Planning Your Next Holiday?


It does seem strange to be thinking about your summer holiday for next year, but we do know how difficult it is to find the right accommodation in those popular destinations such as Yellowstone, parts of New Zealand and Namibia. So getting started now could avoid disappointment.


Family travels or keeping the agenda flexible in North America

For those of you that like to keep your agenda and budget flexible, then consider the self drive option in a RV (recreational vehicle or motorhome). North Americans are very used to holidaying in this way which means that the camp sites are well maintained, reasonably priced and very often in the best of locations. The camp sites in the National Parks are the jewel in the crown for places to stay and really reasonably priced – but need booking sooner rather than later. Ask us about the options.


While thinking about the different ways of travel here, we love the Shuswap Lake in Canada, where houseboat rental is a great way to slow down, cruise in scenic surroundings and have fun while there. They come in all sizes so ideal for that romantic twosome to large family gatherings. You can be as active as you like with biking, rock climbing, sailing, snorkelling etc all to hand. Why not gently run your craft up on the beach, put the slide on the back of the boat for all to use and then get the BBQ going on the beach.


Winter Sun

It’s always tricky to choose a winter sun destination, particularly if you do not want to travel too far. A favourite that goes in and out of fashion would be Kenya. It is just eight and half hours flying time to Nairobi and half an hour after passing immigration you could be settling in to your tent in the Nairobi National Park. This is an ideal destination to mix the excitement of wildlife viewing with time on some of the best beaches in the world. Give us a call to find out more.


Stop Press

We have just heard that Qatar Airways will be flying 4 times a week to Windhoek, Namibia as from 28 September 2016. Also KLM are extending their 3 weekly flights to Luanda, Angola to Windhoek. More options and, hopefully, cheaper flights which is great news for one of Africa’s best destinations. Call for fuller details.

Located on the equator, this is a country of snow capped volcanoes, green valleys and steamy jungles and of course the wonderful Galapagos Islands, the archipelago that inspired Charles Darwin in 1835 and continues to amaze every visitor since.

Little Gem of the Month

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of Volcanic Islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean.  The Galapagos Islands and surrounding waters form the Galapagos Province of Ecuador, the Galapagos National Park and the Galapagos Marine Reserve.
The islands are famed for their endemic species that were studied by Charles Darwin.

A visit here may just inspire you to think differently about the world. Most exciting for visitors is the lack of fear and even curiosity with which the Galápagos animals typically regard humans. Incredible, up-close encounters are the norm here.  


Most of the islands are devoid of vegetation and some look more like the moon than Hawaii, so not tropical islands as you may think. The isolated group of volcanic islands and its fragile ecosystem has taken on almost mythological status as a showcase of biodiversity. Yet you don’t have to be an evolutionary biologist or an ornithologist to appreciate one of the few places left on the planet where the human footprint is kept to a minimum.

The islands have two airports, Isla Baltra and Isla San Cristóbal, which have regular flights from mainland cities Quito and Guayaquil.  Accommodation is available on several of the islands, and public boat and plane services allow visitors to move about the archipelago. Experience the Galápagos Islands by small ship cruise or from a land base travelling out by day boat.  Whether your interests are bird watching, diving, snorkeling, surfing, or another activity an appropriate tour option exists.
