There are certain travel destinations that are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities; experiences and destinations that will change your life forever. These destinations will rock you at your core and completely change how you see the world. These destinations inspire, stimulate, and rouse our mind, body, and soul. Here are our top 6 bucket-list ideas for the holiday of a lifetime.

  1. Experience Mother Nature on a South African Safari
  2. There is nothing more thrilling in life than seeing animals in the wild. Picture waking up before dawn, hopping in a safari truck, and driving through the wild, in search of the big five: lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhinoceros. Sitting next to these animals of art is a completely life-changing, mind-altering experience.

    We recommend visiting Kruger National Park in South Africa, where there are no fences on the reserve and animals can run free. Watching animals in their natural habitat is an experience that is completely unrivaled. This trip appeals to everyone – young and old, couples and singles, and especially families.

  3. Go Back in Time in Istanbul
  4. As Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “If the world were one country, then Istanbul would be its capital.” A multi-layered and multifaceted city, to travel to Istanbul is to travel into worlds past. Perfect for history buffs, feast your eyes on great sights such as the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and the Grand Bazaar, all exquisite works of architecture, some dating back to the B.C. years.

    We recommend staying in the Old City so that you can fully immerse yourself in the history of Istanbul.

  5. Stay in an Over-water Bungalow
  6. Imagine waking up over crystal clear waters, the sun shining in through your canopy bed, beckoning you to go outside and enjoy the splendors of nature. Staying in an over-water bungalow is an absolute must-experience trip. These over-water bungalows are built on stilts overlooking an alluring azure ocean, plunging you into paradise. An over-water bungalow is the perfect place to completely unplug and surf into serenity. Over-water bungalows can be found in the Maldives, the South Pacific, as well as Southeast Asia.

  7. Own an Elephant in Thailand
  8. Drive just two hours outside of Chiang Mai, and you’ll find yourself in a jungle filled with majestic monolithic elephants that are yours to look after for the day. At Patara Elephant Farm, you become one with the elephant. Your day begins by meeting your elephant and getting to know one another.

    First, you feed the elephant, gaining its love through a feast of bananas and sugar cane. Next, its time to take a dip in the water with your playful elephant. As you pour water on him or her and wash the elephant, you create an unspoken bond of trust and love. After you’ve fed and cleaned your elephant, it’s time to ride your elephant bareback.

    While these colossus creatures may look intimidating, they are sensitive gentle giants; ready to touch your soul in a way you didn’t know imaginable. Not only is this an incredible physical experience, but the experience taps into an emotional, introspective part of the mind and body that you may not have known existed. You leave Patara Elephant Farm not only with a new friend, but with a new outlook on life.

  9. Sail the Croatian Islands on The Yacht Week
  10. Imagine sailing the azure Adriatic Sea with a handful of your best friends. Then throw in 50+ other sailboats sailing next to you, ready to pull into any party cove, tie up, and enjoy dance parties in the waters of Croatia. You have officially entered The Yacht Week, a place that is “nothing like the real world.”

    Your days consist of sailing from island to island, imbibing in delicious cocktails, and dancing the night away at The Yacht Week sponsored parties. The Yacht Week is the perfect place to meet friends from all over the world that converge in Croatia for a week of fun and sun.
    Bucket list trip: The Yacht Week.

  11. Swim in the Devil's Pool
  12. Just as the name sounds, the Devil’s Pool is a place that only Satan could have crafted. Located 108m up above the Zambezi River, this Zambian swim spot is not for the faint of heart. After swimming across the Zambezi river, as the water rushes hundreds of feet down to a violent river, you have to trust your guide, the current, and your heart to take you to safety. Once in this nature-made pool on Livingstone Island, you can peak your head out over the grandeur of Victoria Falls from 108m up above. It is the best viewing spot of these gigantic waterfalls and the number one adrenaline rush in the world.
