THE CULTURED TRAVELER
December 8, 2015
“If there were one more thing I could do, it would be to go on safari once again” – Karen Blixen
I’m posting today to share an amazing travel opportunity for anyone who has ever dreamed of going on safari in the most luxurious way imaginable.
Before I tell you about it, I suppose I should also state for the record – as I’ve seen on other blogs – that there is no incentive for me to give you this information. (“Give” is the operative word, as I will not personally benefit in any way should you decide to indulge yourself in this trip of a lifetime. Consider it my holiday “gift” to you.)
Now that we have that piece of non-business out of the way, you may recall that, in an earlier post, I told you all about my awesome travel agents who book all of my cruises. I’ve developed an excellent relationship with the same agents, Nada and Monika, for over 10 years now, and they have delivered flawless service each and every time.
The company is Tully Luxury Travel, founded in 1987 by its extraordinary CEO Mary Jean Tully. To give you an example about how successful the company is, Mary Jean likes to say that: “The very first employee I hired 27 years ago is still with us today. I believe this speaks volumes about the kind of company we are.”
AAC CPA and I had the pleasure of having dinner with Mary Jean some years ago and, not only is she a delightful person and wonderful company but, as importantly, totally enthusiastic about all things travel.
Another thing about Mary Jean is that she is an avid conservationist and passionate about the protection of wildlife in Africa, where poaching poses an urgent threat to elephants, rhinos, and big cats. “Pay it forward” is her favorite expression.
“If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa.” – John Hemingway, African Journeys
All of which brings me to some exciting news: On August 1, 2016, you can join Mary Jean as she hosts a “Journey to Africa”, with visits to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. This adventure will be limited to just 12 guests, and you will have the exclusive use of each reserve during your stay and will fly privately between each camp.
Every element of this trip has been carefully and thoughtfully planned for your enjoyment, and you will be living a very luxurious 14 days during your time in Africa. Mary Jean has been to Africa on many occasions and she has forged some great relationships there, through which you will benefit.

Have a glance at the trip’s brochure to get an idea of what is in store for you:
Should you decide that you want more information or have any questions, I encourage you to get in touch with my pal, Nada:
She will be happy to speak with you and to answer all of your questions pertaining to this or any other trip in which you might be interested. As you may already know, Tully Luxury Travel books more cruises on Crystal Cruises vessels than any other company so, if you’re contemplating that kind of trip, you will also have gone to the right place.
If we hadn’t already planned all of our 2016 travel, we would be taking a very serious look at this fantasy trip.
