[TANZANIA] A new beginning for Legendary Expeditions
12 October 2020

Stop. Rethink. Restart

Our whole industry came to a grinding halt this year. While this has been a painful pause for most, for LEGENDARY EXPEDITIONS it has been a time to stop, rethink and restart.

Quite simply, Legendary Expeditions has been reimagined. It needed to happen and it is the right direction for their future.

The experience has been enhanced, but the core is the same. Going forward, you will find working with the team to be more streamlined, responsible and accountable. Partnerships with the travel trade continue to be highly valued. If anything, we want to grow and develop this partnership into the future.
 
What does the RESTART look like?
  1. A new brand narrative delivered through the long-awaited LEGENDARY EXPEDITIONS WEBSITE
  2. New ResRequest reservations system with ONLINE AVAILABILITY
  3. Legendary Serengeti Camps have been redone and renamed MIGRATIONAL CAMPS
  4. MILA TENTED CAMP adds an extra option in Mwiba Wildlife Reserve
We would like to congratulate Sean Clark, Director of Sales & Marketing, and the team at Legendary Expeditions for making the very best of the past seven months!

REMINDER: reOPENING DATES

This is not about the camps alone, but equally the journey between. With a safari and conservation company that has access to two million acres of wilderness, Legendary Expeditions guests explore remote and unspoilt regions with a private guide.

WE ARE CELEBRATING!

THE BUSHCAMP COMPANY
As they have been ranked internationally in the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice awards! This is not only a superb achievement for Andy Hogg and
the team, but also a fabulous recognition of safaris in Zambia.
CHAMILANDUis #2 in Africa and #9 in the world
BILIMUNGWE is #10 in Africa and #40 in the world

MARATABA CONSERVATION CAMPS & NKARHI HOMESTEAD by TANDA TULA
These newly launched camps have been chosen by none other than prestigious Forbes as two of five new camps to visit in South Africa now that our borders are open!

This week also marks what should have been the end of our Sustainable Africa MegaFam. We had 10 trips planned across 12 countries for 80 trade partners.
While I know COVID has been mildly less stressful than pulling this task together,
as a team we are very saddened that our 3rd and final MegaFam was cancelled.

But we would never let a good crisis get us down. Watch this space for exciting
new developments.
Warmest regards

South Africa

WHAT WE LOVE: Many of our team are South African and we are all extremely passionate about the country, its people, wildlife and scenic beauty – who would not be with an office in the Cape winelands! But most of all we are proud of what South Africa has achieved and the challenges we have overcome. It is a country that has diversity as its hallmark. From lush forests, vast savannahs, beautiful beaches, arid semi-desert, dramatic mountain ranges to its cosmopolitan cities, ‘Big Five’ wildlife reserves, winelands, gourmet restaurants and colourful shanty towns: South Africa has all any visitor could ask for. Strong on adventure, sport, nature and wildlife, it is also a pioneer and global leader in responsible tourism.

Sasaab

Sasaab is a Morrocan-style lodge located west of the Samburu National Reserve. Set on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River (Kenya’s third largest watercourse), the lodge boasts spellbinding views towards the jagged peak of Mount Kenya. Set in a wild landscape, amongst the culturally proud Samburu tribe, it is the only tourist initiative in the area. Sasaab offers something for every traveller; from lodge indulgences with treatments at SpaSaab and suites with private plunge pools, to safari adventures including game drives, walking safaris, camel rides and fly-camping.
