THE JG BLACK BOOK COLLECTION


Welcome to the ultimate traveler’s black book. THE JG BLACK BOOK

David R. Stoecklein David R. Stoecklein’s fascination with the ranching heritage of the American West led him to befriend, and subsequently photograph, the men and women still breathing life into the mythical figure of the cowboy. David’s passion for preserving the traditions and beliefs of the country’s honest, hardworking cowboys and cowgirls gradually earned him their respect. With that respect came an open invitation to share in their lives, and the great responsibility to honor their trust.

David is one of the accomplished master photographers in Canon’s “Explorers of Light” education and inspiration program and for four years has been recognized by the editors of True West magazine as the “Best Living Photographer of the West. The distinguished award is given each year as part of the magazine’s “Best of the West” issue. David R. Stoecklein resides in Idaho with his wife, Mary, and their three sons, Drew, Taylor, and Colby, where they split their time between their home in Sun Valley and their ranch in Mackay.

JENA GARDNER Dear Friend, Everyone travels for different reasons. Some travel to relax and recharge while some seek the excitement of new adventures. Some travel to reconnect with generations of family, others to find themselves in the exotic tastes of a foreign place. No matter the reason, what’s shared is travel’s singular ability to ignite the spirit and enrich the soul. I’m thrilled to share the 2013 edition of the JG Black Book Directory with you. Within its pages you’ll find the world’s most inspired destinations – uncommon places and adventures that define the standard for what travel at its most meaningful can be. Individual charm. Unique character. Unparalleled service. Clear vision. These are the hallmarks of our handpicked Collection. Each member artfully reflects the soul and flavor of its locale and each has shown a deep dedication to the community in which it resides. My team and I look forward to helping you discover your new favorite destinations and excursions among the unforgettable members of the JG Black Book Collection. Best wishes,

Philanthropy The Singita School of Cooking community project was launched in 2007 by the Singita Sweni head chef at the time, with the support of one of his sous chefs. They created a chef-training concept focused on unemployed young people from the local communities. The project has been extremely successful and with over 300 young people interviewed each year, only 8 candidates are accepted. As vocational skills training is very much lacking within rural communities in South Africa, Singita and the community place great value on this particular project. The training provides skills that will not only impact a student’s future but also that of their dependents and communities. MOZAMBIQUE

While every aspect of the lodge’s design was defined by the intensity of the environment and reduced to the most simplistic equation of form and function, you’ll find that nothing has been overlooked when it comes to creature comforts and rejuvenation of the spirit. Lebombo’s modern facilities include a fully equipped gym, a library, a stellar wine cellar and a swimming pool. The Singita Spa is a haven for you to unwind and feel restored, offering a range of massages, skin care and spa body treatments. WiFi is available.

Built on stilts, the lofts at Singita Lebombo Lodge mimic the nests and dens of the creatures that reside in the rocky cliffside. High above the confluence of the Sweni and N’wanetsi Rivers, with 180-degree views that stretch for miles towards the Lebombo Range, the 15 suites are quiet and meditative spaces. Each features an en suite bathroom and shower, private lounge and lookout deck. The entire camp may be booked for groups or families. Children over the age of 10 are welcome.

Top Attractions + Game Viewing + Visit the Singita School of Cooking + Singita Boutique & Gallery + Guided Bush Walk + Exclusive Concession

Activities Singita Lebombo Lodge was created as a transient witness to the land, when Singita was granted the rights to a concession in the southeast corner of Kruger National Park. Rangers say the park holds some of the highest concentrations of game on the continent. Every morning and evening, Land Rover safaris offer new excitement, from large prides of lion to abundant herds of buffalo or a solitary rhino, all seen against a backdrop of rivers, cliffs and an incredible diversity of flora. Guided bush walks and a visit to the Singita School of Cooking can also be arranged. The on-site Singita Boutique & Gallery offers art, sculpture, ethnic crafts, jewelry and safari fashions.

Dining

Singita Sweni Lodge

The menus at Sweni Lodge are as enticing as the exotic setting in which they are served. Imaginative dishes such as Springbok fillets with a fresh papino, dill and ginger relish are sublime. Scoop indigenous peppadews onto a green salad. Dunk homemade breads into African aubergine pâté. Relish South African cheeses with a glass of crisp Cape wine. Snack on roasted corn nuts and venison biltong while on a game drive. Breakfast, lunches, packed picnics and dinner fare are all made with fresh local ingredients and tailored to your taste. Connoisseurs of fine wines will want to peruse the outstanding array in Lebombo’s beautiful silo cellar.

Philanthropy The Singita School of Cooking community project was launched in 2007 by the Singita Sweni head chef at the time, with the support of one of his sous chefs. They created a chef training concept focused on unemployed young people from the local communities. The project has been extremely successful and with over 300 young people interviewed each year, only 8 candidates are accepted. As vocational skills training is very much lacking within rural communities in South Africa, Singita and the community place great value on this particular project.

Environmental education has been identified as a top priority in helping the country address the effects of climate change and the destruction of biodiversity. The Environmental Education Centre was opened on the reserve to educate young school children and to ensure that local communities experience the benefits of preserving the wildlife and natural environment of the reserves that they border, and are so encouraged to play a role in their preservation. They’ve also taken the lead in creating programs to support the local community, establishing a number of sustainable agricultural projects including vegetable gardens, bee keeping, fish farming, a piggery and a sunflower oil initiative.

Whether you desire the most luxurious beach resort on a new private island, a heritage hotel of impressive colonial grandeur or to camp under the starry skies alongside a deserted Angkor-era temple, every detail of your ABOUTAsia journey is tailor-made for you. The detail in planning is seen down to the last bite, perhaps of crispy Cambodian rice paper rolls served in a traditional village house overlooking emerald green paddy fields or sipping cocktails as your private boat is hand propelled along ancient Angkorian waterways.

Location ABOUTAsia is based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, just three miles from the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat. Travelers may fly into Phnom Penh or Siem Reap Airports, which both offer connections to the major Asian hubs. Flights from the US commonly route through Tokyo, Seoul or Hong Kong and flights through Europe connect directly to Singapore, Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur. Connections between Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam are plentiful and convenient. Increasing numbers of visitors also explore Cambodia from ocean or river cruises either as shore excursions or as an extension at the end of the cruise.

Unrivaled luxury is just one of the reasons that Micato has been named “World’s Best Safari Outfitter” by Travel + Leisure magazine a record nine times. Safari lodges enchant with such extravagances as private plunge pools and personal butlers. Africa’s best safari guides educate and amuse, their conversation as refreshing as the drinks they mix. A revolutionary “no tipping” policy permits ultimate relaxation, while a wealth of itineraries offer irresistible experiences from the celebrated savannahs of the Serengeti to the elegant delights of the Cape winelands and the ethereal beauty of the Kalahari. JG’s “Can’t Miss” Tip Safari vests aren’t just for looking the part. Those multitudes of pockets are wonderfully useful in the bush and on flights, providing convenient access to items like camera lenses, sunglasses and more without having to carry a bag.

Micato Safaris

A safari with Micato is a sumptuous adventure, sparked by wanderlust and the lure of the exotic and authentic. The fact that these safaris surpass all expectations is not surprising, considering that Micato is the nine-time winner of Travel + Leisure magazine’s coveted “World’s Best Safari Outfitter” award. T+L states, “Micato’s edge is personal warmth. The Pinto family runs their show as though entertaining well-loved, outof-town relatives.” Micato’s policy of eliminating all tipping on trips—even gratuities to tour guides, safari directors, and drivers—leaves our guests more time to savor their journeys. The Pintos’ insider access also makes impossibly exclusive experiences possible, whether it’s a private plane safari with renowned guide Mark C. Ross, dinner on the Presidential Estate in Cape Town, an archeological dig with the Leakeys, or running with Kenyan marathoners. It can all be arranged with ease. And it is not just travelers whose lives are changed – travelers visit children whose lives are changing for the better through AmericaShare, Micato’s non-profit arm that sends AIDSorphaned children to school through the generosity of travelers. Spend a few hours at a project and sponsor a child. The child’s life — as well as yours — will never be the same.

Philanthropy For 25 years, Micato-AmericaShare has made a significant difference in the lives of impoverished African families by sending thousands of African children to school and providing sustained community outreach. Micato is the two-time Condé Nast Traveler “World Savers” winner in the categories of Education and Doing It All. Initiatives include their One for One Commitment: For every safari sold, they send a child to school. As stewards of Africa’s neediest families they also operate a school sponsorship program for orphaned and vulnerable children, in addition to building libraries, classrooms, a life-changing freshwater well and establishing other dynamic projects.

Custom-Crafted Safaris Accommodations Each lodge and camp is selected as much for its evocative beauty as for its breathtaking scenery. From the classic safari decadence of the tented camps to the elegantly appointed lodges, it’s difficult to reconcile such luxury with the bush setting. Picture it: secluded tents replete with gleaming antiques and mahogany four-poster beds, with private verandahs overlooking watering holes full of wildlife; or spacious domed lodge rooms, lovingly kitted out in native wood and stone, with double-faced fireplaces for cool nights and private plunge pools for hot afternoons. There are even stunning views from the clawfooted bathtubs!

Top Attractions + Tracking Elephants by Helicopter in Botswana + Sundowner Cocktails Overlooking the Vast Plains of the Serengeti

+ A Culinary Tour of South Africa’s Cape Winelands

+ Game Viewing from a Hot-Air Balloon Floating Over the Maasai Mara

+ An Exhilarating “Flight of the Angels” Over Victoria Falls

+ Summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro or Simply Admiring It From Below

Micato’s superb Bespoke Collection offers the option for travelers to custom-design their own safaris, with the guidance of an expert Safari Specialist. There are myriad choices: private ranches, upcountry estates and intimate camps — the owners are guests’ personal hosts. Intrepid travelers might consider Micato’s camelback and walking safaris. And Starbeds! Dreams are sure to be extraordinary when sleeping in safe seclusion beneath the sky. Family safaris are meticulously designed with an eye for every generation; idyllic honeymoons are crafted with love; private jet safaris are arranged for those on the cutting edge of luxe. Micato even weaves epic adventures to farflung regions for those seeking total seclusion. A customized safari can be anything and everything you’ve ever dreamed. And Micato’s Bespoke team makes it even better….

East Africa and Southern Africa Micato invites each traveler to be a part of the family – it’s a pleasure and a hallmark. East African travelers are all invited for a meal at the home of the Pintos in Nairobi, while travelers in Southern Africa dine with the Pintos’ good friends in Cape Town. Indeed, a Micato safari is exceptionally personalized in all of their areas of expertise: Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Rwanda and Zambia’s Victoria Falls.

Though they give guests the feel, personalized attention and high-end comforts of a classic, private yacht the M/Y Grace and the M/V Evolution have an informal, relaxed charm to them. The elegant M/V Evolution, which received a full cabin upgrade in 2012, accommodates up to 32 passengers in three suites, nine premium staterooms and four deluxe staterooms.

Location

The small-group travel ensures a more intimate interaction with the Galápagos, the way Darwin experienced the islands. Itineraries keep guests far away from large ships and crowds. Go sea kayaking in rich mangroves or snorkeling in quiet coves; play with sea lions on pristine beaches or hike to inland lagoons teeming with flamingoes. Marvel at sculpted lava flows. Watch birds, turtles, penguins and iguanas frolic. Land excursions in Ecuador and Peru — from the Andean Highlands to the Amazon Rainforest — add another dimension to this amazing journey.

Quasar Expeditions operates smallship cruises to the Galápagos Islands, located 600 miles west of the Ecuadorian mainland in the Pacific Ocean, as well as land excursions in Ecuador and Peru.

Philanthropy Volcanoes Safaris has developed a responsible and sensitive ecotourism vision. The company believes that carefully controlled ecotourism is essential to the survival of the great apes and the conservation of their habitats; local people need to earn a livelihood if they are to appreciate the importance of protecting both man’s nearest cousins and their habitats. The Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust, a separate non-profit entity, works to support communities and conservation projects in Uganda and Rwanda. A portion of the proceeds from each safari is donated to the Trust, so that tourism contributes to this vital work.

Philanthropy Volcanoes Safaris has developed a responsible and sensitive ecotourism vision. The company believes that carefully controlled ecotourism is essential to the survival of the great apes and the conservation of their habitats; local people need to earn a livelihood if they are to appreciate the importance of protecting both man’s nearest cousins and their habitats. The Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust, a separate non-profit entity, works to support communities and conservation projects in Uganda and Rwanda. A portion of the proceeds from each safari is donated to the Trust, so that tourism contributes to this vital work.
