In February I had the most fantastic month on the Spirit of Enderby with Don McIntyre & many other experts, sailing to Antarctica. I'm still on a high from all we saw & achieved in that trip of a lifetime. Penguins, albatrosses, whales, seabirds galore, plus visits to Scott's Huts,2x, Shackleton's Hut & Campbell's snow cave site on Inexpressible Is, McMurdo & Scott Bases with personal tours, Ross Ice Shelf,10 days total in Antarctica with many sub-Antarctic Islands on the way. This trip was everything advertised and heaps more above & beyond. Superb.

Heritage Expeditions helps you get to the most remote places of ineffable beauty with comfort and ease. I just got back from the "Chukotka: where Russia's Day Begins" expedition that included two days at Wrangel Island. For half of the expedition I was pinching myself to make sure that this is actually real. On this special expedition we met the people, saw and listened to their stories and learned of their love for and strong connection with the land and the sea. Wildlife lovers just couldn't put their cameras down: polar bears, whales, snowy owls, puffins, seals, walruses...there was always some kind of magnificent creature around.
Also the relatively small group sizes ensure the most personal touch from the crew and amazing landing opportunities that big groups do not have.

I've just been on a Heritage Expeditions trip to Siberia – and it was terrific. I hadn't seen a bear in my life on the Monday; I'd seen 46 by the Friday. Also dozens of whales, including big pods of belugas, and thousands upon thousands of birds. Good Russian crew, knowledgeable, friendly staff and excellent tucker.

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
