Posted: 28 May 2019 Africa Day, Africa Month and Trafalgar's new African itineraries launched



After it’s highly anticipated launch last year, Trafalgar is proud to announce the release of its new series of Africa trips for 2020.

For Trafalgar, as one of all seven continents the brand travels to, Africa holds particular significance as the home of the Tollman Family, owners of Trafalgar as part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) the largest privately-owned travel company in the world.  

With generations of the Tollman’s being born and raised in Africa, the trips have been curated with family memories and connections front and centre. For customers, this can only mean one thing, some of the most personalised suites of trips that the travel industry can offer, for an Africa many others will never have the chance to experience. Each inclusion, optional, meal, and accommodation has been hand selected for an experience that encapsulates the spirit of each place in a way that guests will not only see, but truly feel the true soul of the continent.

As part of the itineraries for 2020, guests will experience firsthand the real travel experiences and genuine connections that have helped elevate Trafalgar to its category as travels most awarded brand.  They will Connect with Locals alongside family friend, Stefan, on Cape Town Explorer who will treat them to a delicious Be My Guest traditional braai (barbecue). Guests will Dive into Culture on the Namibia Adventure, learning about the traditions of the OvaHimba tribe, considered to be the last semi-nomadic people of Namibia. Overnights to remember will also include a Stays with Stories at the 5* Oyster Box, South Africa’s #1 hotel.

Importantly, guests will Make a Difference with no less than four JoinTrafalgar experiences including visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust on Wonders of Kenya to learn about the acclaimed Orphans’ Project, providing hope for the future of Kenya’s threatened elephant and rhino populations. These are just a small few of many inclusions on the 11 itineraries across 9 countries.

“For me, it’s hard to describe in words what it is about Africa that penetrates ones spirit” says Gavin Tollman, Trafalgar’s CEO. “As the AgentsFirst brand, we want to ensure our agent partners can sell with confidence that Trafalgar is the right choice for customers. The level of personalization and family love we have put into these trips is unmatchable, and we guarantee that guests will leave with an understanding and passion for Africa in the same that we feel” he concluded.
