LOS ANGELES, CA, MARCH 26, 2015 – Known for its authentic and immersive insider access, Cox & Kings, a leading luxury travel outfitter, has introduced more options for guests to traverse a destination in indigenous and original ways, deepening their travel experience even further.  As part of their annual forecast of travel trends, Cox & Kings noticed an audible increase in the demand for this aspect of travel for 2015.  In response, many of the company’s journeys now feature distinctive ways of getting from here to there, heightening the sense of novelty and discovery for guests.
