As the saying goes don’t take your humble beginnings for granted, you will never know what God has in store. LikeATourist ZA, a travel initiative co-founded by Mark Sham, founder and CEO of Suits and Sneakers has signed a new partnership deal with Discovery Bank and Vitality Travel. The deal for both parties makes sense and straight forwards, travel across Mzansi through and use Discovery Bank to transact.
The entrepreneur and businessman Sham, posted on Instagram page to share the good news with his tribe. “We’ve got some exciting news!! Our sister brand, @likeatouristza is an official partner of Discovery Bank and Vitality Travel .”
The entrepreneur, educator and brand strategist went further to explains why the award is so important for him given the current state of affairs in the country.
“Despite what is happening in the country right now, there is still so much beauty, the people and cultures are incredible and there just is no place like home. Our Like A Tourist brand was created to encourage locals to act like tourists in their own cities, towns and country. Discovery Bank and Vitality Travel are helping us amplify this movement by 1. Allowing more South Africans to travel through their amazing discounts and 2. Amplifying us to create travel content so that we can capture the beauty of South Africa in all its glory.“
To someone who doesn’t know what LikeATouristZA is all about, it’s a proudly South African product that celebrates the beauty and treasure of this beautiful country of ours, Mzansi, it also encourages people to travel and explore the country.
“At the end of the day, experiences make us happy, food makes us excited, people make us feel so welcomed and travel makes us exhilarated. If we can encourage South Africans to travel and see more, through a brand that is enabling this, then this is our perfect match. This brand was an idea 6 months ago. Today, our idea has turned into a real business and we feel that this brand is going to bring so much good to our country.”
Congratulations Mark and the team at Tryst, see you soon brother.
