IN A bid to draw Asian travellers back to Africa after the Ebola crisis, luxury travel operator A2A Safaris is offering a one-for-one deal at Asilia Lodges during the Chinese New Year period in 2016.
The offer is valid from February 1 to March 15, 2016, with a minimum booking of six nights in Asilia Lodges – consecutive nights are not required, as long as there are six nights in the itinerary – and only applicable to travellers from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and the Philippines.
All Asilia's properties throughout Kenya and Tanzania are available for the offer, although national park fees still apply.
Asilia is slated to open The Highlands, Ngorongoro, in Tanzania come March 2016. Located on the slopes of the Olmoti Volcano, the new lodge will offer views of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater floor. Guests will be housed in pod-shaped “tents” with hot running water and flush toilets.
Activities at the lodge include the Ngorongoro crater descent, a Maasai cultural experience, Empakaai Crater hike and Olmoti nature walks.
