While many forward thinkers are already planning their 2019 African adventure, according to Abercrombie & Kent’s Regional Sales & Marketing Director for East & Southern Africa, John Round-Turner, it’s not too late to book travel to Southern Africa in late 2018.
“Contrary to popular belief, there is still space in Southern Africa in high-end properties in the last quarter of 2018, particularly in the first two weeks of December,” John Round-Turner said.
“If you know who to ask, you can still find quality options in Kruger, Sabi Sands, Botswana and in Cape Town.”
Abercrombie & Kent, with offices across the continent and experts on the ground in Southern Africa, has access to the most sought-after luxury city, safari and coastal properties in late 2018.
John Round-Turner says agents and travellers shouldn’t be deterred by media coverage of recent water shortages.
“It’s rain season now and we’ve seen good rains in Cape Town and the Western Cape in recent weeks, with dams at nearly 50% of capacity already and the expectation they will keep filling over the next two months. In short, there’s no reason not to sell South Africa travel for this year,” he said.
