What's New

As summer rolls around, we have new journeys to offer you. Consider our 16-day Chile & Bolivia. Explore the outstanding landscapes of the Bolivian Antiplano and Chile’s Atacama Desert.  Discover Patagonia on foot, horseback, by van or boat.

For the truly adventurous, our 22-day Indonesia in Depth takes you into the rainforest in search unique wildlife such as orangutans, proboscis monkeys, gibbons, clouded leopards and sun bears. Enter the world of the fabled Komodo Dragon, the largest lizard living on earth today.  Snorkel, scuba dive, kayak and swim in some of the most beautiful waters in the world.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience.

You’ll notice we have been busy crafting new experiences in Latin America with the 8-day Gems of Nicaraguathe 13-day Guatemala & Colombia, and the 10-day Northern Peru & Lake Titicaca

East Africa is in migration mode with the exhilarating annual migration when more than a million animals – primarily wildebeest and zebra, move from Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains north into Kenya’s Masai Mara.  This really is a life-changing event.  Call us about our 10-day Private Conservancies of Kenya & Tanzania.  Further south, you’ll find an entirely different safari experience with our 12-day Namibia – Desert & Beyond.
