Malawi – Lake Malawi is one of the world’s best fresh water diving destinations. Still under the tourist radar, this tiny nation dubbed the “Heart of Africa” also enables visitors to see the Big Five on safari while avoiding crowds.
Paracas, Peru – Desert meets beach and mystery in southern Peru. Charter a plane to explore the Nazca Lines, the famous ancient desert geoglyphs. Then savor dinner in a desert tent while being lulled by ocean waves in the distance.
