It’s FINALLY HERE!!!I At long last, we have our options for the trip AdventureWomen and Meagan O Photography are planning together. I need you to VOTE! Now, if this totally isn't something you're interested in or would want to do, don't vote. I want to hear from those of you who both would want to see that location AND think you'd be able to swing the approximate price range, date range (all of which are sometime in 2020-so over a year away) and could physically participate in the activities listed.
Also, if you want to read more in-depth about my experience with AdventureWomen from March of 2018, check out my detailed Japan adventure. And stay tuned for a deep dive about our Indonesian adventure in the future (which is where I took the images featured in this blog.)

Adventures: Meet Maasai women, walk with giraffes, zebras and wildebeests, visit a local health clinic, tons of wildlife viewing and an optional hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti.
The details: This will be a woman's only, small group trip. I'm capping the first year's trip at only 12 clients. The first 12 to get in touch and put their deposit down will be the 12 to go! Once the trip is decided, there will be a $1,500 deposit to hold your slot and the remainder will be due 90 days before departure.
What's included: The prices listed above are averages, but they shouldn't deviate much. The price includes all 4/5 star luxury accommodations, all excursions (although there will be the option for some trips to add additional excursions if you're interested), most meals, one AdventureWomen ambassador who will travel with us and handle things like lost baggage/illness/other crazy travel stuff, and an epic photo session with Meagan O Photography AND all edited images from your photo session digitally.
What's not included: Flights, additional nights if you choose to fly in early or stay longer (though, AdventureWomen can help you do that if that's something you're interested in), alcoholic beverages and any printed photo material. You're welcome to purchase canvases/albums/prints from me, but you'll also have the digitals and are welcome to print them at a lab of your choice.
I plan to announce the winning trip on the blog Friday, October 26th! Stay tuned!!!
