Contiki taps Africa market
CONTIKI has introduced a new range of trips to Africa, representing the first expansion to a new region since the operator launched adventures in Latin America in 2010.
The decision was inspired by research conducted by the company via passenger surveys, social media and third parties that the youth operator needed to introduce an African offering.
New trips have now been added across South Africa, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Kenya, in addition to five extension trips to either climb the iconic Mt Kilimanjaro, relax on the beaches of Zanzibar or get up close and personal with the gorillas in Uganda.
One of the new products is the seven-day Taste of Tanzania tour priced from $2,932 per person which includes a sunrise ride in a hot air balloon over the Serengeti, as well as explorations of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
An 11-day Cape, Safari, and Falls journey is also on offer which includes trips through the Kruger National Park in South Africa, and the opportunity to take in a view of Victoria Falls. The package is priced from $2,932 per person.
Group sizes are no larger than 20 people and prices include most meals and all entry fees.
