Tuesday, September 12, 2017
DELRAY BEACH — African Travel Inc., part of The Travel Corporation, has released its 2018 brochure featuring three new itineraries and more than 20 returning favourites to southern and eastern Africa.
New trip offerings for 2018 include a 10-day trip to South Africa, an 11-day East Africa itinerary and an 11-day South Africa tour that includes Victoria Falls.
- Majestic South Africa: This 10-day experience includes four nights in Cape Town and three nights at Shamwari Game Reserve. Guests explore the sights, sounds and flavours of the ‘Mother City’, and spend their nights at the five-star Table Bay Hotel. Then they move on to Shamwari, where twice-daily game drives and nature walks provide plenty of opportunities to see big game such as rhinos, elephants, hippos, kudu, gemsbok, wildebeest, zebras and hyenas.
- Enchanting East Africa: This 11-day trip showcases Nairobi, Kenya and Tanzania, plus the exotic spice island of Zanzibar. Guests start in Nairobi, where they stay at the famed Giraffe Manor and visit an elephant orphanage before heading off for five days of game drives at Maasai Mara National Park and Serengeti National Park. Then it’s on to Zanzibar for a seaside stay, and two days of relaxation and exploration of the island’s architecture, food and sea life.
- Ultimate South Africa with Victoria Falls: This 11-day itinerary “is the ultimate sensory journey, offering cosmopolitan exploration, wildlife viewing, and a visit to a bucket-list icon,” says the company. Highlights include a helicopter ride over the Cape Town skyline, wine tasting in the South African winelands, Big Five game viewing at Lion Sands Reserve, and exploration of Victoria Falls. Along the way guests stay in exclusive surrounds at Lion Sands Ivory Lodge, the five-star Silo Hotel in Cape Town and the treehouse suites at Victoria Falls River Lodge.
As part of the #AfricanTravelCares program, on select itineraries a contribution is made in each guest’s name toward rhino conservation and in support of sustainable development, African Travel’s partnership with ME to WE allows guests the opportunity to participate in a culturally immersive experience in Kenya. Additionally, in 2018, guests who book an east Africa trip with African Travel will also help support children’s education by sending a child to school for a year.
“To know Africa is to reinvest in it,” said Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel, Inc. “Our commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainability is at the core of who we are and what we do. It allows our guests to delve deeper into Africa and have a truly authentic and memorable experience on their trip of a lifetime.”
