Ker & Downey


Though it has a strong presence in Africa (when Oprah booked her first safari, she turned to K&D), this 45-year-old outfit is game to customize activity-packed trips across the globe (trekking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding). Many guides have been with the company since day one and can swing special events like dinner with an Indian royal family.
