Saga Holidays adds seven new Africa itineraries to its Worldwide programme
With one of the most diverse programmes to the continent already on the market, Saga have added seven fantastic new holidays to its range of existing itineraries, offering its customers new, unique and exciting experiences.
The new Africa product has been introduced, alongside a wealth of exciting holidays, following the launch of Saga Holidays new Worldwide, River Cruises, Europe & The Mediterranean and The British Isles brochures.
New adventures for customers include a stay in a private Bush Camp located near Kruger National Park set up exclusively for saga guests, a 12 night tour charting the mighty Zambezi including a 3 night safari cruise along the river and a new extraordinary journey exploring the landscapes, wildlife, tribes and traditions of Ethiopia. Saga have also added an escorted tour of Kenya reintroducing the country to its holiday portfolio and a 7 night all-inclusive stay in Victoria Falls.
Stuart Douglass Lee, Holiday Creator for Saga commented:
“Africa is such a fascinatingly diverse continent and I want to give our customers the chance to explore each and every aspect of these amazing countries. I am always on the lookout for the next opportunity.
The introduction of new flight routes, such as Ethiopian Airlines now flying directly from Addis Ababa into Victoria Falls, helps to open up the continent making it so much more accessible”.
