Navigator Series® Edition III
Focus – what we focus on expands, and that applies to everything from politics to adventure travel. At Big Five, we focus on the space between – between what is expected and what is unknown; between where tourism is and where we want to travel. Each of us needs to explore the space in between all the noise in the world today to find what is most important to us while we also strive to meet the challenge to use travel to better the world, to change others’ lives and redefine preservation and conservation in ways philanthropy alone simply cannot. To begin your personal exploration of the space between, reserve your copy of Navigator Series® Edition III, arriving July, 2016. To order, use the Contact Big Five links on this page, call us 800 244 3483, or click Brochure Order Form.
We challenged our ever-on-the-road president, Ashish Sanghrajka, to come up with some of his favorite journeys and destinations. The result is the President’s Picks collection. We told him that he had to reach outside the box and consider places, experiences and adventures that we didn’t already have in our itineraries. So far, he had taken us way off the beaten trails to Haridwar, India to witness a twilight Ganga aarti ceremony; to a mobile tented camp experience in the Agafay Desert in southern Morocco; digging for emeralds in Colombia; and Mainland Ecuador.
Two new journeys explores Indochina and Botswana & South Africa. Incredible Indochina offers an in-depth sojourn that encompasses a cruise in the Mekong Delta between Cambodia and Vietnam. Botswana & South Africa feature a thrilling safari that includes a photographic safari with David Murray, Great Plains Wild Studio, and a unique project – Facial Recognition Research Project – using cutting edge technology for animal tracking and conservation. Visit President’s Picks to see where he takes us.
Family Focused Adventures
Your alternative to family tolerant travel
We developed adventures crafted with children at the center of each of our ground-breaking Precious Journeys™. These journeys allow our youngest travelers, in an age range of about 5 through 11, to explore the world and learn about subjects ranging from archaeology to zoology. They discover varied cultures and meet other children. They learn about sustainability in wildlife conservation, historic preservation and community development – all with a huge dose of fun!
In line with our commitment to kids and to sustainability, we have formed an alliance with the nonprofit One More Generation (OMG), founded by two remarkable children. In 2009, 8-year-old Carter Ries and his then 7-year-old sister Olivia Ries, learned about endangered animals when they ‘adopted’ a cheetah in South Africa. They started asking questions and that was the beginning of OMG.
We have also partnered with Family Travel Association, and support its mission of inspiring families to travel while advocating for travel as an essential part of every child’s education.” We couldn’t agree more.
Visit our Kids section to learn more about both Precious Journeys™ and One More Generation. To read articles and information, including The Wall Street Journal article featuring Precious Journeys, go over to our Media Center.
