Idyllic Destinations

We have showcased some of the places we know best and love the most.

Southern Africa

Southern Africa, with fantastic landscapes of mountains, deserts, bush and forests, with the iconic Victoria Falls, with some of the best safaris in the world to be had in several different countries, with magnificent beaches and with fascinating history and prehistory, truly has lots for everyone.  Cape Town , South Africa's "mother city", is deservedly one of the world's favourite holliday destinations.

East Africa

East Africa is the traditional safari destination, and still an outstanding one. There are incredible primates to be seen in East Africa and of course there are beaches in idyllic Zanzibar!

The Indian Ocean Islands

The Indian Ocean islands rival any beach destination anywhere in the world for sheer beauty, for the luxury, service and wealth of activities available. And don't forget the unique natural paradise of Madagascar and the French gem of Reunion.


Canada is a fabulous destination. It has some of the most exciting, innovative and beautiful cities in the world, It has the vast, majestic Rockies, with towering mountains and exquisite turquoise lakes. It has exciting wildlife, exhilirating action opportunities, including superb winter sports and an incredible number and variety of things to do. And it is safe, organised, friendly and easy to get around!


Whether as a stopover en route to somewhere else or as a destination on their own, Dubai, Qatar and Abu Dhabi offer a fascinating insight into what can be achieved with almost unlimited resources of oil wealth and ingenuity. They also offer great beaches and fun things to do.

The Caribbean

The Caribbean is the traditional beach playground for people from the UK. With ideal weather conditions, warm water, powder sand, superb snorkelling and scuba-diving, all sorts of water sports and any number of other exciting holiday activities, it is an absolutely fantastic destination. It is specially good for golfers. It was in Jamaica that the concept of all inclusive resorts was first developed, and it is very strong throughout the Caribbean still.

Other Places and Combinations

There is no reason why we should not put together a holiday that combines these destinations, or in fact combines them with others. We have access to all the information, all the expertise and all the suppliers to put together a holiday anywhere in the world, so if there is anywhere you want to go that is not on these pages, just ask us about it.

Long Haul Flights And Carbon Footprint

Many of our customers are very concerned about the impact of long haul flights on global warming. We are too. Take a look at our Sustainable Travel page to see what we do about it.

But we also know that the economies and the ecologies of the places we fly to really need tourists. If we all stop flying millions of people will lose their jobs. Communities will face catastrophic poverty. The protection of natural wild places and will animals will break down and the consequences for the loss of animal and bird species will be unimaginable. On the other hand, we can and do offset the impact of carbon generated by long haul flights by tree planting and other carbon offset projects.

We work with our suppliers, wherever possible, to see that long haul flight carbon emissions are offset. If you would like more information on this please ask us.

We would love to help you plan and experience the holiday of a lifetime.
