Tauck promises its guests will have a “special Tauck moment” on each journey. And now they’re capturing that moment in video.
The cruise line has entered into a new multi-year agreement with BBC Earth to completely recreate its Earth Journeys itineraries.
Initial components of the partnership will commence in 2014 – with BBC’s wildlife filmmakers contributing their expertise and perspectives to several itineraries, including; the 12-day Botswana, South Africa & Zambia; 13-day Kenya & Tanzania: A Classic Safari; the 13-day Antarctica cruise expedition; and six-day Manitoba: Polar Bear Adventure in Canada.
Changes to itineraries include a the creation of a series of original, exclusive films running 10-20 minutes that guests will view on location. They will feature BBC Earth’s collection of nature film footage and provide a new perspective to the animal life and natural wonders that Tauck guests experience during their travels.
According to Tauck chief executive Dan Mahar, Earth Journeys will enhance guest experiences.
Mr Mahar said: “Tauck will be providing our guests with a richer, deeper immersion into the natural world’s most compelling destinations.
“It’s truly a case of the whole being far greater than the sum of its parts.”
Going forward, BBC Earth will work with Tauck to recreate all Earth Journeys itineraries for launch in 2015 and beyond.
Other phases of the partnership are expected to be announced in the coming months, and could involve BBC Earth filming guest experiences.
