We ask each couple as many questions as we need to create their special once-in-a-lifetime trip
Charlotte, NC (Vocus) October 19, 2010
Hills of Africa Travel, a premier luxury Africa safari tour provider, reports an increase in newlyweds interested in customized, sustainable tourism honeymoon safaris throughout Southern Africa.
Above all, honeymooners want a romantic and luxurious vacation, but they also crave culture, excitement, and something out of the ordinary. Whether honeymooners want a safari vacation with lavish five-star accommodations or a tented-safari experience, Hills of Africa Travel customizes every trip to each couple’s desires and lifestyle needs while ensuring sustainable tourism.
These eco-friendly safaris also add substantial value to the lives of the inhabitants and the wildlife of each area and camp that honeymooners visit. Whenever couples stay at an eco-tourism establishment, donate to a local project, visit a community school, or purchase art from locals, they give the community a tangible benefit.
“We ask each couple as many questions as we need to create their special once-in-a-lifetime trip,” says Sandy Salle, CEO of Hills of Africa Travel. “Every couple’s dream honeymoon is different, and every couple has their own view of what giving back means. We balance their needs with the needs of the communities they’ll visit to continue the sustainable tourism cycle.”
A typical honeymoon trip might venture to Tanzania’s Manyara Ranch Conservancy to experience the ultimate game-drive safari, bush walks, and horseback safaris. Guests to the Ranch also have unique opportunities to visit the local primary school and enjoy a Maasai cultural visit where they’ll learn about the Maasai culture and lifestyle, directly from the locals.
Salle notes, “We’ve found that honeymooners love to share their lives with the locals. When you share yourself and your experiences with them, you open their world and mind to new discoveries and possibilities. That’s one of the best ways to give back. What could be more rewarding?”
