Escape the long winter blues by checking out our top four vacation packages of the week:

1. Wildest Dreams: Zanzibar & The Selous Game Reserve

Wildest Dreams

Imagine 50,000 km of wilderness, where no human habitation or structures are permitted. Now imagine it in the south of Tanzania, where elephants, rhinos, hippopotamus, lions, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras and crocodiles roam in larger numbers than any other reserve or national park. You’re imagining The Selous, and you don’t have to just imagine it anymore. This 10-day package begins with four full days inside the reserve with a National Geographic safari guide, moves on to a sunset cruise on the Rufiji River and finishes with a VIP experience on the beach in Zanzibar, Africa’s most famous resort. There you can sail, snorkel and watch the dolphins play in the waves.

2. Journey into the Amazon: Peru and Machu Picchu

Journey into the Amazon

If you are seeking a fulfilling, eye-opening and spiritual adventure, this 10-day journey into the heart of Peru will broaden your mind. Culminating in a hike to the mysterious Incan city of Machu Picchu, this trip includes an overnight in the rainforest, a river cruise in the Amazon basin, a canoe ride on a crystal clear oxbow lake. Observe Amazonian flora and fauna up close, including giant river otter, red howler monkeys, macaws, anacondas, turtles and caimans – and that’s just during the day.
