World Elephant Day
African Travel, Inc.’s New Safari Takes Mothers to the Motherland
Just in time for Mother’s Day, African Travel, Inc. is unveiling an all-new Safari Vacation Package designed to delight and indulge. The award-winning safari outfitter, who was recently voted one of Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best,” developed “Cape Town & Big Five Kruger Safari” to showcase the best of South Africa’s sights, sounds and flavors. As an added Mother’s Day bonus, guests will receive a safari hat and travel tote/backpack.
“Few experiences can compare to traveling with your family, and South Africa is at the top of nearly everyone’s bucket list,” said Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel, Inc. “We believe the best gift is the gift of travel, and we’ve created this package at an exceptional value so that the whole family can join and treat Mom to a journey she’ll never forget.”
This 10-day journey begins in Cape Town at The Commodore, a luxurious hotel located at the highest point of the historic Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Four days at leisure allow families ample time to explore the city's grandeur, from iconic Table Mountain to the cobblestoned streets of the quaint and colorful Malay Quarter. The Cape Winelands, Cape Peninsula, Boulders Beach and Robben Island are ideal day trip ideas, as is spending the afternoon in Cape Town’s legendary shopping district. On the last evening in Cape Town, guests enjoy dinner at the Portswood Hotel’s Quarterdeck Restaurant, which specializes in traditional Cape Malay cooking.
Mthethomusa Game Reserve, adjacent to Kruger National Park, is the next stop on this itinerary, heralding a kaleidoscope of wildlife including South Africa’s coveted “Big Five.” Twice-daily game drives intimately introduce guests to the sights and sounds of the bush and expert rangers navigate the bush to provide the best possible experience and photo opportunities. Savory breakfasts, lunches and dinners are included and Mom is even treated to a complimentary 30-minute back, neck and shoulder massage at the lodge (as is everyone else).
