Moto on excursion with Safari Blue

January 26, 2010

Thanx to Eleanor Griplas we’ve been invited to present Moto and Dada products to a big group of visitors.

Safari Blue took 300 guests on a boat excursion to an island in the Menai Bay Conservation Area. After snorkelling and delicious dinner the guests took a stroll along the stands with original Zanzibar products.

Thank you!

Dear friends and customers of the MOTO project. We like to thank you for supporting us throughout the year 2009 and encouraging us with helpful and constructive criticism. Our wish for 2010 is that more of the hotels will buy MOTO products rather than imports to make tourism on the island more sustainable.


… please visit the MOTO workshop at Pete and tell friends and clients! (click the moto workshop photo on the sidebar for more info)
