2021 Trips On the Horizon
Tentatively Booked for August 2021- Haida Gwaii Islands Expedition
Venture into the ‘Galapagos of the North’ on this Canadian expedition
Join me on this journey to Canada’s most remote and stunning region on this 8-day expedition. At the heart of this trip is Haida Gwaii – an isolated and wildlife-rich archipelago continuously inhabited by the Haida Nation for over 10,000 years. Discover the beauty of the ‘Galapagos of the North’ and search for ancient totem poles and the remnants of colonial life among evergreen rainforest. In addition to the splendid nature of Haida Gwaii, this takes you on a rare voyage into Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary, where you will cruise through the waters of a protected area very few people are permitted to enter to spot wild grizzlies, seals, sea lions and bald eagles. This trip is a breath of fresh air for nature lovers.
Priced at $3740 plus flights…….for more information see here.….

Planned for 2022
Join me on a combo trip in April to see the tulips and visit Floriade on the way to Botswana. I know- a strange combination, but it makes an excellent combo- a few days in Europe to lessen the jet lag, and then straight to Zimbabwe and Botswana for the wildlife…….
This trip is still under design for the Netherlands segment of the trip, but here is the information on Botswana…..May being an excellent month to visit both Victoria Falls and Botswana.
Discover the wildlife and World Heritage waterways of Botswana.
Containing in its borders the world’s largest salt pans, inland delta and number of elephants, Botswana has plenty to boast about. Taking in also Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls and Namibia’s Zambezi region, this trip celebrates both the natural and cultural highlights of Botswana. Stay in a lodge overlooking a watering hole frequented by elephants. Jump into jeeps and set out on game drives in Chobe National Park. Paddle through the Okavango Delta in a traditional dug-out canoe, and be welcomed into the villages of the Hambukushu and Xwe people. If it’s a diversity of landscapes, wildlife and cultures you’re after, then this is ultimate trip.
This trip is 3* accommodation to keep the costs down, clean but comfortable, as Botswana can be a fairly expensive destination. If this is something that does not appeal to you, then please let me know, as I have other great options at my fingertips!
And in September of 2022, join me on this trip in Eastern Europe…….again, this is a 3* accommodation trip, with travel between the various cities on the train and by private transportation. If interested let me know- this is a September 11th departure, and will be a private group.
The Best of Eastern Europe
From fairytale Czech towns to Budapest, the Pearl of the Danube, experience the unique culture, food, and history of Eastern Europe. This two-week trip through six Eastern European countries offers an intriguing combination of urban centres, village life, and outdoor pursuits. Visit castles, churches, and romantic town squares, indulging in Berlin’s café culture and Prague’s beer.
Again, do let me know if you are interested…..more on this later……
