Zegrahm Expeditions, one of the world leaders in small-ship cruising and overland adventures, has announced the company’s 2014 land-based expedition schedule. Zegrahm’s overland adventures accommodate 12 to 24 travelers per expedition, and the itineraries feature authentic accommodations, including luxury tented camps, jungle lodges and river boats, and transportation combinations, including elephant-back, 4x4 vehicle, dogsled and snowmobile.
In 2014, the company is offering 18 itineraries in Asia, Africa, the Arctic, and South America, including two brand-new expeditions: Myanmar Revealed: Life Along the Irrawaddy River and the wildlife- focused Natural Wonders of Sri Lanka. The former is slated from January 2 to16, 2014, and it brings travelers to the less-visited villages along the Irrawaddy, Kaladan, and Lay Myo Rivers. Meanwhile, the latter is from February 27 to March 16, 2014.
There are other itineraries featured.
Lapland: Home of the Sami People from March 15 to 29, 2014, which focuses on the landscape of this little-known region of Northern Norway, to be explored by boat, snowmobile, reindeer sleigh, snowshoes, cross-country skis, and even with a dogsled. There will also be opportunities to meet the indigenous Sami, semi-nomadic reindeer herders whose travels coincide with Zegrahm’s visit.
Uganda: A Primate Paradise is from July 18 to 31, 2014, and it will allow travelers to see mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, plus cruise to the base of Murchison Falls and hike through Kibale National Park in search of resident wildlife with Zegrahm field director, Jonathan Rossouw, author of “Where to Watch Birds in Uganda”.
Meanwhile, Bolivia: Andes to the Amazon is scheduled from October 10 to 25, 2014, and it will allow tourists to cruise Lake Titicaca, South America’s largest lake, by luxurious catamaran; and explore the wilderness of Madidi National Park, home to 800 species of birds.
