Technorati Tags: ,

Guests Can “Dream of Africa” with Kindle Wireless Reading Devices

Pre-loaded with Epic Tales of Love and Adventure in the African Bush~

Few love stories are as well-known — or well-loved — as Karen Blixen (aka Isak Dinesen)’s sweeping memoir, “Out of Africa”, the epic tale of her life and loves in the African bush. What better time to kindle (or re-kindle) romance, then, than 2010, which marks the 25th anniversary of the classic film version of “Out of Africa”, starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford?

Micato Safaris’ Kindle Romance in Kenya itinerary offers a perfect balance of adventurous wildlife viewing, luxurious, private accommodations and romantic activities—all certain to inspire love. And, to set the stage, Micato will send all booked guests a Collector’s Edition DVD of “Out of Africa” and a Kindle wireless reading device pre-loaded with tales of love and adventure in East Africa, including Ernest Hemingway’s “Green Hills of Africa”, Anita Shreve’s instant classic “A Change in Altitude”, and Beryl Markham’s renowned novel, “West with the Night”. The Kindles will also be loaded with guides to East African flora, fauna and culture. Perfect airplane reading for the journey to Kenya!

The special touches continue once guests land and they experience Micato Safaris’ unparalleled personalized service and passion for excellence, ensuring the creation of warm memories that will last a lifetime.

The 9-day journey, departing Wednesday, February 10, 2010* includes:

Day 1 Depart the U.S.

Days 2-3 Giraffe Manor, Nairobi

Giraffe Manor, an elegant, small and exclusive hotel famous for its resident herd of giraffe, offers a rich blend of welcoming accommodation, highly trained and friendly staff, as well as one of Nariobi’s finest kitchens. The Manor, which contains some of Karen Blixen’s original furniture, is surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest just outside of the Kenyan capital. During their stay here, they will enjoy a private tour of the National Museum of Kenya, a visit to the legendary Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, where couples can “adopt” a rescued elephant orphan, dinner at Tatu steakhouse at Nairobi’s historic Fairmont, The Norfolk Hotel, and, of course, a tour of Karen Blixen’s former home and tea estate.

Days 4-5 Sasaab, Samburu

Fly to Samburu for two days at Saasab, perched above the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. Here, couples will enjoy camel walks, game drives (the area is known for plentiful Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, elephants, lions, leopards and cheetah), visits with local villagers, and sundowner cocktails atop a rocky kopje reminiscent of the famed movie.

Back at the lodge, they may choose to enjoy a couples’ massage in the privacy of their own tent, or to relax together in their private plunge pool.

On Valentine’s Day (Day 5), couples will dine al fresco under the stars with an elaborately prepared bush dinner, complete with china, crystal, hanging lanterns, gourmet delicacies and Dom Perignon! A chorus of Samburu warriors provides the entertainment, serenading couples with traditional tribal courtship melodies.

Days 6-7 Sala’s Camp, Maasai Mara.

Depart for Sala’s Camp in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. This secluded spot is nestled on the convergence of two rivers and offers tranquility and spectacular views along the Sand River towards Tanzania and the Serengeti. Guests will enjoy accommodation in the camp’s deluxe Honeymoon Tent.

At Sala’s Camp, life is at leisure…. enjoy reading a love story in a hammock by the river, fire-side cocktails, and some of the most spectacular game viewing in the world. The highlight, without a doubt, will be a sunrise hot-air balloon ride high above the savannah!

Day 8 Give Back the Love: AmericaShare Visit

After a week of re-connecting and remembering the importance of the human bond, couples will visit Mukuru, a slum on Nairobi’s outskirts. It is here that Micato Safaris’ non-profit foundation, AmericaShare, is doing important work to provide women and children living with HIV/AIDS with education and tools for sustainable living. AmericaShare’s School Sponsorship program has taken thousands of vulnerable children off the streets and placed them in reputable boarding schools, forever changing the direction of their lives.

Couples will meet some of these very special women and children, spending time getting to know them, learning about their lives It’s not uncommon for Micato travelers, so completely astounded by their visit, to decide on the spot to sponsor a child’s education.

To truly know Africa — and its people — is to love it. We encourage our guests to share the love!

Day 9 Return to the U.S.

Micato Safaris’ Kindle Romance in Kenya Safari is priced at $11,735 per person, based on double occupancy. (Rate excludes international airfare.) For more information, visit www.micato.com or call 1-800-MICATO-1.

Though open for less than a year at the Beau-Rivage Palace, Anne-Sophie Pic’s restaurant has already redefined dining in Lausanne and added an exciting dimension to Switzerland’s most legendary palace hotel.
Anne-Sophie is the third generation of her family to hold the coveted 3-star rating and is currently the only female chef in France with the distinction.  Now she has taken her culinary recognition to an even higher level by adding Michelin stars in Switzerland.

When embarking on her Swiss adventure, Anne-Sophie Pic became expert on local produce, met with highly qualified Swiss artisans and assembled a stellar team, all of which has elevated the cuisine at Anne-Sophie Pic at the Beau-Rivage Palace to meet the chef’s standards and expectations.  

The Menu beaurivageannsophiepicFor Anne-Sophie Pic at the Beau-Rivage Palace (pictured, at right), Anne-Sophie has created an à la carte menu and three prix-fixe menus that naturally combine the exacting simplicity that is characteristic of her work with the high standards of the Beau-Rivage Palace.  Inspired by nature, the menu tells the story of purity of ingredients, balance of flavors and sophistication of textures.

The à la carte menu is composed of five appetizers, four fish and crustacean selections, and five roast meat selections.  The selections change constantly to make each dining experience a new adventure. As for the three prix-fixe menus: "Emotions" represents the chef’s imaginary escapade; "Pic Collection" reveals the family’s classics and a rich inheritance of shared flavors and values; and lastly a "Business Lunch" confirms that quality can be simple and straightforward.

Exploring Ancient China with Abercrombie & Kent

    Follow the Fabled Silk Road

    For more information on Exploring Ancient China and The Chinese Silk Road consult Abercrombie & Kent’s Orient, India & the Pacific 2010.  Download or order a complimentary copy at www.abercrombiekent.com or call 800 554 7094 to speak with a destination specialist.

    Just as the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibit sparked renewed interest in ancient Egypt, a new exhibit at New York’s American Museum of Natural History is expected to generate interest in the fabled Silk Road that linked China with the Islamic world.  Ancient travellers trekked for months on foot or by camel, through inhospitable deserts and mountain passes, but Abercrombie & Kent takes modern-day adventurers behind the façade of modern China to experience the wonders along the Silk Road in luxury and comfort on Exploring Ancient China (fifteen days from $7,995). (Prices are per person, double occupancy.)

Designed by Gerald Hatherly, named a “Top Travel Specialist” by Conde Nast Traveler, Exploring Ancient China takes travellers from modern-day Beijing to the far reaches of the Gobi Desert and the capital cities of ancient dynasties, places that have changed little in the intervening years. “It’s a journey that captures the romance of the Silk Road by travelling far off-the-beaten path to reveal the cross-cultural influences in this historically- and culturally-important region,” explains Hatherly. “Places like these — which once required a difficult and arduous journey — can now be explored in relative comfort.”

While the ancient Silk Road was once unsurpassed in moving goods across entire continents, just as important was the exchange of cultures and ideas fostered by the camel caravans. Discuss these influences with scholars at the Dunhuang Institute, the leading research facility devoted to the study of the Mogao Caves, then join an expert guide for a tour of select caves (including some normally closed to the public) that heralded the rise of Buddhism in China. In the great walled city of Pingyao, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its narrow streets dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties, explore Buddhist and Daoist traditions at the ancestral Temple at Jinci. Travel to Zhengzhou to meet the warrior monks of Shaolin and meditate in the great Chan (Zen) Temple at the foot of Mount Song, the central pillar of the Daoist world. Later attend a private performance of Shaolin wushu (martial arts).

While Chinese Buddhist traditions are familiar to most people, the influences exerted by Islam and Judaism are not.  First constructed by Persian merchants who travelled to Xian via the Silk Road, the Muslim Quarter is home to the Great Mosque, the oldest and largest in China. Unlike mosques in Middle Eastern countries, it is Chinese in its construction and architectural style, with a series of serene courtyards leading to the mosque entrance. Ancient Kaifeng is home to an unusual living legacy: a tiny Jewish community founded 1,000 years ago where you meet a local family and learn about their historic ties to the Silk Road.

Abercrombie & Kent pioneered luxury travel in China, opening its first office in Hong Kong in 1983. Deep roots have made it possible for A&K to offer a degree of access and insight no other travel company can match. A&K’s Private Travel specialists can also customize a private journey following in the footsteps of the traders, pilgrims and explorers of the past along The Chinese Silk Road (fourteen days from $7,090).

CRUISECOMPETE ENRICHES OFFERINGS WITH UNIQUE CRUISES TO CLASSICAL CIVILIZATIONS

Cruise travelers with affinities for history and antiquities, art, archaeology and adventure travel can now opt for unique cultural destination experiences through CruiseCompete.com’s addition of Voyages to Antiquity cruises.

CruiseCompete.com, where travel agents compete to offer consumers the best deals on cruises, caters to savvy vacation travelers and is pleased to announce this additional offering.

Voyages to Antiquity, the new cruise line introduced by Orient Lines’ founder Gerry Herrod, provides innovative destination experiences at incomparable value. The inaugural season begins May 2010 and features itineraries focused entirely on the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Aegean Seas, as well as North Africa and the Red Sea.

Technorati Tags: ,

All port-intensive itineraries have been meticulously planned to reveal as much as possible of the extraordinary wealth of natural beauty and classical history that the Mediterranean has to offer. From the elegance of ancient Greek architecture to the monumental splendor of Roman cities to the wonders of Egypt’s Pyramids, the aim is to bring to life the exciting and inspiring classical civilizations of the Mediterranean.

Mediterranean itineraries trace the “cradle of civilization” cultures – Roman, Egyptian, Greek and Byzantine — calling at many destinations that not all ships of today can reach. “This is clearly a product that appeals to clients who appreciate a fascinating experience which provides the ultimate in enrichment, education, and fulfillment in a relaxed environment,” said CruiseCompete CEO Bob Levinstein.

The nine itineraries with 16 departures are an excellent way for individual and group travelers to satisfy their affinity for history and antiquities, adventure travel, archaeology, art, museum associations, religious organizations, and more, added Levinstein.

The value starts with included shore excursions, gratuities for stateroom and restaurant staff, house wine at dinner, and special shore events like a private evening in the Doge’s Palace in Venice. With air add-ons available from free to $199 and a deluxe outside stateroom at around $6,500 per person, Voyages to Antiquity offers an in-depth and rich experience for an extraordinary price.
