Pack your bags! The fall travel season is upon us. Here is Ker & Downey’s fall travel guide for the best places to go this fall.
Adventure Fall Travel Guide
Seek out the stark landscapes and vast wilderness of Namibia. While here, discover dry, twisted trees, multicolor sand dunes, and scattered bush vegetation. Indeed, we suggest traveling to Namibia in the fall when the weather turns nice. Additionally, the wildlife is out and about, making it easier to spot on safari drives and walks.
Plan a trip to the Land of the Gods. The start of the trekking season begins in October, so luxury fall travel promises clear skies and the best views of the mountains. Soak up the sun on our Boundless Nepal journey with nature walks, rickshaw rides, and helicopter flights over the Everest region.
Late October marks the end of the rainy season. Therefore, luxury fall travel to Cambodia proves a perfect time to explore the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat. Additionally, travel to the serene coastal town of Kep to see a completely different side and lifestyle of the country. For those seeking adventure, embark on our 10-day Intrepid Cambodia journey. It explores the splendors of the country by gondola, motorbike, tuk tuk, zipline, and kayak.
The dry season in South Africa provides optimal game viewing as animals gather around water holes. Furthermore, the long grasses are sparser, making it easier to spot game. It is also a great time to see newborn animals. As always, we have an extensive range of fall travel guide journeys to South Africa to jump-start your safari planning.
Laos, formerly a forgotten Southeast Asian country on the tourism scene, embraces more and more travelers as they discover the charming heritage and picturesque landscapes of laid-back Laos. Fall brings about pleasant mild weather where several days can be spent on our Classic Luang Prabang journey. It explores the scenic and serene UNESCO town of Luang Prabang’s many ancient temples, cascading waterfalls, and sacred limestone caves filled with thousands of Buddha relics.
Experience the gem of South America by horseback over six days of horseback riding through the beaches, sand dunes, forests, and coastal hills of Rocha. You’ll stay in quaint seaside inns and working estancias where you’ll have authentic gaucho interactions and experiences that provide insight into the country life of Uruguay.
Oktoberfest is the world’s largest fair, attended by nearly 6 million people each year. But just because there are millions of people there, doesn’t mean you can’t partake in the culture and merriment in more intimate ways. With Ker & Downey, you’ll have VIP tickets to the traditional costume parade to kick off the festivities and dinner in an exclusive beer tent, where celebrities are commonly spotted and getting a table there is almost as difficult as getting a box for the Super Bowl.
Culinary Fall Travel Guide
Make your way through Italy tasting the region’s finest wines, cheeses, and culinary delights on a 10-day food and wine tour. Of course, learn the art of pizza making with an authentic Neapolitan pizza making class. Then go behind the scenes with a tour of a pasta factory to witness the production of pasta, a staple in Italian cuisine.
Dig deep into the origins of many of our favorite foods – guacamole, tamales, and chocolate – on a 13-day journey through Guatemala. Indeed, many people still use the ingredients and recipes the ancient Mayans discovered, developed, and refined to this day. Enjoy a visit to the chocolate museum and learn how to prepare the country’s most famous export from scratch. Then a cooking class in a local kitchen, visit the famous market stalls of Chichicastenango. Finally, visit a coffee hacienda. It’s a flavorful trip of equal parts discovery and indulgence!
