Island hopping

QuirimbaHow about an island hopping adventure? Gliding through azure ocean to paradise beaches - what could be more blissful? Dhow cruising among Mozambique’s divine Quirimba archipelago is relaxing and exciting in equal measure. The marine life is remarkably undisturbed, and the beaches are divine and often empty.

Take a trip around the colourful Visaya islands and be charmed by the wonderful seascapes and impressive culture, not to mention a chance to spend time with tarsiers and explore the chocolate hills. Romantic and exotic all at once.

Now that’s romance.

The interweaving of culture, food and regional identity is the focus of this trip, which shows off the gastronomic high points of Delhi, Agra, Lucknow and Jaipur before heading south to Kerala where you can further delight your senses on a serene houseboat tour of the backwaters.

Wildlife watching

TanzaniaThe magic of sharing space with rare beasts under the African sun is an unforgettable experience. Delve into the national parks of Tanzania as you tour this magnificent country on safari. Admire the astonishing landscapes and majestic animals of three major safari areas, perhaps witnessing the wildebeest migration if you are lucky (takes place in January or February). To round off the perfect trip, soak up the sun for a few days on the idyllic island of Zanzibar, home to sugary sands and limpid waters.
