An 11-day adventure in the “land of a thousand hills” is experienced in Discover Rwanda.

Luxury accommodations at One & Only Nyungwe House and at One & Only Gorilla’s Nest provide a front row seat to Rwanda’s natural beauty, culture and wildlife. Learn what makes for the perfect cup of tea during a fascinating walk through a tea plantation, enjoy panoramic views of the rainforest from a scenic helicopter flight, and a tree planted in each guest’s name leaves a legacy in Rwanda. 11 days, from $22,595 pp.
An enchanting new safari lodge, Xigera (“Kee-jera”), opening in June and set in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta will be exclusive to select itineraries and reinvent the very idea of what it means to experience the African bush. Xigera is the newest member in the portfolio of our sister brand, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection.
As an active partner and supporter of the not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation’s sustainability work and projects, African Travel is dedicated to protecting wildlife, reducing the environmental impact on the planet, and ensuring the communities visited remain vibrant for future generations. The 2020 brochure reflects the “people” pillar of this commitment, encouraging the cultures, traditions and arts of the communities they visit continue to thrive.
African Travel does this through their sponsorship of micro-enterprises, and community-based tourism initiatives that build positive futures for community members and their families—especially children. For each guest who books an itinerary in East Africa, a contribution is made towards a child’s education in Africa. South Africa booked itineraries support a Cape Town women’s sewing cooperative through African Travel, Inc.’s partnership with Sexy Socks. The colorful, eco-friendly bamboo socks will be donated to children in need so they can wear them to school. Guests will also receive a pair.
Reducing environmental impact through travel is also essential to African Travel, Inc. They are committed and dedicated to eliminating all avoidable single-use plastics in their offices and out on the road by 2022. The company introduced their e-docs program in 2018, giving you the option to receive travel documents digitally and have a tree planted in your name.
