At Down Under Endeavours, we specialize in the exotic destinations of the South Pacific and South Africa. However, our own excursions also take us to many different places around the world. Fueled by these adventures, and the requests by our clients, our World Travel section features areas we have personally traveled as well as locales our travelers have visited since meeting us. When looking for a trip we understand recommendations from friends, family, and coworkers weigh heavily in the decision process. In fact, many of our travelers become friends and even mates, not only throughout the planning process, but well into post travel celebrations. Down Under Endeavours handcrafts luxury vacations designed around your wants, needs, timeframe and budget. To get a taste of what’s possible, check out these sample itineraries. Have a look, see what catches your eye, then chat to the Down Under team to custom-create your itinerary. Occasionally, we offer traditional “package” vacations focused on a special event. But those are the exception, not the rule. The itinerary of your trip of your lifetime will be unique to you.
Gear up for the adventure of a lifetime... it’s time to visit the Amazon! You’ll have two days in the bustling port city of Manaus at the confluence of the two great rivers that form the Amazon. Then six days on a private boat to get into the heart of the jungle, with have plenty of time for snoozing in a hammock as well as adventurous excursions off the boat. A private expert Amazon guide (our mate, Herman), a private chef, and a ship captain will give you the chance to see pink dolphins, caymans (Amazon alligators), piranhas (some in the water and some on your menu), anacondas, jaguars, sloths, brightly-colored toucans, “bird eater” tarantulas and plenty of other flora and fauna. The itinerary is yours, so you can relax as much as you like or spend your time out hiking and exploring. The following itinerary is just a guide. Note that there are very few luxurious options here, with old-model transfer vehicles, humble basic hotels in the city center, and a boat where you’ll be shocked to find air conditioning in your cabin. For something well off the beaten tourist path, visit the Brazilian Amazon, caipirinha cocktail in hand!
This special South Africa and Seychelles luxury vacation was planned for a couple from New York who were celebrating a wedding anniversary and a cancer free anniversary. We started them exploring the vibrant city of Cape Town and then sent them to the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve on the border of the Kruger National Park, the ultimate in luxury safari and private game viewing opportunities. After 3 days on a South Africa safari, they traveled to their extraordinary island destination, Mahe in the Seychelles. They spent a week relaxing on the sandy white beaches and swimming in the warm Indian Ocean, and being pampered, before returning home they felt refreshed and rejuvenated. Suggested Length: 15 Days
