Commerce Lexington offering safari in South Africa Aug. 31-Sept. 9

Commerce Lexington Inc. is partnering with Central Holidays for a 10-day, seven-night trip to South Africa from Aug. 31-Sept. 9, 2017.

Set out from Johannesburg for safari in Pilanesberg National Park, one of Africa’s leading game sanctuaries, which boasts some of the greatest species diversity in Africa – including the iconic Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino). A 4×4 vehicle gives you nearly unlimited photo opportunities to snap pictures of zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, wild dog and vast antelope herds.

Then, you’ll explore scenic Cape Town. This once colonial settlement is one of the world’s most picturesque tourist destinations and most beautiful cities. Snug between hilly mountains and pristine white beaches, Cape Town is often called the cosmopolitan hub of Africa.

In recent years, Commerce Lexington has led groups to China, Cuba, Vietnam, Cambodia, Dubai, Croatia and Sicily.

“We are so excited to continue this group travel opportunity for our members and others,” Lynda Bebrowsky, Commerce Lexington’s executive vice president of membership and engagement, said. “We have found that many people enjoy traveling with those they know, through an organization they trust, to experience unique destinations at an affordable price. Trips that they may have thought out-of-reach before are now within their grasp, and they can do so in the comfort of a Central Kentucky group, building relationships or reconnecting with friends from previous trips.”

Departing from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport, the cost for this once-in-a-lifetime trip is $4,899 per person (double occupancy) for CLX members, $4,999 per person (double occupancy) for non-members and includes hotels, some meals, and airfare from Cincinnati, with an optional add-on visit to Victoria Falls for an additional $1,149 per person. Find out more about the trip itinerary at www.commercelexington.com/south-africa-2017.html.

If you’d like to learn more about this once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunity, a South Africa Trip Informational Meeting will be held 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 in Commerce Lexington Inc.’s first floor conference room (330 East Main Street).

A representative from Central Holidays will be on hand to discuss the itinerary and answer any questions that you may have. To attend this Informational Meeting, RSVP to Katie Hardwick at (859) 226-1608 or [email protected].
