African Safari and Adventure Travel Specialist

African Safari and Adventure Travel Specialist

I am a travel consultant specializing in African safaris, adventure travel and luxury independent travel.  I joined Nexion LLC in 2009, now a part of Travel Leaders, the #1 US travel agency, after completing a degree in travel careers following a 25-year career as a commercial banker.

Prior to 2009, I had spent over 4 months on safari and wanted to share my love of travel with others planning a dream safari, the vacation of a lifetime, a grand tour of Europe or an expedition cruise to the Galapagos or Antarctica. Initially, my clients were the network of professionals I’d worked with for so many years, those who trusted my integrity and work ethic (and had seen the photos covering the office walls).  I enjoy creating the perfect itinerary for couples, multi-generational families, photographers, and those seeking transformational and adventurous experiences.

I've retained the skills that made me a successful relationship banker:  honesty, accuracy, focus on the client’s needs, and maintaining long-term relationships with clients and suppliers, as well as keeping a sharp eye on the value proposition.

Since 2009, I’ve continued to travel extensively to South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania, as well as Italy, Turkey, Peru, French Polynesia, Galapagos, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia, and have completed specialist studies on Africa, India, Southern and Eastern Europe, and France.  I’ve has been a member of the Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa (APTA) for 8 years, and served on the board as treasurer of the Northern California Chapter for 4 years.  I’m also a member of the National Association of Career Travel Agents and the Travel Institute.

Spectacular trip

Reviewed By M McLorg - San Anselmo, California | Traveled to Kenya ~ Africa
My wife and I asked Ms. Randolph to arrange a safari for us in Kenya a couple of years ago now. She did so, and the safari exceeded our highest expectations. Everything connected with it, including travel, was handled with total precision. We cannot recommend Elaine highly enough.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Elaine Randolph responded:
Thank you for the compliments. It's a pleasure to arrange a transformative safari experience for my clients!

Wow!

Reviewed By Botswana too. - Alameda, California | Traveled to Zambia ~ Africa
Elaine's knowledge of African countries is excellent. I longed to see the animals and landscape of Africa for years. The realization of my dream came true as a result of her work. I was a solo traveler far away from home and I was very well taken of throughout the trip. I saw everything I wanted to, and the experience was awe inspiring. Thank you Elaine. I'm looking forward to returning to see and learn more.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Elaine Randolph responded:
It was a joy to work with you on your dream safari. I love sharing the wonder of travel with clients, and look forward to your next adventure.

Wonderful Cruise Experience

Reviewed By Okie Girl - Oklahoma City | Traveled to Baltic Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Elaine went above and beyond to make our Baltic cruise a lifetime experience for my niece and me. She thought of every detail and offered great advice for every option. It was a truly wonderful experience and she made the planning so easy that I'm having her plan a Danube River cruise for next spring.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Elaine Randolph responded:
I truly enjoy helping my clients achieve the perfect trip and I live that experience with them along the way. Flawless travel allows one to enjoy every life-enhancing moment and to return feeling happy and exhilarated, ready to plan another.
