Sat on Africa’s southwest coast, Namibia is a beautiful country renowned for its amazing wildlife and awe-inspiring natural beauty. One of the best ways to see this fascinating place is on safari holidays, which take you on an adventure to both the popular spots and hidden gems. As you head out in your 4×4, you’ll have the opportunity to spot wildlife in their natural habitat, including black rhinos, elephants, lions and cheetahs. It’s the ultimate destination for animal lovers!


This magical country has a huge variety of beautiful landscapes to explore. In the north you’ll find the tropical Daintree rainforest packed full of luscious vegetation and wildlife, while inland areas are characterised by vast dry deserts known as the “Outback”, where terracotta coloured dirt roads stretch as far as the eye can see. The east is famous for its long stretches of golden sand, bright blue waters and buzzing cities, and the south boasts luscious vineyards like the Barossa valley. There is so much to do and see here that you’ll be spoilt for choice.


Bright and full of life, Thailand is a truly vibrant country that offers something for everyone. Those that love exploring cities should head to the famous capital Bangkok. It’s truly a party for the senses, with bright lights, bustling streets, beautiful temples and a whole host of places to grab a tasty treat. If you prefer to kick back and relax on the beach, then the islands may be your preferred spot, where you can sink your toes into long stretches of sand. There are also plenty of dense jungles to discover, where you might just spot native monkeys jumping through the trees.


There’s certainly no shortage of things to do in the wonderful country of Japan. Immerse yourself in Japanese culture by visiting a monastery, watching geishas dance and enjoying a traditional tea ceremony. Nature lovers will rejoice at the breath-taking mountain scenery, waterfalls and world-class beaches, as well as the famous spring blossom. While city slickers can explore the bright lights of Tokyo – where modern and traditional architecture meet. In this famous city, there is plenty of fantastic restaurants, bars, art galleries, sumo tournaments and more to enjoy.
