One to One Consultation
2. What does the Travel Planning Consultation service entail?
Quite simply, we want to help you have the best experience possible.
The Talking Drums Travel Consultation provides one to one consultation services to help demystify travelling to Africa.
With a Travel Planning Consultation session, we will provide you with a 45-minute online video call, to understand your needs and interests, and based on this provide you with key insights to your country of choice, key tips for booking your trip and for navigating the once you arrive.
Please note: This is a consultation advisory service only and does not include an itinerary, which can be purchased separately at the Talking Drums Marketplace. You will be responsible for developing, arranging and booking your itinerary and flights.
3. What does the Travel Planning Itinerary service entail?
The Talking Drums Travel Planning Itinerary service provides you with direct help with planning and curating your own travel adventure in Africa.
Talking Drums will help you plan your trip by providing you with a bespoke itinerary, following the completion of a questionnaire.
The bespoke itinerary provides a day to day itinerary of activities, accommodation based on your budget and interest, as well as key pre-departure information. This service can be purchased at the Talking Drums Marketplace.
Please note: This is for the creation of a bespoke itinerary only, and does not include a consultation which can be purchased separately at the Talking Drums Marketplace. You will be responsible for booking and arranging your flights and itinerary.
4. Why should I book a Travel Planning Consultation or Bespoke Itinerary service?
With over 20 years experience travelling and living in Africa, and over 10 years as a solo traveller, I have gained invaluable knowledge navigating the Motherland. From trawling websites and social media, to reading various travel books and guides, and most importantly, from learning from local people and my own experiences, I can help you curate a rewarding and immersive adventure in Africa.
I have been fortunate to have since travelled all four corners of the Motherland, from North, South, East West, and Madagascar.
Everywhere has been different, with its own unique charm and experience. I hope to inspire you to do the same.
