Whether you love nature, want some excitement on a luxury African Safari Holiday, or simply want to laze around on an exotic Indian Ocean beach, here are 5 destinations which we love and recommend that you put at the top of your list!
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 unique and rare beauty.
It is a country filled with wildlife spotting opportunities of a vast variety, dramatic landscapes and untamed parks, Botswana is definitely one of Africa’s diamonds to add to your travel radar this year.

With volcanoes, rainforests and rivers, and some of the rarest primates in the world, Rwanda is an absolutely stunning destination. Popularly known as ‘The land of 1000 hills’, it is set at altitude and lush green adorns its sweeping slopes before disappearing high into misty peaks.
The bamboo forest of Parc National de Volcans has become a haven for Rwanda’s biggest draw – gorillas. Over half of the world’s mountain gorilla’s live in the Parc, surrounded by five dormant volcanoes, and it was the base of the eminent anthropologist, Dian Fossey’s, work, which was immortalised in Gorillas in the Mist. It is the experience of a lifetime for wildlife enthusiasts to follow in Fossey’s footsteps and trek amongst these graceful giants in their natural habitat.
Chimps and Gorillas is a five-night itinerary in Rwanda, combining a visit to chimps in the Nyungwe National Park and gorillas in the Parc National de Volcans. Both experiences are amazing and not to be missed.
Gorillas in the Wild takes you on a tour of Parc National de Volcans where you can experience a journey through the beautiful terraced hillside that characterises much of Rwanda’s landscape. Climb the base of the awesome Virunga volcanoes.
