Our Top 10 Trips of 2022

It's our favorite time of the year! We're thrilled to announce our Top 10 Trips of 2022. There are so many fun ideas in this collection to jumpstart your inspiration for your 2022 travels.

As the whole world finds its new normal, the travel industry is no different. Over the past two years we've perfected the imperfect art of planning trips in the age of covid and the results speak for themselves. Last year we had clients exploring everywhere from the banks of the Nile River in Egypt to the Okavango Delta of Botswana to the river crossings of Tanzania and beyond.

As clients returned from their adventures, there was no shortage of smiles and people who came back shouting from the rooftops how AWESOME it is out there right now. The pandemic can feel all-consuming and travel is exactly the escape we all need. 

Crowds are still a fraction of what they normally are, and all the camps and guides have finetuned their offerings for optimal safety. With the world likely to continue existing for several years in some form or another of this new reality, it's time to get back out there and dive headlong into exploring the world. The possibilities are endless!

Dust off your passport and pull out your suitcase...
