If you answered "yes," you'll be excited to know that one of the world's top travel companies is partnering with the world's leading producer of award-winning natural history documentaries to make those wishes a reality.

Tauck, the world-leader in guided, premium-quality land journeys and cruises, has entered into an exclusive, multi-year partnership with BBC Earth to bring the expertise and perspectives of BBC wildlife filmmakers to Tauck's itineraries exploring the natural world. -The BBC is the world's leading producer of highly acclaimed, award-winning natural history documentaries, such as Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, Life and The Blue Planet. Those series and other BBC productions have reached more than 500 million people in over 180 countries worldwide to date

The new Earth Journeys collaboration will launch, and initial components of the partnership are being phased into several existing Tauck itineraries over the course of the coming year. Natural history enthusiasts can choose between two African safaris (the 12-day "Botswana, South Africa & Zambia" itinerary and the 13-day "Kenya & Tanzania: A Classic Safari"), Tauck's 13-day "Antarctica" cruise expedition, and the company's six-day "Manitoba: Polar Bear Adventure" in Canada. Each of these special travel experiences offers travelers a unique, in-depth and enriching opportunity to, in the words of Tauck and BBC Earth, "come meet your planet."

Here are just some of the details of the new Earth Journey's partnership:

* Tauck will work with BBC Earth to use the same cutting-edge technologies employed by its filmmakers to bring Tauck guests into more intimate contact with the destinations they're visiting. Specific technologies will vary by itinerary, and may include motion-activated camera traps, infrared night-vision cameras, long-range directional microphones, underwater cameras, and small fiber-optic endoscopic cameras.

* BBC Earth will create a series of original, exclusive films that Tauck guests will view on location. These brief (approximately 10 to 20 minutes) vignettes will utilize BBC Earth's incredible resources, including the world's largest collection of nature film footage plus insights and voiceovers from BBC Earth experts. The resulting films will provide context and add fresh perspective to the animal life and natural wonders that Tauck guests are experiencing during their travels.

* Tauck will also work directly with BBC Earth filmmakers and naturalists, leveraging their passion and experience to add additional original content to the portfolio of Earth Journeys itineraries.

* Going forward, BBC Earth will also work with Tauck to co-create entirely new Earth Journeys itineraries for launch and beyond.
