When you ask a South African what they want to do most after lockdown ends, travel is one of the most popular answers. While international travel is likely to take some time to get back on its feet, we have a wealth of incredible travel options right here – no need to wait for flights to resume and borders to open, or to risk payments to international hotels and airlines that may or may not be around in six months’ time.

South Africa’s luxury game lodges and hotels are among the best in the world, and while many are offering discounts in the current climate, Priority Escapes is unlocking even more value with exclusive deals that don’t compromise on the luxury factor.

“Our longstanding relationships with SA’s top hotels are opening doors to unbelievable offers,” says Director, Francois Swart. “Many of these are available only through Priority Escapes, and availability is extremely limited. Discounts can be anything up to 80% off standard rate cards – we even had one hotel offering 87% off their usual rate!” Priority Escapes has also ensured that its deals are as flexible as possible in light of these uncertain times. All booking terms include free postponement or cancellation up to one month in advance if coronavirus prevents travel.

Swart has built a solid reputation in the SA luxury travel industry, creating dream vacations in Africa and internationally. Looking further afield, bookings for the Maldives are now also available at some of the island paradise’s most sought-after resorts, with similar flexibility and the option of private chartered flights to make the journey an even safer bet.

Priority Escapes and its select accommodation partners are firmly committed to providing world class experiences to South African travellers. From private game drives to fine dining, protocols and policies are being adapted to make travel a reality – whether they crave adventure, new horizons, or the perfect sunrise.
