Women's Adventure Travels®

Empowering & Transformative Travel Designed by Women, for Women, and with Women

Welcome to Women's Adventure Travels®

Women's Adventure Travels® is a boutique travel company that specializes in small, well-curated, and customized trips for women.  Aside from the inherent adventure at hand, all WAT trips have an empowering and fierce feminine thread throughout, supporting women-owned businesses and celebrating women of influence and distinction in each market, be it a hotelier, a chef, an artisan, a conservationist or a village woman defying the local or global odds.

 

Surrounded by spirited, like-minded women and set in stunning landscapes, WAT trips provide a mad mix of outdoor and adventure activities at various levels to suit you. We combine that with cultural immersion and stay in top spots around the world that showcase an authentic ambiance, exceptional local artisans, art and architecture, as well as local food, beverages and an element of wellness throughout. Be sure to visit our Mission Page for the spirit of all things WAT-related. 

 

I look forward to meeting you, and traveling with you, and sharing many inspirational, empowering and joyful journeys ahead. I'll see you on The Global Road!

We at WAT/Women's Adventure Travels® are an impassioned group of women travelers who love to flex our sense of adventure as much as we do our sense of humor. We love to learn, and we are incredibly curious. We are into camaraderie and incredible conversation. We are not afraid to stand up for ourselves and others and what we believe in. We're fun!

We create authentic, immersive, well-curated, adventure-driven itineraries for women that allow them to step off the beaten path and out of their comfort zones. We encourage them to dive deep into the local culture, community, and themselves. We celebrate women, ourselves, and every inch of the journey at hand.

We are committed to creating extraordinary, meaningful, and transformative travel for women. If you like a little inspiration with your destination, experiencing a sense of empowerment in yourself and others, and enjoying being challenged as much as being spoiled, you’ve come to the right place. We got you!

WAT'S MISSION STATEMENT

At Women’s Adventure Travels®, we're on a mission to celebrate women and to inspire women to empower themselves and those around them through travel.

 

We believe in celebrating women and visiting women-owned and operated businesses and women of distinction and influence in each market, especially those defying the local or global odds. 

 

We believe in women and the transformative power of travel.  

 

We believe that everyone has a story to tell. We want to hear theirs and share ours. We believe in a deep dive into the local communities. We want to dig our hands deep into the sand.

 

We believe in conservation and responsible, sustainable eco-tourism. We are committed to supporting the individuals and businesses that are leading that charge.

 

We believe there is an equal exchange of change in travel. The people and places we visit will change, and we will never be the same.

 

We choose passion over perfection, and we believe in big belly laughs, unbridled joy, happiness in its many forms, and that you can never laugh too loudly or too long.

 Many have called Zambia the ‘Authentic Africa’ as it harkens back to another era on the continent. From safaris to sleeping under the stars, to village visits and dancing in the dark, time seems to have stood still in this seductive southern African country.
