President’s Pick Namibia Desert Quest 11 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Safari Tours, Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

"I fell in love with Namibia long before I even understood why. What was the connection? Was it the dramatic dunes, the remoteness and remarkable desert animals? Was it the community-based conservancies? Was it that they were the first country in the world to have a sustainability amendment in their constitution? Today, I can tell you that it was and remains all of that. But you need to move beyond the dunes of Sossusvlei."


President’s Pick Morocco Mazes & Mysteries 12 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Romantic Getaways, Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

"Every year I visit Morocco and I am amazed by two things: how much the country has to offer, and how little of it is really being done right. Morocco has long been known for its riads, the Atlas Mountains, the Sahara desert and the excruciatingly long drives. This is reflected in nearly every itinerary across the board. This journey is designed to focus more on the adventure side plus the luxury aspect of Morocco and minimize some of those long desert drives. It takes you inside a Berber home, camping on the great sand dunes and into the dramatic gorges of Todra."


President’s Pick An Adventurer’s Chile 13 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

"Chile has one of the richest histories in Latin America. Yet, too often, I see the same few locations come up repeatedly. There is so much more to Chile than just ice and desert, right? I am happy to answer with a resounding yes. Imagine Chile before the bus tours, the hotels and the overcrowded spots. Now, imagine traveling to places where hidden luxury hotels sport names that you need to learn to pronounce with adventures you didn’t know were there. This is the Chile I fell in love with and want to share with you."


President’s Pick Colorful Japan 13 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

My first visit to Japan was almost two decades ago. What amazed me the most was how much potential was here once we got away from standard bus tour activities. This journey represents that potential beginning to be realized. We are challenging the norms that take even some local guides out of their comfort zones to find the Japan most people never see.


President’s Pick A Grand Safari in Africa 24 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Safari Tours, Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

"A few years ago, the question used to be which part of Africa do you choose, East or Southern? Combining the two not was an option. Thanks to new flight routes and the exploration of new adventures, the question now is where do you want to start, Nairobi or Cape Town. It’s the perfect safari for someone that has the time and wants to see as much as possible. Imagine, seeing Cape Town from a WWII motorcycle sidecar, engaging with the San people of Botswana’s Makgadikgadi before exploring the Okavango Delta by mokoro. Take in the awesome power of Victoria Falls, connect with an orphaned elephant at the Sheldrick Orphanage in Nairobi, and cap of the greatest safari with the greatest wildebeest migration in the Serengeti!"

President’s Pick: Adventure Guatemala & Panama 19 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Sustainable Travel, Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

“The prefix “UN” connotes the opposite or the undoing of something. That is exactly what this journey is about. When I look at how travel in Central America is offered; frankly, I get bored! The same hotels, the same locations, the same activities consistently show up. What is missing is a sense of imagination and creativity. You should expect more – to see more, to feel more, to do more than the ordinary. This journey allows you to engage with the indigenous tribes of Panama, explore rural Guatemala by glamping in a remote luxury Airstream trailer, and discover the region’s rich ecosystems during hikes and rafting adventures.
