TTC's African Travel, Inc. (ATI) has recently launched personalized journeys for the LGBTQ+ community. ATI is featuring LGBTQ+ safari experiences and travel tips in a new Pride Guide and on-demand LGBTQ+ Pride Webinar.
The award-winning, luxury safair outfitter focuses exclusively on Africa, and its president, Sherwin Banda, was recently featured as one of Robb Report’s 16 LGBTQ+ Visionaries in Luxury in 2021. Banda is excited about African Travel’s focus on inclusivity and educating Travel Advisors and travellers on safaris that meet the needs of various LGBTQ+ guests.
“LGBTQ+ travel is personal for me and knowing more than one million Canadians identify as LGBTQ+ and we are thrilled to offer our Pride safaris and connect them to experience my homeland,” says Banda. “Every one of our team members was either born in Africa, lived in Africa or travelled to Africa multiple times, so when we say, ‘We Know Africa,’ you can depend on us to match the right Africa with the right client, including LGBTQ+ travellers.”
ATI has created a suite of content for advisors to use including a customizable version of the Pride Guide flyers, and social content. Advisors can also invite clients to view the LGBTQ+ Pride Webinar.
The Pride Guide includes safari ideas for different type of travellers. Art and culture lovers will be drawn to African Travel’s Experience South Africa for its progressive access in Cape Town, meeting one-of-a-kind Ardmore artisans and indulging in laid back luxury at iconic lodges and hotels. Clients looking to explore Africa with friends, family or that special person, while also ticking off the Big 5, the Marine Big 5 and iconic landscapes, will enjoy South Africa’s Natural Wonders.
Each safari features Africa’s incredible wildlife and rich culture and is customized by a dedicated safari team - many of which are LGBTQ+ - to every guest's interest and travel style.
Furthermore, personally vetted lodges and camps that focus on inclusion and sensitivity, along with TTC's collection of sustainable MAKE TRAVEL MATTER experiences are always included.
With local offices in Africa and experts based across North America, African Travel’s 24/7 concierge care ensures guest’s well-being while safely travelling the continent.
