Another Friday means another opportunity to ask our Travel Experts your burning travel questions. If you want to put your own question to Claire or Amy, send them an email now and they’ll answer for you right here on the blog soon.
But, for now, it’s back to this week and a question sent in from Danny in Cardiff, go for it Danny…
I’m a massive football fan, any trips you can recommend where I can incorporate sport and travel? Danny, Cardiff
Great question! There are a number of ways in which you can combine travel and sport, so let’s see what Claire suggests for you…
Cape Town is beautiful and the perfect place to combine travel and sport.
Iiiiiiiiiit’s Friday! And that means one thing here at STA Travel… It’s Ask the Experts time! This week Amy from STA Travel Vicar Lane steps up to take the spotlight once again, to answer one of your travel questions.
If you’d like Amy, or Claire to have a go at answering that travel question that’s been puzzling you for ages, get in touch and we’ll test them with it right here on the blog soon. But, back to this week and Anthony from Wigan is here with a question about his gap year in Africa, hit us with it Anthony…
I’m thinking of taking a gap year in 2014 and going to Africa but it’s such a big place and I have no idea where to start with planning. Could you advise on things I could do to make my year away special? Anthony, Wigan.
Yowza, that’s a doozy, but we’ve not found anything that’s stumped our Experts yet, I’m confident they’ll knock this one out of the park. Let’s see what ideas Amy has for you Anthony…
The African Serengeti.
It would be hard to find somewhere that encompasses the spirit of Africa in the same way as Kenya. It’s a very raw example of many of the things that make Africa so amazing.
You can expect huge, green plains, buzzing with life and nature, traditional African warriors hunting and spear fishing, and cities full of people, all buzzing through the busy, congested streets.
If you want to experience an interesting and all encompassing mix of rural, urban, traditional and modern Africa, then Kenya is the place to go.
Home to every element that makes Africa such a monumentally epic place to visit, including daunting trekking adventures through deserted landscapes, rural villages and some of the largest and most captivating wildlife to be found anywhere in the world. Tanzania is one of the continent’s most visited countries, and for good reason.
Whatever your idea of an amazing trip, Tanzania will make sure you’re not left disappointed. Pristine beaches meet some of the clearest most spectacular water you’re ever likely to see, huge, wild animals roam freely and local people live as simply as they did thousands of years ago. It’s a place that will grab you by the shoulders and shake you up, and you’ll love it!
The beaches of Zanzibar are some of the most pristine in the world.
Our super Travel Experts Amy and Claire are here again this week to help another, slightly perplexed, blog reader out with their most head scratching travel question.
This week Abbie from Taunton has sent us this message asking for help choosing which amazing volunteering with animals experience our Experts would reccommend…
Hi Experts, I’m really interested in volunteering, I’m not leaning towards any particular country, all I know is that I’d love to work with animals but there are so many options! What would you do and why? Abbie, Taunton
If you’ve got a question for the Experts send it over now and we’ll pitch it to them as soon as we can to help you get things straight. But for now let’s see what advice Amy and Claire have up their sleeve for Abbie…
