Like a bowl of its popular Sarawak laksa soup, Borneo is a complex concoction that is rich with flavor and rapidly addictive. The third-largest island in the world behind Greenland and New Guinea, Borneo spans some 287,000 square miles—more than Texas and twice the size of Germany.

Blog Post

As a people, Samoans share a common language, a warm, generous spirit, a love of tattoos, and a 3,000-year-old cultural code. Fa’a Samoa, the Samoan Way, emphasizes loyalty to family, respect for one’s elders, and a commitment to serving the community, which is considered all-important.

The traveler who goes on safari in Kenya is a bit like a golfer hitting the links at St. Andrews. Beyond the sheer enjoyment of their experience, there is an ever-present awareness of the history and heritage surrounding them.

Kenya’s vast savannas were, after all, where the African wildlife adventure was veritably born—in fact, safari is a Swahili word for “journey,” adapted from the Arabic safar. Guests joining our ...

Redheads have a reputation for being deeply sensitive and extremely loyal. They sport the rarest hair color in the world—which, by the way, never turns gray, but rather straight to white. In fact, a research study published in 2011 shows that the genome of redheads differs in a number of ways from their non-auburn counterparts....

Field Report

Sunday & Monday, April 16 & 17, 2017 - Broome, Australia / Embark Coral Discoverer

Broome was hot and humid, but a most welcome respite from the unseasonably cold and wet winters most of us have been experiencing. As we settled into the beautiful Cable Beach Club Resort, we acclimatized, rested, and met our fellow travelers. Some of us walked down to the renowned Cable Beach, while others stayed in the resort and...
