Africa has started to reopen, creating space for luxury travellers to embark on a new adventure with likeminded others in their circle.
African Travel, Inc.’s small group safaris operate with a maximum of six clients per journey and are able to depart with a minimum of four guests.
Small group travel is becoming a popular option for Canadian travel advisors and is in great demand for like-minded clients, families and friends wanting to travel together.
“We are seeing people looking to travel and we know there is huge pent up demand especially for Africa,” said Brett Tollman, chief executive of The Travel Corporation. “Our brands, which include African Travel, Inc. have handcrafted trips that are absolutely right for next year and our protocols are the best in the industry. We’re ready to take Travel Advisors’ clients on the most amazing vacations in 2021.”
Hosted by locals
Each African Travel, Inc. journey is jam-packed with special moments and hosted by locals.
Since African Travel, Inc. handcrafts each trip, clients have the flexibility to add on experiences uniquely designed to their needs.
The award-winning safari operator is passionate about showing guests the heart of Africa and each safari supports local communities.
“Africa is personal to us and its diversity brings people together,” said Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel, Inc. “Now more than ever, Africa needs travel to support its wildlife and local communities. One in ten Africans are employed through tourism. With travel on the mend, clients are choosing brands like African Travel, Inc. because of the company’s commitment to sustainability."
Making travel matter
Their mission is clear: “To have a positive impact on the people and communities we visit, to protect wildlife and marine life, and to care for the planet we call home.”
Guests can visit the Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa with a first-hand look at conservation and sustainable wildlife management in action.
Their visit to Shamwari’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre will directly help rhino conservation. In honour of The Travel Corporation (TTC)’s 100th year anniversary, African Travel, Inc. will donate $100 per couple towards rhino conservation.
“As our company (TTC) turns 100 years old, our commitment to showing guests our roots and authenticity has never changed,” Banda added. “We plan to keep the story of Africa alive for the next 100 years.”
The new small group options feature:
- Kenya in Style: Each departure highlights the spectacular year-round game viewing in the Maasai Mara. While staying at unique luxurious camps and lodges, guests are treated to Big 5 game viewing, spotting the ‘Samburu Five,’ and participating in conservation projects like a lion tracking project at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
- Tanzania Wildlife Odyssey: With the trend to delve deeper into one destination, this epic safari explores Tanzania’s wildlife-rich game reserves including Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire while bringing clients to new corners not often visited. On the northern edge of the Serengeti, guests spend time in a Maasai community and enjoy night drives and walking safaris that are unavailable in the neighbouring national parks.
- Spotlight on Southern Africa: South Africa remains a popular bucket-list destination, topping many lists for travel desire in 2021. This classic safari has all the South Africa highlights from the top of Table Mountain to the tip of Africa and includes Victoria Falls. Clients can enjoy private tours of Cape Town’s coastal delights, land and water safaris in Zimbabwe and a visit to a private game reserve that has some of the most endangered and fascinating wildlife.
- Incredible Southern Africa: This safari invites guests to discover Africa like a local in ultra-luxe style. Clients can explore Africa’s past and present in private tours of Cape Town, including meeting Christo Brand - a former prison guard of Robben Island and personal friend of Nelson Mandela - before heading on a safari near Kruger National Park and Victoria Falls where they’ll see how wildlife is being protected for future generations.
With guests delaying their travel plans until next year, many safaris have limited availability. African Travel, Inc.’s flexible deposit options allow guests to book their safari with confidence.
