Lisa Lindblad has been traveling since her early childhood. When she was twenty, she drove overland from London to Nairobi, an eight-month trip that extended into a long stay in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and another among the Maasai in Kenya’s Maasai Mara. The journey also led to a post-graduate degree in Anthropology at Columbia University, and four books on the subject.

Lindblad’s background in anthropology comes through in her itineraries, which frequently include trips led by historians and experiences usually only available to in-the-know locals. Her recommendations are based on in-depth research, conducted with specific clients in mind.

She has co-authored a series of photographic travel books for Rizzoli International Publications and a highly-regarded children’s science book. She has consulted on travel for American Express and Aman, and has collaborated with The Environmental Bamboo Foundation of Bali, and Aid To Artisans. Lisa Lindblad participated in the development of Lindblad Expeditions–one of today’s finest travel companies. Lisa Lindblad also collaborates with Essentialist–consulting on travel operations.

It is in the eyes of a face halfway around the globe, in the fingertips of an artisan’s handshake, in the intensity of a youth’s stare, the truth that more connects us than separates us, that we are one family.
