OUR CORE COMPETENCIES
Immersive Local Experiences with a Personalization:
Immersive Local Experiences with Personalization: As the only travel company exclusively dedicated to Africa and creating local, immersive, enriching and personalized experiences to all 55 countries on the continent; we are uniquely positioned to tell each country's story. We curate immersive journeys that enrich and empower both our customers and local economies. For example, all our immersive culture-centric trips come with hands-on workshops such as; tie-dye and batik making, palm oil, shea butter making, black soap making and weaving to name a few. When we travel to a new destination, either we are trying to experience something different, escape from our mundane lifestyle, or we desire to fill a specific void. Imagine you arrived at your destination and there is a sign with your name on it and as it turns out it is your driver picking you up from the airport after a long journey. You arrive at your hotel or bed and breakfast and you are served with fresh juice or cold crisp or sparkling water. A few minutes later, after you have freshened up, viola it hit you that you are in a new country because everything seems different even the fresh breeze. The next day, you ate your delicious breakfast, a local hearty dish and your tour guide arrive to get you started with your tour. But first, you both grab a local refreshment to pick up from where you left off on your way back from the airport. You arrive at your first landmark, perhaps a UNESCO Heritage site and you see a long line or multiple lines of tourists - are you thinking what we are thinking? you whispered to your guide, when will we ever get in? But no, your tour guide passes right by the lines and went straight inside. It hit you again especially when your tour guide started talking. It's amazing, isn't it? when you ask your tour experts how he pulled that off, he answered, that's the Trailblazer Travelz difference...

When it comes to great travel experience in Africa, some people may feel intimidated and overwhelmed. With some bizarre stories about the continent, some people wonder, or can’t distinguish the truth from the bizarre, while others just settle for the “single story” narrative. Every new experience calls for an open mind and willingness to learn, which is why we are here. We pooled our resources just so you don’t have to and took all the guesswork out so you can have an unforgettable experience. We have traversed every country and decipher the puzzle for the bucket-list adventures, safaris, cuisines, and cultural experiences and the ultimate travel to Africa experience. We have given an unbiased view to the traveler by highlighting each country’s key accomplishments, resources, history, activities, and other important stories and events to help shift perspectives and perhaps help you fall in love all over again.
Hybrid Online Booking & Consulting:
Since airfares are among the most unpredictable part of traveling many travel planners and tour agencies exclude airfares from their packages leaving it to the customer to handle that on their own. However, at Trailblazer Travelz, we think differently - we are a customer-centric firm and hence, we strive to combine our efforts in utilizing artificial intelligence and our expert research consulting team to getting the most competitive fares for our customers. An action-driving approach to meeting customer expectations and optimize all possible opportunities. Our exclusive expert airfare travel consultants and travel planners do blaze the trail in delivering outstanding service and pricing with our 24 hours response service guarantee, no fees for credit card payments and 100% money protection. Our experts understand the ins and outs of travel, as we have a team of experienced consultants with a focus on product quality, great customer support and frequent flyer accrual as part of our detailed cost-benefit analysis. We are particularly punctilious in pursuing this commitment.
Customer Experience & Personalization:
Whether it is a flight delay, a customer is running late to catch their flight or being with our customers on the ground, we are with you every step of the way. We understand that traveling to an especially unfamiliar place can be stressful which is why we are committed to making the process seamless by being with our customers at every step of their trip. Our team of travel consultants and airfare experts will always be on standby to resolve and find alternate flights if needed. By eliminating any frictions and obstacles with options, we aim to assist and help our customers, so they never have to feel alone. We also understand that not one size fits all, which is why we encourage our customers to create their travel preference input form. Customers shouldn't be on long holds when they call, therefore, our phone lines are open for extended hours and we commit to responding to all inquiries within 24hrs. Travel can be very complex sometimes and goes beyond the typical purchase which makes the experience more fragmented for customers. Therefore, to respond to changing customer tastes and accelerating expectations we commit to mass customization through marketing, systemic and delivery methods that combine the flexibility and personalization of custom-made services.
