Custom Itineraries: Travel Tailored to Your Unique Interests
Updated: Nov 19
If you love exploring new destinations, but hate the limitations and crowding of a traditional group tour, consider planning a custom vacation itinerary for your next adventure.
Unlike set-schedule group trips, custom land tours can be designed around your unique interests.
Do you want to study plants in the Amazon with an award-winning botanist?
How about a history-themed tour of notable World War II locations around Europe?
Or an Italian culinary trip designed to teach you everything you’ll ever need to learn to cook pasta, gnocchi, and minestrone just like Nonna used to make?
When you plan travel with Cultivating Connections Travel Planners, we can create an itinerary that not only shows you the highlights of a location, but that also gives you plenty of access to behind-the-scenes travel gems that people on those crowded buses never get to see!
Here are some of our favorite customized land tour partners.
Hills of Africa
If you want to see the natural wonders and incredible beauty of Africa with a travel company that knows the continent inside and out, plan your trip with Hills of Africa. With customizable itineraries in Botswana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, Hills of Africa offers opportunities to experience Africa at a deep and meaningful level.
A trip with Hills of Africa might consist of getting to know a family of elephants in Botswana, experiencing the magnificent rush of water at Victoria Falls, and enjoying some of the world’s best food and wine in Cape Town. The company employs some of the best guides in the industry, many of whom have grown up in the communities you’ll visit. Their expert knowledge allows travelers to go beyond seeing Africa as a tourist. Visitors leave with a sense of community and warmth from their magical experience on the continent.
As a socially-conscious company, Hills of Africa also ensures that a percentage of dollars spent goes back into the local communities to improve their economies.
