Globus Unveils Adventure Tours with Safaris and Tented Camp Stays to
Africa-Bound Travelers in 2015

LITTLETON, Colorado – July 24, 2014 – One-third (33.8%) of travelers express a strong interest in visiting Africa.* And it’s no wonder, considering the very simple fact that Africa is no ordinary continent. Experiencing Africa shouldn’t be ordinary. Now, as Globus unveils 2015 Africa vacations, the tour company is ensuring travelers enjoy five (5) extraordinary Africa vacations, including one NEW getaway to East Africa.

“While others drive by the “Big 5” in Africa, we drive our travelers right up to the exotic animals. While others are invited to taste South African wine, we encourage travelers to blend their own. And while some travelers may have the chance to snap a photo of giraffes, ours actually feed them,” said Scott Nisbet, chief executive officer of the Globus family of brands. “In other words, we march to a different drum – or a different djembe – thanks to our commitment to get inside, hands-on and behind-the-scenes with our Local Favorites inclusions.”

As a result, as part of its 2015 offerings, Globus takes travelers into the bush – and brings a chef with them. The tour company introduces travelers to locals, at their own dinner tables. And, when Globus travelers fall asleep at night, they do so in the comfort of luxurious lodges and tents that blend into the landscape and allow the outside in. And all of those experiences are just a sampling from ONE (1) vacation, the NEW! 12-Day East Africa, In Search of the Big Five. All for a surprisingly good price (from $5,139, land-only).

In fact, all of Globus’ Africa vacations are extraordinary, offering magical moments on safari, Local Favorites and luxury accommodations. In addition, every one of Globus’ Africa vacations – from the Splendors of South Africa and Victoria Falls and Tanzania: The Serengeti & Beyond to Classic Kenya; A Tented Camp Safari – are “Small-Group Discoveries” which means there are never more than 20 travelers in each group.

“On vacation, travelers deserve the opportunity to simply enjoy the journey,” said Nisbet. “And that idea couldn’t be more true when exploring a destination as exotic as Africa. Our guests revel in unmatched value, amazing lodges and tented camps, inside visits into the must-see attractions as well as fun activities such as game watching from the comfort of open-air Land Rovers.”

Globus’ touring vacations of Africa range from 10- to 15-days and feature Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

And, with five (5) travel packages – from 9- to 15-days – Monograms (Globus’ sister brand) introduces independent travelers to such awe-inspiring experiences as viewing the wildebeest migration on the endless plains of Serengeti National Park or visiting a colony of African penguins outside Cape Town. On And on Monograms’ Wilds of Botswana & Victoria Falls vacation package, for instance, travelers will walk with San Bushmen in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, explore the Okavango Delta by mokora (dug-out canoe) and visit the mighty Victoria Falls.

When travelers book any Globus family of brands vacation to Southern or East Africa, the company will make a contribution to South Africa National Parks (SANParks) and its Honorary Ranger program to help SAVE THE RHINO by fighting the increase in rhino poaching.
