Southern Africa Safari

From December 27, 2016 to January 4, 2017, I along with my children aged 14 and 21, traveled to South Africa to join National Geographic's Southern Africa Safari by private air. 

Carol Guy, our tour leader and Bill Branch, our accompanying biologist, were organized, knowledgeable and had warm relationships with people at all the reserves.  We were greeted and treated like family.  We stayed in the Sabal Camp at MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa in large comfortable rooms facing the Sand River, where even before our first game drive we sat on our deck and watched rhinos, impalas and baboons stroll along the banks. 

Guided by outstanding rangers, Morne, Michael and Theo, we saw the big five within 24 hours and were treated with long visits with seriously endangered cape hunting dogs and the lions of the Eyrefield pride.  It is a magical place. 

We next visited Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana, staying in modern rooms and eating dinners under the stars.  Friendly and knowledgeable rangers, including Harrison and Kenosi, escorted us by jeep, bike and on foot through the bush.  We saw adult and young nursing giraffes, zebra, hyena, cheetah, leopard, rhino, elephants, kudu, waterbuck, lechwe and innumerable species of bird, including an African fish eagle eating an antelope leg. 

Next was Camp Xakanaka in the Moremi Game Reserve where we stayed in luxurious tents on the Khwai River with hippos, cape buffalo and herds of elephant surrounding us.   We flew from reserve to reserve on a DC3 operated by Skypass Air.  Captain Bill Good and the cabin attendant of all cabin attendants, Werner, took great care of us.  It was the trip of a lifetime and I recommend it without reservation!

My sister-in-law, Amber, and I had the pleasure of cruising the waterways of the Netherlands and Belgium during tulip season last April on AmaWaterway's AmaSerena.  We began our adventure in Amsterdam where we visited the Keukenhof Gardens, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Red Light District.

Highlights of the river cruise were a walking tour or Hoorn, visiting the Arnhem Airborn Museum and War Cemetery, and experiencing Floralia - the annual spring flower show at the historic Kasteel van Groot-Bijgaarden in Brussels.  Our most challenging day was our walking tours of both Ghent and Bruges. We truly enjoyed the day; but our feet paid for it that night.

We enjoyed getting to know all of the passengers on the AmaSerena while partaking of delicious cuisine and local wines.  We liked the relaxed atmosphere on the river cruise and are looking forward to our next AmaWaterways cruise on the Douro in Portugal aboard the AmaVida. Chynell continues to work on my travel wishes throughout the year.

Set off on your Rhône River cruise through one of the first wine-producing regions on earth, stopping to explore villages along its banks; here ancient roots meet contemporary charm. See a 14th-century palace designed for papal splendor, Roman ruins, a medieval abbey or a game of pétanque (similar to bocce).

En route, taste an aged Beaujolais, a Côtes du Rhône direct from the source, world-renowned chocolates, and superb cheeses.

Best of Alaska 2017
Cruise & Tour 
Roundtrip from Tallahassee
Land hosted by Phil & Carol Swartz
Cruise hosted by Brad Baldwin
12 Nights Departing July 4, 2017

Experience the real Alaska up close - this package has it all, the historic interior lands followed by a Inside Passage cruise.   
Beginning with air from Tallahassee to Fairbanks, Alaska where you will you explore the Tanana and Chena Rivers aboard the Riverboat Discovery, see the Alaska Pipeline and enjoy an Alaskan Salmon Bake.

Embark on a land tour to include Denali National Park to experience Alaska's backcountry where  large animals roam and hopefully get a view of Mount McKinley (renamed Denali). Continue by rail to the historic mining town of Talkeetna and by motorcoach to Anchorage.

Travel through the remote southern Kenai Peninsula to the small scenic fishing town of Seward. Here you can explore this town and visit the Alaska SeaLife Center, a non-profit research institution and public aquarium, where you will have close encounters with puffins, octopus, harbor seals, sea lions, and other marine life. Or, take an optional tour of the Kenai Fjords National Park where the ice age lingers. Nearly 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield. Wildlife and lush forests thrive around this vast expanse of ice. The native Alutiiq people have relied on these resources to nurture a life entwined with the sea.  

Time to leave the land tour and board Holland America Line's Noordam for a 7-night cruise through Glacier Bay and calling on the quaint Alaskan towns of Haines, Juneau (the state capital) and Ketchikan. Then onward via the Inland Passage to Vancouver, British Columbia where you will transfer to the airport for your flight home.

From the craggy peaks of the Blue Mountains to the lush tropics of Queensland and the coral treasure land of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia has something unusual and something special to offer visitors - even those traveling by motorcoach.

The most frequently visited places in Australia's vast "red
center" have been tamed and put on a tour, but the Outback hasn't lost its fr on tier allure. Watching the sunset at Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) has become something of a circus with the hordes of motorcoaches, camper vans and motorcycles that crowd the parking lot, but watching the scalloped monolith go from reddish-brown to a haunting burnt-orange against the desert sky is still a magical-some say spiritual-experience.

The same can be said for much of the rest of this country that's also a continent. Sydney may have joined the ranks of the world's top cities, but its architecture, stunning harbor, and electric, manic personality keep it singular: you won't mistake it for anywhere else.   

Hotel del Coronado, San Diego's legendary oceanfront beach resort, has been captivating imaginations for over 128 years.

Welcome to the iconic Hotel del Coronado where a legendary past blends with timeless ch arm and casual elegance. Majestically situated on America's most beloved beach , The
Del's contemporary luxury and classic Southern California style offers something magical for everyone. From a romantic seaside escape to an inspirational gathering place for groups and destination weddings,

The Del creates memorable moments that capture the hearts of every generation.  

Windstar Cruises  and the venerable James Beard Foundation  are building an unprecedented travel-culinary partnership in 2017. The just-announced, exclusive partnership will result in scrumptious bites at sea for cruise guests and raise awareness of the epicurean delights to be discovered in ports around the world where the leading small ship line sails.

Windstar Cruises is the market leader in small ship cruising, operating three luxury sailing yachts -  Wind Surf, Wind Spirit and Wind Star  - and 3 all-suite power yachts,  Star Pride, Star Breeze  and  Star Legend. With fewer than 300 guests onboard, Windstar offers a private yacht-style cruise experience. Service is personalized, without pretense. Guests enjoy a more authentic, engaging destination experience, visiting hidden harbors and secluded coves larger ships can't reach. Windstar sails to over 50 countries, calling at over 150 ports throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, & the Panama Canal, and Tahiti.

Sailing under the banner of its appropriate tag line "180º From Ordinary," Windstar offers an alternative to the typical cruise or resort vacation. The Windstar passenger sees the world from a romantic sailing ship or a sleek, sexy power yacht with luxurious accommodations, a casual yet elegant atmosphere, and exquisite service and cuisine.
