Virtuoso Life - May/June 2018 - 61
maybe 40 to 150 people rather than
thousands, the guides are excellent, and,
depending on the destination, there are
opportunities to hike, kayak, snorkel, and
learn photography tips from National Geographic experts. And it's casual - Paul isn't
into wearing black tie for dinner.
A safari favorite, Botswana.
Wherever we go, we bring home a little cat.
We have a little green guy from Zambia
made out of malachite, and a silvery-black
one from China. In Portugal, we found one
made of brown pottery.
We used to lug big, heavy binoculars. Now
we take the Nikon Travelite. They're powerful, waterproof, and fit in a jacket pocket.
There's quite a list: Madagascar. South America. We'd like to go to the Canadian Arctic and
Norway. I'd return to Antarctica. We've done
safaris in South Africa, but didn't golf. Oh, and
Australia is high on the list.
SMALL SHIP CRU IS ING
The joy of discovering someplace new.
Our small ship cruises showcase the best of land by sea, charting a course for hidden harbors and ports perfectly sized for intimate shore excursions with as
few as 40 guests or less than 300 aboard. In 2019 that includes arctic adventures in Norway and Alaska, two cultural voyages that discover Scottish traditions
in the outer islands and life along America's Great Lakes, plus the brand new Ponant Explorer Series ships, each designed to discover someplace new.
