‘First’ on board

DR MANAL Kelig, a co-founder of tour operator Gateway To Egypt, has become the region’s first representative on the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) advisory board.

Kelig is also a co-founder of Great Wonders of Egypt, which promotes sustainable travel to Egypt, North Africa and the Middle East and is active in the preservation of Egypt’s ancient and modern cultural heritage.

“The Mena region holds a wealth of attraction for those seeking adventure, mystique, ancient roots and a variety of authentic experiences,” said Kelig. “Yet, our adventure travel richness needs to be nurtured so it can develop strategically. I hope that together with the ATTA, we can create a stronger network between the region and the global community that leads to the development of stronger sustainable adventure travel markets.”
