Enrichment Series

Enrichment Series – Travel feeds the soul, nurtures the spirit and invigorates the mind.  As travelers ourselves, we at Big Five Tours & Expeditions understand the powerful urge to explore and experience worlds outside our own.  From the earliest explorers to the first lunar landing, we humans seem called by our very nature to discover new horizons.   The Enrichment Series reaches beyond the premier, luxury journeys our guests have come to expect from us.  We have carefully considered every component, and constructed each itinerary to give you the opportunity to make your own personal discoveries.

We have sought to provide you with well-paced day-to-day activities, classic accommodations, distinctive cuisine, and that something extra that crosses the bridge from good to extraordinary.  For example, during out Cleopatra’s Palaces program, you savor an experience the pharaohs could not dreamed of – watching the sun rise over ancient Luxor as your hot air balloon floats peacefully above the majestic city.  Our Land of Kings program in India includes dining at the home of our Country Manager and his family for a taste of traditional Indian hospitality and a sampling of regional foods.

We believe passionately in the power of authentic human interconnections to enrich lives and to bring new understandings.
