The joys of June

June is the perfect time to escape to many of our favorite destinations. The Mediterranean is warm with balmy nights but still no sign of the crowds. It is also a great month for a road trip round California or to head to the Galapagos to witness the mating dance of the blue footed boobies. And for wildlife lovers; in Botswana, Zambia and northern Tanzania the game viewing is at it's best. To start planning your luxury customized vacation, please contact our travel specialists.
