Spotlight member of the month – Bushbaby Travel
Abi Shaw set up Bushbaby Travel in 2004, with no travel industry experience, just a complete love of exploring the world and desire not to give up long haul adventures after having a baby!
“My sister was living in South Africa and I wanted to visit with a 4 month old but found it very difficult to find good advice about which hotels welcomed children. After doing my own research I wanted to share that information, and hence Bushbaby was born.”
Abi has now expanded the tour operation business beyond travelling with little ones to families with children of all ages and also couples whose children have ‘flown the nest’.
Their destinations are world-wide, but still focusing on multi-location adventures usually incorporating wildlife, culture, activity and beach. The Bushbaby aim is to inspire parents to consider something new and build shared memories with their children whilst giving them the confidence to take the plunge, as their itineraries are tried and tested and incorporate great attention to detail whether it be car seats / bedding / access to Wifi!
“As a tour operator rather than a Travel Agent, we don’t just sell holidays, we book directly with airlines and hotels so our prices are competitive. So please be in touch if you are looking to plan an adventure, whether it be Asia, Africa or Latin America or a beach break in the Indian Ocean!”
Any staff employed by a Chamber member can benefit from a 5% discount on their accommodation, when booked by 31st March!
