1) Conservation
Tswalu Kalahari in Northern South Africa boasts some of the most advanced and successful conservation initiatives in South Africa.

3) The activities

The red dusty rolling hills here are breathtakingly beautiful and you can walk, ride or game drive.

4) The Malori sleep out

This is certainly one of the most luxurious sleep outs in all of Africa.

Growing up on the East Coast (Long Island, NY), I long for the Weekend Getaways with my parents to “Upstate” NY. We had picnics along the Delaware Water gap, sang songs, visited my parents friends, ect. I treasured those weekends and passed along the tradition with my own children. When my 3 boys were 12, 7 & 6 (today 30, 26 & 25) we took a road trip, one of many, to Niagara Falls, and to this day we still talk about “The Falls” Ithaca Falls was one of the most recent. I didnt even know it was in existence, until I visited a friend who lived in Ithaca a few years back & went on a hike. There’s just a magical/mysterious beauty that, I find at least, in stumbling along Waterfalls. So when I cane across this Article, not only was I anxious to read it, Id like to share it with others. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

At 10:21am tomorrow, September 22, 2016, is the Fall Equinox. I describe it as when there is a shift from warm, beautiful summer days to cozy fall. There are only two times of the year when the Earth’s axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun. March 19th (Vernal Equinox – the first day of Spring) and September 22nd, (Autumnal Equinox – the first day of fall). We’re going to be enjoying the cooler days of autumn, while, south of the equator, spring is about to begin.

The word Equinoz is from the Latin aequinoctium, aequus (equal) and nox (genitive noctis) (night).

If youre interested in learning more about the Equinox, just follow the link below.

Its always a good idea to keep up with Travel, Travel Tips, and Vacation ideas as you plan your vacations ahead. Fall just so happens to be my favorite time of year & as those warm days just basking on the beach, and the last rays of sun lingering late into the evening are winding down. Crisp, cool temperatures and crunchy leaves make fall our favorite time to wander through Central Park in New York City for example. Also,
lets go walking in the woods and enjoy the dramatic fall colors — without the summer crowds. Theres nothing like biking under a fiery orange canopy of trees! So reading up on the latest, is certainly something we suggest, as we approach the upcoming Season. It could be just for fun, or educating yourself on safety, travel laws, ect.  Enjoy!

We LOVE Fall in New England. Besides Apple picking & hiking the colorful trails, the best way to take in the beautiful landscape and make the most of the autumn colors is to seek out an overlooked vista, a hidden gem, or a new adventure! You can start in Northern part of Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine and follow peak foliage south over the course of a week or two. Midweek is the time to hop between towns. For a vintage and very scenic travel experience, hop on a New England railroad car and cruise along the countryside. TIP: Do consider making your reservation as much as two months in advance, (which means now!) especially if you’ve got your eye on a particular room at a particular property.

Want to gain a huge advantage in channel management? Learn how IWB makes MyAllocator better.

IWB has partnered with MyAllocator for years, offering one of the best solutions for channel management and property management. Because of our unique partnership, there are benefits only available to properties that become users of MyAllocator from the IWB interface. In fact, these benefits are unique to IWB users.

Will you have access to the full MyAllocator interface? Yes. And best of all, there’s no additional cost. You just add IWB as your property management system in the MyAllocator system.

Major Benefits of using MyAllocator with IWB:

1) Sign up for MyAllocator from the IWB interface, and get a free trial.
2) IWB will automatically create and configure your rooms on MyAllocator.
3) Use the IWB Calendar for free. Many users agree that our Calendar interface is the most intuitive and advanced for managing your availability. It’s free, and similar features are available only at a cost from other providers.
4) Instant World Booking is the only service connected to MyAllocator which offers both a booking site (distribution) and a property management system.
5) IWB gives you access to the full MyAllocator interface. It’s all available on the IWB interface, and there’s no need to log into 2 systems simultaneously.
6) All your reservations from all channels will appear on one integrated booking list. This is the same efficient reservation tool you’re already accustomed to on the IWB interface.
7) IWB uses an advanced queueing method to send updates to your channels via MyAllocator. IWB is the only provider that works this way. So why is this critically important? If you use MyAllocator alone (without IWB), updates are sent immediately and only once to your channels. But, what happens if the update fails, or a particular channel can’t accept updates at that time? You may not know that it failed. This happens frequently, and is an unpleasant reality with channel management systems. You waste a lot of time returning to your computer to repeat the procedure manually, only to watch it fail again? IWB eliminates this problem for you. If a channel rejects an update, IWB will resend the update until it is accepted.
8) No more confusing error codes. IWB analyzes channel errors from MyAllocator. We notify you when a channel failure requires your attention. If you use MyAllocator alone (without IWB) you may receive error codes when you try to update a channel. You have to research the error yourself, or contact support. IWB eliminates the guesswork. We communicate the exactly problem to you, and which rooms are effected.
9) Click to synchronize any room type. If you have a problem with external channels or an individual room, IWB allows you to resynchronize one or all rooms with one click. MyAllocator does not offer this functionality. In fact, a bigger problem is that full refresh on MyAllocator may fail occasionally with some channels. Our method will automatically reconnect in the background until all channels have accepted the update.
10) You get perfect integration between your website’s Booking Engine and all your channels. Use IWB’s Booking Engine on your website, and never worry about synchronizing your calendar with external booking sites. Our Booking Engine is an advanced solution that provides a superior customer experience.
11) If you’re looking for a more advanced property management solution, you can try IWBFrontDesk 2, So, you have 2 options for a property management system, and it’s perfectly integrated with MyAllocator and IWB.

To get started, please log into your profile at the IWB interface. Proceed to the page entitled Channel Manager.  If you are not already a member, sign up here:  Add Property

If you are already a member of MyAllocator, please go to the MyAllocator interface. On the menu, select Property Management System Connections. Follow the instructions to select IWB.
