The theme of new expedition travel outfitters Gift of Go (GOGO) is “Adventures without Tourism,” and the launch is a spectacular journey into the remote Serra do Espinhaço region of Brazil. Between March and September, travelers can choose from 14-, 21- or 28-day curated Diamonds/Wild Tales + Lost Trails expeditions for small groups limited to eight participants.

“We are living in the Golden Age of picture-perfect places, carefully-crafted ‘authenticity,’ and Readily-collectible ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experiences,” said Eddie Lott, cofounder, GOGO. “GOGO trips are different — in our minds, there is simply nothing more compelling, profound, or enriching than experiencing real life in a world far from our own. Our shared mission as an expedition — to explore a place to the absolute fullest within a limited timeframe — is ambitious, but it’s also what makes our journeys epic.”

Accompanied by a crew of 10-plus travel experts and expedition leaders, travelers have the opportunity to discover the UNESCO World Heritage City of Diamantina, colonial-era mining towns, small agricultural communities, enchanting railway towns, graceful historic villas and backcountry settlements called quilombos.

Bushwhacking, horseback riding, off-roading, trekking and cultural immersion are all part of the journey. Itineraries are divided into chapters, with the Diamond trip including The Serra (Mountains), The Garden (Hinterland), The Sertão (lowlands) and The Berço (the cradle). Accommodations include a mix of homestays, historic inns, wilderness campsites, pousada, lodges and historic homes.

Come Face-to-Face with Mountain Gorillas on a Trek in Uganda

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
