Saadani Elephant Project Update

21 September, 2011: Saadani has really come alive the last few months and we are really enjoying being based there.  We collared 3 more elephants and are seeing them pretty much each time we go out.  We have started to recognise each ele and have named them which makes it far more exciting when we are out in the field - the guests absolutely love the interraction with the Saadani elephants and I am absolutely certain that these huge herds

The daunting prospect of tackling the mighty Mount Everest

When people are asked who their greatest heroes are, names such as Pele, Muhammad Ali, John Lennon or even Brad Pitt are normally bandied around. While most of us are fond of sportsmen, actors and musicians, for me, one man stands head and shoulders above the rest. Apa Sherpa.

Peru is already a huge draw for travellers - and it's likely to get bigger

Peru's popularity will only grow as the country continues to invest in key tourism sites like Lake Titicaca.

Peru is a hugely popular tourist destination - and one of the finest places to visit in South America. Whether you're after a little hustle and bustle in the country's capital Lima or a trekking expedition in the mountains - Peru has it all.

Then there's the culture, history and beauty - which adventure holidays travellers are constantly reminded of.

Eid without Mubarak spells the start of a new Egypt

The words tourism and Egypt are never found far apart, but the recent revolution has made even the gutsiest of travellers think twice about booking a trip to the exotic and cultured holiday destination.

As a leading trip provider in the region (and also huge fans of the country) we can completely understand. Although the revolution was peaceful, tensions ran high and the outcome was not always guaranteed to be a bloodless one.

Text messages home from India (Tiger Trails and Taj)

Each night, very probably at great expense, I sent a text home to my extended family to tell them about each day. This now has provided me with a short running commentry about this wonderful holiday and reminds me about how diverse and amazing the experience actually was. These entries are copies of the texts so they are not particularly detailed but were just snapshot postcards home but I hope, in some way, impart how special this holiday was - as this truly was, for me, a holiday of a lifetime.

 

Review of Feluccas & Pyramids family holiday from Phoebe aged 14

What  I really enjoyed was how much we were involved in the history. Ancient Egyptian history could seem quite boring, but our guide involved us in all of it – even making up little plays for us to act in, so we learnt a lot while having a lot of fun! At all the temples and tombs, our guide gave us little facts rather than vast amounts of information. This  was  easier to digest, especially for some of our group who were quite young!

Kilimanjaro makes you feel on top of the world

Having scaled the likes of Ben Nevis and Snowdon, budding mountaineers from the UK are left with little else to achieve within the shores of Great Britain. I think that once these have been mastered, any serious climber worth his or her salt must seriously consider the next natural step to satisfy their need for a challenge.

Fab Botswana!

I've just returned from the South Africa, Botswana, Zambia trip and would not have missed it for the world.

You get the opportunity to see the most amazing animals, landscapes and certainly the most stunning sunsets.

The guides from Sunway Safaris were knowledgeable and hilarious company.

If you are going in July, Aug Sept, then be prepared for really cold mornings and nights. Take warm clothing for the evenings and maorning game drives and you must have a season 3/4 sleepingbag.
