Ticking Off The Travel Bucket List

With so many amazing destinations around the world, it’s difficult to know where to go next. That’s why it’s important to have a five year plan.

  • Create a short list of at least five in no particular order – don’t over think it
  • Identify the best times to visit each destination
  • Sketch out your likely big event for the next five years – think weddings, school changes, big exams, planned operations, retirement!
  • Go back to your list and re-order by preference
  • Take your top pick and fit it into your plan then work through the remainder of your list
  • Hey presto! You have just created your five year ‘tick off the bucket-list’ travel plan
  • Call us to get planning & booking … 01491 575987
  • Take a picture of your plan and share to Instagram tagging @savilerowtravel (that part is optional)

Message from Matt:

The current exchange rate makes early booking for 2021/22 very attractive right now. You could be looking at as much as a 10% saving. And that’s on top of some hefty resort discounts. There really has never been a financially better time to upgrade your flight or resort, stay for a little longer, or squeeze in an extra trip to make up for lost travel last year.

Remember, we offer NO RISK booking terms with only a very small deposit required. If you can’t travel for any reason, we will refund you in full. We can do this because we are fully ATOL bonded and understand the concerns of our much valued clients.

If that’s got you thinking, let’s take a look at some incredible big bucket list trips for 2021/22 …

The Big Family Get Together – Mauritius

Travel Bucket List Mauritius

When you plan a multi-generational family holiday, you need to be sure that everyone is catered for. The children need to be entertained and active, but the adults want some grown-up time too. Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius has it all.

Golfers can tee off at the hotel’s own course, home of the Mauritius Open or or sail across to Le Touessrok’s world-famous 18 holes for more variety. Nature lovers and walkers will love the jungle-coated interior, the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens and the Black River Gorges, Mauritius’ national park. Divers will be delighted by one of the largest unbroken barrier reefs in the world and of course the resorts includes a blissful spa for those who really want to float away.

Younger guests will enjoy the kids club, bike rental, watersports and perhaps even learn to dive or play golf, if their adults will let them join in …

When to visit: Mauritius is warm all year round. Temperatures are in the high 20s and low 30s between November and May, which makes it an ideal Christmas/New Year destination. The rest of the year it’s around 24˚C. There is a wet season, but it’s nowhere near as pronounced as in other countries. January to March experience some rain, but showers tend to be short, sharp and heavier inland than on the coast.

The Big Australia Road Trip

Travel Bucket List Purnululu

Explore waterfalls, gorges, endless outback vistas and unique wildlife in the Kimberley outback as well as world class beaches in Broome and Perth on our two week road trip through the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Begin at the Cable Beach Club in Broome, the gateway to the Kimberley region with stunning beaches and a rich pearl farming history. A short flight takes you to the Kimberley outback, staying at the fantastic El Questro Homestead before heading further into the outback and the breathtaking Purnululu (Bungle Bungle) National Park, pictured above.

As the Kimberley adventure draws to a close enjoy some relaxation and a sunset boat cruise at the stunningly located Lake Argyle Resort. Fly back to Perth and explore the city and the postcard perfect Rottnest Island, pictured below, home to stunning beaches and the Quokka marsupial.

When to visit: To avoid the cooler Australian winter, the best time to visit is September through to May. That said, seasonal changes in this beautiful part of the world mean that it’s a region to visit all year round, depending on whether you want hot sun, or a fresher climate in which to explore.

Spa-lovers will be in heaven at the Six Senses Spa. From soothing scrubs to Tibetan hot stones, guests embark on sensory treatments from near and far. Scuba and free diving, snorkelling, tennis, astronomy and wildlife exploration will keep everyone beautifully occupied.

The Big Five Safari – South Africa

Travel Bucket List Safari

For those who are determined to see The Big 5 in their natural habitat, South Africa’s Sabi Sands is the ideal introduction to luxury safari. Situated in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, Chitwa House is an exclusive use villa which sleeps 4 people.

Sabi Sands is one of the best destinations to see leopards, where these elusive creatures can often be spotted on exhilarating game drives and bush walks – the ultimate way to experience Africa’s most amazing wildlife.

When to visit: The winter season from May to October is the coolest and driest period – especially May to July – and the most comfortable time to go on safari. However November to March sees Antelope herds with young become targets for big cats and wild dogs, making this season a great time of year to witness predator/prey interaction. This is also the time for birders to watch a large number of migratory species.


The Big Madagascan Adventure

Travel Bucket List Lemurs

Something of a travel secret, Madagascar is one of the most incredible destinations on the planet. Largely untouched by mass tourism, it really is an island unlike any other. From cool highlands to white sandy beaches, and desert to rainforest, the diversity of Madagascar is as intriguing as it is undiscovered and extraordinarily different from its African continental neighbours.

Explore the national parks to meet lemur and the fox-like predator the Fossa, the elusive chameleon and a myriad of butterflies. Dive in the crystal clear waters and search for megafauna, humpback whales and manta-rays, creatures that have barely changed since the time dinosaurs roamed the earth.

Stay in beautiful resorts such as Constance Tsarabanjina, go on a Magical Madagascan Adventure or take a Mighty Madagascan Journey across this incredible island to create memories that last forever.

When to visit: Being just below the equator, there is no bad time to visit Madagascar, it really depends on what you want to see. July and August are the coolest and driest months, which make a good climate for exploring and to see migrating Humpback Whales.
