If you’ve dreamt of traveling to Africa or South America, returning to your favorite lodges or discovering a new country, the time is now! See the specific offers below for a small taste of what’s available.
Family Travel: Kenya and the Galapagos
For travelers who have yet to book their family holiday travel, camps and lodges in Kenya still have availability over the holiday season. Intergenerational family safaris are a great way to create lasting family memories, capitalize on school breaks and give loved ones a meaningful gift of travel this holiday season.
The Galapagos Islands offer another family travel option this fall, with stunning scenery, incredible wildlife and educational opportunities and the ease of traveling on an expedition cruise ship.
SOUTHERN AFRICA: WILDERNESS SAFARIS
One of the best package deals in southern Africa is the annual Wilderness Safaris Multi-Country Special, with special pricing that allows travelers the opportunity to piece together multiple countries into a comprehensive tour of southern Africa. Whether visiting Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and/or South Africa, guests can mix and match camps and destinations into an easy and cost-efficient trip. In fact, a sample pricing at some of our favorite Botswana camps for mid-November to mid-December features up to 50% off normal prices! For safari travelers concerned about quality of game drives, the amount of game seen at this time of year in Botswana remains similar to peak season wildlife viewing.
SOUTHERN AND EAST AFRICA: SINGITA
Singita is the essence of luxury in East Africa and southern Africa, with their safari camps appearing in prestigious lists of top properties, such as Travel+Leisure magazine’s 2015 World’s Best Awards, where Singita secured the top two spots in Africa. In 2016, the luxury safari company is offering incredible packages at their properties in Tanzania, South Africa and Botswana. For example, guests visiting Singita Serengeti properties between February 1 and May 31, 2016 or November 1 and December 19, 2016 can take advantage of a “Stay 3, Pay 2” pricing structure. Additional Singita packages are available in Botswana and South Africa and differ depending on season and date availability.
SOUTHERN AFRICA: KWANDO SAFARIS
Showcasing five safari camps in landscapes varying from desert to delta, the Kwando 5 Rivers Special allows guests to combine multiple camps under a special pricing structure where each camp shares a nightly rate. This special runs November 15, 2015 through March 31, 2016 and features properties in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
EAST AFRICA: BUSH & BEYOND
In Kenya, our partner Bush&Beyond is offering special fall incentive rates for new bookings for September 1 – October 31 and December 1-19, 2015 for Lewa Wilderness Camp, Lewa House, Ol Malo and Ekorian’s Mugie Camp. Read about Marsha and Marguerite’s Spring 2015 trip to a few of these properties!
GALAPAGOS: EXPEDITION CRUISING ON THE ECLIPSE
Availability on expedition cruise ships in the Galapagos is hard to come by, but our partners have notified us of availability and a 10% cruise rate reduction for fall sailings through the second week in December, subject to availability. These sailings are great pre-holiday options for anyone already committed to holiday plans.
PERU: MACHU PICCHU & CUSCO
South America offers a wealth of destinations for both first time travelers and return guests alike. For travelers looking to check the iconic Machu Picchu off their wish lists before 2015 closes, a current sample itinerary for Cusco and Machu Picchu has estimated costs of $1650 per person.
