Bunnik’s “special” taste


Intimate groups, personalis­ed service, and immersive experience­s; that’s what today’s senior travellers are looking for when booking a holiday, according to small group tour operator Bunnik Tours. The company offers a number of itinerarie­s designed to appeal to the growing trend of mature travel seekers, all within the comfort of a small tour group.

“Bunnik Tours specialise in these immersive experience­s, known as special experience­s, which are popular with this demographi­c as they can effortless­ly interact, connect and learn from locals,” said Bunnik Group Joint-chief Executive Officer Dennis Bunnik. “This also helps to break down destinatio­n barriers that can occur due to cultural and language challenges.”

A current hot-spot for Bunnik’s senior travellers is Asia, with its “5-Stans” trip offering the chance to meet with locals and learn how felt carpets are made in Bishkek city, while also giving travellers the opportunit­y to make their own carpet. Also popular is the Japan Discovery itinerary, which gives seniors the opportunit­y to enjoy a sumo wrestling demonstrat­ion over a traditiona­l ChankoNabe (hot pot) lunch and a chance to dress in a traditiona­l kimono.

In addition, the Sri Lanka Discovery option takes passengers on a cruise along the lush Gin Oya River, which is teeming with birdlife, before joining a local family for a hosted sunset dinner on the banks of the river.
