I had been wanting to visit the Aysen region of Patagonia but logistics are difficult to work out and infrastructure is limited. When I saw that MTS was offering a first-time trip there we took advantage of the opportunity to explore this largely unvisited region.
Zimbabwe has long been on the top of my bucket list and after years of anticipation, I was finally able to take the plunge and embark on one of the most fun-filled safaris I’ve experienced yet. Scouting for our new Victoria Falls & Hwange Safari Adventure, I saw Victoria Falls, explored by safari vehicle and by foot Hwange National Park, and canoed the Zambezi in both Zambezi National Park and Mana Pools National Park. Each day was a thrilling adventure filled with unbelievably good wildlife sightings, fascinating and illuminating conversations with locals, and activities that kept me moving and shaking—and having a blast!

My daughter and I had talked about a bucket-list trip to Kilimanjaro a few years ago, but finally in the middle of last year her reminder made me realize that if we were going to do this trip, it was now. After some initial research, our travel agent put us onto Mountain Travel Sobek to coordinate an ascent of Kilimanjaro followed by a four-day safari. We signed on, and having just returned from that trip, there is no question it was the best decision we made to make this a truly memorable trip.
