The Amazon or not to Amazon?

What a perfect end to a breath taking trip.  I’d cruised Lake Titicaca, walked the Inca Trail and seen Machu Picchu in all its glory.  Did I want to go home – no!

After saying goodbye to my group that I had spent the last week with, I joined another group of people who had been travelling on other Adventure Company trips.  There were 12 of us in total, some had been trekking the High Inca Trail others has spent 3 weeks taking in the sights and sounds of Peru.

My Experience of a Cuba Holiday

Ever wondered what a Cuba Holiday would be like? Read this blog from one of our travellers to see their curiosity and what they found exploring Cuba.

"I’d heard so much about this Caribbean Island and was intrigued to find out about the post-revolutionary social structure and couldn’t wait to see the architectural wonders of the pre-revolutionary period. I'd also heard great things about the walking, the waterfalls and the beaches.

India: Exploring the great north/south divide

On my way to India, I never really thought too much about there being a noticeable north/south divide in the Asian country. The UK is renowned for the distinct differences between the two areas, but I was surprised to find a similar situation in India.

Everest Base Camp: Experiencing the real Nepal

We all know the famous saying: "When in Rome, do as the Romans do". I tend to take this pearl of wisdom with me when embarking on any adventure holiday, so when in Nepal, I will endeavour to do as the Nepalese do.

Up in the Clouds

It was finally here, we were packing our 7kg duffle bags, ready to take on the challenge of the Inca Trail.  There was apprehension and anxiety within the group, all of us doing this challenge for different reasons!  Even though we all had gone through the trip notes with a fine tooth comb no one really knew what to expect or what to pack!

South America leaves holidaymakers spoilt for choice

Having been lucky enough to travel to plenty of European holiday hotspots as a kid, I was left with a rather nice dilemma once I started to go abroad on my own. I desperately wanted to broaden my horizons and take in new, exciting cultures that I hadn't come across before, as well as sample breathtaking scenery that you just can't find in Europe. South America seemed to tick all the boxes.

The Taj Mahal - the jewel in India's crown

When you read through the list containing the current Seven Wonders of the World, many people may have a few qualms over some of the landmarks that appear. However, in my opinion, there is no doubt that the Taj Mahal thoroughly deserves its place.

Mount Toubkal trek - just back!

When I told people I was going to trekking to the top of highest mountain in Northern Africa, they almost didn’t believe me. But I have just got back from a trek to the summit of Mount Toubkal in Morocco and have the pics to prove it!

Saadani Elephant Project – Report August 2011

By the beginning of August most of the early burning programme undertaken by rangers is usually finished, with some green shoots already sprouting from the remaining moisture in the ground and the early morning dew. This year the park remained green well into August, with much of the tall grass from last year too green to burn, and many waterholes, which are usually dry by early August, carrying water throughout the month. This had a significant effect on the behaviour of Charlie, our newly collared bull, and the herds with which he moved.

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
