TORONTO, ON, May 05, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- To provide its Africa-bound travellers with peace of mind and greater flexibility, Gap Adventures (www.gapadventures.com) is now guaranteeing departures for its entire program of Africa Overland trips (www.gapadventures.com/products/overland-africa) for the remainder of 2010.
The introduction of 100% guaranteed departures allows travellers to find and book flights at the best possible rates rather than waiting for their trip to be guaranteed before securing the air component. The move reflects Gap Adventures' ongoing commitment to providing cutting-edge service and life-changing experiences to its travellers.
"The reassurance that all of our Africa Overland departures are guaranteed for the rest of the year is a major milestone for our Africa Overland program, where we've seen demand grow by over 130% since last year," said Gap Adventures founder Bruce Poon Tip. "This is just another example of our determination to lead with service for our loyal travellers and travel industry partners."
Gap Adventures' Africa-bound travellers have long enjoyed a wide array of benefits including a collection of more than 40 unforgettable, authentic Africa Overland tours from which to choose, amazing value as they set out to encounter Africa's Big 5 and immerse themselves in the continent's rich culture, as well as local customer service support at the tour operator's offices in Nairobi, Kenya, and Cape Town, South Africa.
As an added bonus, Gap Adventures Africa Overland itineraries include local payments and costs, including most park entry fees. The only Africa itinerary excluded from the new guarantee policy is the Kenya and Tanzania Overland trip, which is a standalone journey and not part of the greater Overland program.
Some of the most popular Africa Overland trips include the 21-day Dunes, Deltas and Falls itinerary (http://www.gapadventures.com/trips/dunes-deltas-and-falls/DZLD/2010), which covers all of the wildlife, cultural and scenic highlights of South Western Africa from the incredible Kalahari Desert to Zimbabwe's towering Victoria Falls. Then there's the awe-inspiring 40-day Nairobi to Cape Town Adventure (http://www.gapadventures.com/trips/nairobi-to-cape-town-adventure/DKNC), an unforgettable journey that encompasses nearly half of the continent. The trip sets out in Kenya before finishing in South Africa and stopping at remarkable destinations such as the Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, Namib Desert and cosmopolitan Cape Town.
