Pulse Africa is a Johannesburg-based, customised travel planning company in operation for more than 25 years. Tuesday, 30 July 2019

Pulse Africa is a Johannesburg-based, customised travel planning company in operation for more than 25 years. The company plans and books tailor-made trips to more than 18 African countries. Each quote created comes with a detailed, visual, personalised itinerary ensuring guests know exactly what to expect from the holiday. The company can arrange incentive or conference trips, while worldwide expertise is offered via Pulse Africa’s satellite operations in the UK, Germany, USA and Australia. 

Three key things make Pulse Africa different: longevity, objectivity and expertise. There are many travel operators without the years of experience Pulse Africa has. To have survived in a competitive market and been so successful is testament to its strength. Plenty of repeat and referred business is further evidence of this.

Objectivity is a key criterion in the travel business. Since Pulse Africa doesn’t own, nor is affiliated with any hotels, lodges or camps, it’s able to offer unbiased recommendations for each itinerary. The company can therefore work with whomever does the job best — whether it’s a boutique hotel or a fancy game lodge.

Pulse Africa has a passion for African travel and always insists its consultants have visited the places to which they send their clients.

Pulse Africa is dedicated to staying up to date on all current travel trends. There’s a growing desire to have ‘authentic experiences’ when people travel, so rather than just see the sights, a trip has to be ‘experiential’. As such, Pulse Africa can offer clients walks with San Bushmen in Botswana; visiting Soweto with locals in South Africa; ‘disconnecting’ at a remote lodge in Namibia; or even running with a Kenyan across the plains of the Maasai Mara. 

Another current travel trend is to be socially conscious and environmentally friendly. Pulse Africa is a member of Fair Trade Tourism, supports the Watamu Turtle Watch in Kenya and helps fight the war against rhino poaching through its work with the Rhino Art Project in South Africa. Pulse Africa ensures its clients have once-in-a-lifetime trips to Africa.
