You Need a Safari Expert to Plan an African Getaway
Did you know that I was born in Pretoria, South Africa? Or that my husband has lived in Nigeria? We know Africa! Africa remains one of the most desired and least understood continents. Is a photo safari of the African plains on your bucket list; do you want to follow in the footsteps of Gorillas in Rwanda? How about sunning yourself on the stunning beaches of Seychelles? Africa calls to many, but if you don't use a travel agent specializing in African travel, your trip will be wanting. Booking travel can happen quickly and easily online. However, African safaris require some extra steps. I will reveal ten reasons you should hire an African travel expert when planning your trip.
They're Safari Authorities
Travel advisors are experts due to personal traveling experience; I understand the significance of planning trips that aren't logistical nightmares. I send multiple couples to Africa every year and have traveled extensively throughout the continent. I know the best hotels, safari guides, and countries to visit.
Planning an African safari is difficult fifty-four countries in Africa make it challenging to find the perfect camp or lodge without guidance. Allow me to send you a curated list of quality options guaranteed to fit your desires.
They Know the Logistics
Travel logistics include airports, dates, drop-offs, flights, pickups, times, and transfers. Allow an expert to sort out all the details for you. I have planned a honeymoon that starts with a city escape in Cape Town, followed by a safari through the African Bush and Madagascar. Do you want to put that together by yourself?
Many believe using a travel advisor is more expensive than booking independently. In reality, I know where to find the best deals. I know when to book, and I can price match and price protect.
A travel advisor will determine your preferences and refine your plans. I want you to have the trip of your dreams, but I also want it to flow well. Allow me to use my expertise to perfect your vision.
Your relationship with your travel advisor shouldn't end on the day you pay. I will support you from the booking throughout your African adventure and when you come home. You will have my cell number and will be able to reach me 24/7; you never have to worry about getting a call center.
You Won't Make Mistakes.
It's easy to overlook things when planning and booking a getaway on your own—travel advisors specializing in getting you from Point A to Point B without incident.
They Have Contacts
Travel advisors have a directory of local contacts beyond camps and lodges. These contacts include guides and other professional organizations. If you experience any trouble, I will know who to call.
They'll Connect the Dots.
Your trips should transpire seamlessly--from dietary needs to medical concerns and everything in between. A travel specialist will help you understand what to wear (don't wear the colonial safari outfit with a pith helmet; you will look silly!), how much cash you'll need, and much more.
Extra Layer of Protection
You should purchase travel insurance if something goes wrong. As a travel advisor, I always recommend insurance. If 2020 taught us anything, it is that the world can turn on a dime. Protect your monetary investment.
