Burma (or Myanmar) and I have had a passionate, long-distance love affair since I first set foot in the country in 2005. At the time I was a travel neophyte, but quickly getting a heady dose of the globe while sailing around the world with Semester at Sea. Ours was the first sailing to visit Yangon since the 1997 US embargo and it felt rebellious and a little dangerous to step off that boat and onto the marshy banks of the Irrawaddy River. Men on mopeds wearing long, tube skirts that I didn’t yet know were longyis and drivers of rusted WWII era freight trucks hauling enormous trunks of teak trees pulled over to gaze curiously at the large ship. Our vessel was alone and seemingly out of place at the small antiquated river jetty. Tourism wasn’t happening in Burma at the time. Unlike the ports we had embarked upon...

  Let me start by saying India never ceases to amaze me! My recent trip gave me some great insights and ideas for exploring the wonders of the vast subcontinent. I spent my trip rambling through Rajasthan, reconnecting with our guides, meandering through villages, and checking in at our favorite boutique properties. There is always some new and spectacular that reveals itself during my travels and that is what makes India such an incredible destination.   Our Tigers and Travels Adventure is an in-depth exploration of India's rich natural and cultural heritage: standing in awe at the Taj Mahal, watching the sunrise on the Ganges River in Varanasi, ambling among forts and villages of Rajasthan, and venturing deep into the jungles Kanha and Bandavgarh National Parks in search of the Bengal tiger. You just can't find anything like India anywhere else in the world. We want to fill the remaining...

Traveling to India is never just a vacation, it's an opportunity to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, tastes and spirit of divergent ancient cultures. Our 19-day Tigers and Travels Adventure is the most comprehensive and in-depth exploration of India's rich natural and cultural heritage. This trip was chosen by National Geographic Traveler as a "Tour of a Lifetime" and one of their "10 Great Adventure Trips That Give Back" for our conservation program to protect tigers. Regardless of all the awards, what really matters is the guest experience and this trip really provides our travelers with a taste of the real India. Below is a short video about what our guests thought and felt while they were on the trip. In addition, a few quotes from our travelers. What a great introduction to Indian culture and history including the excitement of a tiger safari! I never imagined that India...

How do you find a tiger in wild, and what's it like when you encounter one? On just one trip of our Tigers and Travels in India several tiger sightings were caught on film by a professional Indian filmmaker who was traveling with us and captured on this video including a tiger walking straight towards our vehicle! Grace Liu's picture of the tiger walking straight towards our jeep. "My heart was pounding, like it was out of my chest!", exclaimed Patty Webb. "It was awesome, amazing, to see her walking towards us, looking right at us, and how graceful she was," says Grace Liu. "You feel that you're the guest, and she's the master," relates Olena Voloshyna. "We didn't expect her to stay on the road, but she did, ever so slowly, and we kept backing up, and backing up," recounted Lorraine Ruffing.   When searching for a tiger in...

  On my trip to India last month I was most excited about returning to Udaipur, the lovely lakeside town in southern Rajasthan. I have fond memories of chatting with locals while browsing the shops in the small streets and enjoying dinner from a rooftop restaurant looking out to the lake and the hills. The visit this time did not disappoint. As often happens in India with its abundance of holidays, we ran into a religious festival.   We followed a parade of devotees down to the lakeside and watched as they washed their pink-dusted Ganesh statues in the water. The parade was accompanied by drumming and singing and we found ourselves swept up in a dance with school girls and their mothers who were pleased to have a few foreign women to join in the festivities. With two amazing luxury hotels, Udaipur is an excellent destination to stop and...
