Zambia and Nicaragua are both astounding travel destinations…


Zambia is one of Africa’s most stable and peaceful countries. This landlocked country in Southern Africa is home to 14.5 million friendly and welcoming people. The country is best know for the spectacular Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and by some measures the largest waterfall in the world. On our regular trips to Zambia we combine a visit to the Victoria Falls with a full day safari to Chobe National Park in Botswana. This National Park has an abundance of wild life, including lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, elephants, impalas, kudus, crocodiles, hippos and various species of birds – one more colorful than the other. The park ranks among the best National Parks in Africa.


Nicaragua is one of the largest countries in Central America, yet home to just 6 million people. The biodiversity, active volcanoes and warm tropical climate make Nicaragua an increasing popular tourist destination and was named Top Destinations to Watch in 2014 by Conde Naste and Best in Travel in 2015 by Lonely Planet. Hiking an active volcano, volcano boarding, exploring the cultural capital of the country, Granada, surfing and scuba diving are just a few of the exceptional experiences you can choose from.
