Turkey-Crossroads of Time and Culture
Turkey is a land of fascinating contradictions – where East meets West and ancient meets modern. Spanning two continents, it is truly the crossroads of civilization. Turkey has more Greek ruins than Greece and more Roman ruins than Italy. It is also home to many of sacred religious sites and is a place of pilgrimage for Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike. From modern Istanbul, to the traditional villages of central and eastern Turkey, to the resort towns along the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, Turkey offers something for everyone. What makes Turkey particularly special is the warm welcome and incredible hospitality that travelers receive from the Turkish people.

Exploring Southern Africa
Africa is a destination that captures the imagination of travellers like no other. Once considered the "Dark Continent" it still remains mysterious and alluring in our travel imaginations. Southern Africa is the "new kid on the block" for African tourism - and it boasts an extremely broad range of activities, experiences, and destinations. South Africa is the economic engine of the region with a high standard of living and excellent infrastructure. Tourism is a mere two decades old since the fall of Apartheid and they have taken to it like ducks to water. Capetown is the jewel in the crown, having been named the number one travel destination for 2014 by the New York Times travel magazine. The city center boasts museums and galleries, a vibrant waterfront district, great nightlife, and an eclectic culture. The city is also a hub for day-trips to Cape Point, South Africa's premier wine region, Robben Island Prison Memorial, and even game viewing parks and whale watching. Neighboring Botswana was never colonialized so its citizens are a carefree, welcoming, and happy lot. The government has taken a pro-conservation approach to its game parks and Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta are two diverse and superlative game viewing venues. Namibia to the northwest is an incredible, undiscovered gem. A desert state, she offers travellers the largest sand dunes in the world, the second largest canyon, and a stunning coastline in contrast to the classic safari experiences of its neighbors. And finally, mighty Victoria Falls, "The Smoke that Thunders" caps a visit to this amazing region. One of the seven natural wonders of the world, this incredible sight is a bucket list item for any serious traveller. Join Reid Coen of Imprint Tours on a visual tour of this fascinating corner of Africa.
