A safari holiday should be on everyone’s bucket list. It's the ultimate holiday experience and will be etched in your memories forever. Here at Africa Travel, we know exactly what it takes to make a safari adventure extra special and always go above and beyond to exceed our client's expectations. Here are just five reasons why you should consider booking your first or thirteenth safari holiday with us.
1. We recommend what is right for you, not for us
Some tour operators will push you towards a particular property because they earn a higher commission with them than other properties. However, here at Africa Travel, we only suggest properties that suit your exact requirements and that we know personally. We never suggest a property just because it's commercially beneficial for us for you to stay there.
2. We have more than 250 combined years of unparalleled experience
Our knowledge is unparalleled, as all of our staff have travelled extensively throughout the continent – indeed some of them were born and brought up there, and we have a passion for Africa, which means that we are always up to date on the latest trends and are able to offer the very best advice. Meet some of our experts here.
3. We have the best accommodation rates in the market place
Our long-standing and leading position in the travel industry allows us to negotiate the best rates, ensuring that you not only get your perfect holiday but also excellent value for money. We also offer a best price guarantee on any like-for-like itinerary quoted by a reputable & bonded UK tour operator.
4. We offer insider tips, which help to maximise your experiences
We have key contacts in all the destinations we sell, which means we know which room to book in just about any hotel, which safari lodge has the best game viewing or guides and also information like the best bars and restaurants in Cape Town. However, don't just take our word for it, visit our testimonials page and find out for yourself what previous customers have to say about the holidays we've organised for them.
5. We offer 24 hour emergency assistance, providing peace of mind
Sometimes things don't go to plan. For example, frustratingly sometimes flights can be delayed or natural disaster can occur. In such eventualities, you will always be able to contact someone in our London or Cape Town offices and they will help re-arrange everything so it has as little impact on your holiday as possible.
So, there you go! If you are interested in booking a safari holiday with us then give one of our Africa specialists a call on 020 7843 3500. Whether you already have an itinerary in mind, are just looking for some guidance, or don’t even know where to begin, they will be more than happy to help you plan the perfect safari holiday.
