National Geographic Expeditions and G Adventures are continuing to grow their joint travel programme, National Geographic Journeys, with new destinations and itineraries.
Starting in 2018, the National Geographic Journeys collection of 83 tours will include the Okavango Wilderness Project in Botswana, time with a nomadic family in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, and Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve in Southern Tanzania.
Nancy Schumacher, head of travel and tour operations at National Geographic, said: “These tours combine travelling for fun with travelling for good, and they have a strong appeal as people become increasingly conscious about the impact of their holiday choices.
“We’ve collaborated closely with G Adventures to design enhanced experiences and capture National Geographic’s long history of exploration and discovery. When travellers go on our trips, they help support the work of our explorers and scientists, as a portion of our proceeds go directly to the non-profit National Geographic Society.”
Bruce Poon Tip, G Adventures’ founder, added: “Travel agents and customers alike have been enthusiastic about our National Geographic Journeys trips this past year, using words like ‘amazing,’ ‘knowledgeable’ and ‘fun’ to describe their adventures.
“That positive feedback, along with encouraging growth in our sales, are what inspired us to expand our offerings to these new destinations. We can’t wait to introduce people to even more life-changing experiences together in 2018.”
