Ways to Travel
Our Hosted tours are created specifically with women in mind. These tours include many enriching cultural experiences, splashes of luxury, incredible cuisine and as much adventure as you would like. Limited to 6-10 guests, accompanied by a Mai Journeys Host and made even more informative and enriching with insights from our superb local guides. These tours are an ideal way for women to travel safely among the company of other female travellers. Our Hosted itineraries are generally limited to one departure per year.
Our Hosted Escapes are for women who need to get away to recharge and reset within a small, intimate group environment. Our Hosted Escapes are designed to focus on YOU - on relaxation, rejuvenation, spa, yoga & meditation. The yoga & meditation are part of the Escape, but are not the sole reason for the Escape. These Escapes tend to be just on a week or under 10 days, are designed by us here at Mai Journeys, and one of our Hosts will be with you for the entirety of this journey. We also spend time immersing in the local community and enjoying excursions that show us the culture of where we are at. Absolutely perfect to re-charge the batteries.
Our Hosted Get-Aways are perfect for women who don't have the time for one of our Fully Hosted tours, yet still need to get away to recharge and re-focus. Our Escorted Get-Aways are co-ordinated and designed by either Mai Journeys or one of our close collaborators, and one of our Escorts will be with you on this journey. These Get-Aways tend to be under a week or 10 days, and focus on good food, good wine, great accommodation and fabulous company.
See the world how you want to see it. Our Bespoke / Tailor Made journeys are ideal for couples, families or friends who wish to travel together privately on the dates of their choice. You can use our sample itineraries to guide you, or we can handcraft a journey exclusively for you based on your interests and budget; you tell us where you want to go, in detail or with parameters to work within, and we arrange the services to fit your wishes. We will create an itinerary to reflect your vision. Accommodation, transport, driver, meals, excursions and the services of expert local guides are all arranged for you within your preferred budget.

Absolutely prefect to re-charge your batteries on your own time.
Our Hosted Safaris take you to the heart of prime game-viewing locations staying in lodges, permanent tented camps and mobile tented camps, all located in scenic game parks and reserves. Depart your usual world, and step into an unforgettable experience of game drives in open four-wheel-drives, seeking out the Mountain Gorillas or the Big 5, exploring the great plains of the Serengeti or drifting in a makoro in the Okavango Delta. Sit back, relax and take in the amazing scenery while everything is taken care of for you.
The allure of small-ship cruises is the flexibility and ease with which you are able to navigate some of the most fascinating destinations on Earth. Smaller boats and ships are able to manoeuvre in small coves and channels and dock at more intimate ports, and this makes for a more fascinating travel experience. Small ship cruises take you where big ships simply cannot.
Walks & Treks
Varied and spectacular natural attractions and archaeological ruins give hikers and trekkers a plethora of choices for being outdoors. From easy to challenging, trekking in the Andes to the far reaches of Australia, these trips provide ample opportunity to hike in amazing surroundings. The most famous of all climbs in South America is in Peru with the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. As you move on foot through often-rural and outback areas, trekking gives you an up-close view of the scenery; as you travel through isolated areas you get a travel experience that is very different from that of other people.
Expedition Cruising offers unique opportunities such as traveling in the wake of early explorers, cruising by Zodiac through Arctic waters, kayaking among penguins, or playing soccer with villagers in the Amazon jungle. Expedition ships cater to adventure-seeking travelers and generally focus on remote scenery or wildlife viewing. Amenities range widely from cruise ship to ship, from basic accommodations to luxurious appointments.
It is amazing getting to know the benefits of travel by bike. Pedaling through the countryside, you’ll be intimately connected to the landscape, your senses fully engaged in the experience. The sights, sounds, and smells of the environment, the unique and delectable taste of seasonal specialties, and interactions with local people lead to true understanding and full-bodied memories that last a lifetime. Enjoy the world at your own pace on bikes designed to go wherever you want as fast as you want to. Bikes connect you with the amazing world around you like no other means of travel can. Just you and the open road.
