The Globus family of brands is inviting travellers to make their African dreams a reality with a series of nine- to 15-day African Safaris next year, including two new Cosmos tours – the nine-day On Safari in Kenya and the 14-day South Africa: From the Cape to Kruger.
“Our tours are designed to combine the best of immersive experiences – from encountering chimps and elephants in safe sanctuaries to meeting Cape Town chefs in their own kitchens,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director in Canada for the Globus family of brands, whose escorted tour portfolios comprise top-rated Globus and value-brand Cosmos.
All of Globus’ Africa vacations are Small Group Discovery tours with a maximum of 20 travellers per departure. In addition, every one of Globus’ Africa vacations – from the Splendors of South Africa & Victoria Falls to Kenya: A Classic Safari and Tanzania: The Serengeti & Beyond to Kenya & Tanzania: The Safari Experience – offers travellers magical moments, Local Favorites (culinary and cultural insights) and luxury accommodations.
For those looking for more affordable access to Africa, for the first time Cosmos has added Africa, with two itineraries for 2018, priced from $3,697 (excluding air). Solo travellers can even avoid the single supplement, thanks to Cosmos’ Guaranteed Share program which will match travellers with a fellow traveller of the same sex.
In addition to offering tours to and through Africa, Monograms (the company’s brand of pre-tested itineraries for independent travellers) gives travellers access to private safaris for an out-of-the box vacation. Monograms’ itineraries range from nine to 15 days.
And when travellers book any Globus family of brands vacation to Southern or East Africa, the company will make a contribution to South Africa National Parks (SANParks) and its Honorary Ranger program to SAVE THE RHINO as well as the LION RECOVERY FUND which is part of the Wildlife Conservation Network.
Travellers that book and deposit any 2018 Globus Asia, Africa or South Pacific vacation by May 1 next year will automatically save 5% on the land package. Cosmos travellers booking by Sept. 12 will save $50 per person.
