[In Focus with Michele Burgess]


 

***EXOTIC TRAVEL DESTINATIONS***

TOUR WITH A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

TO EXTRAORDINARY WORLD PLACES

Exotic destinations and grand adventures worldwide
with Michele Burgess, professional travel and wildlife photographer

 

 

Enjoyed the emphasis on photo ops under all conditions, and the group we were

with. Couldn’t ask for better pre-trip communications and planning. Great to get to

know you. Wonderful sense of humor and a very nice way of taking over ‘when

circumstances warrant.’ Your organization and flexibility are to be commended.”

Why go on a group tour with me? Because I put together and escort terrific trips! Since I believe that good preparation makes for a better travel experience, I supply a wealth of material on our destination in the weeks prior to departure. Special extras include a group T-shirt, group photo, celebrations for holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries on tour, and an annual reunion each September.

I also try very hard to give good value for your money. My tours are usually priced much lower than comparable offerings from the big-name companies since I don’t spend a lot on expensive advertising and glossy brochures, and I don’t sell through travel agents, thus no commission needs to be built into the tour price. Compare and you’ll see.

UPCOMING TOURS

Click titles below for detailed itineraries

 

Armenia & Georgia.  Armenia is a hidden jewel, one of the cradles of civilization. Its rich collection of ancient churches and monasteries is a world treasure. Armenia offers boundless landscape beauty with its mountains (including Mount Ararat of biblical fame), lakes, and waterfalls. Georgia has more great landscapes in the Caucasus Mountains, unique tower villages nearly a thousand years old, and its capital city of Tbilisi with a mixture of art deco and old castles and churches. We’ll be accompanied by Turkish photographer Mehmet Ozbalci, whose itineraries are designed specifically for photographers to help them create iconic images. (September 16-30, 2017)  Sorry, tour now closed

 

 

LOOKING AHEAD TO 2018

 

Borneo: Sabah, Sarawak, and Brunei. The world’s third largest island has long been a magnet for adventurers, explorers, travelers, and writers. With its mosaic of indigenous tribes and longhouses, an intriguing history of sultans and white rajas, the natural history of its rainforests, rivers, and wildlife (orangutans! proboscis monkeys!), Borneo has much to attract us. (April 2-20, 2018)  Only 8 spaces remaining

 

Ultimate Kenya Safari. Always my absolute favorite, especially in early summer, after the long rains, when it’s cool and green. This is the only tour I do every year, staying several days in each of the best reserves for wildlife-viewing, which means less moving from place to place, thus more game drives — which is, after all, why you’re booking an African safari. The trip includes 21 game drives from three luxury tented camps. Excellent wildlife sightings guaranteed — with usually only three to a car! (June 10-26) 

 

Nepal Odyssey. Nepal is a land of mystery and tradition, mystics and mountains, rivers and jungles. We’ll explore the ancient towns and villages of the Kathmandu Valley and spend time in hilltop villages with magical mountain views. We’ll relax in Pokhara, nestled in a valley beneath the Annapurna Massif with its sacred Fishtail Peak. And we’ll explore the Terai wilderness of Chitwan National Park in search of Royal Bengal tigers and the greater one-horned Indian rhino. (October 29-November 14)
