Travel Tuesdays: Bush Holiday Specials

The restrictions on movement, never mind life in general, imposed by the coronavirus pandemic must give new meaning to the term ‘itchy feet’. Whether you’re an avid traveller or not, you’re bound to want to leap out of your armchair and venture forth now that the South African government has declared interprovincial travel okay for both business and leisure.

African Bush Holidays For All

AfricaStay has pivoted way ahead of the rest, getting the basics down for their new division – Holiday
Packages by AfricaStay – just before lockdown. “In the middle of the global crisis, we were able to
retain our core team and focus on the rapid transformation necessary for survival in the travel
industry today,” says Marian Sandu, director at AfricaStay. “We reinvented ourselves, learned new
skills, and put all our effort into completing our new booking portal for tourists and travel agents.
We’re excited to be able to launch Holiday Packages by AfricaStay as South Africa embraces the
travel potential that comes with Level 2 status.”

Historically AfricaStay has focused on Zanzibar, but with the technology wrapped up in this new
portal the company will be able to offer holiday packages anywhere in the world. “We are very
happy that South Africa is opening up for travel, with rates that appeal across the board. High-end
destinations are offering packages normally aimed at the wealthy at rates low enough to make them
accessible to middle-class travellers.”

Support Local

Look local for instant gratification because prices have never been more appealing. And book those
international travel packages while the rates are low. It is a case of book now, travel later, while avid
travellers wait for borders to reopen.
Some destinations are already in the happy position of being fully booked for the near future. It’s a
good idea to keep an eye on this platform, which also invites collaboration from travel consultants
who may use it to promote their own products. Users will be able to search for holiday packages,
flights, activities and experiences to suit both budget and availability.
With so many more people working out of office as the norm, what’s to stop you from working
anywhere else in the world?
If you fancy a short break, there’s no better place to restore heart and soul than in the African bush.
