The Adventure Holiday business is booming, and it’s easy to see why – the excitement and variety on offer is truly amazing, from cruising in polar waters, to climbing in the Himalaya or exploring the ancient cultures of Peru.

It doesn’t have to be far away – there’s plenty of adventure on offer in Europe too, and it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable, as there’s more and more options to do it in style.

At Travelwise, this is one of our specialities, and two of our staff have been involved with Adventure Travel for 20 years or more. Safari holidays are a class in themselves. We usually think of Eastern or Southern Africa for a safari, and there’s no doubt that the great parks or Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa offer some of the best wildlife viewing in the world, as well as a whole variety of places to stay – from sumptuous, luxury lodges to excellent campsites.

But don’t limit your horizons – there’s an incredible variety of other safaris on offer – gorilla tracking in Uganda, tigers in India, jaguars and a host of other creatures in Brazil, to name but a few. Bored with the beach? – try an Adventure holiday and come back feeling fit and refreshed.
