World Expeditions’ new flexible, alternative Africa programme

World Expeditions’ have released their newest Africa itinerary programme, as a direct result of traveller demand for increased flexibility, alternative routes and a focus on sustainable travel.

The new Africa programme offers travellers opportunities to trek, climb, cycle, kayak, cruise and explore Africa in virtually any combination in an expanded number of destinations and with a broader choice of accommodation styles, from luxury to rustic.

Featuring a wider range of accommodation choices, the African programme allows travellers to settle in any situation they desire, whether it be camping, in a hotel, or a mountain hut.

The demand for customisable itineraries has significantly grown, according to World Expeditions’ CEO Sue Badyari, as travellers realize they can choose whatever activities in whatever regions with whatever style of accommodation that suits.

“There is virtually no limit to what’s possible with a customised itinerary, which can be designed for extended family groups or groups of friends, clubs, schools and fundraising groups,” Ms Badyari said.

“We’re hearing that clients love the flexibility to choose exactly what they want and the value for money our trips offer, with essential items like meals, sightseeing and national park fees or camping equipment always included in trip costs.”

World Expeditions has a long history in establishing African adventures for travellers, having pioneered the first commercial treks of Mount Kilimanjaro’s Remote Northern Circuit and Shira Routes.

To continue this presence, the African programme includes new trekking routes in Uganda’s Mountains of the Moon – the Rwenzoris, Morocco’s High Atlas and the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.

According to Ms Badyari, the other factors central to World Expeditions operations in Africa are the quality of the guiding teams and the standard of equipment available.

As well as clients’ expectations that travel with World Expeditions adheres to Responsible Travel practices, which, according to Ms Badyari, is at the heart of every program on offer.

“We minimise our impact on the natural environment by practicing the ‘7 Principals of Leave No Trace’; our adventures support local economies by employing guides and staff from local communities,” Ms Badyari said.

“Our Animal Welfare Code of Conduct, Child Welfare Code of Conduct and Porter Welfare Policy ensure the well-being of animals and children we encounter, as well as the porters we employ on Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, Mount Kenya and in the Rwenzori Mountains.”
