Traditional Cultures – we're very careful and choosy about trips that we recommend which involve visiting traditional cultures, so you'll only find a few listed here. Each is a little gem!

Walking – lots of our trips have options for walking; some simply hiking, others on walking safaris with big game. This section highlights the best of the options in both categories.

Wellbeing
Wellbeing – many of our trips bring, we hope, an element of mental freshness to our travellers; here are a few that can go that little bit further, reaching the parts that others just can't.

Wildlife – as virtually all of our trips have a wildlife elements, this section aims to draw your attention to the best places to see particular animals, and camps that offer particularly good wildlife experiences.

Needless to say – all of these are just ideas; so don't think of them as the only options, or necessarily the perfect options. If you're puzzled, then don't hesitate to contact us to talk to one of our experts about your trip.
