African Travel, Inc. Celebrates 40th Anniversary with Brochure Launch

DELRAY BEACH, FL, Sept. 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- African Travel, Inc. is proud to celebrate four decades of intimately connecting North American travelers with the exotic majesty of Africa's unknown. The company's legacy of excellence is evident from its continued industry recognition, including the #3 Top Safari Outfitter in Travel + Leisure's coveted 2015 World's Best Awards. African Travel also boasts impressive numbers of return customers and an innovative collection of customizable safaris that are updated each year with the release of its annual brochure.

"Africa is not one country and it is certainly not one story - the continent has something for everyone and at any price point," said Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel. "It is a unique destination, and my hope is that everybody gets to experience Africa at least once. We are committed to offering a range of safaris that enable guests to take the safari of their dreams; and once you are there, this life-changing experience will never, ever leave you."

African Travel's new brochure features a well-rounded collection of "Popular Journeys," which encompass past guests' favorite sojourns; "Extraordinary Experiences," which are ideal for those who prefer more remote safari experiences; and a variety of "Added+Adventures" that put the finishing touches on any dream vacation with highlights such as an island retreat in the Seychelles or an adventure into the misty land of Victoria Falls.

"Africa is an enticing destination, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for some and a repeat trip for others," said Banda. "People today want to travel differently, and we excel at providing a range of itineraries to satisfy every guest."

The brochure also features four exciting 2016 "Safari Vacation Packages" designed to accommodate every budget and bucket list. Guests choose set departure dates and benefit from group travel savings while enjoying intimate journeys of two to 12 people and accommodations of the finest caliber. Itineraries range from seven to nine nights, and most can be enhanced with additional excursions and all can be extended for an independent stay. Prices for these itineraries start at $4,240 per person, and many packages include international airfare.

In an effort to prioritize the importance of conservation and sustainable tourism, African Travel offers all guests the opportunity to volunteer for long-lasting initiatives on every type of journey. African Travel also encourages the sustainable development of tourism by partnering with the TreadRight Foundation and supporting projects that benefit the environment, heritage and community of Africa. Other partners include the Amy Biehl Foundation, which contributes to community building programs in Cape Town, and WildAid, whose mission is to end the illegal wildlife trade by shutting down global consumption of wildlife products.
