The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
The word ‘unique’ gets bandied around a lot, however it’s undeniably applicable to Namibia
Highlights of Namibia
Like a geography lesson gone mad, there really is nowhere else like Namibia. Huge and very sparcely populated, it’s a land of extremes. If you are seeking the unusual Namibia is ideal.
Geography: The barren & fog-bound Skeleton Coast, famous for it’s shipwrecks and seal colony, the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, the famously photogenic dunes at Sossusvlei, the vast white expanses and huge skies of Etosha National Park and the world’s second largest canyon, the Fish River Canyon….
The wildlife: Unique desert-adapted wildlife, including mountain zebra, kudu, elephant and lion. The waterholes in all reserves attract large numbers of antelope and elephant creating photographic opportunities like nowhere else. The Etosha area is famous for rhino sightings, both white and black.

Easy to get to, flights from London via Johannesburg. Easy to self-drive, although distances are great so if time is an issue we recommend flying between camps.
