We highlight all that is unique, diverse and authentic about the destinations we offer and particularly focus on holidays for nature lovers, bird watchers and for those of you who would like to go beyond the usual tourist experience.

Our tailor-made itineraries are ideal for the independent traveller, who would like to experience a unique trip away from the crowds but with first-class back-up and services. We personally design every holiday to highlight all that is beautiful, diverse and authentic about the destinations, but with your individual tastes and budget in mind. We know all the best places to stay and people to guide you and can tailor-make an itinerary that is as organised or relaxed as you want it to be.

You might prefer to travel as part of one of our small group tours, which will offer you a cost effective experience and a sense of camaraderie by travelling with like-minded people. These are high quality tours using excellent local guides and have been put together with the same care and attention to detail as all our holidays.
