South African company Great Plains Conservation has a newly-minted agreement with Avant Garde Consulting, headed up by Pooja Wadhwa and Kunal Munshaw. They will be responsible for targeted sales, marketing and public relations activities in the Indian market. Dereck Joubert, CEO, Great Plains Conservation, says, “We have always enjoyed the shared values and ethos of our guests from India at our safari camps in Botswana and Kenya. There is just something special about sharing the joy and appreciation that we love about this business. On opening newer safari offerings with the new camps in Botswana and Kenya this year and the totally new safari experience in Zimbabwe – the time came for us to further grow our relationship with these valued guests and to bring on a more permanent sales presence in India. Avant Garde has a great reputation in the Indian market and we feel that we share common values and sensitivities when it comes to conservation ethics, high-end tourism experiences and being respectful and caring to everyone and everything we touch.”

It also leads us towards conscious luxury, tranquil travelling and giving back to where we came from, something that the evolved traveller is seeking, in today’s fast-paced world.”
