You are a… Bare Grylls

Quite frankly, you think Mr Grylls is a bit of a wimp – after all, he does everything wearing the latest hi-tec performance clothing

Try these on for size...

View over Kalaharis

The Kalahari & Makgadikgadi Pans

Botswana's Kalahari is a semi-arid desert and the most species rich in the world.

The Peruvian Amazon

The Peruvian Amazon

Whether you stay in a lodge or cruise the Amazon's tributaries on a boat, the wildlife-packed rainforest is unforgettable.

Infant Orangutan

Borneo

One of the most alluring destinations in the Far East, the island of Borneo offers an unparalleled diversity of activities and cultures, and is a destination in its own right, even when not combined with mainland Malaysia.

Tribe in Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is pretty much as close as you can get to frontier travel in this day and age.

Andaman Islands

Andaman Islands

Pristine diving + snorkelling elephants + indigenous tribes = one of the world's most original destinations.

Flores & Komodo

Flores & Komodo

Bali and Lombok nab most of the tourist trade in Indonesia, but as more and more travellers appreciate this truly beautiful destination, they are exploring further afield. Java was the first wider foray and now, hard on Javanese heels, come the twin island gems of Flores and Komodo.

The Tomb of the Prophet Bin Ali in Oman

Salalah & the Empty Quarter

Of Wilfred Thesiger fame, this is desert as it should be, with soaring dunes as far as the eye can see.

South Hamer People in Ethiopia

Southern Ethiopia

Bale Mountains Nation Park (Bale is pronounced ‘bali’) is often over-looked in favour of the Simien Mountains in the north, but a new lodge means this beautiful region – home to 60% of the world’s rarest carnivore, the Ethiopian wolf - is now firmly on the map.

Glacier Ice Trekking

Glacier Ice Trekking

Southern Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park stretches parallel to the Andes for over 120 miles, its most famous members being the Perito Moreno, Upsala and Onelli.

Running in Mallorca

Running in Mallorca

‘Running’ and ‘mountains’ might not be two words you want featured in the same sentence, but the island of Mallorca has some of the finest mountain scenery, and trails on which to explore them, anywhere in the Mediterranean region.

 Caving in Belize

Caving in Belize

Not only do the caves in Belize offer a wide range of activities they are also of historical significance, as many of the caves were important Mayan ceremonial sites.

Via Ferrata, Dolomites: Walking Holidays in Italy

Via Ferrata, Dolomites: Walking Holidays in Italy

Not recommended for anyone with vertigo, the Via Ferrata in the Dolomites, consisting of iron wrung ladders, footpaths and rope bridges, are an exhilarating series of routes that allow non-mountaineers to experience the higher peaks and most dramatic scenery of this most beautiful of mountain ranges.
