African Travel Inc. (ATI) has launched its new 2024 brochure, including details of four new journeys it has added to its schedule of trips.
The company also announced it will be offering 90 Make Travel Matter Experiences across all of its itineraries, which benefit wildlife conservation or local communities, and are meant to directly advance the sustainability development goals set by the United Nations.
“We are thrilled to unveil our new 2024 brochure and we are excited to introduce the enchanting realm of Morocco as our newest destination, with its ancient traditions and stunning landscapes,” said Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel Inc.
“We will also support our Moroccan Make Travel Matter Experiences to help protect those traditions and cultural interactions in a meaningful way for our guests, local partners and the local communities we visit.”
On the new 10-day Discover Morocco and 12-day Flavors of Morocco journeys, travellers will visit the Marjana Argan Co-operative in the southwest region of the country, which is owned by more than 80 local women.
Guests will learn more about the life of Berber women, who use only traditional methods of making argan oil.
They will also have the opportunity to make a positive economic impact by purchasing the women’s products.
In Marrakesh, both itineraries offer an interactive cooking class conducted by local chefs.
Guests will follow the chef’s demonstration and prepare their own savoury meal using traditional cooking tools with aromatic herbs and spices.
ATI’s new 10-day Delta, Rivers and Falls safari will take travellers through the heart of Botswana and Zambia.
They will get an aerial view of the Okavango Delta as they arrive at sustainable luxury lodge, Atzaro Okavango, via helicopter.
The camp’s guides take guests to see leopards, cheetahs, lions, elephants, hippos, gazelles and buffalo.
In Livingstone, they will have an opportunity to tour the Maunga clinic, visit a school and participate in a lunch program serving local kids.
The experience includes a donation to support the local community.
