Elegant Journeys


Africa

Africa is the second largest of the Earth’s seven continents, making up 22% of the world’s total land area. Our human roots are tied inextricably to Africa, and it’s no wonder with today’s frenetic, fast-paced lifestyle that savvy travelers are drawn to Africa in a new and more meaningful way, seeking inspiration in remote and unspoiled places. Wild, free, and predominantly ruled by nature, Africa engages all of your senses as you encounter its array of wildlife. Not only will the game amaze you, but the people and culture of each region will charm and delight you.

A center for adventure, Africa is the heart of our planet with diverse habitats waiting to be explored. From the sun-soaked plains of the Serengeti to the breezy shorelines of the Cape, Africa is a romantic getaway, a peaceful place for self-exploration, and an ideal destination for multi-generational families.

East Africa

[Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda]
This region is the birthplace of the safari—a Swahili term that means journey—and with good reason. East Africa is home to the vast landscapes of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, teeming with wildlife, and majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, as well as verdant rainforests where rare mountain gorillas dwell. East Africa’s grassy plains host the annual Great Migration, one of nature’s most incredible spectacles. Whether you explore by land rover, horseback, or on foot, this is a bucket list destination.


African Islands

[Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar, and Zanzibar]
Effortlessly pair safari adventure with relaxation on the African Islands, where the azure-hued waters of the Indian Ocean offer a much-needed refresh. The biodiversity of Madagascar is almost indescribable with hundreds of endemic species of lemurs, birds, and reptiles, a fascinating mélange of cultures, and a slew of otherworldly landscapes. Meanwhile, the indulgent turquoise waters of Mauritius, Zanzibar, and the Seychelles offer the perfect beach venue for soaking in the sun and experiencing true relaxation.


Southern Africa

[Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, and Mozambique]
A region that will never cease to amaze us, the safaris and experiences that come from the countries of Southern Africa are nothing short of extraordinary. From the stunning sand dunes of the Namib Desert, serene in their isolation, to the powdery soft sands of Mozambique’s coastline and from the mighty Victoria Falls, which borders Zambia and Zimbabwe, to the lush waters of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the adventures of the southern part of the continent offer an irresistible allure.


Egypt

Egypt has captured the imagination of travelers for thousands of years. Over the millennia, waves of foreign conquerors passed through Egypt—Persians, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Arabs, and Turks—all leaving their footprint on this unique country. And although the pyramids have become an iconic symbol of Egypt itself, there is much more to explore—from the azure waters of the Red Sea to the lush oasis at Siwa and from the lavishly decorated tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Queens to one of the world’s finest libraries in Mediterranean-flavored Alexandria.


South Africa

A place that somehow combines everything we love about venturing to Africa into a single destination, South Africa is aptly referred to as a “world within one country.” From the bounty of its game parks to the scenic beauty of the famous Garden Route, and the delightful New World wines and vibrant culinary scene—the rugged natural beauty paired with world-class hospitality and sophisticated first-world infrastructure make for a winning combination.


Morocco

Exotic, colorful, historic…a trip to Morocco is an immersion into a brighter, vibrant world of Berbers, Kasbahs, and camels. Explore the city of Marrakech, weaving your way through the pulsing souk, and end the day at one of the Riad’s traditional hammams, or journey a stone’s throw away to the High Atlas Mountains for mouth-watering tagines and decadent views. Venture into the labyrinth of Fes’s medina or the dunes of the Sahara from your desert encampment. No matter the length of the trip, we suggest an extra bag for the unavoidable treasures you’ll pick up along the way.
