Elephants and temples

What was it that you liked best about our holiday’, I asked my son - trying to remember all the highlights of our summer trip, ‘the elephant safari, the dugout canoe or reaching the World’s End?’ He thought for a moment then grinned. ‘The brilliant knock-about games on the beach with our Group leader Ruwan’. I might have guessed...the cricket.

I’ve always known Sri Lanka, the land of Serendip and constant surprises, is a ‘top destination’ among our customers – but now that I’ve travelled there with my family, I can understand why.

Felucca adventures

The winner of our writing competition, Julie Musk, tells us all about the Felucca Adventure she had with her family in Egypt.

"Our two children (aged 8 and 10) will hopefully have some great memories of our family adventure experience. The tombs and temples were awesome, full of hidden meanings, which our guide Ahmed did his best to explain. Each visit to a different site reinforced some of what we’d learnt and each place had its own unique atmosphere.

Living the Jungle Book Dream

Having gone to India hopeful of seeing one or maybe two tigers, this trip far surpassed my expectations! If you think of safari trips, then seeing the big five in Africa might spring to mind, but India is an equally fantastic destination for seeing a whole wealth of animal and birdlife.

An Amazing Adventure

A truly fantastic holiday and what an adventure. There were so many highlights that it is impossible to detail them all, the tranquillity of being poled through the Okavango in Mokoro's where there seemed as much wildlife joining us in the Mokoro's as was seen from them, some beautiful frogs which landed on your knee to slightly less beautiful spiders and mantis but great fun.

Travel Problems

Am booked on tomorrows' Winter Toubkal trek and have just found out that my flight to Heathrow has been cancelled. Is anyone else experiencing problems getting there, or is it just me?

The ironic thing is wanting to do Toubkal in snow - and what is stopping us getting out of this country? Yup - you got it!!!! lol

Makgadikgadi Migration

On our Botswana accommodated trip. We went to the town Nata to view the Makgadikgadi pans (one of the largest saltpans in the world). We came across two herds of zebra each consisting of about 500 zebra, on their way to the Boteti river. It was an awesome sight, even for the guides.  Dave and I, the guides on the trip, came from parts of South Africa where zebras are quite well known and seen but this was unbelievable.

Under African Skies

During the week in Kenya a full safari itinerary in the Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru yielded many wonderful sights of the East African wildlife with most enjoying sightings of elephants, lions, giraffe, the two African species of rhinoceros, cheetah, leopard, zebra and various antelope. The diverse and colourful birdlife of Kenya was also enjoyed by many.
