Kim Hutchings, Century Travel in Austin, TX, made her first booking with Big Five recently as a result of our Book Program, (see below).  A client she had given our Navigator Series™ Edition II brochure walked into her office later with our brochure in his hand, and said he was ready to go to Africa. She provided the client with a couple of proposals in addition to ours.  And although our program cost more, her client was so impressed with how original our proposed journey was that he booked his Tanzania safari with Big Five through Century Travel.

“I am not very comfortable booking Tanzania,” said Kim, “and Volker was so knowledgeable and patient with me. My clients are affluent travelers and I was anxious about putting them in the right hotels/camps. I was not familiar with the “off the beaten path” private conservancies and when I presented that option to my clients they were impressed and thrilled and booked without hesitation.

Big Five and Volker made me look like a rock star and now my new clients are referring their friends to me!” She added, I’m confident my clients will have the trip of a lifetime!”
