The Americas

The Americas: Luxury & Private Safaris

You don’t have to travel clear across the world to escape the everyday. Your next great adventure might (practically) be in your own backyard, or in a similar time zone at the very least. Although you can easily spend weeks in a single country, travel throughout the Americas is also ideal for anyone looking for a quick escape. A Friday night red-eye gets you to South America’s main gateways by early morning. From there, it’s very reasonable to wrangle a meaningful trip before settling back to work just one week later. Hike the furthest reaches of Patagonia. Island-hop around the Galapagos. Climb to the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu. Taste the wines of Mendoza. With far less travel, you can cruise down Cuba’s vibrant Malecon, glamp on the beaches of Baja and swim with whale sharks, or let your hair down on the dude ranches of the American Southwest. Though less far-flung than the interior of Africa or the deserts of India, a safari in the Americas is certainly just as wild.

Unforgettable experiences on a safari in The Americas

  • Swim with whale sharks and sleep in a luxurious tented camp on Isla Espiritu, a remote island heralded as a ‘mini-Galapagos’ in the Sea of Cortez, Baja, Mexico.
  • Travel the streets of Old Havana in a retro automobile and savor the sights and sounds of the buzzing Malecon.
  • Explore Chile and Argentina’s southern ice fields. Walk the catwalks, boat, kayak, hike, and trek on the glaciers; toast your experience with a drink ‘on the glacial rocks’.
  • Hike the Salkantay Trail, a lodge to lodge hiking adventure through a historic section of Inca trail spanning 15 different eco-systems. Explore villages where locals still maintain age-old traditions and re-discover the mystical beauty of Machu Picchu.
  • Looking for exclusivity? Let us set up a private camp just for your friends and family to explore some of North America’s greatest parks. From the shores of Lake Powell to the majesty of Grand Teton, Big Sky, or Crested Butte, explore the United States alongside expert guides and all-inclusive activities.
