Compass Blog

Compass is a collection of blogs based on the imaginative research the Kensington team undertakes to ensure we find new and better ways to transform travel into a more meaningful and personal experience. In other words, we are always on the lookout for a secret café in Paris, the best spot to find the black rhino, a favorite local dish, a superb hike out of Buenos Aires and the next great hidden lodge. To accomplish this we've enlisted our team of destination specialists. When they are not designing custom trips that wow our clients, they are traveling the world for inspiration. In addition, we have pulled together a team of 'Explorers-In-Residence' - Royal Geographic Society Fellows, Explorer's Club Fellows and leading adventurers with fascinating stories. Follow these explorers and gain a unique perspective from their awe-inducing expeditions.

A Mother Daughter Adventure in Egypt

After returning from her private guided tour of Egypt, this happy Kensington traveler was kind enough to share her blog article with us... I always told my daughter that if she graduated college with honours we’d go on the mother- daughter trip of her choice. She picked Egypt. Although we’d been to Europe many times, neither of us had ever been to Northern Africa or the Middle East so it was with some trepidation that we anticipated our adventure. Read More »
