Known for its collection of hotels, games reserves, eco lodges and cruises, Mantis officially launched its new enterprise, Mantis eXtreme, at Argentine cocktail bar Galante in London last night (23 October).
The online hub offers new ideas for seasoned travellers with a love of adventure, including storm chasing in the US, diving off the Galapagos, snow leopard encounters in Nepal and parabolic flights with Space Affairs in Europe.
Mantis eXtreme has already organised a number of corporate bookings, including sending Salts Healthcare staff to Lapland to see the Northern Lights and try out dog sledding.
Paul Gardiner, global marketing director for Mantis, said: "As a business we endeavor to listen to our clients, who have travelled the world for both business and pleasure and increasingly are looking for new experiences, hence leading us to establish Mantis eXtreme. From diving the deadly sardine bait ball off the coast of Southern Africa to midnight golf under the Northern Lights and fly-camping in the wilderness at Lugenda Wilderness Camp, these adventures have no boundaries."
The launch of the enterprise focusing on once-in-a-lifetime experiences follows the recent launch by adventurer Bear Grylls of a team building company, the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.
