African Travel has introduced new small-group options that allow travelers to explore Africa in their 'private bubble.'

African Travel's small-group safaris will accept a maximum of six people per journey and will depart with a minimum of four guests. 

"We are seeing people looking to travel, and we know there is huge pent-up demand -- especially for Africa," said Brett Tollman, CEO of The Travel Corporation. "Our brands such as African Travel have crafted trips that are absolutely right for next year, and our protocols are the best in the industry. We're ready to take our guests on the most amazing vacations in 2021."

Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel, said that one in ten Africans are employed through tourism. In partnership with the TreadRight Foundation, African Travel is dedicated to supporting the people, wildlife and planet by Making Travel Matter. 

The new small-group options include:

Kenya in Style: While staying at unique luxurious camps and lodges, guests are treated to Big Five game-viewing, spotting the 'Samburu Five' (East African oryx, reticulated giraffe, Grevy's zebra, gerenuk and Somali ostrich) and participating in conservation projects like tracking lions at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

Tanzania Wildlife Odyssey: This safari explores Tanzania's wildlife-rich game reserves including Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire while bringing guests to new corners not often visited. On the northern edge of the Serengeti, guests spend time in a Maasai community and enjoy night drives and walking safaris that are unavailable in the neighboring national parks.

Spotlight on Southern Africa: This classic safari has all the South Africa highlights from the top of Table Mountain to the tip of Africa and includes Victoria Falls. Guests enjoy private tours of Cape Town's coastal delights, land and water safaris in Zimbabwe and a visit to a private game reserve that has some of the most endangered and fascinating wildlife.

Incredible Southern Africa: This safari invites guests to discover Africa like a local in ultralux style. Guests explore Africa's past and present in private tours of Cape Town, including meeting Christo Brand -- a former prison guard of Robben Island and personal friend of Nelson Mandela -- before safaris near Kruger National Park and Victoria Falls where they'll see how wildlife is being protected for future generations.

With guests delaying their travel plans until next year, many safaris have limited availability. African Travel offers flexible deposit options to encourage guests to book with confidence.
