Adventure tour company Boundless Journeys has announced three special travel opportunities for 2008. From a Tanzania safari with a volunteer element, to a one-time-only Turkey walking tour and cruise, to an additional date for their popular Galapagos Islands cruise, Boundless Journeys' active trips offer something for everyone:
Tanzania Volunteer Safari
Special Charity Event: July 14-23, 2008; 10 days; $4895 per person
In the midst of one of East Africa?s most beautiful game viewing areas are people living in extreme poverty, with few resources and voices rarely heard by the rest of the world. This year when guests join Boundless Journeys' July 14-23 Tanzania safari, their participation will benefit The Foundation for African Medicine and Education.
Turkey Walking Tour
Special Departure: August 31-September12, 2008; 13 days; $5295 per person
From Istanbul, the historic city astride the border of Europe and Asia, Boundless Journeys' guests venture into Cappadocia, a region of exceptional natural wonders characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. Here, travelers hike amid bizarre rock formations and discover local artisan's shops. A stay in a wonderfully unusual cave hotel completes the experience.
On the Turquoise Coast, guests explore beautiful coves and hidden villages from a traditional tirhandil-styled boat. Dotted with islands and rife with mythological history, the azure waters of the Turquoise Coast invite guests to snorkel, swim, and explore the dazzling coastline on foot.
Galapagos Islands cruise
New Date Announced: October 30-November 8; 10 days; $4295 per person
This naturalist-led Galapagos Islands cruise on a 16-passenger private yacht introduces guests to the many unique wonders of Darwin?s archipelago. Visit blue-footed boobies, land iguanas basking in the sun, lively sea lions, and families of penguins, among many other diverse species. This active adventure allows guests to discover the Galapagos from many different perspectives, snorkeling with sea lions, walking on volcanic islands, paddling kayaks through peaceful mangrove lagoons, strolling bare-footed along sun drenched beaches, or simply lying back and relaxing in the equatorial sun.
