African Travel, The Travel Corporation’s Africa specialist tour operator, is sending six of their top-selling travel advisors on a luxurious six-night trip to South Africa in 2019.

The President’s Top Producers Award will comprise African Travel’s top five producers with the highest revenue (must be over $100,000), plus the advisor with the most improved year-over-year growth. Winners will be selected based on client bookings between December 2018 and May 2019, for guests traveling between January 2019 and March 2020.

The selected advisors will fly to South Africa in business-class comfort, courtesy of South African Airways; and spend three nights at the award-winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Cape Town, one night at Tinga Lodge in the private Lion Sands Game Reserve, and two nights at Kapama Karula in the Kapama Private Game Reserve.

Throughout the trip, they will enjoy game drives, meals in top restaurants, sightseeing and cultural activities, all the while accompanied by Sherwin Banda, president of African Travel, Inc. and Marlene Sanau, vice president of sales for North America for South African Airways.

Winners will be announced in June 2019.
