Wakanow ushers in a new dawn for East African Travel

East Africa ‘is a hot bed’ for some of the ultimate travel experiences in the world, such as the gorilla tracking in Uganda and Rwanda, the Wildebeest Migration which is deemed to be the world cup of wildlife – in Kenya and Tanzania, the vast greenery game parks, the diverse and rich culture in the region, the River Nile in Uganda, taking on the mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt Meru in Tanzania, Mt. Kenya, Mt. Rwenzori and Mt. Elgon in Uganda, apparently, you have not seen the sun set till you have watched it from the Serengeti and this is just to mention but a few…

We have read books and blogs imploring us to invest in experiences rather than material things because experiences bring more joy and they last longer. We have also caught on that perhaps travel isn’t just a White people thing; we are traveling our own lands, experiencing and appreciating our own.

Travel experience is such a hot thing right now. Everyone wants to travel, many believe it’s beyond their incomes but most do not know how and or where to start. Recognizing the opportunity and the need, Nigeria’s giant online travel outfit, Wakanow set up base in Nairobi Kenya to cater to this demand.

Wakanow, Nigeria’s premier online travel agency was founded in 2008 and it has since grown to be the only Travel Management Company to be licensed by both Master Card and Visa International in Sub-Saharan Africa. Their bouquet of services includes flights, hotels, visa assistance, travel packages and so much more, all on one platform with a presence in South Africa, Ghana, USA, United Kingdom, Senegal, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Dubai, Uganda and more collaborations to come.

Wakanow is looking to leverage their eight years of experience in the travel industry while making use of the existing travel innovations to make it easy for its customers to trips for you, handle those visa ordeals on your behalf and of course, their bestseller – the Pay Small Small plan which allows you to pay for your dream trip and or dream honeymoon up to a period of six months after a 25% down payment.

Wakanow aims to give its customers unrivaled travel hassle free experiences without necessarily breaking the bank. Wakanow translates to Let’s Go Now. It’s a new dawn in indeed.
