  • Indonesia
  • Italy
  • Tanzania

There is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to honeymoons. Some want pure beachside R&R - and rightly so, we would always recommend some downtime as part of a honeymoon (never underestimate how tired you'll be after the months of preparation and wedmin) - while others want to start…

Taming Tanzania's National Parks

Where to Spot: Chimpanzees

  • Tanzania
  • Rwanda
  • Uganda
  • Africa

We're on a little bit of a BBC Dynasties hype of late, and after Sunday's episode, who can blame us. Getting to know David the Senegalese chimpanzee (no, not our sainted David Attenborough) and his group was every bit as epic as we'd hoped, and we're sure left many of you craving to head out…

Authentic African Adventures

  • Namibia
  • Tanzania
  • South Africa
  • Kenya
  • Uganda

Authenticity: a perennially peddled promise which is rarely truly fulfilled. Yet authenticity is increasingly what we look for in our holiday experiences; the desire to feel like we've seen the real destination; that we've got beneath its skin and seen into its soul. Well, authenticity just…

My Trip to Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Area: Hiking and The Highlands

  • Tanzania
  • Ngorongoro Crater & Northern Tanzania

When you think of Tanzania and its Ngorongoro Crater, which I've just returned from, I am sure that 92% (precise, expert figure here) of those who haven't been before would not immediately associate either with the Scottish Highlands. But believe it or not, the similarities are uncanny.…
