Tahoe City, CA, Sept. 13, 2010 – AdventureSmith Explorations, the active travel company that secures matches between adventure-seeking clients and a treasure trove of small, expedition ships announces that new bookings confirmed on the M/V Eclipse for tours of the Galapagos Islands departing between Oct. 9, 2010, and Mar. 31, 2011, will be entered into a drawing to win a luxury African safari for two.

Todd Smith, AdventureSmith Exploration’s owner and founder, said because there are only a few M/V Eclipse departures in this time frame, passengers have “great odds to win this fantastic prize worth approximately $8,000.” He explained that this promotion is for new bookings only and that each confirmed guest, regardless of age, will be entered into the drawing so families and groups have a higher chance of winning.

The African safari takes the winners to East Africa to the exclusive and secluded Swala tented camp in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park as well as the 2010 Conde Nast Gold List Olonana tented camp located at the foot of the dramatic Siria Escarpment where the movie “Out of Africa” was filmed.

Smith said that ever since her arrival in Ecuador, the M/V Eclipse has left an impression on visitors as one of the finest cruise ships in the Galapagos Islands offering unparalleled levels of comfort and service. She was converted specifically for upscale cruising in the islands and was designed to meet the exacting demands of luxury travel.

Galapagos Eclipse cruise packages begin and end in colonial Quito, Ecuador and include Quito hotel accommodations, airport/hotel transfers, round trip flights from mainland Ecuador to the Galapagos Islands and a half day tour of the Quito's old town, a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.
