Unforgettable experiences for

Active Adventurers

For those who can't sit still

Travel is exhilarating and just the experience of being somewhere exotic tantalises the senses and makes you feel alive. But for the active adventurers among us, that isn’t enough.

You want to feel your heart race as you canoe down the Zambezi, climb Mount Kilimanjaro or quad-bike over the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. You want to trek the Ethiopian Highlands and go fishing for razor-sharp toothed tigerfish in the Lower Zambezi. You want to track endangered species on foot, follow lions on the hunt and sit within a few feet of a silverback mountain gorilla.

Being adventurous doesn’t mean you can’t also be pampered, and so you will be. Mouth-watering culinary experiences, luxury lodges and boutique hideaways are all par for the course for weary action heroes in need of a good night’s rest.

Patagonia for Hikers

Itinerary Inspiration | Two Countries & Two Unreal Hikes

It goes without saying that the Torres del Paine National Park and Mt Fitz Roy are 'meccas' for avid hikers in South America. On this journey spend four nights in each region, with the opportunity to hike and explore both areas at a style, pace, length and duration of your choice, all while staying in comfortable and scenic accommodation.

Great Walk of Africa with Tropical Ice

Set Departure | Kenya Mobile Hiking Safari

This is Africa’s definitive walking safari. Hiking for several days along two of the most beautiful rivers on the continent, which are the home to the biggest elephant herds in Africa, it’s no wonder this trip has been described as ‘the greatest African bush experience on the continent’.

Wild India! With Tropical Ice
