Outside GO's 8 Unforgettable Summer Escapes

 

Summer is on the horizon, and that means it's time to make a plan

 
 
 

Even though snow is still falling in some parts of North America, winter's chill is beginning to thaw. Promises of spring are everywhere we look; in blooming buds, slightly longer days, and in the sun's incrementally warmer rays. Before we know it, summer will be in full swing. If you want to do more than camp out at the local park this upcoming season, book one of our eight epic summer adventures. Safari in far-flung locales like Kenya and South Africa where the temperatures are perfect for exploring, or head north to take advantage of warmer times in Canada and Alaska. You can even join us in Europe on one of our new trips to Scotland or Ireland. Take a look, get inspired, and remember that wherever you go, it will be a summer to remember.

HOME SWEET BUSH HOME

KENYA: Nairobi National Park and the Masai Mara

 

$7,450 | 10 DAYS

 
 

In 1993, the folks behind Outside GO founded the Bush Homes of East Africa; an association of private ranches, intimate lodges, luxury tented camps, coastal retreats, bush camps, and small upcountry estates in Kenya. These amazing historic properties were built in the 19th century, when Europeans first began settling in Africa, and are located on private land and in conservation areas near or adjacent to famous national parks and game reserves. Today, a few of the descendents of those who made this beautiful, fertile land their home still live here—and they’ve opened their doors to us.  READ MORE...

Founders of the Ultima Thule Lodge, the Claus family has a backyard composed of 13 million acres of the most remote wilderness on earth. This land is in their hearts and running in their blood.
