Wilderness Safaris and White Desert partnered to offer travelers exclusive African and Antarctic journeys. The first two itineraries kick off in November and December 2021.


In Legendary Landscapes: Antarctica and Botswana, guests explore the highlights of Cape Town, Botswana and Antarctica. The 15-day trip begins with two nights at the luxurious Cape Grace Hotel before departing on a private jet to White Desert’s new Wolf’s Fang Camp. During the four-night stay, guests fly to Atka Bay to experience the birth of emperor penguin chicks. Other activities include ice trekking and exploration of caves and ice tunnels led by expert guides. Guests return to Cape Town for another two-night stay before starting the Botswana leg of the trip in the Okavango Delta. Guests will spend three nights at Wilderness Safaris’ Vumbura Plains Camp and three nights at DumaTau. Here, guests can take part in guided game drives, canoe trips, nature walks and wildlife encounters. The tour is available for up to 12 guests and takes place Nov. 22–Dec. 6.


The second itinerary, Wild Desert Adventure: Antarctica and Namibia, runs Dec. 27–Jan. 14. On the 19-day trip, guests spend six nights at Wolf’s Fang Camp followed by an overnight excursion to the South Pole. Guests of this trip can take advantage of the same Atka Bay activities as the first trip. Up next is a two-night stay at One&Only Cape Town before flying to Namibia. This leg of the tour brings guests to the Namib Desert with a stay at Wilderness Safaris’ rebuilt Little Kulala. Next, guests fly to the north west of the country for a photography experience at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. The trip concludes with a stay at Serra Cafema.

Initiatives Strive to Empower Travelers with Invisible Disabilities

Passengers with “invisible” disabilities — including autism, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, anxiety, chronic pain, vision and hearing impairments, and epilepsy — have endured a long haul toward feeling truly welcome in the skies and at gates. But times are changing, as government agencies, trade associations and advocacy organizations step forward to empower them to be more visible ... and on their terms.

Travel Galore

This issue felt like a warm memory, as it allowed me to reminisce on my last few 2022 trips. In October I joined Francis X. Gallagher and Haley Fogarty on a trip to Chicago, where I squeezed in a visit to one of the city’s newest spas (page 26), and in November, my husband, Scott, and I enjoyed an incredible trip to France, sailing the Seine River from Paris through Normandy. Follow along on our itinerary on page 74 and enjoy the gorgeous fall views of the French countryside in my photo. Yes, I’m still dreaming of those croissants ... and the macarons ... and the cheese, the wine — well, you get the point.
