If you travel on one of IE's Kenya and Tanzania safaris during April or May, bring an extra pair of shoes for inside your tent at our mobile tented camp. Flip-flops are perfect! Shoes can get muddy in East Africa's green season and a pair of shoes for inside help keep mud out of your tent. So, you might be asking, why travel on an East Africa safari during the green season if it is muddy? Easy! During the green season, safaris are less expensive AND the parks and reserves are less crowded!

As part of International Expeditions' people-to-people Cuba travel experience, guests visit the eco-community of Las Terrazas, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. While in the planned community, we make a stop at Cafe de Maria for a cup of locally grown coffee. From the outdoor terrace, guests can gaze on the Cuban countryside while sipping cappuccino with a famous face or a signature iced coffee drink.

Everyone at IE loves hearing feedback from our guests! And while many travelers know that they'll love the wildlife and landscapes they encounter on one of our adventures, it is most often the staff who earns the highest praise. So it was no surprise when Februrary 22, 2013 Galapagos Islands cruise guests Mary & Giff Ewing shared this note about how much they were touched by the naturalist guides and crew aboard the M/V Evolution.
