Globus Unveils Safaris and Tented Camp Stays, Offering Travelers Everything

They’re Looking For From A to Zimbabwe

LITTLETON, Colorado – July 29, 2015 – Isn’t it time to step out of the ordinary and into the awe-inspiring? The team at Globus thinks so. Now, as Globus unveils 2016 Africa vacations, the tour company is ensuring travelers enjoy five (5) extraordinary Africa vacations, from South and East Africa to Kenya and Tanzania.

“While others drive by the “Big 5” in Africa, our travelers wake up to the sweeping views of the savannah, home to these exotic animals. While others simply go into the bush, our travelers can take a memorable elephant ride through the bush or feed a heard of elephants at the Hoedspruit Center for Endangered Species,” 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.”

For example, as part of its 2016 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, Globus’ 12-Day, Small Group Discovery tour called, East Africa: In Search of the Big Five (priced from $5,329).

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

“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 spending time with professional rangers and game trackers in rugged, yet comfortable 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles.”

In addition to offering tours to and through Africa, Monograms (Globus’ sister brand) offers travelers all-in-one packages and private safaris for an out-of-the box vacation. Monograms’ itineraries range from nine (9) to 15 days.

Whether they go with Globus or Monograms, 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.
