We offer exquisite romantic getaways right on our doorstep. If you enjoy barefoot luxury, wide open spaces, clear blue skies and endless beaches, then consider either an African Beach or an Indian Ocean Island destination. With many places to choose from such as Mauritius, Reunion, the romantic Seychelles, the spice island of Zanzibar or Mozambique, the choices are unlimited. These are excellent destinations for honeymoons, romances and conferences.

We tailor make Africa Safaris. Many people hope of witnessing the Migration in the Masai Mara Reserve, Kenya, but only a few get to see this! There is nothing more breathtaking than the vastness of the open plains of the Serengeti, Tanzania and watching the herds gathering in their thousands! Experience absolute opulence in the middle of nowhere in camps that offer 5 star luxury whilst sleeping under the African skies, tented camps with private butlers, hot running water, chandeliers and Persian carpets - what dreams are made of! And if this is not enough you can laze in a private plunge pool, gazing at one of Africa's BIG 5 whilst sipping G&T'S.

Closer by is Namibia with stunning scenery. From the dunes in the desert, to the flamingoes on the salt pans, and the animals in Etosha National Park, there are amazing sights as far as you travel. We arrange tailor-made tours or 4 x 4 guided luxury mobile safaris in Namibia and Botswana where the Okavango Delta is home to an abundant birdlife. There are many luxury camps to choose from before you move on to the majestic Victoria Falls in Zambia.

If you have been to Europe & seen the major tourist sights then consider something more unusual. Stay in a historical Monument or Castle, take a walking tour through Tuscany, travel on some of the old roads to Rome. Whilst in the region join a cookery course in Italy or France. Spend time in quaint villages eating with the locals. If walking is not for you then consider self-drive options, staying at historical castles or villas. Explore the rugged coastline of the Italian & French Rivera's. Europe has the most incredible network of rivers, which offer amazing itineraries for River Cruising. This will allow you to disembark in the middle of some of the most ancient cities that are steeped in history, and waiting to be explored on foot.

If you prefer cruising then consider cruises with a difference - there are tall sailing ships such as the Royal Clipper, luxurious Yachts of Seabourne, Voyages of Discovery for unusual itineraries, expedition trips to unique destinations such as the Arctic to see polar bears or the Antarctic to see Emperor penguins. Whether the vessel is small or large, there is something for everyone and the cruise industry is the fastest growing travel sector worldwide. There are itineraries all year round and all you need is time to explore a new destination somewhere in the world.
