We consider ourselves lucky at Craft Travel to have well-traveled, adventurous clients who come back year after year challenging us to up the ante. One client who always keeps it entertaining for us is Paul, a globetrotting architect from New York who has a passion for all things off the beaten path. On his most recent trip with us, he and his wife Sandi explored the best of Argentina and Chile, heading from Mendoza to Buenos Aires, and then south to Patagonia, crossing from El Calafate on the Argentinean side into Chilean Torres del Paine. He enjoyed the journey so much that a local New York newspaper featured his incredible account of the trip.
In February of 2019 we had the opportunity to take a week long self-drive safari through the beautiful country of Namibia. Our nights were spent in the 5-star lodges while our days were full of landscape, wildlife and unbelievable meals & service. Driving from lodge to lodge we covered almost 3,452 kilometers (2,100 miles) most of which was a mix of sand and dirt roads. As you can see from the video above, Namibia is full of changing landscapes from mountains to deserts and everything in between. We hope you enjoy this this video as much as we enjoyed shooting it!
Some may know the state of Minas Gerais for its famous cheese, while others may have heard of (or even traveled to) its enchanting colonial cities like Ouro Preto and Congonhas, both of which are UNESCO Heritage Sites. What is perhaps lesser known outside of Brazil however is the natural beauty this region possesses. The Cerrado of Minas Gerais is visually breathtaking, providing the perfect respite from city life and backdrop for the ultimate encounter with nature. The smell of freshly brewed coffee, bread just out of the oven, the feeling of being at home defines mineiros and their traditions. Now thanks to the recent renovations of the lodge at Reserva do Ibitipoca, you can experience the mineiro charm for yourself.
