Botswana 2022/23: Magotho – Khwai

Magotho Campsite is located 20 kilometres east of the Khwai Village. The campsite is situated along the main Moremi – Savuti Road. The campsite derives its name from the Setswana of Camel-thorn, these threes provide shade to the campsites. The campsite is basic and true self drive 4×4 Africa adventure. However, it has recently undergone refurbishment and there are now clean ablution blocks and extended spacious camp sites with braai areas. Just wild camping between the trees and the roaming wildlife. We recommend to bring sufficient water and food.

Magotho Campsite is a great campsite to experience wildlife. It is great hearing the sounds of the animals in the night and it is not unusual to see some animals on the campsite. An amazing experience!

UK: Scotland – Torridon

This is one of the most stunning parts of the North Coast 500. The Torridon is set in 58 acres of parkland at the end of a magnificent sea loch, The Torridon has one of the most spectacular and idyllic locations in the country. The area is superb for hiking, kayaking, fishing and mountain biking. Beinn Alligin means the Mountain of Beauty or Jeweled Mountain – and it lives up to the name offering one of the Torridon ridge traverses, with spectacular views and stunning terrain. It includes a traverse of the Horns, which offer reasonably straightforward summer scrambling. Challenging but worth every step (in good weather!).

Arctic Cruise: Day 1

The word Antarctica comes from the Greek language, antarktikos, which means “opposite to the Arctic”. In turn, Arctic comes from the Greek word arktikos, which means “of the bear”, in reference to the northern constellation called Osa Menor, in which is the Polar Star, which marks the North Pole.
An Arctic Expedition was a bucket list dream come true! Sadly our rustic Photographic Expedition Ship was delayed on a final inspection at the last minute so we were forced to switch to a Luxury Cruise with Ponant, the only other vessel sailing in the same timeframe. ‘The scenery in this part of the world is simply spectacular. Icebergs, sea ice and volcanic mountain landscapes extend as far as the eye can see. And amidst it all roams the polar bear, king of the Arctic, in complete peace and tranquillity. To take an Arctic cruise is to allow yourself to be transported to a world where man is simply a spectator and nature reigns supreme.’
