Everyone remembers their first safari. Hearing the trumpeting of an elephant echo across the savanna, or the magical experience of glimpsing a mother leopard playing with her newborn cub. Gazing across a clear night sky full of stars as you regale the whole lodge with your wildlife sightings from the day. As a couple, these are the moments you’ll never forget.
Yearning to add some excitement to your daily life? Whether you want to inhale the fresh ocean air as you stand atop Hawaii’s impressive Diamond Head peak or feel the wind in your hair as you kayak along Lake Tanganyika in Africa, our travel experts will create an adventure like no other, just for you.
Perhaps you’ve always longed to travel to Antarctica, or you want to spend a sabbatical exploring Asia. Maybe your lifelong dream is to spend a month combining safari, trekking and culture in Africa, or to fly around the world stopping off at the pyramids, Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat. Whatever your plans, this is no ordinary holiday and we’re here to transform it from a dream into reality.
