Overland Track

Both Victor & Matt were extremely knowledgeable of the local area, the trail, the environment (plants & animals) as well as being good fun to spend time with. It was impressive that the food was fresh throughout the trip, deliciously cooked & it catered for vegetarian and gluten free diets within the group. Our bedding was warm & comfortable and we are already looking forward to returning to Tassie!

Assam, Nagaland & The Hornbill Festival

Assam and Nagaland are amongst the least explored destinations in India. On this journey we discover the highlights of Assam and explore the unique culture of Nagaland. We explore the tribal villages and tea gardens, enjoy sightings of one horned rhinos and a boat cruise on the Brahmaputra River to Majuli Island, the largest inhabited river island in the world, where we visit famous Hindu monasteries. We then cross into the forbidden Nagaland where we encounter traditional Naga tribes. The highlight of our journey is our time spent at the Hornbill Festival where we witness the traditional dance and songs of the colourful Naga communities. There are great photographic opportunities on this journey as we immerse ourselves in a little known culture dating back to the early 13th Century when the Ahom Kings travelled from Thailand through northern Myanmar to settle in Assam.
