Ellyn and Sue's Excellent Adventure!


Zim guide and guests

Partners, Ellyn and Sue, are the adventurous type. In May 2010, they experienced their "best vacation ever" - a trip to Africa, customized for them by Global Sojourns. From being the only guests in the Khwai Tented Camp, to having a leopard use their truck to facilitate her kill, to viewing wildlife from foot, vehicle, boat, horseback and even an elephant's back, their trip was filled with unforgettable experiences.
They shared their travel log with us on our blog.

"You can understand the weight of the declaration that our trip to Africa was the best vacation ever! Much of it had to do with the flawless and detailed planning that Priscilla Macy of Global Sojourns provided."

While you may not be an international spy, you'll love the "UnderCover Security Wallet" by Eagle Creek.

We love it because it's lightweight, secure and very functional. With multiple pockets for cash, coin, passports, airline tickets and a variety of items, you'll feel secure knowing your important travel items are with you, while the adjustable strap will leave your hands free for great photo ops.

Besides customizing itineraries, we do offer a few group trips each year as we have such fun exploring places together!

Global Sojourns' Egypt Trip

At the request of one of our seasoned Sojourners, we are pleased to add Egypt to our carefully cultivated list of destinations. Along with exploring the impressive archaeological finds of ancient civilizations, in true Global Sojourns form, we'll get off-the-beaten-path.  We'll set sail on our private traditional Dahabia boat and venture into towns and markets on the banks of the great Nile River. We'll meet with locals, visit villages and farms, wander among incredibly unique limestone formations and maybe even hear stories from a local Bedouin. We'll even enjoy a night under the stars in the magical White Desert.

Due to the great interest in this trip since it was first announced, we are offering two departures for this trip - February 2011 and October of 2011 and may even add more.
Space is limited so read the itinerary and let us know soon if you're interested in joining us!
