I was browsing through the Northern European selections on the RCI web site and noticed a subheading for European Resorts with Safari. I was curious about what resorts in Northern Europe might offer a safari. The resorts I pulled were in Kenya, which is in Africa, not Europe. It seems to me that a subhead for African resorts with safari would make more sense. Is there a rationale for this classification that I am missing?

Also, if I search under Northern Europe for European Resorts with live entertainment, I get resorts in Europe, Africa (e.g. Egypt) and Asia (e.g. India).

EAM,

If you are searching using the Points website, you will see that the international regions do not search properly. You should have better success using specific resort choices. This is something we know about and plan to correct in upcoming web initiatives.

If not, please give me a couple of examples of specific regions that showed the anomalies and I'll check them out.

The resorts in bold type are in Asia or Africa. And according to my atlas, Malta and Greece are in Southern Europe, not Northern Europe.
