Voyage deep into Kakadu National Park to see the world’s oldest paintings at Nouralangie rock. Sit down for kava with a Fijian tribal king or home made beer with a Zulu witch-doctor. Meet modern Maori carvers applying ancient techniques to contemporary topics. Stand quiet and humbled in the prison cell that once held Nelson Mandela.  Journey to a local vanilla farm in Taha’a to learn about how 95% of the world’s vanilla is made.  Or travel to a local Masai village in Kenya to meet the children.
