If the seventh continent has been on your bucket list, join us as we discover one of the last true wilderness areas on earth! This final frontier and its wild beauty, the stuff of legends. Encounter whales, seals and penguins by the thousands. Gaze into the midnight sun and feel the crunch of ice under your boots as you walk where few have ever stepped. Antarctica must truly be seen to be believed! But the cold - and the seas?! This certainly isn’t the Caribbean, but it is summer in the southern hemisphere where average temperatures on the shores of the continent range from the 20s to near 50! Cold yes, frigid, nope! You’ll be cruising on a 9 deck, 500 passenger ship that is perfectly suited for Antarctica with open sea stabilizers. This discovery tour doesn’t just do a ‘cruise-by’, you’ll have six days in Antarctica to explore ashore and in small craft motoring through iceberg-rich waters feeling like a true polar explorer!

American Queen Steam Boat Company, Antebellum South
Explore the land of bawdy blues and Southern belles on this journey which showcases the history and beauty of the Lower Mississippi River in the springtime! From Memphis to New Orleans, the river rolls slowly and expansively, smooth as a southern drawl. The woodlands and bayous along the shore create dramatic landscapes that are virtually unchanged since the days of the French fur traders. Antebellum mansions resting beside old magnolias and moss-draped oaks look especially beautiful at this time of year as they are framed by blazing azaleas, camellias, crape myrtle, dogwood and flowering jasmines. History is everywhere - in silent Civil War cemeteries and virtually everywhere you turn. Learn more about this historic adventure! To reserve your spot please use this form and return to Jane Pugh.

Kenya Photo Safari with optional Wonders of Tanzania extension
Join us and embark on the trip of a lifetime on a Kenyan Wing Safari! Safari, which means "journey" in Swahili, is an experience you'll never forget and we have worked to ensure every detail has been arranged to perfection. Not all Safari programs are created equally, and this 5 Star program is unlike anything you have experienced. As you travel from the northern reaches of the Aberdare National Forest to the world famous Maasai Mara in Southern Kenya, you'll find the people to be warm and friendly and the animals beyond imagination! Surely, a major draw is seeing elephant, lion, cheetah and giraffe in the wild. What few imagine is how the people of Kenya have touched them, from the school girls you meet and women who create beautiful wool rugs to your safari guide who is the best in the business! We invite you to join us and experience the unexpected. Learn more about this trip of a lifetime.
Optional Wonders of Tanzania extension: You'll find this region of incredible national beauty with some of the best game-viewing in the world. Nearly twenty percent of this vast and spectacular country is protected and you'll find the Great Rift Valley with its dramatic volcanic landscape home to some of the most fertile grazing grounds on earth. The Ngorongoro Crater is not only home to amazing wildlife, but the Maasai people live and farm here as they have for centuries. With an ecosystem that supports some of the most plentiful animal populations left in the world, the wildlife will seem bigger, stockier, stronger and sturdier than anyplace else. To go on safari in Tanzania is always a fascinating and exclusive experience. Learn more about this Tanzania extension.
