Game drives, though incredible, can also become incredibly sedentary. For those adventurers on the go, here’s how to break it up:

-Play tennis in the bush at Singita Sabora. Then shoot archery and visit an anti-poaching observation point with Singita Explore.

-Fly in an open cockpit biplane in Kenya. A former crop-dusting pilot, local aviator Will Craig takes two passengers over forests, herds of game, and ravines otherwise virtually inaccessible.

-Take a Wild Overnight Hiking Safari with Lewa Wilderness, with local Maasai moran as guides and camels as support.

– Mountain bike through the bush and move camp each night.

Run with the Maasai Warriors. Upon request (and conditions allowing), run with Maasai warriors and local staff at Alex Walker’s Serian Camp in Kenya. With a support vehicle trailing for safety, pass hyena, elephant, and giraffe on foot—a serious adrenaline fix!

JETSET EXPERIENCES: Retreat to Southern California


Dr. Seuss, that wise old sage, said it best:
“The more that you read, the more things that you’ll know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

At Jet Set World Travel, learning is the cornerstone of our ethos. We are committed to intimately learning about you, personally experiencing a destination, and actively sharing our findings with one another. Our collective intelligence is something we invest in, and it’s why people invest in us.

Since the ‘Jet Set Girls’ live and work around the world, we gather together annually to educate – and to learn from – one another. This year we escaped January’s wintry mix to experience southern California and enjoyed world-class accommodation at Rancho Valencia (recently voted #1 Hotel in the U.S. by U.S. News) and their robust fitness offering, replete with cardio tennis instruction from two-time US Open Champion Robin White! We also learned “hands on” about Omni’s venture into leisure at the newly acquired La Costa Resort & Spa before toasting the weekend – and new year – from the 32nd floor of our Omni Suite overlooking all of downtown San Diego.

One of my happiest hours was discovering I do indeed like Pale Ale, just with lighter hops, during our private tour and tasting at Ballast Point. But in the end, the most poignant lesson is gratitude. I am blessed for the incredible women I work with and the extraordinary friendships we share around the world.

Until we reconvene in Jamaica in 2016, we’ll keep on practicing (and sampling) what we preach!

Travel is the ultimate education. Please contact a member of our team to begin the collaboration today!
