EXPLORE THE WORLD THE LAKANI WAY The Luxury of Choice

Pre-Designed Travel Experiences

It’s your vacation, your valuable time, and you deserve to spend it just as you like. When you travel with Lakani World Tours you enjoy exploring the world in luxury and comfort – in your own way. Choose a Pre-Designed or Custom-Made Independent Travel Experience if you want to choose your own dates and your travel companions. Or, if you would like to travel with an intimate group of like-minded travelers with all-inclusive meals, gratuities, and a Lakani Tour Manager, join a Lakani Small Group Tour. Lakani Private Jet Journeys are also an option for the ultimate touring experience.

We offer you a selection of destinations with remarkable experiences in history, culture, and scenic beauty. The itineraries have been created to allow you optimal sightseeing, superb accommodations, and excellent pricing. Travel individually, as a couple, with family, or as a group of friends. Just choose your own dates, and we’ll do the rest. The wonderful benefit of traveling independently is the flexibility it allows. Interested in things you see along the way and want to make a stop? Or you need longer to read every sign in the museum? Your private knowledgeable guide and driver will do everything to make sure your experience meets and even exceeds your expectations. You can take the trip as it is shown in the brochure, or change it up with added nights or less nights, or even change hotels. We are sensitive to your time and budget.

Your Personal Concierge Experience For a carefree, stress-free, and worry-free vacation, add a Personal Concierge (PC) to accompany you on your Pre-Designed Travel Experience or on your Custom-Made Journey. An expert Lakani Tour Manager will act as your PC and take care of all the details of traveling. Checking into hotels, tipping, setting up wake up calls, making restaurant reservations, taking care of the luggage, and coordinating with the local guide and driver, are all details that your PC will happily handle, leaving you to simply enjoy your vacation.

Custom-Made Journeys Explore the world in your own style, at your own pace, and on your own schedule. Our knowledgeable experts will create a unique experience to suit your interests and budget. These Custom-Made Journeys are always privately guided by experienced English-speaking experts, and can include cultural exchanges and special events.

Travel The Lakani Way INSPIRING EXPERIENCES IN ABSOLUTE LUXURY

FLEXIBILITY AND INDEPENDENCE Your time is precious, and your vacation should be everything you have dreamed of and more! A Lakani Pre-Designed Private Independent Journey allows you to explore the world’s most remarkable destinations with a flexible schedule and personalized just for you. Savor each site at your own pace. Indulge in unique and remarkable accommodations, carefully selected by the Lakani experts. With decades of experience, the Lakani team crafts exquisite and meaningful worldwide journeys; you can be confident knowing that all details are in order.

2 Call your travel professional or Lakani at (888) 565-5554


CULINARY EXPLORATION Arguably one of the best aspects of world travel is the access to gastronomical specialties of the region. While included meals can be a convenience, they often don’t offer what YOU would have chosen. Lakani believes that your choice is important. While some travelers enjoy gourmet, others prefer more simple fare – or perhaps you desire both! Breakfast is always included to start each day of your vacation. In some locations and lodges meals may be included where it makes sense, but usually you have the freedom and flexibility to experience dining in your own unique way. Indulge in extraordinary service from gourmet, white tablecloth dining; experience regional cuisine at a nearby tavern or bistro; or have a quiet night with room service. The choice is yours.

SAVINGS IN NUMBERS While the pricing for each Pre-Designed Private Independent Experience is based on two people, sharing accommodations, there are benefits to traveling with friends and family. For three or more guests traveling together on one itinerary, we will recalculate the base price for your savings. Consider a multi-generational trip with the grandchildren. Traveling together, whether it is to celebrate a momentous occasion – or just because, provides unforgettable memories and cements relationships.

YOUR EXCLUSIVE TRAVEL CLUB You are automatically enrolled in the exclusive Lakani Travel Club after completing your first Lakani journey. In appreciation for your loyalty, you will receive 5% savings off of subsequent trips. We are confident that once you experience a journey with Lakani – whether it is a Pre-Designed Travel Experience or a Custom Vacation – you will recognize the hallmark of Lakani excellence embedded into every step you take, and yearn to return for many more Lakani vacations.

DISTINCTIVE LODGING The Lakani Hotels of Choice are a select group of accommodations chosen explicitly with your supreme luxury and comfort in mind. You can be confident that these hand-picked hotels and lodges are continually monitored; each are selected for their character, five-star service, luxurious facilities, fabulous restaurants and premium location. With Lakani, you are always assured that you will stay in the top hotels at each captivating destination. And it does not stop there; you are also guaranteed to enjoy the best category of deluxe rooms available. If your hotel has a room with a view, it has been reserved for you. Naturally, you also have the option to upgrade to a suite where available. Ultimately, we aim to not only meet – but exceed your expectations!

CAPTIVATING WONDERS Delight in precious encounters all along the way. Gaze at the unforgettable wildlife as you soar above the Serengeti or Maasai Mara in a beautiful hot air balloon. Enter a local home in Ethiopia and experience traditional cooking. Venture into the Rwandan rainforest and witness the daily life of a gorilla family. Climb up to the impressive Taktsang “Tiger’s Nest” in Bhutan. Cruise Halong Bay and feast your eyes on thousands of limestone islands rising from the water. Immerse yourself in hill tribe culture on a visit to villages in Northern Thailand. Observe the remarkable colors of the famed Taj Mahal at sunrise and sunset. Discover the ancient Incan “lost city” of Machu Picchu. Learn the mysteries of the giant moai statues on Easter Island. Experience the underground Salt Cathedral in Colombia. Gain insight into the scenic wonders in Iceland on a tour of the Golden Circle. Explore the palaces and gardens of Sintra in Portugal. Your vacation should be filled with enjoyable and memorable activities. When you travel with Lakani, let us know what is on your bucket list and we’ll endeavor to make it happen on your luxury journey.

VOLUNTOURISM – REWARDING AND EXPERIENTIAL Lakani believes strongly in giving back to the people who open their homes and hearts to show us their special part of the world. For every finalized booking, Lakani World Tours makes a donation to a local non-profit charitable organization. You also have an opportunity to volunteer in some way to help a community while on tour. This may be as simple as providing and serving breakfast to school children to a more substantial commitment of assisting with home-building or repairs. The options are many and depend on the destination and your own particular interests.

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM Lakani is strongly dedicated to the principles of responsible tourism. We endeavor to protect the environment, economy, and the cultures of the destinations that we include in our programs. By creating itineraries to Africa, for instance, we are contributing to the lives of locals who rely on tourism to make a living by working in the lodges and camps. We support those facilities all the world over that are increasingly using solar energy to provide power; those that use water filtration systems which reduce the use of plastic bottles; and those properties that encourage preservation of natural resources.

MULTI-GENERATIONAL FAMILY TRAVEL Travel not only brings families together but instills a sense of wonderment in the young and old. Children benefit enormously from encounters with different cultures. With the world as a classroom, history is brought to life before their eyes as they view in person the monuments they have learned about at school and in books. There are many ways to create a tour that appeals to grandparents and grandchildren and everyone in between. Some places, like New Zealand and Ireland especially lend themselves to child-friendly destinations where it is easy to find activities to capture the attention of children of all ages. The Lakani experts are particularly adept at advising on and crafting vacations to suit the whole family, regardless of age, for a life-changing adventure for all.
