Is it time for you to go back to school? Why not try Safari School?

Bench International launches Safari School

African specialist Bench International has marked its 46th year of operation with the introduction of Safari School - a unique and exclusive training tool for travel consultants.


General manager Martin Edwards said, " travel consultants are the most important part of our business and we believe they must have a dedicated training platform to best serve their agency.


"Safari School is now accessible through the Agents Portal at and provides a sophisticated, easy-to-follow platform to help agents contribute to their agency’s success with a comprehensive knowledge of the African product."


Safari School is made up of five modules, represented by one of Africa’s Big Five animals - buffalo, elephant, lion, rhinoceros and leopard - with short videos covering everything from the various destinations, getting there, the highlights, wildlife, seasons for travel and other general information.


Put together over many months by Martin Edwards and southern states sales manager, Cameron Neill, there are multiple-choice questions at the end of each section.  After traversing each level, agents will be able to download further information from all sectors to produce an easy-to-read information pack.


Having studied all five modules agents will not only have a 90-page information Bible on Africa but will receive a certificate indicating that they have qualified as an African Expert.


Martin Edwards believes that Safari School provides the ultimate selling information kit for African destinations ranging through Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe the five most popular wildlife destinations on the continent.
