BOULDER, CO – Deeper Africa, the award-winning tour operator and East African destination specialist announce the launch of its Tanzanian sister company, Nnko & Smith, alongside the debut of its newly redesigned website at deeperafrica.com. The new initiatives underscore the company’s commitment to providing a seamless experience from planning to execution of it’s memorable safaris. From travelers’ first touchpoint on Deeper Africa’s sophisticated new website to the hands-on and personal guidance on the ground, the latest developments position the company to welcome back travelers in the post-COVID era with a more streamlined operation from start to end.
Nnko & Smith is located in the town of Usa River, Arusha, Tanzania, and is a partnership between Deeper Africa’s Co-Founder, Wil Smith, and Tanzanian National and world-renowned wildlife guide Aminiel Nnko. Nnko & Smith will act as the preferred Destination Management Company (DMC) for Deeper Africa guests, as well as other top safari operators. The company was created not only to provide all of its travelers with same-time-zone customer care but also furthers Deeper Africa’s mission to increase African ownership in the continent’s tourism industry.
In addition to the launch of the highly anticipated Nnko & Smith, the operator has unveiled a new consumer-facing website showcasing a streamlined and modern design with user-friendly and interactive features. The new site meets the needs of the savvy traveler and offers future safari-goers a wealth of destination and travel information, stunning visuals, and sample itineraries to explore. Current and future clients can browse itineraries organized by country or theme, find comprehensive information on each destination, and learn about the company’s team of experts on the ground. The website also provides information on how travelers can work with Deeper Africa to support local communities – such as initiatives that help women thrive, improve education, and protect wildlife habitats – as well as ways travelers can get involved before, during, and after their safari.
New website features allow travelers to browse safaris based on country, price range, activities, and parks of interest.
“Deeper Africa and Nnko & Smith Safaris look forward to welcoming travelers back to Africa once again for incredible experiences that go far beyond the expected. We are thrilled that our new website and the launch of Nnko & Smith Safaris aligns with the recent re-opening of Tanzania, Kenya, and Rwanda to international visitors. These three destinations are among the few African countries to receive the Safe Travel Stamp from the World Tourism Council, and offer some of the most unique wildlife and cultural experiences on the continent,” notes Wil Smith, Co-Founder of Deeper Africa and Director of Nnko & Smith Safaris.
Despite the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on the tourism industry, Deeper Africa is optimistic that the coming year presents a rare opportunity for a pristine experience in the Serengeti, Maasai Mara, and gorilla lands with far fewer tourists. A few of Deeper Africa’s itineraries that highlight these destinations include Primates of Rwanda, Deeper Kenya, Gems of Tanzania, and Deeper Tanzania.
