Slow is the go this year, predicts African safari specialists Jenman Safaris. Swapping frenzied itineraries and tourist traps for more mindful adventures is the company’s top travel trend for 2020. Count us in!
“We’re seeing a lot more travellers opting for slow travel, where they can immerse themselves in the destination to both understand it better and fully enjoy their chosen activities without being rushed,” notes Jenman Safaris CEO Katja Quasdorf.
“The mindfulness comes from picking stays and experiences that are environmentally sustainable and which support local communities and the ongoing conservation efforts.”
For your own easy-does-it adventure, look for ‘motion-based travel’ (connecting with a destination via walks, hikes, boating and cycling) and extended stays at one property so you can really relax into what Katja describes as a ‘home-tel’ experience.
We fancy wildlife spotting on Jenman’s five-day Greater Kruger Walking Trek or doing our best Meryl Streep/Robert Redford in luxury tented accommodation on the African plains.
Loving that slow lane already.
