Where are the wildebeest? Updates on the Great Migration.

“The Great Wildebeest Migration, is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”.

No where in the world is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration. Over 2 million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.

The migration is fraught with danger. They have to cross the Mara River in the Maasai Mara where crocodiles will prey on them. This is one of the highlights as the animals try and cross the Mara River alive.

Hands on experience in the Selati Game Reserve

The "Hands on" experience was amazing. We had many "encounters" with Lion, Elephant and Rhino ~ all memorable.  The prime encounter has to be this.

I was there in the Bush when they tranquillised (darted)  Mbhurri ~ a mature lion, in order to replace a malfunctioning tracking collar. 

The operation initially utilised three vehicles, the Research team, which included us volunteers, a Marksman's vehicle , and a safari vehicle transporting the Vet. 

Easter in South Africa

Watching Turtles on our Family Holiday in Turkey

Our family holidays to Turkey are packed full of adventure and experiences. This family joined us on one of our dedicated family holidays to Turkey. Read about their personalexperiences below.

Hi guys,

I've attached a few photos from last week below - I don't know if this is the right place but it seems as good as any. I've tried to leave out all the moving pictures of the floor.

It was good to walk with you all - a really good week. Shall maybe see a few of you again some time.

All the best.

Awe inspiring trip to Iceland

We are still spellbound by this country. Despite erratic weather, the trip was amazing, awe-inspiring and deeply soul-cleansing. Adventurous but well paced with plenty of time to do your own thing. On a practical note, good outerwear (skiing kit) is a must, as are decent walking shoes. Thoroughly recommended, so much so that we plan to go back for more.

Cardiff Air Cadets on Atlas Mountains Expedition

14 staff and 20 cadets from 1344 Cardiff Squadron, Air Training Corps, have just returned from their first overseas adventurous training expedition in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco. The Atlas Mountains are a mountain range across a northern stretch of Africa extending about 2,400 km (1,500 miles) through Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia.  The expedition lasted a week and included a day in Marakkech before being transported to Oukaimeden at 8,600 feet in the Atlas Mountains to begin trekking.

My family trip to North India

Our trip to India really started for me and for my daughter on the afternoon of the first day when we boarded bicycle rickshaws from outside the Friday Mosque to tour around Old Delhi.

Kenya

I haven’t been to Africa before so wasn’t sure what to expect, we were camping so I was quite worried about that aspect as well. I needn’t have bothered as the accommodation was wonderful and much better than expected all very clean and comfortable. The locals were very friendly and all wanted to chat to you and find out where you were from. We stayed in 3 different places and the diversity of each was like having 3 different holidays.  Firstly by the lake at Naivasha with Hippos keeping you awake in the night.  We saw such a variety of birds.

Ice, Fire and Northern Lights in Iceland

Our two Northern Lights tours are now returned from Iceland where both groups experienced some superb auroral displays. After a couple of days enjoying Reykjavik, Iceland’s small and cosy capital, the groups travelled to the Lake Myvatn in the North of the country which provided dark skies by night and stunning landscape during the days when the group were able to enjoy a range a activities from energetic cross country skiing, skiidoing or volcano hikes to relaxing in the 'Nature Baths' - a huge pool fed by volcanically heated water.
