IT’S been a tremendous year for African niche wholesaler Bench Africa, having expanded their team in Australia, added more tours to their collection and conducted multiple agent famils spanning across the entire continent throughout the year.
The company is now on track to achieve a record year of sales for the financial year, thanks largely to these efforts and a surge in popularity for African travel.
Speaking with TD, Chris Le Roux NSW/ACT state manager said the firm is seeing strong demand, particularly from regional and rural based agents whose clients, including farmers, have had a successful season and are now cashing in on bucket list trips.
Bench will celebrate its 50th anniversary in Sep next year when the 2019 brochure is released onto the market.
