Our Sri Lankan elephant safari was awe-inspiring

I had never really considered Sri Lanka as a safari holiday destination before, but I was reliably informed by a friend of mine that it is one of the best places in the world to see rare creatures in a paradise-like setting. First and foremost, the island is stunningly beautiful and the favourable climate is also a major attraction.

Would be great to hear from anyone who is booked on the Tatras Winter Adventure (8 days) - Slovakia - Starting 12th February 2012.  Hayley :-)

Arabian Nights

Lying in the sand outside our camp for the night, gazing up at the sky searching for shooting stars, I was handed a small stone-like object. This Wadi Rum rock is like something from space we agreed. It was the lightest little stone I’d ever touched and I handed it around the group. Rob was not convinced however and shone his torch on my pebble. ‘No, that’s definitely faecal matter’ Rob declared. It seemed we had been lying next to a pile of dried camel droppings.

Visit Vietnam for a real family adventure

Searching for the ideal place to take a family holiday really doesn't need to be stressful, well it isn't in my household anyway. Both my partner and I had always dreamt of spending a few weeks in the beautiful country that is Vietnam, so at least we were always singing from the same hymn sheet.

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.

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!

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.

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.
