[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ew Delhi: As Indian travellers look for rich travel experiences in a burgeoning luxury travel industry, National Geographic Expeditions launches in India. Urging people to gather authentic experiences and explore the unknown, National Geographic Expeditions will help Indian travellers gain access to people and places, get enriched by the knowledge of National Geographic experts and guides. Furthermore, when you travel with National Geographic Expeditions you give back since proceeds from National Geographic Expeditions’ travel programs support the National Geographic Society’s efforts to increase global understanding through exploration, education and scientific research. Gary Knell, Chairman of National Geographic Partners announced the launch of National Geographic Expeditions as a part of his tour of India and unveiled the India specific website – www.natgeoexpeditions.in
Imagine observing lions on the prowl in the Serengeti with a wildlife biologist, examining ancient ruins in Peru with an archaeologist, or shooting images in Italy alongside a National Geographic photographer. From photography to history to marine biology, our National Geographic experts offer enriching expedition experiences through fascinating presentations and informal discussions. The customised trips have been offered globally and will now be available to discerning Indian travellers in local currency with completely localized fulfilment and servicing for the travel bookings. Creating authentic and memorable experiences, the National Geographic Expeditions trips are designed to reflect travellers’ broad spectrum of interests and enable truly experiential travel.
National Geographic Expeditions was founded to support the National Geographic Society’s 131-year mission to inspire people to care about the planet by providing meaningful opportunities to explore it. Each expedition invites travellers to explore and encounter the wonders of the world up close, in depth, right at the source, and be transformed by the experience.
Commenting on the National Geographic Expeditions launch in India, Gary Knell, Chairman of National Geographic & Partners said, “National Geographic Expeditions span the globe on all seven continents and are designed to reflect our travellers’ broad spectrum of interests. We are delighted to bring National Geographic Expeditions to free-spirited Indian travellers and are looking forward to providing them with authentic travel experiences. The itineraries designed under the program will help travellers immerse themselves in the heart of the places and cultures they visit. Moreover, our Expeditions will be accompanied by a National Geographic expert- including photographers, explorers and writers- for an unrivalled travel experience. We are hopeful that with this proposition, we will be able to cater to people who believe in not just visiting a destination but truly exploring.”
