The global pandemic has caused many delays and uncertainty, especially when it comes to travel. However, the need to explore has been ingrained into the very fiber of the human species from the beginning of time, and we are confident international travel will inevitably return in 2021. This is why so many people are booking ahead for 2022 dream trips, with luxury travel at the centre of their travel wishlist.

Reasons to Book Your Next Holiday For 2021 or 2022

Flexibility

With global travel restrictions having changed on more than one occasion our partner lodges and camps are offering never-seen-before flexibility when it comes to bookings. It is now common to be able to defer your trip for up to a year without incurring any penalty. With nearly 20 years industry experience, we have long-standing relationships with many of the leading property suppliers in Africa and our multi-award winning Travel Experts are happy to help secure your next trip, ensuring you can book with confidence.

Limited Availability

Availability for 2021 is tight with many people who were due to travel in 2020 having deferred to 2021. If you’re dreaming of a safari during peak season or are wanting to stay at iconic properties, we recommend looking to later in 2021 or 2022, but you still need to book as soon as possible if you want to secure your desired travel date and destination. If you are determined to travel in 2021, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Travel Experts who will be happy to arrange a 2021 trip for you and your travel companions.

Conservation

An African safari is undoubtedly one of the most coveted travel experiences and the life-long memories you make alongside loved ones are only one reason to embark on this unforgettable journey: a luxury African safari trip benefits the places you visit. A Mahlatini safari directly helps to employ people in rural communities, educate children from local communities, protect wildlife and preserve the wildlands of Africa. Without responsible travel to these remote areas, it becomes evermore difficult to protect them. Responsible travel and safaris are a lifeline to these remote, beautiful areas and those who call it home and we will continue to help preserve them.

Offers

With nearly 20 years industry experience, we can say with complete honesty that the special offers running at some of our partner properties are some of the most generous we’ve ever seen! Our suppliers are as keen to host guests as the guests are to travel, and with strict safety protocols in place and longevity in mind, they are offering these special savings to reward pioneering travellers who want to be some of the first to explore once again.

2021 and 2022 travel is the perfect opportunity to slow down and revert to how we used to holiday – with fewer, but longer breaks. With so many of us having to cancel or change plans for important life milestones, now is the time to start planning the belated celebrations. A lesson learned from 2020: life is worth celebrating! Many of us want to ensure our next, long-awaited trip will be more mindful, experiential and with a defined purpose.
