Unique, Once-in-a-Lifetime Trips

Have you made your bucket list of to-die-for-vacations? If you haven't given any thought to the places you need to see in your lifetime, then now's the time to start. If you wait until the last minute before you start planning your trip each year, then you can't hammer down the fine points of such a vacation. Nobody wants that, so it's time to surf a website with the finest hotels & resorts on the planet for vacation specials on a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

African Safaris
If you decide to take your African vacation to the max, you can head into the misty mountains and see gorillas (the silver-backed kind!) in their natural habitat. While you have to be able to hike up and down in thin oxygen and on a winding path, when you see peaceful gorillas munching on tiny berries, you'll capture the photo of a lifetime.

Your Lodging: In the case of a gorilla trek, your lodging will depend on which type of gorilla you are tracking. We recommend staying in a luxury lodge before you head out on your trip into the bush, where you're likely to camp the next day.

Fossil-Hunting in Kenya
Head to Kenya and learn about travelers like the Leakeys, who studied the roots of civilization. Find out about research areas that feature amazing 3.5-million-year-old fossils only recently discovered. You'll also get a chance to explore the earth on your own, and who knows what you could find?

Your Lodging: The The Mount Kenya Safari Club has 100 acres of land and a stunning resort hotel, and on your free time, be sure to indulge in pastimes like the bowling green and croquet.

Loire Valley Cycling Tours
If you're the face-paced type, then a cycling tour is what you need. Take to the roads in the land of the Tour de France and discover the Loire Valley. Tourists can stay in stunning estates with rich historys after spending the day zipping by sunflower fields and rolling green scenery. At night, of course, one can take advantage of legendary French wine and fine, healthy meals.

Your Lodging: To balance out your trip to the Loire Valley, visit Reims and stay in the the Chateau les Crayeres. A 20-room inn offers 400 champagnes to try, which will help you relax after rattling your bones on the roads.

Take a Camel Caravan Across the Desert
If you want to see older-than-old relics from civilizations past, then you certainly need to head to the Middle East. After seeing incredible spots like Petra in Jordan, one can head across the magnificent sand dunes on a camel, complete with a local guide who can wrangle it if need be. Don't forget to dress in light, cool layers!

Your Lodging: When staying in Jordan, book a night at Evason Ma'In Hot Springs & Six Senses Spa, which features hot springs, waterfalls, spa services, and Exclusive Complimentary Perks.

Even if you have your bucket list, it can't be set in stone. Why not add a once-in-a-lifetime trip to it right now?
