African Travel Inc. Unveils New Custom Pride Safaris

Luxury safari outfitter African Travel, Inc. has introduced personalized journeys for the LGBTQ+ community, including a new "Southern Africa President’s Safari."

President of Africa Travel, Inc., Sherwin Banda, who was recently included as one of Robb Report’s "16 LGBTQ+ Visionaries in Luxury in 2021," is excited about African Travel’s focus on inclusivity and their new journey. “LGBTQ+ travel is personal for me, having grown up in Africa and lived through some of its most horrific  times,” said Banda in a press release. “Every one of our team members was either born in Africa, lived in Africa, or traveled to Africa multiple times, so when we say, ‘We Know Africa,’ you can depend on us to match the right Africa with the right client, like LGBTQ+ travelers.”   

The “Southern Africa President’s Safari” explores southern Africa’s top highlights while delving into the region’s diverse wildlife, landscape and culture. Travelers can discover Cape Town’s sights—such as meeting African penguins or trying their hand at drumming at GOLD Restaurant—along with its winelands. At Kapama Private Game Reserve, they can spot the "Big Five" on a game drive or walking safari, and visit Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe while traversing down the Zambezi River. The safari is balanced with activities that will appeal to people of all ages, and includes family-friendly accommodations. 

African Travel has also curated safari ideas to meet the different needs of LGBTQ+ guests. The new "Pride Guide," which includes the "President’s Safari," offers travel tips that advisors can share with their clients.

The "Pride Guide" also includes safaris for different types of travelers. Art and culture lovers will be drawn to "Experience South Africa" for its progressive access in Cape Town, meeting Ardmore artisans, and staying at iconic lodges and hotels. Those looking to explore Africa with friends, family or that special person, while also ticking off the Big Five, the Marine Big Five and iconic landscapes, can opt for "South Africa’s Natural Wonders."

Each safari features Africa's wildlife and rich culture and is customized by a dedicated safari team to suit every guest's interest and travel style. Personally vetted lodges and camps that focus on inclusion and sensitivity, along with African Travel's signature collection of sustainable, "Make Travel Matter" experiences are also included.

With local offices in Africa and experts based across North America, African Travel’s 24/7 concierge care ensures guest’s well-being while safely traveling the continent.
