Adventure tour operatorPlanet Wildlife has announced it is looking to acquire similar companies aroundthe world to fuel its expansion plans. The UK-based company is looking totake-over wildlife and adventure companies in Europe,Australia, Asia and the US that look after the mid-market to luxury sector. It isalso due to launch itineraries to china in the near future.
“Althoughwe’re a young company, we’ve already established a strategic network of salesand representation offices all over the world [UK, Australia, China and soonUSA] and offer a selection of tailored wildlife itineraries in India, Africa,South America and the polar regions. But we recognise that we wouldbenefit from amalgamation with established operations in these key markets whocan help us with sales distribution and rapid market penetration,” said NickLadd, director of PlanetWildlife UK.
“We have an impressive product and we knowthat there are strong niche markets in the USA, the UK, Australia, Asia and inselected key European counties such as Germany. It makes sense for us toseek out and incorporate respected operations which already have a strongpresence in these markets”.
