For people who love to travel, the covid pandemic grounded us literally and figuratively, and it’s given us an opportunity to revisit and appreciate some of our favorite travel moments. Any type of travel is an investment in an experience, and we believe the memories made on safari are particularly vivid for years to come.
As we think about how international travel will be changed by the pandemic, we’re reminded of our early days visiting Africa. Not only was the experience much less luxurious, the entry requirements were complicated, there were more required vaccines and immunizations, and moving around was much less efficient and straightforward.
Travelers had to be more intrepid, but, with good advice and great partners on the ground, we could find a way. Next Adventure founders Dick and Louise McGowan certainly found a way, and they took their daughter, Next Adventure’s current CEO Kili McGowan along for the ride.
We hope you enjoy these images of Kili’s first adventures, and we hope you’re inspired to get out there and make some memories when the time is right for you.
