Anyone that loves travel, adventure and excitement and wants to make a positive impact on the world’s amazing wildlife and its environment will not be surprised to find that Africa pulls at your heartstrings and won’t let go. A Kenyan safari is the experience of a lifetime - searching the savannah for elusive big game and swapping stories around the campfire, wondering what might be lurking in the darkness. Those fantasies can be combined with a visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an organisation making a profound difference to endangered species like the elephant and rhino.
If you have ever dreamt of travelling the world to escape the daily pressures of modern life, Vietnam’s Phu Quoc island will make you feel like you’ve discovered a lost paradise. Just fifty kilometres from Vietnam and even closer to the Cambodian coast, it’s the country’s largest island of nearly 600 square kilometres and a population close to eighty thousand; but mass tourism hasn’t yet discovered this mountainous, forested jewel in the Gulf of Thailand.
The tiny riverside town of Pai, located in northern Thailand’s mountainous Mae Hong Son province, nestles in the foothills close to the Burmese border. Set against a backdrop of stunning natural beauty Pai is a small, rural town of only a few thousand people consisting mainly of Thais, foreign tourists and a handful of long term expatriates. It’s a vibrant and interesting mix that has helped shaped Pai into the cultural melting pot that it is today, and into a place that will challenge your assumptions about Thailand.
Imagine for a moment that you are riding a classic motorbike through some of the most stunning scenery in the world. The engine roars as the bike leaps up a steep mountain pass; ahead you can see the snow-capped peaks of the Western Himalayas, and below the lush greens of a peaceful valley. You’ve passed hill forts carved from red sandstone; pilgrimage cities; sand dunes in the sunset and monasteries nestled on the slopes of mountains. It’s a trip you’ll never forget.
Located in Western Nepal in the Gorkha District, the Manaslu region opened in 1991 for trekking and still allows limited numbers of trekkers. The trek leads you to remote part of the country at the border with Tibet. The cultural insight and the splendid sceneries are worth the trip.
Kilimanjaro is a non-technical ascent that requires no mountaineering skills. However, climbing to 5,895m altitude can be very challenging. The ecosystem of Kilimanjaro benefits from two dry seasons, a short dry season from December to January and a long dry season from July to September.
