GLENDALE, Calif., August 19, 2021: African Travel, Inc., an award-winning, luxury safari outfitter focusing exclusively on Africa, has launched exceptional personalized journeys for the LGBTQ+ community including a new Southern Africa President’s Safari.
President of Africa Travel, Inc., Sherwin Banda, who was recently featured 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. “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.”
Banda’s trip was curated based on how travel needs change throughout one’s life, whether you’re single, married or a parent.
Explor””Traveling to Africa when I was single is different than traveling with my partner and now with my family,” Banda said. “I’m sharing how Africa has evolved, with the many wonders it has to offer for people of all ages and am very excited to invite other families to experience my homeland.”
The Southern Africa President’s Safari explores southern Africa’s bucket list highlights while also delving into the region’s diverse culture, landscape, and wildlife. You’ll discover Cape Town’s unique sights – such as meeting African penguins and trying your hand at drumming at GOLD Restaurant – along with its scenic winelands. Spot the Big Five on a game drive or walking safari at Kapama Private Game Reserve and discover the breathtaking Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe while traversing down the Zambezi River. The safari is balanced with fun activities for explorers of all ages, including family-friendly accommodations.
Beyond a family safari, African Travel has compiled other safari ideas to meet the different needs of various LGBTQ+ guests. The new Pride Guide , which includes the President’s trip, offers travel tips that are available for advisors to share with clients.
The Pride Guide also includes safaris for different type of travelers. Art and culture lovers will be drawn to our Experience South Africa for its progressive access in Cape Town, meeting one-of-a-kind Ardmore artisans, and indulging in laid back luxury at iconic lodges and hotels. Travelers looking to explore Africa with friends, family or that special person, while also ticking off the Big 5, the Marine Big 5 and iconic landscapes, will enjoy South Africa’s Natural Wonders.
Each safari features Africa’s incredible wildlife and rich culture and is customized by a dedicated safari team- may which are LGBTQ+ – to every guest’s interest and travel style.
