DELRAY BEACH, FL, April 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- While Easter is always a celebratory holiday bursting with delectable chocolates and colorful Easter eggs, African Travel, Inc. offers a truly exceptional Easter experience on safari for those wishing to upgrade the special occasion - our Easter eggs are bigger than yours!
Substantially bigger, in fact. Ostrich are native to South Africa, and their eggs typically weigh more than three pounds and equal approximately two dozen chicken eggs. Ostrich eggs are the largest single-cell organisms on our planet and their impressive shells are strong enough to sustain the seated weight of a protective 300-pound mother. These shells create breathtaking decorative items and can be hand carved, painted, beaded - skilled artists even decoupage them!
African Travel, Inc. offers several itineraries that provide guests the opportunity to witness these regal giants alongside a plethora of spectacular wildlife. These splendid sojourns encapsulate the ultimate South African experiences, and there has never been a better time to embark on the most unforgettable journey of your lifetime. Travelers are currently enjoying extremely favorable exchange rates based on the South African Rand's devaluation, and African Travel, Inc. is offering phenomenal savings on two of their most popular journeys to South Africa.
Explore the highlights of Southern Africa and Zimbabwe on a "Southern Explorer" safari and experience the region's vibrant cultural and natural wonders. Venture to Kruger Private Reserve for twice-daily game activities in search of the imperial ostrich and the traditional "Big Five" - lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. Be sure to purchase an oversized ostrich egg for an Easter decoration that will spark conversations and memories for years to come! Book by June 30, 2014 and save $700 per person on a Luxury Level Safari or $500 per person on a Deluxe Level Safari.
