For more than 125 years, the National Geographic Society has been the point of reference in the exploration of the world’s different cultures, wildlife and conservation. National Geographic Expeditions employs the most qualified specialists to ensure that their guests capture the essence of most amazing landscapes in the world. Additionally, they offer some of the best deals in the market.
National Geographic’s Boeing 757 comes with an attentive crew, a physician and an experienced chef. Once on land, guests get to stay at select hotels like the Oberoi Amarvilas in India or the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor in Cambodia. Friends of the guests who live in the host cities can join the group for private dinners, and local tours can be custom made according to the guest’s specifications.
For nature lovers, National Geographic Expeditions offers the once-in-a-lifetime experience “wildlife of the world by private jet”. Nine experts accompany the lucky travelers to see the gorillas in Rwanda, the dolphins in the Maldives, Malaysian monkeys, giant Pandas in China and a lot more.
But perhaps the most exotic routes for 2014 are those from Abercrombie and Kent, a company that specializes in luxury excursions to the most unexplored corners of the planet, like Cambodia, Myanmar and the Sahara desert. Abercrombie and Kent was founded more than 50 years ago to serve adventurous world travelers who wished to explore Mt. Kilimanjaro and the vast savannahs of the Serengeti, both in Tanzania. A trip to Africa, with luxury safari included, for a select group of 40 people, accompanied by the best experts and crew, can cost upwards of $80,000 per person.
If you think you’ve seen it all, and love traveling in luxury and utmost comfort, perhaps one of these tours could be your next vacation. The above-mentioned companies ascribe to the philosophy that “there will always be worlds to discover”. ■
