Hotel Reviews

If it isn’t obvious, we travel a lot. This blog started with the goal of showing working professionals how they could explore the world on a limited amount of vacation time. One of our core strategies is picking hotels that deliver incredible experiences and are in great locations. This collection of hotel reviews fits that bill. Most of these properties would be considered up-market or luxury in their respective destinations.

Hotel reviews like these are a great way to virtually experience a property and decide if it is right for you. Vacation travel is an investment in your happiness and you want to make sure you are getting good value for money. These hotel reviews help you with that decision.

Experience Africa on Foot – A Safari Adventure

Long before the days of Land Rovers with padded seats, Africa was experienced on foot. Men would hike for days or weeks deep into “The Bush” for close encounters with fearsome beasts. The animals of the Big Five received that honor because they were the most dangerous to hunt on foot. Today, by leaving the safety of the vehicle and experiencing Africa on foot, we can replicate some of that experience and appreciate the bush the way it was meant to be – up close and personal, with elements of thrill and danger.
