Luxury African safari outfitter, Great Safaris, is responding to the popularity and interest of its experiential travel options by expanding its ability to offer customized experiences in Africa based on the unique interests of its clientele.
Experiential travel has become a predominate trend in the travel industry, and Great Safaris is capitalizing on this trend by offering customized African experiences crafted around the continent's culture, food, wildlife, adventure, photography, and golfing. âAfrica is in a "sweet spot" for experiential travelersâ, says Dave Herbert, Chief Experiential Officer of US-based Great Safaris. "We must not lose site of the fact that suppliers and operators must continue to innovate, or we will lose this edge." Great Safaris is innovating its experiential travel options by working with its on-the-ground partners to develop new experiences that meet travelers' desires for authenticity, environmental care, and local cultural engagement. Some of the new customized experiences that Great Safaris is adding to its portfolio include horseback riding along South Africa's Wild Cost, eating Bunny Chow with the locals in KwaZulu-Natal, a coffee tour in Mpumalanga's Sabie Valley, bread baking in the Cape Winelands, and golfing at award winning courses like Leopard Creek and Gary Player Country Club. These experiences allow travelers to get beyond the standard itinerary and create truly unique memories. Great Safaris' partner Renier Friis notes that âour American clients want more than a standard bus tour and to see the attractions. They want to visit the country and make a real differenceâ.
