Outdoor Activity Holidays
If you're anything like us, getting soaked to the skin on a white water rafting trip down the Zambezi or thundering across the Argentine Pampas on horseback will be your idea of heaven. How about running the Safaricom Marathon alongside rhino and giraffe through one of the world's most beautiful wildlife havens, crewing your own yacht on an island hopping jaunt in the Agean, or exploring a glacial cave in Iceland? If that sounds like heart-thumping good fun, do we have some ideas for you...
We have itineraries where you can include stargazing experiences across the globe including Jordan, Alberta, Portugal and Chile, that work with world-renowned astronomers using telescopes and observation platforms that scope the night sky. Or if you want something more relaxed but just as starry, you can camp out under the stars for the night or enjoy a dinner deep in the desert with them twinkling above you.
If you enjoy a bit of sport during your holiday, we can take you to some of the best locations in the world for indulging in your favourite sport, and make arrangements regarding the equipment you need so you can get started straightaway. You could take your family somewhere where you can play golf with a sparkling ocean view, or perhaps you’d like to arrange a boys’ weekend on the golf course, somewhere you can also enjoy spectacular scenery, fine dining and perhaps a beach club too. Whether you want sports to be the sole focus or simply one feature of your holiday, we can tailor your holiday to suit.
Hitting a tennis ball in the sunshine, we can take you to some of the best locations in the world for indulging in your favourite sport, and make arrangements regarding the equipment you need so you can get started straightaway. Whether you want sports to be the sole focus or simply one feature of your holiday, we can tailor your holiday to suit.
