It’s been 72 years in the making and now Trafalgar finally pays homage to the Tollman family homeland with the launch of a dedicated Africa programme.
This is a pivotal moment in Trafalgar’s brand history with its rich story around the family-owned and operated company with its roots firmly still in Africa. The program will deliver unrivalled expertise, immeasurable passion, real-life stories and connection to people and places like no other.
Trafalgar will be connecting travellers to the African continent in a way like no other as the Tollmans open their hearts to share stories, secrets and hidden gems of their home, giving guests priceless travel opportunities. The program will consist of smaller group trips of up to 15 guests, with accomplished photographer and renowned African guide Mike Myers creating all the beautiful photography in the brochure.
Guests will receive unrivalled access to the people and places behind the stories – with Trafalgar creating exclusive experiences for guests so they can live the good life in every destination they visit. Trafalgar’s unique Stays With Stories have created an exceptional, unrivalled African portfolio of opportunities for guests. The stunning 5 star The Oyster Box has hosted royalty, from the likes of Monaco’s royal couple on their honeymoon to King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu and now Trafalgar guests will stay there too on the Best of South Africa trip.
Trafalgar aims to make a difference in Africa in many ways as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability with the various JoinTrafalgar initiatives along with The Travel Corporation’s TreadRight Foundation including wildlife initiatives, sustainable tourism practices and preserving and protecting all the communities that they visit. South Africa needs vital support as a result of ongoing water issues in Cape Town – South Africa Tourism has a goal to have 5 million visitors by 2020 – Trafalgar aims to help them achieve this. Trafalgar is working to help create more employment opportunities, whilst also protecting and preserving the destination.
The program encompasses 9 countries, 10 handcrafted trips, three trip styles (Country Explorer, Regional Explorer, Mini Stay) with trips commencing December 2018 and January 2019, all trips can be found on Trafalgar.com.
Early payment discount: Guests who book and pay in full by 1 November, 2018 will save up to 10% off your trip.
