  • A Wild Romance - Wild Kenya

    A Wild Romance - Wild Kenya

    Dawn breaks as the hot air balloon drifts above the straw-coloured plains. The vast savannah of the Maasai Mara is spread out beneath us. Slender-necked giraffes nibble on tree branches and herds of elephants forage in the grass.

    The whoosh of gas burners startles a hippo and the hulking animal runs nimbly into the coffee-coloured river.

    We drift slowly downwards, cruising above thousands of wildebeests that scatter and run in every direction. It’s the stage in the nature cycle that the Maasai Mara National Reserve is famous for, the annual migration. Each year more than two million wildebeest cross the border on an annual journey from Tanzania’s Serengeti to graze in Kenya’s Maasai Mara.

  • Jewels of the Indian Ocean – Sri Lanka

    Jewels of the Indian Ocean – Sri Lanka

    Tanya Joslin discovers the beauty of Sri Lanka … and why it is a perfect destination for couples.

    After more than a quarter century of civil war, peace has returned to ‘the island of serendipity’. And, along with this newfound peace comes tourists–lots of them–much to the delight of the Sri Lankan people who are natural-born hosts. There is so much to do and see in this tiny Indian Ocean country but beware: the driving is often painfully slow. So, unless your plan is to simply unwind on one of the island’s gorgeous beaches, the best way to experience Sri Lanka is to map out a route based around the sites you want to see.  All visitors arrive just outside of Colombo so take advantage of your entry point and explore Sri Lanka’s most cosmopolitan town upon arriving.
