Perfect Places | Priceless Memories

On behalf of all travellers, I think it’s fair to say that we all love the world we live in (or large parts of it at least). Otherwise, we wouldn’t make the effort that we do to have the special travel experiences which we treasure so much. As with many things in life, the things that we could lose forever are normally the ones that we treasure most. Maybe travellers understand this feeling more than most.

Sadly, our world is one of those things – it is changing every day and although a lot of it is for the better – unfortunately, there are some great places that are changing forever for the worse. Before you get sad thinking about this, we hope that this blog shows you that there’s still time to view some of these incredible places before they change forever. Maybe you could even travel to them with your kids, nieces and nephews or grandkids… and if the journey sounds too strenuous or costly, possibly you could talk the next generation into going, so that your family gets to experience the wonder of these great sights before they have changed forever. By doing this you wouldn’t have missed out on some of the best things that planet earth has offered over past millennia. Interestingly, the most famous natural sites that we could think of are dotted all around the globe. This goes to show just how diverse our planet really is and that there are great things to do in every corner of the globe.

Swim in the Great Barrier Reef – Australia
1
We’ve all heard of this beautiful destination and for good reason.  It simply is a huge expanse of incredible sea life that offers unsurpassable snorkelling and scuba diving. Sadly, with the slow but steady rise of ocean levels around the world, large parts of this unbelievable reef are becoming just too deep to sustain the ecosystems as they currently are.

Why not make a once in a lifetime journey to see this wonderful part of the world and you’ll be blown away by how unspoiled it is, how diverse the sea life is and just how large it is – did you know that the Great Barrier Reef is almost 3 times the size of England?! The memories and photos from your trip there will last forever. The stories of your trip that you share with younger generations will inspire them to appreciate nature, and particularly the ocean, as much as you do… teaching them to understand just how amazing parts of it can be.

Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro – Tanzania
2.png
Disclaimer 😉 this isn’t for everyone as climbing the extinct volcano which is called Mt. Kilimanjaro requires at least a moderate level of fitness. Why we’ve included it on this list is because even if we aren’t all fit enough to get to the top, we all know someone who is! 😊

It’s worth visiting Mt. Kilimanjaro now because the glacier found on top of it is slowly shrinking with each passing summer and it will probably be gone completely in the next century. Views from the top of this African landmark will always be awe-inspiring but part of the mountain’s magic has always been its snow and ice which climbers are welcomed by when they reach its highest sections. Let’s hold onto that part of Mt. Kilimanjaro’s history by getting someone to experience it who will, without doubt, remember being on top of a surprisingly cool Africa forever.

Our Package For You:
5 nights from R10 100 per person sharing

See Rhinos – South Africa

Many of us love animals. Their traits and habits, the way they might perceive the world or maybe even the way that they are so distanced from the hustle and bustle of modern life makes many people fascinated by them, especially the rare and unique ones which often pose no threat to us at all. Well, if there was an animal that was the poster child of the prehistoric era it surely would have to be the rhino. This mighty mammal has evolved over millions of years (it once was 5 metres tall and during the last Ice Age rhinos had a thick fur coat!) and thanks to conservation we can still enjoy watching the latest version today! HluhluweImfolozi Park in Kwa-Zulu Natal, the world’s second oldest game reserve, is one of the best places to view both black and white rhinos – sightings of white rhinos are even common there!

To see the rarest rhino of them all, travel to Indonesia to see the Javan rhino. Sadly, there are less than 80 specimens of this incredibly rare mammal left on earth but there is still time for them to be enjoyed. Whether you are in the mood for the beach or the bush, maybe it’s time to see a rhino first-hand?

Our Package For You:
2 nights from R5 950 per person sharing

Valid 16 January – 20 April 2019

Included in your holiday:

  • Return airfare from Lanseria to Durban

Hike through the Amazon Rainforest – Brazil

Nature lovers will love the thought of hiking through the seemingly endless rainforest in Brazil which is known as the Amazon. Although the forest will always be there, many of the largest trees are being removed for timber and some sections of the world-famous forest are being cleared for cattle farming ☹ Today the Amazon rainforest is roughly half the size of Europe! Imagine the mind-blowing species of birds, mammals and insects that can be found in a forest that large.

Why not go on a once in a life time trip to see mother nature in her full glory? Surely there is no place on earth where the air would be fresher 😉

Walk on the Ilulissat Glacier – Greenland
5.png
For those of us that are scared of spiders and snakes, a trip to Greenland might be more appealing! This pristine part of the world is known for unbelievable natural sights like hot springs, beautiful mammals and glaciers. Although Greenland gets very snowy most winters – unfortunately, snow is becoming harder to find in summer than ever before. Some people expect that summers in Greenland will become ice-free by 2050 ☹

Well, there’s still time to walk through this fresh, pristine country to take in its beautiful icy scenery. One of the highlights of a trip to Greenland would be to walk on its most famous glacier, the Ilulissat glacier. This glacier is so remarkable it has even earned UNESCO World Heritage status! So, are you in the mood for some fresh air and fun spent walking through the snow or over thick, slowly moving ice? Well now is the time.

Our Package For You:
5 nights from R23 600 per person sharing

We hope that you’ve enjoyed some of these ideas on how we can enjoy the planet that we live on as much as possible. Maybe some of you will add one of these trips to your bucket list and we hope that it turns out to be one of the best times of your life.

Have fun on your travels, there still are so many amazing places to visit – let’s make the most of it 😊
