The island of Nosy Be and the small islands dotted around it make their debut in Premier’s 2018 South Africa brochure, and agents can now book a seven-night Madagascar Island Escape part-escorted tour from £1,499 per person.

It includes three nights in Nosy Be including snorkelling and travel onwards to Nosy Komba for an insight into a local tribe; two nights in Nosy Sakatia; and a further two nights in Nosy Be with a walking excursion to the Lokobe Reserve – home to Madagascar’s most famous resident, the lemur. For clients wishing to simply relax, the operator offers two hotels in Nosy be: the four-star Ravintsara Wellness Hotel and four-star-plus Home Madagascar The Residence.

The company's latest South Africa brochure, valid for travel until December 2018, features a selection of new tours where clients can experience both popular locations as well as unique, new product. Highlights include a seven-night Cape Town, Wine and Whales self-drive from £565, which ticks off the three main attractions in the Western Cape; Botswana Wildlife Discovery from £2,999 for six nights, where clients travel between luxury game from lodges in Chobe, Savuti and the Okavango Delta by light aircraft; and a Sossusvlei Desert Adventure from £499, offering clients the chance to tick off one of Namibia’s most iconic sights.

The operator has revamped its hotel offering, introducing a selection of new boutique properties and game reserves. Providing an authentic South African experience and more of a personal service, boutique hotels featured in the new brochure include the Three Boutique in central Cape Town, Wedgeview Country House in Stellenbosch for people looking for a country retreat in the winelands; and the quaint and historic Tsitsikamma Village Inn.

New game reserves added for 2018 include Bufflesdrift Game Lodge in Oudtshoorn, offering game drives, elephant experiences and meerkat safaris; and Ukumbe Safri lodge, one of the best value lodges in the Sabi Sands game reserve, considered by many to be the very best part of the Kruger region for spotting the Big Five. In addition, multi-country tours have been enhanced by adding an option combining South Africa and the Seychelles.

A number of new excursions have been added this year too, from foodie tours and walking and cycling adventures, to cultural experiences. To celebrate the brochure launch, agents are being offered the chance to win a place on a South African fam trip in December, wine tasting for their branch and South African drinks hampers.

Agents should look out for a golden ticket in their brochure launch pack to check whether they’re a winner. If they’re not successful, they can visit the company's trade website and enter online.

The competition closes on October 13 and agents can also earn up to £150 for every inclusive South Africa booking, depending on the booking value.
