Africa hot for groups

Goway’s Africa team leader, Akke Engelbertink, reports that group requests for Africa are booming, especially in East and Southern Africa. Akke has just returned from an extensive familiarization trip to Kenya and Tanzania to inspect Goway’s preferred lodges and search for unique, innovative and interactive experiences for group travellers. The trip was a great success and Engelbertink and her team are well updated on all aspects of travel to Africa. According to Engelbertink, Africa offers a vast and diverse range of group travel possibilities: from mysterious and seductive souks and oases of Arab North Africa, to impenetrable jungles of West Africa, to the vast savannahs and wildlife of East Africa to the sophistication of South Africa. Goway’s Africa Group Specialists are experts at developing authentic experiences for agents and their clients. These range from immersing in the colourful chaos of markets and village life; witnessing the annual wildebeest migration; helping the community at a local school or orphanage; staying overnight in a deluxe safari camp; sipping aromatic tea under a Bedouin tent; trekking through the forest on a gorilla safari or even following in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela. Along with their expertise, Goway Groups also provides competitive pricing, innovative itineraries, assistance with promotions and advertising, assistance with designing flyers and presentation folders, comprehensive documentation and Group Information Kits. Group quotes include a detailed itinerary and competitive land and air quotes in net dollars. Depending on the size of the group, tour directors often travel free. (
