Get lost on Vacation

Remote Destinations for Adventurous Travelers

Somewhere beyond “away from it all” and “off the beaten path” lie destinations so remote and exclusive most could never locate them.

However, sophisticated travelers know that these off-the-radar destinations are worth the trip. As the world becomes a small and smaller place, adventurous travelers are searching for more remote destinations to get lost on vacation.

These mysterious locations offer not only peace and quiet, but exotic culture, spectacular scenery, blessed privacy and the divine option of relaxing where many never trek. So tell the office that your Blackberry is off, because no one will be able to reach you in the world's most remote destinations.

During South Africa's warm, dry summers and sunny winters, visitors can tour the Cango Ostrich Farm and Cango Caves, or view endangered species at the Cango Wildlife Ranch.
