Masai Mara Escarpment Trek

...what a fabulous time I had on the Masai Mara Escarpment Trek. The open spaces of the Mara with animals everywhere was just stunning! I felt extremely privileged for the opportunity to trek across the escarpment and be in an area unfrequented by tourists...the best travel experience to date!

Spitsbergen & Northeast Greenland Aurora Borealis

The coastline of Greenland is spectacular. With numerous fjords, the coastline consists of breathtaking high mountains, high cliffs and numerous glaciers. The large glaciers produce the huge, cathedral-like ice-bergs that are abundant in the surrounding waters. An area rich in wildlife we hope to see Polar Bear, Walrus, Ringed and Bearded Seals, Musk Oxen along with numerous species of seabirds. Our voyage encompasses the north west coast of Spitsbergen, before heading over to the east coast of Greenland. We hope to enjoy landings at Myggebugten and Blomster Bugtand sail through Kaiser Franz Joseph Fjord as we make our way to Scoresby Sund, Greenland's largest fjord. Further south we travel through the Northwest Fjord before making a stop at Ittoqqortoormiit,the largest settlement in Scoresby Sund, where we have a chance to send postcards and experience local life. Our final day is spent at sea before we arrive in Akureyri in Iceland.
