Global property group Trafalgar, which falls under The Travel Corporation, is launching holidays in Africa. With a 72-year legacy in providing holidays, escorted tours and tour packages some of the world’s most iconic destinations, will now extend to the continent with specially curated itineraries.
As part of the the range of “only with Trafalgar” experiences, Africa’s natural landscapes, historic cities and indigenous cultures will take centre stage in 10 hand-crafted trips to countries such as South Africa, Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
“When we speak to travellers, Africa is always very high on their wish-list. It is my hope that by having an iconic brand like Trafalgar and the legacy of the Tollman family coming together as one, guests can experience this extraordinary continent in a powerful way and with absolute ease,” says Gavin Tollman, CEO of Trafalgar. “From the moment guests go on holiday to the moment they leave, Trafalgar has taken care of absolutely everything. The Trafalgar difference lies not only in our expertise in defining the itineraries, but also in the way we deliver them.”

According to Trafalgar, guests will uncover the stories behind the destination, from sharing coffee and vetkoek with a Damara family in Namibia to joining the De Waal family at their Stellenbosch winery for a traditional Cape lunch, wine-tasting and insights into their family history.
What’s more is that guests will have the option of doing good through Trafalgar’s series of partnerships with sustainable projects in Africa such as the Wilderness Wildlife Trust in Botswana, The Cape Leopard Trust, Endangered Wildlife Trust and the Bushmans Kloof Rock Art in South Africa.
Says Tollman: “When travellers journey to other parts of the world, it’s an opportunity not only to engage with the locals, but also to help someone. Our guests have an opportunity to contribute directly to these initiatives through our visit.”
New in Trafalgar’s 2019 Africa programme:
- African Safari Adventure
- Best of South Africa
- Namibia Explorer
- Victoria Falls Experience
- Botswana Delta Experience
- Essence of South Africa
“I’m really hoping that we give our travellers an opportunity to see Africa and finish their time there with absolute joy. Because Africa is one of those places, when you leave it, you understand the very reason we travel.”
