Discover the Types of Travel Experiences Mangata Travel can Design for You

I’ll plan your custom itinerary around your trip goals and vision, whatever they may be.

Read on to discover the wide breath of trip types I can put together for you—of course, we can combine trip styles to create a totally customized-to-you experience as well.


Experience the beating heart of your destination—and get your own heart pumping—on an intrepid journey through some of the world’s last remaining wild spaces. My team and I will pair you with experienced guides and vetted tour outfitters who will bring you to the edge safely and comfortably, all while sharing expert insights into the habitats you’re exploring.

Kayak through Iceland’s fjords as you paddle around massive icebergs; chase cheetahs and wildebeest with your camera on a photography-focused African safari; scale Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania; tee off in Scotland’s windswept highlands on a getaway to the birthplace of golf. Or, combine deep discovery with a relaxed way to explore on a specially equipped expedition cruise that sails you right to the world’s most remote locales—like the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon River, or otherworldly Antarctica.


Active & Adventure Travel

I LOVE planning family travel experiences—because I believe nothing helps your children grow more than sharing the world with them. Whether your family is after a relaxing resort stay or a rendezvous through Europe, I’ll work with you to hand-pick the perfect accommodations, arrange private tours and excursions, and pull the kids into the planning so you all have skin in the game. We’ll tailor your trip to your family’s preferred travel style and pacing as well as your children’s ages (no 7 am wake up calls for teens, for example!).

My family travel services extend beyond just your next trip. Similar to how a financial advisor helps you forecast your financial health for the long term, I help your family plan long term for a lifetime of exploring. Together, we’ll map out your dream trips over the coming years and align them with your family’s life stages and comfort level with international travel—this year, maybe it’s the beach-y all-inclusive in Mexico … but Year 5 may be the big African safari!


Family Travel

Ready to step outside your day-to-day and experience how life is lived halfway around the world? From a week among the vineyards and castles of Tuscany to a journey deep in the Ecuadorian rainforest, I design custom itineraries packed full of cultural connection. We’ll center your journey around your particular interests, whether that’s art and architecture, history, dance, crafting, or (lots of!) food and wine.

My goal is to take you further on your itinerary, with authentic, local-led activities and experiences. Don’t just attend a cooking class; join the chef on a market tour beforehand to see who you’re getting the food from. Don’t just visit a village; opt for an immersive home stay where a local family welcomes you in and reveals what village life is really like. Because real cross-cultural connections happen when you stray a bit from the same-old tourist path.


Cultural Journeys

Visiting a destination during a celebratory holiday or festival adds a whole new dimension to your journey. Maybe it’s the Pushkar Camel fair in Rajasthan, where majestic, bedecked camels are paraded through the streets. Maybe it’s Bavaria’s charming Christmas markets, where spiced gluhwein and potato pancakes warm the chilly nights as you stroll the artisan stalls. Or maybe it's the Loy Krathong Festival in Thailand, where you’ll never forget the ethereal sight of thousands of delicate water lanterns floating down the rivers. If you want to experience the magic for yourself, I can design a full itinerary around festival attendance for you.

Or maybe you want to explore the sportier side of a destination? We can design a trip around sporting events that fire up your fan side, like soccer games (or even the World Cup), golf tournaments, tennis matches, and more. See your favorite stars compete, and then get exploring on your custom-crafted itinerary.


Festivals & Events 

Ready for a truly relaxed escape? I can work with you to plan a resort vacation that fits your needs right now—whether you’re simply seeking some sun, sand, and surf, or you’re after a wellness reset. From family-friendly all-inclusive resorts that make fun in the sun absolutely effortless, to refined wellness resorts known for spa treatments and health-focused activities, I’ll pair you with your perfect property.

Then, I’ll make your entire stay even easier by taking care of all the “extras”—like seamless airport transfers. Want to explore off-property? Let’s hook you up with immersive excursions and activities that reveal the heart of your destination beyond the beach or sauna.
