists just love to see.  In fact, tourists just can't walk past them without taking pictures or even joining in and bobbing to the rhythm.  A rhythm which is very addictive by the way.  Last week we welcomed 56 Belgium travel agents for a four day visit to Port Elizabeth and the Eastern Cape and the guys from African Drumbeat welcomed them to the welcome function at the Beach Hotel in style.
