Kenya is the Africa of your imagination. A country of stirring natural beauty, endless open plains, game rich savannahs, flamingo-pink lakes, welcoming tribal cultures and palm-fringed beaches. Visit during the calving season and not only will the weather be hot and dry but expect to see a variety of spectacular wildlife roam among the lush grasslands. The days are hot and the nights are warm, making this high season a popular time for safaris and perfect for diving and snorkelling.
This part of India enjoys its driest months from January - April with pleasantly warm temperatures, making February one of the best times to take to the backwaters of Kerala and soak up its wonderfully slow pace of life. If you’re a lover of wildlife, Kerala is also home to Periyar National Park which is an excellent location to search for elephants and tigers in the wild.
Carnival is celebrated all over Brazil, but head to Rio if you want to soak up what is arguably the brightest, boldest and most extravagant carnival of them all. Celebrated each year, the streets are filled with the sounds and sights of Brazil's vibrant culture, a true testament to its incredible history, fascinating people and contagious party spirit. It's an excellent insight to exploring this energetic country in all its glory.
Burma is an extraordinary and complex land that is steeped in cultural splendour, natural wonder and historical intrigue. Whether you are cruising on the calm waters of Inle Lake, exploring the idyllic temples of Bagan, climbing to the top of Mount Popa or soaking up the views from the pinnacle of Golden Rock – this spiritual and traditional country has so much to offer.
From spectacular mountain peaks and vast glaciers, to rustic estancias and turquoise lakes, Patagonia boasts some of the world’s most dramatic landscapes.

Bursting with magnificent views and endless scope for outdoor adventure, Chile is the ideal choice for both family fun and romantic getaways alike.
