Safari: Experience the Natural Beauty of Africa
For many travelers, going on a safari is a dream trip, an opportunity to see Africa’s unspoiled natural beauty and to view wildlife like lions, elephants, and giraffes in their natural habitat.

The East African nations of Kenya and Tanzania are among the most popular safari destinations, with travelers drawn to one of the world’s most remarkable sights – the Great Migration. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, gazelles, and zebras make the trek from the plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania to the grasslands of Kenya’s Masai Mara in search of food and water. While the Great Migration usually peaks in July and August, going in October will allow you to bypass the crowds, and you’ll still see plenty of action.

You’ll hear the words “tent” and “camp” used when it comes to accommodations. While the level of comfort on a safari can range from rustic to ultra-luxury, remember that most will have running water, full bathrooms, electricity, and modern conveniences, including Wi-Fi. Just keep in mind that some remote camps may run on generators that are turned off at night and during the day when you’re out.

A safari can be a great family vacation or group trip, but travel experts recommend that parents bring children in their teens or older. So if you’re thinking about including the kids, consider whether they’re old enough to handle the experience.

Finally, remember that nature doesn’t always operate on a schedule. When you’re looking for wildlife, be patient. Have your camera ready at all times, and while you’re waiting, take in the gorgeous scenery.

It’s a great year to travel, and if any of us can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to call.

Sincerely,
Terry W. Brennan
President • Williamsburg Travel Leaders


Hazy Summer Days at Biltmore
Fall is right around the bend, but there are still plenty of days left to enjoy summer at Biltmore. Try taking a trip to catch one of the great outdoor concerts on the South Terrace of Biltmore House. Turn your Labor Day weekend into a family getaway to enjoy a rustic dinner celebration at Antler Hill Barn on the estate. If you haven’t had the chance yet, take a stroll through the garden to catch the captivating works of Chihuly. To access exclusive Alliance rates, log on to the NAPC website and visit the Discounts page under “Member Central.”

Chihuly at Biltmore
Through Sunday, October 7

Chihuly at Biltmore showcases breathtaking large-scale glass sculptures in an equally breathtaking setting: the historic gardens of America’s Largest Home. The vibrant colors and organic shapes that distinguish Chihuly’s dramatic creations are captivating when presented within Biltmore’s artfully designed landscapes. The sculptures’ placement in the gardens offers an intriguing juxtaposition of the master works of two consummate artists—premier American artist Dale Chihuly and Biltmore landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted.

Labor Day Celebration Dinner at Antler Hill Barn
Join us at Antler Hill Barn for a fun and delicious dinner buffet event to celebrate summer’s finale with a blue ribbon celebration inspired by Biltmore’s annual fall fair. Enjoy live music, games for all ages, Biltmore wine, select beers, and non-alcoholic beverages. Your evening ends with a dramatic fireworks display on estate grounds.
