Dear ,

This year, our new expeditions will have us venturing far and wide—from Colombia to Ethiopia to the far-flung islands of the South Pacific. The latest National Geographic Expeditions catalog will be arriving in homes shortly, full of inspiring trips led by our top experts all over the world. In the meantime, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of the unique experiences we have in store.

Wildlife enthusiasts can join a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in India, tracking Bengal tigers and one-horned rhinos in three national parks with conservation biologist Krithi Karanth or wildlife photographer and filmmaker Sandesh Kadur. We’ll discover Colombia's charming colonial cities, delve into the distinctive culture of Eastern Cuba, and encounter the fascinating peoples of Ethiopia’s Omo Valley. Families will find a host of new trips to places like Iceland, Tanzania, Peru, and China that are designed for travelers of all ages and incorporate a unique kid-to-kid connection with local youths. The new National Geographic Orion plies the seas from Australia’s wild Kimberley coast to Easter Island on a variety of voyages that explore island cultures and the undersea. And we’ve added four new photography expeditions, including the Silk Road and India by Rail.
