Collette debuts new African safari brochure

Following a tremendous uptick in sales growth from advisor partners in the area, Collette debuts its 2024-2025 African safari brochure.
“We have seen some incredible growth from our advisor partners for our tours to Southern and Eastern Africa,” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, chief executive officer at Collette. “We not only want to support this growth, we want to launch it to a new level. We’ve been designing inclusive safari tours for three decades, allowing travellers to get closer to the wildlife, to nature, to culture, and to picturesque landscapes that they’ve only dreamed about exploring. This brochure is a great tool for advisors to share with prospective travellers interested in experiencing an African safari or an unforgettable adventure.”

About the Collette Connection program

  The Collette Connection on-demand print service launched earlier this year allows advisors to order the safari brochure with an attached personalized letter to their clients.
“The Collette Connection program has gotten off to an incredible start with our Explorations brochure,” said Christian Leibl-Cote, executive vice president of global sales at Collette. “So far, it has given advisors an opportunity to grow their business in a personalized way and we’re confident that we will see similar engagement and success with this safari brochure.”

Intimate African safari tours

  All African safari tours have a maximum of 18 travellers, falling under Collette’s small group Explorations travel style. Tailored specifically for a more intimate size group they allow for more immersive experiences. On safaris this results in travellers enjoying creative comforts in lodges, tented camps, and safari boats in close proximity to parks and game reserves.
For instance, on “Wilderness of Southern Africa: Safari by Land and Water,” travellers embark on seven game drives and three game cruises with an opportunity to see a wider range of wildlife. Other highlights include a visit to Victoria Falls for a home-hosted lunch, a journey through Chobe and Hwange National Parks, and a farewell dinner on the banks of the Zambezi River. Seats on this tour are still available as early as 1 August 2024, for prices starting at $9,449 CAD pp.
Upcoming in 2025, “Namibia and South Africa: Epic Landscapes and Wildlife” explores Etosha and Kruger National Parks. The 16-day itinerary also features game drives in each country, a journey through the Namib Desert, which is home to the world’s largest sand dunes, a drive along the Skeleton Coast, an area where shipwrecks are plentiful, and a home-hosted dinner with a Capetonian family.
