LONDON, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Travellers can now end the year where it all began, and get an amazing 25% off end-of-year Africa tours. Starting from Cape Town and heading north through Namibia and Botswana to Victoria Falls, there are various adventures that also extend north to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda to see the amazing mountain gorillas.
Tucan Travel's global general manager, Rebecca Whiffin, herself has just returned to snowy London after spending three weeks on a tour in Africa from Cape Town to Victoria Falls.
"I had an absolute ball in Africa. It was 35 degrees when I left Zambia yesterday and snowing when I arrived in London. Guess where I would rather be? There really couldn't be a better time to explore this fascinating continent, and with our 25% discount, what's stopping you?" Whiffin said.
Africa overland tours utilize specially converted overland trucks and Tucan Travel own and operate all of their expedition vehicles and are confident that they are the best on the road in Africa today. The powerful, modern fleet of Mercedes Benz trucks has been specifically designed and professionally engineered to take on mountains, deserts and even rivers in their stride. Constructed to tough European safety standards, the vehicles are custom-built by specialist vehicle builders. The bodies are also custom-designed to provide maximum safety, comfort and accessibility.
This all means that clients spend less time in the vehicle and have more time to explore their destination. Fewer driving hours and modern, regularly maintained engines also result in fewer carbon emissions, which is better for the environment.
