CC Africa,Taj Hotels rope in Jonty Rhodes as ambassador

MUMBAI: The recent joint venture between Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces and Conservation Corporation Africa (CC Africa) has resulted in a further bonus. South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes has been roped in as CC Africa's ambassador to India and will be on a whirlwind tour of five Indian cities along with CC Africa CEO Steve Fitzgerald and will travel to Bangalore, Chennai, New Delhi and Ahmedabad after Mumbai.



CC Africa is Africa?s leading eco-safari operator with 36 exceptional lodges in the continent?s wilderness high spots. The Rhodes tour is aimed at raising awareness of CC Africa?s world-renowned lodges and camps, guided mobile expeditions, walking and specialist safaris and a comprehensive tour operating division offering exceptional safaris and tours from Nairobi to Cape Town. Rhodes will also tell attendees of the five-city functions about a range of exceptional safari offers tailored exclusively for the Indian market.



CC Africa offers Africa?s finest value safaris. The major packages on offer are the South African big five safaris and the East Africa safaris, which ranges from two-three nights stay at one of the finest lodges in Africa.



Rhodes while sharing his experiences on Africa's ultimate safaris said, "CC Africa is the most comprehensive safari operators with exceptional lodges and safaris in Africa's most breathtaking wilderness locations. The African safaris including Walking Safaris and Expeditions - Africa under Canvas mobile safaris is an exhilarating experience for discerning and adventurous travellers."

Speaking on the development, Fitzgerald said, "CC Africa?s ecotourism model recognises that economic development of the areas in which we operate is crucial to the maintenance of bio-diversity. We also recognise that much of Africa?s wildlife heritage and land is influenced or owned by local communities. Our model ? successfully implemented throughout our operations in Africa -- links international high net worth, low volume/low impact visitors to these wilderness areas and their resident communities. The resultant revenue tangibly demonstrates the benefits of ecotourism and conservation to the neighbouring residents."
