The dimensions of time and space in Bolivia are unlike any other country in South America. The geography changes quickly from challenging highlands, to peaceful valleys, to exuberant tropics, and traveling around the country is like taking a journey back in time.

Discover Undiscovered Madagascar

This month, DISCOVER MADAGASCAR! This huge island country is approximately 400km off the coast of Africa where tourism is still very new. The benefit: An authentic, adventurous travel experience in an undiscovered environment.

Why Madagascar?
 
Unique wildlife: Cut off from mainland for millions of years, the island’s flora and fauna has evolved into unique species, many of which are found nowhere else in the world, the most famous of which are the numerous species of lemurs.

Stunning landscapes: Madagascar has a rich variety of environments. The unreal beauty of the deciduous forests, dense rainforest, white sand beaches and lofty mountains all offer one-of-a-kind landscapes that are a traveler’s dream come true.

Fabulous beaches: Nestled between the Indian Ocean and the Mozambique Channel, Madagascar offers a beautiful array of white sand beaches, azure waters and coral reefs. With the fairly underdeveloped tourism sector, if you wander off the beaten track, you will likely have this paradise all to yourself.

Wild, Exclusive and Ultimate Namibia Safaris

Namibia is a country of extraordinary scenery and endless vistas. It is also an ‘ageless land’; visible through the country’s heritage of rock art created by stone-age artists, and geological attractions such as the petrified forest where fossilized tree trunks have lain for over 280 million years. With these factors and one of the lowest population densities in the world, Namibia gives you a feeling of antiquity, solitude and wilderness.

A safari in Namibia affords you the chance to experience this magnificent and memorable country in a very personal way. There are many different ways to experience Namibia. This month, we are featuring just a few of these: The Ultimate Namibia Safari offers a pretty comprehensive safari with guaranteed, monthly, small group departures, providing excellent value for money. A Fly-in and Private-Guided Safari covers all major Namibia highlights in a short period of time and is a great extension on a South Africa, Botswana or Zimbabwe safari. Journeys Under Canvas offer a true “back to nature” experience with the emphasis being on the experiential aspect of safaris.
