Unique travel experiences are very important to the contemporary luxury traveler. As a result, journey planners like Abercrombie and Kent, and now Seasons are going out on a limb to ensure that their clients enjoy the best luxury holidays, In fact, luxury tour operator Seasons has just launched a pair of brochures for 2012 for clients traveling to either Africa or Asia and Australasia. (This is in addition to Seasons’ 2012 brochures for the Caribbean, Mexico & Florida; the Indian Ocean & Middle East; and Europe & North Africa.)
The journey planner has compiled a range of exciting new and emerging tour plans for each travel destination. So, not only will luxury travelers be able to enjoy a relaxing holiday, but they will also discover new cultures, natural beauty, man-made marvels and more. An overview map highlights the main attractions for each travel destination. There are tips on what to do, as well as information like weather and flights. Moreover, the Seasons team also lists out drawbacks for specific places. Clients are encouraged look through the brochure and list out their favorites, so that Seasons can prepare a customized travel itinerary for them.
Here is a look at the two new travel brochures:
For the first time ever, Seasons is venturing into African territory. The highlighted travel spots include less traveled areas like Malawi and Rwanda, in addition to the more popular African travel hotspots. Families can set out on a safari of the Kalahari Desert or head to Botswana’s Abu Camp for a closer look at the resident herd of elephants. Abu Camp has proved a big hit with animal lovers, for it presents a unique opportunity for guests to physically interact with the beautiful animals. For more encounters with animals, guests can go looking for black rhinos and meerkats in Tswalu Kalahari or try their hand at catching tiger fish in Zambia.
The brochure also provides itineraries for covering two locations at one go. Suggestions include Kenya and Zanzibar, and South Africa and Mozambique. The “Township Tour” of Johannesburg comes highly recommended, as does staying at the oldest Cape Dutch Farm, Babylonstoren in Franschhoek.
2. Asia and Australasia
Travelers have been flocking to this region over the last few years, and with good reason. There is so much diversity in the region. One of the new entrants on the Seasons 2012 brochure is Sri Lanka. The luxury tour operator suggests taking the Tea Train in Sri Lanka to experience on of the prettiest rail journeys in Asia. The volcanoes, rainforests, ocean, nightlife and culture of Indonesia and The Philippines make these two South East Asian countries feature prominently on this tourism list. Of course, old favorites like monument-rich India and tranquil Bhutan also make it to the Seasons list. Seasons has also created a number of itineraries for family holidays, which includes everything from kite-making classes to learning kung fu in China.
In Australia, the Seasons team recommends Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island. The coral reef that surrounds the island is the world’s southernmost reef and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marine enthusiasts could go searching for whale sharks in Western Australia or catch a helicopter ride over the rugged Blue Mountains.
