  • 9 Nights Adventure Kenya
    9 Nights Adventure Kenya

    This itinerary is designed for the more adventurous traveller, who prefers to be active and who is willing to forgo the more traditional definition of luxury by staying in lighter, mobile style safari camps. The luxury of this trip is in the exhilaration of being physically active, the remoteness, the mesmerising camp fire and night sounds under a million star sky, the care of the staff hosting by local tribespeople (Samburu and Maasai). Finish each day with a drink as the sun goes down after a piping hot, open air bucket shower and a wholesome freshly prepared meal before falling into a cozy camp bed with full linens and perhaps even a water bottle on cool nights. This safari is a wonderful combination of exercise ( moving on foot although the camp and supplies are carried by camels, cultural interaction in areas that rarely see travellers, and traditional wildlife viewing. The safari is dovetailed by luxury accommodations in Nairobi and the finale is a more traditional wildlife viewing safari in the iconic Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

  • 13 Days Everest Base Camp
    13 Days Everest Base Camp

    A trek to Everest Base Camp is undoubtedly one of the great treks of the world. The Himalaya houses 50 peaks of 7000 metres or above and the Khumbu Valley, which leads up to Everest, is smack bang in the centre of it all. The scenery is absolutely amazing. The trek is 9 nights and 10 days in total with nights pre and post in Kathmandu. We are accommodated in quaint, comfortable tea houses throughout. Our itinerary however differs to the mainstream in that we culminate the trek camping a night at Base Camp itself. We then helicopter back to Kathmandu thereby avoiding a 3 day walk out.

  • 10 Nights Paine Grande "O" Trek
     10 Nights Paine Grande

    This is an amazing trek that traces the circumference (hence it’s name the “O”) of the Paine Grande massif in Patagonia, including the towers, the French Valley and Grey Glacier. It is not for the faint of heart when it comes to trekking. It is moreso for the enthusiastic and well-conditioned trekker. You are accommodated throughout in “refugios” (bunkrooms with shared bathrooms and dining). Your personal gear is carried by a team of porters. For those wanting to stretch themselves and take in the very best of Patagonian trekking then this is a great option.

  • 11 Nights Trekking for Snow Leopards
    11 Nights Trekking for Snow Leopards

    Trekking Snow Leopards is best done in the Ladakh Region of Northern India. The Ladakh region is situated on a high altitude plateau between picturesque mountains formed 45 million years ago when by the folding of the Indian plate into the land mass of Asia. The region is centered around the mighty Indus River that becomes the lifeblood of north western India and Pakistan.

    The trip is concentrated on the snow leopard but equally interesting is the possibility of seeing numerous bird species,several species of wild goats and sheep, Ibex and possibly the Tibetan wolf.

    The trip is not for the faint hearted as it takes a couple of days acclimatization in the ancient city of Leh at 3700metres, after arriving into New Delhi.Many hours are spent scanning through high powered monoscopes and binoculars. The snow leopards as naturally wary of human presence and are very well camouflaged.

    Snow leopards are magnificent animals and once a siting occurs it is not uncommon to sit and observe the animal for several hours with beautifully prepared meals and comforting hot ginger tea or coffee being brought out to the site by the incredible lodge staff.
