Gettin' Down(ey)- Awesome Safari

Posted: Mar. 10th, 2006  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Adventure: As a child you were the ultimate explorer. A regular Vasco Da Gama. There wasn't an inch of forest, swamp or terrain within a 10-block radius of your house that you hadn't explored, along with your fellow adventurers armed with wooden swords and shotguns fashioned out of aluminum foil (those were the days, right?). Even though you'd wind up in the Clink today for brandishing fake weapons, adults can still get their adrenaline fix. And I'm not talking about caffeine. Ker & Downey is a US-based tour operator that arranges real-life safaris in Africa, Egypt, the Middle East, India, New Zealand and South America, including Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and cruises to the Galapagos Islands.

Imagine exploring Nxai Pan National Park where the Kalahari Lion Kings roam free. Designed by Emmy Award-winning cinematographer and director Tim Liversedge, this special safari is based on the National Geographic film, "Roar: Lions of the Kalahari." Tim Liversedge encourages travelers to join this unforgettable safari "to see how the real 'lion king? lives." Or, experience the New Zealand "Magnetic South" tour, where adventure seekers embark on an enriching 11-Day journey of Te Wai Pounamu, New Zealand's South Island. This is a small sampling of the itineraries offered by Ker & Downey, and does not include their camps, which offer outstanding game viewing in the lush waters of the delta. So that that inner child out and go exploring (wooden swords optional).
