The Waitukubuli National Trail Clearance and Restoration Project was announced at the Savoy Hotel on the 4th November as the 2018 winner of the British Guild of Travel Writers Tourism Award in the Wider World Category!

This project is specifically aimed at rescuing a valuable nature-based attraction, the Waitukubuli National Trail, and to providing ongoing paid maintenance work for villagers and has so far proven to be very successful in terms of what can be achieved to help the local community and the restoration of the Dominican tourism industry. Our Dominica Volunteer Tourism Package in conjunction with The Tamarind Tree Hotel is part of this initiative and participants have found the experience hugely rewarding and enjoyable. We will therefore continue to offer this programme and more information can be found on our Dominica page.

In 2017, Dominica was devastated by Hurricane Maria, completely destroying the island’s infrastructure, communication systems, forests and homes, and tragically ending the lives of the most vulnerable. The ‘nature island’ of the Caribbean is home to some 70,000 people, all of whom have been severely affected by this disaster, as have Dominica’s natural sites and hiking trails. This was a tropical paradise of 365 rivers and pristine rainforest. It was home to 195 species of fern, 75 kinds of orchid, 50 types of butterflies and 176 species of bird. A few hours after the hurricane struck, most of that was gone, but the island is now recovering and is ready to welcome visitors.

The first Trinidad Solo Travellers Special Offer Group Birdwatching Tour proved to be a resounding success in October 2018. It is an amazing opportunity to stay at the wonderful Asa Wright Nature Centre, to travel with like-minded people at an amazingly low price, and to pay NO single supplement.

Based on this success, we have decided that in the future, October will be Solo Traveller’s month. We will repeat the Asa Wright offer for 2019 with the optional extension in Tobago and also an offer for St Lucia that could be linked with these. We will perhaps include other destinations as well, so keep watching this space and look out for our Newsletter for more news on this.
