Audley Seminars: Safari for Beginners

This morning I grabbed a spare chair at the back of the Safari for Beginners seminar, and along with some Audley clients, listened intently to our Africa specialists go through the basics of safaris.

I sit in on these presentations from time-to-time to ensure that the content I am creating and maintaining for the Audley website is consistent with what we are actually offering clients. Secretly, I have to confess on this occasion I had an additional motive for being there.

You see, during my travelling days and long before I joined Audley, I had been lucky enough to safari in the Masai Mara Nature Reserve (Kenya), the Serengeti National Park (Tanzania), South Luangwa National Park (Zambia) and Etosha National Park (Namibia).

So, this hour long presentation - explaining where to go, when to travel and other useful information - was the perfect way for me to reacquaint myself with some of the animal kingdom’s most awe-inspiring sights.

Judging by the way the guests chatted away with our specialists afterwards I think it definitely fired some people’s interest.

In case you are interested I’ve included a link here to some of our forthcoming Travel Seminars. They’re free and include tea and biscuits!

    I’m sorry but these only occurred as one-off seminars in 2009 rather than on any regular on-going basis.

    However, do feel free to browse the Africa section of our website, order our brochure, or simply call one of our specialists on 01993 838 500 for any questions you may have.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Hi there

    We’re happy to share some tips with you:

    - Blog regularly and honestly – readership loyalty
    - Make sure your content is exciting and encourages interaction with your clients
    - Write from the 1st person or respond as a collective ie: “We are looking forward to”
    - Keep it personable – steer clear of corporate terminology / jargon
    - Blog about awards or achievements
    - Be creative – use video etc..
    - Use target keywords
    - Keep blogs short – 500 – 700 words long and start with a brief synopsis
    - Use internal links – helps with SEO and navigation
    - Promote your blog as much as possible ie Facebook / Twitter / website

    I hope you find these helpful – we’re certainly not experts!
