Globus Unveils 2017 African Safaris and Tented Camp Stays


LITTLETON, Colorado – July 27, 2016 – As Globus unveils four, 10- to 15-day 2017 African Safaris, the company invites travelers to watch elephant herds thunder across the savannah grasslands, savor cocktails and conversation amongst zebras, gazelles and giraffes and wake up in a glamorous safari camp to views of towering Mount Kilimanjaro.

“We bring travelers face-to-face with elephants and chimpanzees in safe sanctuaries, head-to-head with Cape Town chefs in their own kitchens and toe-to-toe with Maasai tribes as they join their chant-driven dances,” said Scott Nisbet, chief executive officer and president 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.”

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 to Kenya: A Timeless Safari and Tanzania: The Serengeti & Beyond  to Kenya & Tanzania: The Safari Experience – 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, including two NEW itineraries: 11-day Jewels of Africa and 11-day East Africa Private Safari.

Whether going 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.
