Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals could be great opportunities to lock in sale prices for next year's vacations. Whether it's a safari to Africa or a getaway to Santa Barbara, you can shop around among the hotels, cruise lines, tour operators and others that are diving into the seasonal sale game. A tip: Check Twitter and Facebook for exclusive offers that are likely to hit this weekend. Here are some travel sales I think are worth a look.

Abercrombie & Kent: High-end travel outfitter A&K gives travelers more than a day to contemplate its sale on trips to Italy, India, Jordan, Kenya and more. Six Days of Holiday Savings takes up to 50% off selected winter itineraries. The sale begins 7 a.m. PST Monday and continues through 11 a.m. PST on Dec. 3.
