Reducing our cost to you for Safaris

As we all are a well aware the Covid pandemic caused mayhem to the International travel industry and we, at Destinations Africa, were not an exception to being adversely affected.

Covid is now OVER and travel is back from around the world. Africa is wide open to safaris again and there are amazing places to visit. Yes, Qantas has been very naughty by charging ridiculously expensive air fares, but these are comng down since Joyce was called to explain things to the Senate. We expect further drops in the near future.

We also recommend that our clients consider Singapore Airlines as a great alternative. It takes a little longer as there is a three hour stop over in Singapore, but this has the advantage of breaking up a very long flight. You also arrive in Joburg at 06.00 and so avoid paying for an overnight hotel as you must do if you fly Qantas. We can then get you straight to your next destination without delay. This flight is generally cheaper than Qantas as well, so a double saving is available!

Destinations Africa is also reducing the overall cost of safaris by reducing our margins by 30%. This gives you an unprecedented opportunity to travel with a very competitive cost. Airlines increased their fares by up to 50% but they are coming down. Game Lodges all over Africa have also increased their rates. Destinations Africa have decreased our rates to give you back some of the increases of the airfares and lodges. We can give you a safari at a lower cost than if you booked directly on line. This means that it costs you nothing for our services, expertise, knowledge, recommendations and support that Destinations Africa gives you. Just read the wonderful testaments given by our clients on Google and in our web site.

Although Africa has been inundated by Americans this year we can still get you superior lodges for 2023 and 2024. Our very special connections with African suppliers always stands us in good stead.

The animal sightings have been superb as we select and approve only he very best across a wide range of rates and special offers.
