There is nothing quite like that feeling of getting a new stamp in your passport. One stamp represents so much: exploration, excitement, education, goals, and adventure. Sparked by some extra time at home during the pandemic, we discovered a way to bring all of that to you from comfort of home, helping inspire your next Extraordinary Journey with us. Join us for our upcoming passport events.

If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that we, as humans, have a very real need to be out exploring and interacting with the world around us. One thing we learned during the pandemic was how to stay connected with each other no matter the distance. In the world of travel, we are fortunate to meet and work with so many incredible people who influence and shape the world we live in.

Through Passports, we will bring these people into your homes, take you to new places, explore new ideas, and inspire and inform your next extraordinary journey. Each webinar will take place on Zoom, but take on variety of forms. From talks by safari camp interior designers, expert guides, biologists, naturalists, to panels and how-to sessions to hands-on interactions and even wine tasting evenings with expert sommelliers—turns out we can do a whole lot from home. How incredible is it that we’re able to share incredible people in all facets of the travel industry with you, wherever you are in the world.

As the world opens up, something that remains an important part of our business is the ability to virtually connect with people and places around the world.

When you register, we will send you a recording after the event whether or not you are able to attend live.
