Go2Africa Named One of the World’s Best Safari Outfitters by Travel + Leisure Readers
Becomes Africa’s most recognised safari tour operator with latest honour
Go2Africa has earned another accolade after landing the eighth spot on Travel + Leisure’s 2020 World’s Best Awards list of Top Safari Outfitters. The New York-based publication is one the world’s leading travel brands, averaging 6.1 million print magazine readers, as well as 51 million page views on its website each month. Commissioned by T+L annually, hundreds of thousands of travellers cast their votes in the World’s Best Awards survey across a host of categories (hotels, cruise lines, etc.) and rank the nominees on a number of criteria.
“T+L readers want their dream trips to be, well, dreamy, so they have high standards when sharing their opinions on the world’s best safari outfitters. While these experts can’t control the weather or the wildlife, they can pair you with the most keen-eyed and knowledgeable guides to ensure that you have the optimal viewing experiences. They can choose the lodges that best suit your needs, tastes, and budget — and then take it up a notch by arranging for special surprise experiences and indulgences.” (source: Travel + Leisure)
“It is an incredible honor to be included in this prestigious list with some of the biggest names in our industry from across the globe.” says Maija de Rijk-Uys, Go2Africa’s Managing Director. “Being recognised by a publication like Travel + Leisure is an award in and of itself, but knowing it was based solely on our clients’ feedback makes it extra special. We are so passionate about our work and making our clients’ dream trips possible, so making the Top 10 just reaffirms what we do every day.”
