Bamba Experience Team Up With Industry Legends To Launch Australian Hop On Hop Off Service

220096Bamba, the world’s fastest growing Hop-on Hop-off (HOHO) adventure experience provider, has teamed up with industry legends, Neil Geddes and Dan Roberts to launch a new HOHO service.

With international visits to Australia set to rise by 5.6% to 7 million during 2014/15[1], demand for HOHO is set to increase significantly and Bamba Experience Australia will set a new standard in giving independent travellers the best range of activities on Australia’s west coast.

Bamba’s unique HOHO adventures offer travellers the ultimate in flexibility. While most activities are guided, Bamba Experience Australia’s trips will be unguided, allowing travellers to take control of their itineraries. Bamba customers can modify their schedule at any point on their trip for no extra cost. With daily departures, travellers can also pick and choose which activities they want to take in as they aren’t restricted to rigid schedules.

Having pioneered the creation of HOHO with the launch of the original Oz Experience and Kiwi Experience, Geddes and Roberts have partnered with Bamba to raise the bar for independent travellers looking for a flexible approach to discovering the best activities and ‘off-the-beaten-track’ locations between Sydney and Cairns.

The unguided routes, which go on sale later this month, will see travellers head out to the Blue Mountains from Sydney where they will enjoy a self-guided bush walk. From there,the itinerary takes in a surf camp at Coffs Harbour before going onto Magnetic Island to take in the beautiful tropical beaches. Travellers will then have the chance to go onto Fraser Island and the Whitsundays before having an option to stay at a camp in the rain forest hosted by local Aboriginals.

With Bamba having built a reputation for providing independent travellers around the world with ground-breaking HOHO adventures they were the obvious choice for Geddes and Roberts to partner with.

Speaking about why he felt the need to create a new service in partnership with Bamba, Neil Geddes said, “I believe that there is a huge opportunity to get travellers involved in great alternative activities in Australia.  Rather than just travelling from beach to beach we want to also get them to go to alternative places such as the Blue Mountains and our remote rainforest bush camp.

“We are excited to work with Bamba to combine their great flexible pass system with the cool extra things that we have hunted out for travellers to get involved in.  What sets us apart is that we aren’t just a bus company – we are actively looking for great new things which will help travellers get the most out of their visit”, added Geddes.

By having experienced ‘locals’ on the ground Bamba will be able to offer the best combination of international distribution and customer support with the best possible local content.

Founded in 2005 to make independent travel easier and create the largest range of extraordinary experiences, Bamba has redefined the HOHO market and now offers travellers the chance to explore more than 40 countries. Bamba also provides self-guided adventure trips and short small group tours along with tailor made trips.

Laurent Steiner, Sales & Marketing Director at Bamba said, “Launching in Australia is a very significant and exciting milestone for Bamba. Our mission has always been to provide independent travellers with the best choice of experiences with the best customer service. So to launch in Australia, where HOHO all began, and to be able to provide a product which takes the whole experience to a new level is a very proud moment for Bamba.

“Neil and Dan are the godfathers of HOHO so it’s a great honour working with them to create a product which sets a new benchmark for the industry.”
