South Africa may be on the other side of the world (the flight is 18-plus hours from the U.S.), but this southernmost country in Africa is a destination unlike any other. The beautiful country features vast savannahs for safaris, beautiful beaches, lush winelands, cosmopolitan cities, a rich cultural history and landmark geography.
Most flights from the U.S. arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, which began as a gold-mining settlement. Its Soweto township was once home to Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu and today offers a glimpse into the country’s struggle to end segregation.
From Johannesburg, adventurers in search of big game head to Kruger National Park on safari, where park rangers guide visitors through the wilderness on a quest to see the big five (elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and buffalos). The rugged landscape, dotted with luxury lodging, is a place to connect with nature and truly get away from it all.
No trip to South Africa is complete without a stop in Cape Town, South Africa’s second largest and most stunning city. Shadowed by Table Mountain, which you can visit via cable car, this buzzy port city is bustling with art galleries, trendy restaurants, great shopping and a coastline of diverse beachscapes. Just 20 minutes outside the city, the Constantia wine route features vineyards dating back to the 1600s. Or enjoy a drive around the Cape Peninsula, stopping to see the penguins at Boulder’s Beach.
The incredible size of the continent of Africa is often hard to believe. The flight time from Johannesburg to Egypt is over twenty hours. Understandably, many of our clients want to maximize their time and see other countries beyond South Africa such as Kenya or Namibia. It can be done but it requires a good amount of time and budget. Let’s explore the options!
Dreaming of Africa? We’ll create a plan for an incredible adventure for families, solos, honeymooners and more.
The Summer 2020 Olympics, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, will take place in Tokyo July 24- August 9, 2020. It's not Japan's first time hosting this epic international sporting event. Tokyo hosted the Summer Games in 1964, and the Winter Games were held in Sapporo in 1972 and Nagano in 1998.
Set at 33 venues around Tokyo, 28 of which are within five miles of the Olympic Village, the Summer Olympic Games will boast eleven new venues, including a new National Stadium that will be the site of the Opening and Closing ceremonies.
In addition to popular sports such as swimming, gymnastics and track and field, these Games will debut several new Olympic sports, including karate, sport climbing, surfing and skateboarding.
Purchasing tickets to one of the 339 events can be complicated. Currently, tickets are only available to Japanese residents through official websites. International ticket buyers need to work with authorized ticket resellers for the United States.
In addition to the Olympics, there is much to see and do in this exciting city--from dining on local delicacies at the Toyosu Market to shopping in the Ginza to discovering the latest trends in Shibuya. Mount Fuji, Kyoto, and Osaka are also excellent nearby trips.
It's late in the game for tickets, but maybe we’ll still find gold. Don't delay, let's talk today!
Thinking about traveling in the upcoming year but don't know where to go? Ask us. As travel advisors, we do the research and follow the trends to uncover the hottest travel destinations. In addition to Tokyo, here are a few spots we're sending clients to in the year ahead:
Montenegro—Often overlooked for its neighbor, Croatia, charming Montenegro has several new luxe hotels opening in 2020. The highly anticipated 60-acre Portonovi Marina and Waterfront resort in Boka Bay looks amazing.
Scotland—Scotland's tourism market is on the rise, with a 10 percent increase in overseas tourists in 2019. Castles, gorgeous greenery and world-class golf make this history-rich destination an appealing spot for relaxation, leisure and culture.
Israel—With its $480-million expansion to the Ben Gurion Airport, Israel is also set to open six new hotel properties from Jordache Enterprises Group and 11 from Isrotel.
Washington, DC—Tourism in our nation's capital always increases during a Presidential election year. Celebrate democracy and embrace United States history with a visit to the city's monuments, museums and historic landmarks.
