A must for nature-lovers, Madagascar adventure travel is ripe with botanicals, birds, and land animals, including the island’s icon—lemurs. The island’s isolation and size (it’s the world’s fourth-largest island) has made for striking biodiversity: 90 percent of all forest flora is endemic and more than half of the 250-plus bird species are found nowhere else.
Uganda adventure travel is alluring and profound—after all, this is one of Africa’s most biologically diverse countries and home to the amazing mountain gorilla. Our experience here focuses on Uganda’s primates, but delves into the natural wonders of the country from the rainforests of the great Congo Basin to the wetlands of Lake Victoria. During our trekking safari tour, we hope to glimpse lions, leopards, elephants, Cape buffalos, and, of course, the 400-pound knuckle-walking mountain gorillas.
With a six-day cruise on the legendary Mekong River as its centerpiece, this new journey to Laos and Thailand is a revelation of ancient cultures, time-honored traditions, and exquisite natural wonderlands. Experience a traditional blessing ceremony and the pre-dawn alms-giving to hundreds of monks in beautiful Luang Prabang, a World Heritage Site city. Cruise the Mekong through lush scenery, past rice paddies and tiny villages, stopping to explore unusual geological formations sheltering prehistoric paintings and ancient Buddhist temples rarely visited by outsiders.
