Plot Your Own Path


Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.

Want to go hiking or birding in the oldest nature reserve in Kazakhstan – and the only UNESCO-listed biosphere in the region? How about attending a master class in the making and playing of traditional Kazakh musical instruments? Need suggestions?

To get started planning a Kazakhstan itinerary, take a look at our suggested Private Journey to the region, Essential Kazakhstan, or read more about how to design your own trip.
