Top 10 Animal Encounters
On our Handpicked range we bring you the most iconic experiences in destinations where you’ll join travellers from other travel brands on your tour, safari or sailing holiday. Collaborating with our carefully handpicked portfolio of local partners, these holidays represent exceptional value and there’ll be plenty of cultural experiences shared with other like-minded travellers.
Group sizes and accommodation standards vary by destination where typical group size is 28 travellers and hotels, boats and safari lodges are of a 3-4 star standard.
Our Essentials range offers incredible experiences at a great price. You can squeeze the most out of your destination, without worrying about your wallet. As well as guided sightseeing of the key sites, there’s free time to explore independently or take part in optional excursions so you can focus on doing just the things that suit you. We’ve given you the flexibility to eat where you want too, with few meals included so you can save your pennies and eat cheaply all trip or splurge the money you saved on your tour at a fancy restaurant; we won’t judge!
The accommodation on these trips varies by destination. In Egypt, you will stay in comfortable 3-4 star accommodation, whilst in Japan, China and South Korea, we make use of budget-friendly hostels. Transport is by private air-conditioned vehicles, and we also make use of Asia's comprehensive public transport network. With a maximum group size of 40, our Essentials range brings like-minded travellers together for a once in a lifetime holiday. You can find more specific details about each of our Essentials tours on the relevant web page.
With our Overlanding range, we give you amazing adventures, on and off-road, through Africa's most loved destinations. Travelling aboard large, purpose-built trucks, with all the equipment necessary for camping and cooking onboard, overlanding allows you to cover large distances and explore multiple countries in an affordable and fun way. As well as taking in key highlights, our Overland tours are able to get off the beaten track, getting under the skin of the countries you visit.
Whether it's going in search of the Big Five in Africa’s flagship national parks, floating through the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, or scaling the Sossusvlei dunes in Namibia, spend your days enjoying a wide range of exciting activities and camp out each night under a blanket stars.
Group sizes tend to be a little larger on our overland Camping Safaris (with an average of 24), providing a social and fun travel experience with like-minded travellers. Group participation is all part of the experience, helping to set up camp, shop for local produce and cook meals, all creates great camaraderie.
Our Comfort Camping Safaris are slightly different. You won't need to lift a finger, as your experienced three-person crew sets up camp, prepares your meals and cleans up, so you can relax. In addition, you’ll enjoy the comfort of a camp bed rather than a roll mat and travel in a small group (maximum size of 16) escorted by a licensed African guide.
All of our Overlanding tours include a local payment. As well as keeping up front costs down for you, it means that even more of your money stays within the local area. Cost-effective trips and great for the community; can’t be bad!
Our Signature group tours place local interaction and authenticity at the heart of your travel experience.
For our Signature range, we maximize your days with excitement and then bring you home to specially selected accommodation with extra character, convenience and comfort, whether that's a five-star river boat on the Nile or a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Accommodation in this range features comfortable western standards, air-conditioning, WiFi and, where appropriate, a swimming pool.
On a Signature holiday, you’ll be escorted throughout your trip by our qualified English-speaking local guides who’ll show you all the must-see attractions and even the lesser-known sights.To further add to that special touch, the group sizes in our Signature range are mid-sized: small enough to be intimate, but large enough that you can bond with new friends over common interests.
