We recently asked you where you are most excited about traveling on your next international vacation and the results are in.
 
  • A walk on the wild side. Safari destinations like Kenya and Tanzania are on the top of travelers’ wishlists and it’s easy to see why! Exploring the incredibly diverse ecosystems in search of captivating wildlife is a refreshing change from the mundane and repetitive of the last year.

  • Enchanting Europe. The second most popular region was Europe, with its quaint villages, picturesque landscapes, and expansive history. Travelers can’t wait to sip wine along the Douro River, wander the ancient castles of Scotland and watch the sun set below the turquoise Aegean Sea. With so many unique countries and cultures to explore, Europe remains as popular as ever!
 
Entry requirements are easing across the globe as vaccines become more readily available and many destinations are open and waiting for you—putting us one step closer to boarding that plane! So grab your passport, dust off your camera, and get ready! The hardest part will be choosing where to go.

Traveling with the COVID Vaccine
 
While we don’t require the COVID-19 vaccination, all travelers must present either a COVID-19 vaccination record or a negative COVID-19 test result upon arrival in destination (in addition to any documentation required by the airline or destination). This precaution means that you can book confidently knowing you’ll be surrounded by likeminded adventurers who are taking all the necessary precautions to make the tour as safe as possible!

5 stars

Truly a five star company.
"I have travelled with FP five times, and never been disappointed with their attention to quality and detail. If you are looking for first class acomodations, varied and well organised tours, and a company that listens to you from the time of booking to your return home, then try Friendly Planet. I enjoyed my Kenya tour so much, I repeated it with a grateful daughter!"
