LONDON, Feb. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tucan Travel have increased the number of departure dates on several of their itineraries as a result of the overwhelming demand for their new Africa group tours.
Starting at £999 plus the local payment, a dozen extra departure dates have been added from August onwards to eight of their most popular tours through Eastern Africa.
New for 2016, these tours use Tucan Travel's custom-built overland trucks to travel around the region and passengers stay in comfortable hotels, lodges, permanent camps and guesthouses. Passengers visit some of Africa's biggest highlights including the Masai Mara, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar Island. On these tours many meals and excursions are included and the semi-participatory atmosphere all contributes towards a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Africa Destination Manager Emma Campbell is quoted, "We have had a lot of interest in our new Africa tours since their launch and there has been an increasing demand from passengers wanting to see the highlights of East Africa in an affordable yet comfortable way. We hope these extra departure dates will give clients more choice and flexibility when booking their holiday."
These tours are also included in Tucan Travel's See the World Sale, which offers passengers 15% off group tours until Wednesday 2nd March 2016.
