Focus – what we focus on expands, and that applies to everything from politics to adventure travel. At Big Five, we focus on the space between – between what is expected and what is unknown; between where tourism is and where we want to travel. Each of us needs to explore the space in between all the noise in the world today to find what is most important to us while we also strive to meet the challenge to use travel to better the world, to change others’ lives and redefine preservation and conservation in ways philanthropy alone simply cannot.

Discover Your Travel DNA! Our Distinctive Navigator Analyzer or DNA offers a unique twist on the usual vacation planning. We have reversed the process currently accepted in planning a vacation. Instead of fitting the guest into a destination, with DNA you can discover the best destinations for you that speak to your particular interests and passions whether you are an Adrenalin Seeker, a Culture Junky or something more. With this simple tool, you open up a world of possible destinations that genuinely excite you. Visit yourtraveldna.com to get your Travel DNA profile.
We believe the power of travel can serve as a positive force unlike any other to bring people together and help save the planet. They are designed for travelers and travel advisors with simple rankings that tell you how destinations in Latin America are doing regarding sustainable tourism based upon the globally recognized three pillars of sustainable tourism: environmentally friendly practices; support for the protection of natural and cultural heritage; and contributing to the social and economic well-being of local communities.
Galapagos.com This sustainable travel website is designed for travelers and travel advisors with simple rankings that tell you how destinations in Latin America are doing regarding sustainable tourism based upon the three pillars of sustainable tourism mentioned above. We selected one of Darwin’s finches as the symbol and call the blog Wandering Finch, which will cover topics related to the region and sustainability.
Safaritours.com deals with our Africa destinations, which face entirely different problems and require unique and innovative ideas and solutions. The African elephant is the obvious symbol, and the blog for this site is the World of Ellie. Over time, their numbers have diminished dramatically due to changes in habitat, loss of migration routes, increased human settlements, ivory hunting and poaching.
Visibleasia.com encompasses the broad sweep of Asia and the South Pacific with topics related to these regions and how sustainability is bein envisioned there. Like the elephant, the tiger, sadly, was the easy choice of a symbol for Asia. Once roaming across Asia, elephants have lost a startling 93% of their historic range in only a century. There is hope on the horizon for the regal tiger as conservation projects are being carried out across the tiger’s kingdom. Visible Pause is the blog for this region.
We hope you will join us in the conversation.
