Trip Types:

We offer a variety of different trip types to suit every kind of traveler. Sometimes trips will fall between categories, and will be marked as such. Please feel to contact us if you have any questions regarding the trip types.

Also note that if there’s a trip you like but would love to see it done as a different type, please let us know – we can customize any sort of trip to your exact tastes.

Luxury: Our highest-end trips are marked as Luxury, and for good reason. On these trips we fly down an entire catering team to provide a constant stream of decadent meals and snacks, stay at luxurious hotels and resorts, and even charter private aircraft when needed in order to maximize our time and comfort. These trips typically have a more relaxed pace than the others as well.

Adventure: For when you want to pack it all in. Adventure trips are for smaller groups, often shorter, and the days (and nights!) are completely packed. We travel lightly, cover a ton of ground, and prioritize practical lodging over luxury. Our food is more simple, homestyle, and delicious, prepared ahead of time by our caterer.

Photography: Photography trips are very similar to the Adventure ones, except that they are primarily photography-focused. These trips are geared to photographers of all levels who want to learn and photograph exotic landscapes and wildlife. Non-photographers are always welcome, but should be aware that we spend a lot of time in a single location and tend to have lots of early mornings and late nights.
