Dear Vacations To Go Customer,
There's more good news on the Covid-19 front as new cases in the U.S.
are down 73% since the peak on January 11 and cases in Canada are down
66% since the peak on January 9. Click

The new, one-shot vaccine from Johnson & Johnson was approved by the FDA
this past weekend and will be put to use immediately alongside the
vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. Merck will help produce the J&J
vaccine and the expectation now is that every American adult who wants a
vaccine will be able to get it by the end of May. Prime Minister Trudeau
has said that every Canadian who wants the vaccine will be able to get
it by the end of September.
Half of Americans age 65 and older have already received at least one
dose of a vaccine and that segment of the population is helping to fuel
a surge in bookings at Vacations To Go.
I apologize to anyone who waited on hold to speak to one of our amazing
tour specialists in the past 10 days.

Formed by erosion from the Atlantic Ocean, the
harbor of Rio de Janeiro
in Brazil is the largest natural bay in the world based on volume of
water. Also known as Guanabara Bay, the harbor is surrounded by monolith
granite mountains, including Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Tijuca hills and
Corcovado Peak (home to the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue). The bay
includes over 130 islands.

Fed by Zambia's Zambezi River,

sheet during the rainy period. The mist created by the falls as the
thundering curtain of water plummets into the Zambezi Gorge can rise 100
feet in the air, explaining the name given by the Kololo tribe in the
1800s: Mosi-oa-Tunya -- "the smoke that thunders."

One of the most incredible places on Earth is Tanzania's
