Africa Small-Group Discoveries & Safaris from Globus & Monograms

August 29, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
It's no wonder nearly four in 10 travelers are interested in exploring Africa.* It delivers some of the most jaw-dropping travel experiences imaginable. In Tanzania, travelers can admire herds of elephant as they thunder across the savannah grasslands or see a pride of lions lounging in the sun. In Kenya, they can visit some of the most remarkable game reserves in the world. And, in South Africa, experiences range from fascinating city life to enthralling game drives. No matter where they travel in Africa, travelers are sure to encounter experiences of a lifetime. And, in 2013, Globus is delivering just that with five (5) Small Group Discovery tours (escorted vacations of 20 people or less), starting at less than $3,300 as well as 10 new destinations on seven (7) itineraries with Monograms.

"From game watching and wine tastings to luxury tented camp stays and tribal visits, in 2013, we're providing travelers unparalleled experiences" said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands. "We not only introduce travelers to each destination's must-see sites, our tours showcase the hidden gems and behind-the-scenes activities that brings to life each destination's culture."

Valuing the plethora of experiences Africa inspires, Globus offers travelers a blend of outdoor adventure, cultural immersion, luxury accommodations and time to simply relax and enjoy the scenery with its 2013 Africa adventures.

"On vacation, travelers deserve the opportunity to simply enjoy the journey," said Nisbet. "And that simple idea couldn't be more true when exploring a destination as exotic as Africa. With us, travelers enjoy unmatched value, amazing lodges and luxury tented camps, inside visits into the must-see attractions as well as fun activities such as game watching from the comfort of Land Rovers."

Globus' touring vacations of Africa range from 10- to 15-days and feature Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa. NEW for 2013 is the 13-day Exploring South Africa vacation. On this Small Group Discovery tour, travelers will explore Cape Town, Franschhoek, Oudtshoorn, Knysna, Johannesburg, the Mthetomusha Private Game Reserve and everything in between.

And, with seven (7) travel packages ranging from 9- to 15-days, for the first time, Monograms (Globus' sister brand), is introducing independent travelers to such awe-inspiring experiences as gorilla trekking in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, tracking the rare desert adapted black rhino by foot in one of Namibia's stunning landscapes, as well as a relaxing stay on one of Zanzibar's remote beaches. Adding to its already impressive roster of 2013 Africa getaways, Monograms is adding two new Africa itineraries for 2013: 11-day Essence of Namibia and 9-day Classic Kenya Flying Safari.

Finally, in 2013, when travelers book any Globus family vacation to Southern or East Africa, the company will make a contribution to South Africa National Parks (SANParks) and its Honorary Ranger program to help SAVE THE RHINO by fighting the increase in rhino poaching.
