From staying in perspex domes in East Africa and underwater rooms in Mozambique to sleeping atop a ‘bird’s nest’ in Kenya, travel company Ker & Downey Africa designs tailor-made luxury adventure expeditions with a twist. No stranger to the experiential travel boom, the company is already seeing five overwhelming trends among its adventurous wanderers emerge for 2020, and they are a far cry from the standard safaris of yesterday…

Bite-Size Travel

‘Bite-size’ travel is your solution to making every second count. Evolving with the modern-day traveller, Ker & Downey Africa now offers curated travel experiences that showcase the best of Africa, in a shorter time frame. Expect condensed travel times by private jet, faster travel routes and cutting to the chase of Africa’s must-see, must-do experiences. Check out their bite-size 18 Day Botswana, Rwanda + Mozambique LuxVenture.

Art & Travel

World class galleries, museums and the best of local, African art is at your fingertips when you travel with Ker & Downey Africa in 2020. From exclusive boutique hotels housing private art collections to private diamond collections, explore Ker & Downey Africa’s 11 Day Diving for Diamonds LuxVenture.

‘B-leisure’ Travel

According to Forbes Magazine, 87% of business travellers say that they are likely to mix business and leisure on the same trip, while 56% of travellers include the family on a business trip. In Africa, why not combine a business trip in Johannesburg with a 2-3 day safari in the Greater Kruger?

Experiential Accommodation

Imaginative hotels in scenic locations are setting the tone for travel in 2020. The reconceptualisation of hotels as experiences in themselves is a driving force behind where luxury travellers are heading next, and contrary to what you might think, staying in perspex domes in East Africa or underwater rooms in Mozambique is no longer just a dream. Check out some of Africa’s unique accommodation in the Tanzania + Zanzibar Bush and Beach Experience.

Wellness Travel

Returning rejuvenated is the aim of the game in 2020. Travellers who prefer to better the wellbeing of their body, mind and spirit during their travels need look no further than Africa and its modern safaris that will reconnect you with nature. Ker & Downey Africa’s 10 Day South Africa Getaway is enough adventure to get the adrenaline pumping, but enough R&R to leave you feeling refreshed.
