New month, new trips!

It’s been a great start to 2018 so far, and as we edge into to sweet sun-shiny summer months in the UK, a few new destinations have been on our radar, so we thought we’d give you the lowdown on some of our latest new trips… 


1. South Africa Horse Riding & Volunteer Experience

If you’re into your horses, there’s now a hot new riding experience on our books in sunny South Africa. Head on over to the heart of the beautiful Mpumalanga province and stay at an equine lover’s dream, surrounded by gorgeous countryside and horses at every turn. You’ll get to brush up on your horsemanship skills, including stable management as well as riding, help to plan events and hacks, and even get to visit local schools to support community initiatives. During your stay, you’ll even have the opportunity to go on an incredible three-day panoramic Kruger National Park safari and elephant sanctuary excursion.


2. Europe Express

Got 11 days spare this summer and not sure what to do with them? Here’s an idea: why not go on a European travel adventure and see five awesome countries in one trip? Yes, really!

4. Magic of Morocco

Spend ten days getting to know one of North Africa's most alluring and exciting countries on a journey of discovery through Morocco that'll take you full circle from Marrakech, north to Rabat, east to Fes, south to Merzouga, and west back to where you started. You'll get to explore colourful medinas, bustling souks, and spiritual mosques on city visits to Casablanca, Volubilis, and Meknes, stay high up in the Atlas Mountains in Errachidia, ride a camel through the Sahara and camp in the desert, and get a glimpse of ancient worlds from the likes of Aït Ben-Haddou and the Roman ruins of Volubilis. Share the experience with a whole group of travel buddies, and you've got the makings of a magical adventure!


5. Explore Cairns

In the space of a week, you’ll get to try your hand at white water rafting on the Tully River, sea kayaking to Fitzroy Island, you’ll take a hot air balloon flight over the stunning Atherton Tablelands, snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef, bounce around on an ocean trampoline, and get to explore Cairns in your own time, too – what more could you want? 


6. Australia Outback Discovery

Travel Australia’s outback and get a real taste for life in the wild. On our Australia Outback Discovery trip, you’ll spend ten unmissable days taking in the sights and sounds of true Australia, travelling from Alice Springs to Uluru (Ayres Rock) to take in outstanding sunset views and to learn a bit about traditional life in the outback, then you’ll head to Kings Canyon to visit the intriguing Lost City and Garden of Eden and to spend a night sleeping under the stars. From there, you’ll head back to Alice Springs to spend a bit of time exploring at your own pace and then it’s out again to Banka Banka and Mataranka to check out the incredible scenery on the way to Darwin, Kakadu, and Litchfield National Park.


7. Komodo Island Hopping

Take a trip to Indonesia and spend nine magical days discovering the very best of the country’s Komodo culture. This is a real off the beaten track adventure and will take you on a journey of discovery from Lombok to Sumbawa and Moyo Island before embarking on a three-day boat trip spent hopping from one paradise island to the next. You’ll get to swim beneath the waves and discover Indonesia’s colourful underwater delights, trek through some seriously tropical jungle with rewarding viewpoints, as well as enjoy some laidback beach living and of course getting to meet the famous Komodo dragons that reside on the island named after them.
