Travelled outside of Europe for the 1st time. Hello Tanzania!
We had a fantastic family trip to both Zanzibar and the Northern safari parks of Tanzania. However, eleven years later I would realize that we hadn’t seen anything more than the beach and animals. If only I knew then what I know now!
BOUGHT A 125CC MOTORCYCLE!
EXPEDITION OF AFRICA INSIDE OUT BEGINS!
Two new Charlie’s Travels offices are born: Uganda and South Africa!
Africa is large and diverse, for us to keep discovering new, unique and adventurous routes for you – we need to be on the ground. With this, the ambition to create an amazing work lifestyle community with all Angels across the continent was born. Now we have a “home” and welcomed greeting wherever we go! In 2020, our team was strengthened by two new offices in South Africa and Uganda as well as Angels living in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Madagascar.
Corporate Social Responsibility
A big part of having a successful company is to have a strong social responsibility program. We believe that this is the only way to do business honestly. Being off the beaten track, one of our main focus is to have a positive economic impact with local partners and communities. As a company, we never want to lose sight of the cultural impact tourism has because ultimately, tourism is a cultural exchange that works both ways. Charlie’s Travels prides itself continually trying to do more business in a responsible, sustainable way. We offset all CO2 emissions from flights and transportation by supporting local carbon compensation projects.
Expanding into the Western European market
We want to share our off-the-beaten-track Africa with more than just the Netherlands and Belgium! In the coming years, we hope to introduce more Western European countries to our way of travelling! The more travellers we have, the more we get to keep discovering new routes and experiences – a win-win for all!
