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…
South East Asia is a land of diversity, and while all of the countries in the region might share some key characteristics, such as rich histories, delicious food and idyllic beaches, the differences are strong and fascinating, making it the world’s most famous and well travelled backpacker haven.
Cambodia shines brightly as one of the regions most exciting areas to explore. Its citizens have been through, and are still going through, a lot, but this is a country of enormous spirit and resilience, along with some of the biggest characters you could wish to meet.
Cambodia will get under your skin, there’s no doubt about that, and the best thing you can do is buckle up and enjoy the crazy ride.
I’m just going to put this out there: Costa Rica has it all. It’s home to beautiful Caribbean beaches (some of the best in the whole of Latin America), lush rainforests, national parks bursting with towering volcanoes, a selection of the world’s most exciting wildlife (toucans, jaguar, sea turtles, oh my!), and more adrenaline sports that you can shake a stick it.
See? I wasn’t exaggerating.
This country’s diverse beauty and nature need to be celebrated. In fact, it seems only fair to slap Central America’s little gem with a big High Five. As if you needed any more convincing, here are five reasons to put Costa Rica at the top of your travel wish list.
This guy is just one reason to pay Costa Rica a visit
