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?

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.  

Southern India Surprises

Southern India is a mysterious and magical place to visit and this trip captivated my inner senses.

The tour started in Mahabalipuram a sacred town on the coast on the Bay of Bengal. Here we found an array of fascinating sites to visit, including the splendid Shore Temple.

This area is rich in temples and you will not fail to be impressed by the architectural splendour of the Shore Temple and bass reliefs.

Leaving the cost we headed into the religious heartland of Tamil Nadu.

Realm of the Maya (RM)

This trip starts with four days in Mexico then moves to Guatamala with a 2 day foray into Honduras to see Copan.  This looked the most interesting itinerary of those on offer in this region with beautiful scenery, plentiful wildlife (especially birds) and interesting Sanish Colonial cities in addition to the tour of the major and some interesting minor Mayan sites and we had a great time.

Moroccan Desert Adventure - Nov 2010

From the native Berber guides, Hassan and Ismail, Asthma the camel, campfire tribal songs, our nut and date stops, races up the sand dunes, counting shooting stars in unpolluted night skies, traditional Tagine dishes, making bread in a sand oven, sharing jokes with the camel drivers... learning to tie and wear your headscarves like a Berber, the amazing villages of flat-roofed pisé houses full of smiling faces, mint tea, the tours, the “discussions” and tipping.
