Safaris & journeys to do before your die

Ethiopia by Air

Itinerary Inspiration | Extreme remoteness

Ethiopia's environments are inhospitable and their sheer scale unfathomable. A helicopter safari facilitates a breathtaking safari to some of its remotest and most challenging destinations, from the soaring Simien Mountains, to the Danakil Depression which sits below sea level.

True North

Set Departure | Cruising Australia's Kimberley Coastline

A True North cruise blends adventure, exquisite luxury and expert guiding covering thousands of nautical miles aboard one of the world’s finest expedition vessels. This is not cruising in the traditional sense but rather a curated activity-based itinerary, with non-sea days planned in, offering unparalleled access to the stunning coastal environment.

Galapagos with Nat Geo & Lindblad

Itinerary Inspiration | Explore with National Geographic

Experiencing the Galápagos Islands on a National Geographic and Lindblad expedition is an unrivalled ocean adventure. Your journey is crafted to showcase the panoramic Galapagos archipelago and its abundance of wildlife. Each day will deliver an exciting new island to discover and explore.

Migration Madness

Inspiration Itinerary | Tanzania's Serengeti

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is the ultimate safari destination, especially from mid-June to October when the annual wildebeest migration flows into the northern reaches of the park. The perfect safari includes 3 nights at Namiri Plains in the centre of the park, followed by 3 nights at Sayari Camp in the north of the park, close to the Mara River famed for its crocodile infested waters.

North Pole with Poseidon Expeditions

Set Departure | Voyage to the Top of the World

Join a voyage to the top of the world! Poseidon are the leading operators of expeditionary polar cruising and the only operator to reach the North Pole at 90 degrees north since no other vessel ventures this far. Their ice-breaker ship, the nuclear-powered ‘50 Years of Victory’, is the only one of its kind in the world.

Gorillas & Game

Inspiration Itinerary | Primates, Birds & Wildlife

For genuine enthusiasts of all things nature look no further than this variety-packed adventure! Whether you consider yourself to be an 'old hand' when it comes to African safaris or if you have never set foot in it before, Uganda will stand out in your memory for all the right reasons.
