Whether it’s grammar school, high school or college, graduation is a significant achievement that merits recognition. Some might even argue that parents and grandparents take more pride in the milestone than the graduates themselves. But, whatever the age, one of the best ways to honor both the student and continue their education is with a once-in-a- lifetime travel experience. In celebration of graduates everywhere, Cox & Kings is highlighting a few awe-inspiring journeys. From wildlife-rich safaris in South Africa to a South American adventure, each trip is sure to create life-long memories for all.
FOR THE GRAMMAR SCHOOL GRADS… SOUTH AFRICA FAMILY DISCOVERY
Immerse the whole family in the wonders of one of the most diverse countries in the world, South Africa. Discover scenic Cape Town and the natural beauty of the landscapes and wildlife of the Cape Peninsula. The country offers something for each generation – from playing soccer with South African children, visiting a local craft market, spotting breaching whales, or just relaxing on a beautiful beach. Explore Africa’s child-friendly, and malaria-free, Madikwe Game Reserve in search of lion, elephant, leopard and more. Rates start at $5,880 per person based on a group of four.
FOR THE HIGHSCHOOL GRADS… PERU & GALAPAGOS: Legends & Explorations
Embark on an adventure sure to reach the most device-addicted tween or teen: a journey to unlock the secrets of the ancient Inca, Peru’s colonial heritage and the natural laboratory of the Galápagos Islands. On this South American adventure, families will explore churches and mansions built by Spanish conquistadors and the imposing Inca fortresses, plus the extraordinary Lost City of Machu Picchu.
Then they will hop aboard an expedition ship to marvel at the endemic flora and fauna of the remote, volcanic Galápagos Islands. On shore, there is an open air science class, while searching for the legendary blue-footed booby, the prehistoric marine iguana, the playful sea lions and of course, Darwin’s finches, the bird that lead to him to formulating his principle of natural selection. Rates start at $9,475 per person based on a group of four.
FOR THE COLLEGE GRADS… ESCORTED DISCOVERY GROUP JOURNEYS
Escorted Discovery Group Journeys offer the best of ‘must-see’ destinations and less-visited, exotic locales, with set departures dates, local guides, and small group sizes – always less than 25 travelers. It’s the perfect first step for grads on their way into the real world, all within the comfort and camaraderie of like-minded travelers. Join a Grand Tour of Northern India and explore fascinating heritage and the resplendent Taj Mahal or sightsee through the Splendors of Jordan to view the city’s stunning landscapes and biblical sites. Rates start at $2,000 per person and are dependent on destination, dates, and number of travelers.
