Treehouse in Taznania, lake manyara safari

Hi, I’m Misha. Welcome to my luxury wilderness travel blog.

I seek out intimate luxury travel experiences that provide guests with a deep connection to nature. Whether it be a wilderness lodge, wildlife safari, guest ranch, or farm stay, I will show you the best that each outdoor-focused destination has to offer.

Imagine wide open plains, and the patter of horses galloping freely through the morning mist. A warm breeze cascading through autumn's rustling trees and over the brush. Gleams of sunlight peeking through the soft clouds and into the windows of your cozy cabin. This is Magee Homestead at Brush Creek Ranch. Undoubtedly, one of the most spectacular 5 star luxury guest ranches you could ever dream of.

Awasi Atacama is an extraordinary luxury property in the Atacama Desert of Chile. Located in the charming old town of San Pedro de Atacama, this untouched area has some of the most unique and diverse landscapes I've ever explored. Distant snow covered mountains, orange sand dunes for miles, spectacular valleys, and vast salt flats - are just some of the many panoramic backdrops we witnessed. 

I recently went on a mother daughter trip with my youngest, to Peru. As we drove from the airport to the town of Urubamba in Peru, we didn’t know exactly what to expect. I knew it would be beautiful, and I knew we would enjoy ourselves. What I didn’t know, is how it would be one of my very favorite trips to date. One of the main reasons for this chart-topping trip, aside from the special time with my daughter, was our stay at the luxury boutique ranch in Peru’s Sacred Valley - Sol Y Luna.

It is a one-of-a-kind luxury destination about discovery, nature, and history; a beautifully manicured tranquil oasis for those who love the great outdoors but also have a taste for the finer things in life.
