Destinations / Africa

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.

Rich in History: Explore Gilded Age Mansions and More in Newport, Rhode Island

Originally a thriving Colonial seaport, Newport became the summer playground for the Gilded Age’s elite in the late 1880s. Today their mansions dot the coast of Aquidneck Island, and their favorite pastimes — sailing and tennis — still dominate the city’s recreational offerings. In fact, Newport hosted the first U.S. Open tennis championship in 1881 and golf tourna- ment in 1895 and hosted the America’s Cup from 1930 to 1983. You can experience most of Newport on your own, including the mansions, but don’t rule out a guided tour or two when you visit.
