  • Whilst we all currently have some time to dream we thought we would add these stunning destinations to your radar to consider booking for when we are all able to travel again!

    Whether you love nature, want some excitement on a luxury African Safari, or simply want to relax and laze around on an exotic Indian Ocean beach, here are some destinations to provide some inspiration for you on what to put at the top of your list!

     Kenya

    Lazy Lions in Kenya

    If you are a wildlife lover and want a little bit of adventure we highly recommend a Kenyan safari!

    It is the best way to tick off seeing the magnificent ‘big five’ from your bucket list!

    Plus there is no better way to end an adrenalin rushed filled day on an African Safari than with a sundowner in hand whilst the African skies turn a fiery red, orange and pink.

    For a taster why not visit our Social Media pages to see some of our Virtual Safaris and read all about our clients’ experiences!

    Visas: 

    You need a visa to enter Kenya. You can either get a visa on arrival at the airport, or before you travel. You can apply for single entry and transit visas on the evisas website.

    India

    Jodhpur, Rajasthan

    Jodhpur, Rajasthan

    India is the seventh largest country in the world and is also one of the world’s most beautiful countries, and if it’s not already on your bucket list, it definitely should be.

    Many first time visitors to India choose the ‘Golden Triangle’, which is made up of Agra, Delhi, and Jaipur, plus a bit of Rajasthan added on, if time permits. However, there is so much to see in this diverse and spectacular country and we would be able to suggest the perfect itinerary for you.

     Visas:

    You will require an Indian Visa to visit India, (with the exception of citizens of Bhutan and Nepal who do not need a visa). It is essential that you apply for your visa in advance before planning to travel to India.

    The best way is to apply for an online Indian Visa as it is much faster, cheaper, and for ease, gets emailed to you, so all you have to do is print out your visa.

    Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka

    With an array of holiday experiences ranging from relaxing on beautiful golden beaches, hiking amongst the misty mountains, wildlife viewing, immersing yourself in Sri Lanka’s intriguing past, enjoying the delicious tea and cuisine, Sri Lanka should be added to your travel radar!

    Sri Lanka is a relatively small island, and therefore you can pack so much in during a fairly short stay. Whether you are drawn to exploring the ancient Buddhist temples and forts, trekking through the rugged landscapes, visiting some of the numerous tea plantations, enjoying a safari with the possibility of seeing elephants and tigers, or just simply taking the opportunity to relax and soak up the culture, cuisine, and the ever-so-friendly people, speak to us about a bespoke tailor-made holiday that will remain in your memory for years to come.
    Visas:
    Visit the Sri Lanka electronic visa website several days before arriving. Follow the online application process and pay with a credit or debit card. Once approved, print out the visa confirmation.

    Botswana

    Lush and green Botswana

    Botswana may have diamond-rich deserts but it is the shimmer of the Okavango Delta’s crystal clear water, the perplexing perspective of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and the sight of hundreds of majestic elephants in the Chobe National Park that make it a rare beauty. A country of such wild variety, dramatic scenery and untamed parks, Botswana is one of Africa’s diamonds, and one to definitely add to your travel radar.

    Visas:

    British nationals do not need a visa to enter Botswana for stays of up to 90 days.
