TORONTO — African Travel, Inc., part of The Travel Corporation, has launched its first-ever Canadian version of its 2020 brochure.
The safari outfitter and tour operator, billed as North America’s longest established luxury safari operator with exclusive focus on the African continent, has listed all of its South Africa itineraries in Canadian dollars in the brochure. Agents can earn 15% commission per booking. All other itineraries are offered in U.S. dollars.
“We are thrilled to expand our market into Canada to provide more travellers with magical experiences to Africa,” said Sherwin Banda, President of African Travel, Inc. “We are dedicated to turning travel dreams into reality by providing our guests with the ultimate luxury safari experience. When advisors in Canada hear us say ‘We Know Africa,’ they can depend on us to help them craft the right African experience for their clients.”
He adds: “Travel is personal, and our goal is to make travel matter. We are deeply committed to sustainable travel, uplifting the local communities where we operate and visit, and supporting wildlife conservation efforts that allow animals to be appreciated and experienced without impacting their habitat.
“We’re able to do this because we know Africa and we have the local knowledge to provide five-star experiences while treading lightly upon the continent, all with the goal of delivering the trip of a lifetime.”
The 30 journeys will inspire travellers and excite travel advisors focused on providing their clients with unforgettable experiences, he adds.
