July 16, 2020 – Travelers yearning for adventure, yet not ready or able to travel due to COVID19 issues, can get a taste of what it would be like to be on an African Safari via a LIVE one-time virtual event, hosted by AAA and Africa Travel.  The event, Wednesday, July 22, at 9:30 a.m., CST, will feature a live “Safari Sundowner” experience, an African tradition of enjoying food and drinks at sunset, this one showcasing elephants from Jabulani Safari Lodge in South Africa. Registration is free and open to the public at AAA Travel Events

“We recognize the need for travelers to make meaningful connections with their dream destinations and created a series of events to provide a way for the exploration of exotic destinations from the comfort of home,” said Leslie Gamble, AAA Oklahoma public and government affairs manager.

“Attendees will be able to sit back with their morning coffee, watch elephants in South Africa make their way homeward after a day on the reserve and listen to elephant rangers sharing their personal experiences with the elephants, all under the glow of sun set,” said Gamble.

While many dream of an African Safari, most have not yet had the opportunity to experience one first hand.  During this virtual safari, Gamble says, “guests will be able to “meet” some of the elephants that call Jabulani home.”

The 45-minute live experience will be followed by time for participants to ask questions of hosts from both AAA and African Travel.


AAA’s Travel Virtual Event Series Featuring Elephants from Africa is scheduled for July 22 at 9:30 a.m., CST. Registration is free and open to the public at AAA Travel Events
