Established in 1967, African Safari Club specializes in arranging Egypt, Kenya Beach and Safari vacations. African Safari Club also features Nile cruises aboard the M.S. Da Vinci and M.S. Fleurette. Nile cruises last eight days and they take the traveler from UK – Luxor to Edfu, Kom Ombo, Aswan, then back to Luxur – UK. Each day, cruisers will visit several monuments, towns, or other sights. For example, on day six, you can expect the following:
“In the morning, relax on board as you sail back to Luxor, passing through the Esna Lock en-route. In the afternoon you visit the famous Karnak Temple, a superb example of ancient Egyptian architecture depicting life around 1600 BC, and the well-preserved Luxor Temple, which is situated in the heart of town. Do not miss the Sound and Light show in the evening at the Karnak Temple.”
Because of the unique nature of African Safari Club cruises, employees of the ships must have special training and skills. For starters, if you live outside of Africa, you must apply for a work, work-seeker’s or study permit. These permits are issued outside of Africa, and function as valid visas in allowing their holders to proceed to an African port of entry. In other words, if you’re applying for one of these permits, you do not have to apply for a visa separately.
Next, if your work visa is approved, you may contact African Safari Club at 0844 875 6030. Phone hours are Monday to Friday 9 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. ASC telephone lines are closed on Sundays and Public Holidays. You may also forward your resume to: African Safari Club Ltd, Northside House, Tweedy Road, Bromley, Kent, BR1 3WA.
You should have a degree in a related field such as global studies, history, geography, foreign language, etc., plus several years experience working in exotic locations for small to mid-sized cruise ships. If you speak several languages, this will give you a huge advantage over other applicants. Keep in mind that Africa is a continent with a very high linguistic diversity, there are an estimated 1500-2000 African languages.
River cruise experience is especially useful as well as experience working on ships that offer elaborate tours. Besides specific skills and education, applicants must be polished, poised, friendly, outgoing, dedicated, and motivated. In addition to the experience and skills listed above, you should be prepared to discuss why you want to work for African Safari Club and what you have to offer the company. This means, it is very important to visit the official African Safari Club website to familiarize yourself with all that ASC has to offer.
