Antarctic Explorer

Just a belated thank you to World Expeditions for the wonderful trip to the Antarctic my sister and I joined last December. From the first day, it was agreed that 1 day on a plane and 2 1/2 days on a ship was a small price to pay to have the chance to enjoy such an amazing experience. The ship was comfortable and crewed by an excellent staff; the size of the vessel was perfect to allow maximum opportunity for the four dozen or so passengers to enjoy the experience (contrasted to many of the other vessels we saw in port in Ushuaia).
Furthermore, the guides provided were professional, knowledgeable and friendly, adding to the great atmosphere of the journey. Our fellow travellers were an outgoing and welcoming bunch too, which made for a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly commend World Expeditions to anyone as a first rate provider of adventure travel - I can't wait for my next opportunity to try another experience (perhaps Kenya at a quiet moment). My sincere thanks to the team.

Fiji

Fiji

Take an adventure holiday in FIJI with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

The many islands of Fiji are spread around the reef-strewn Koro Sea in the southwest Pacific Ocean. About 100 of over 300 islands are inhabited and range from large mountainous wooded landmasses to coral cays that you can walk across with a few steps. Its population of 720,000 is made up of 45% Indians and 50% native Fijians. The remaining population is made up of Chinese, European, Rotuman and other Pacific islanders. Native Fijians are Melanesians with some Polynesian traits.

The main island of Viti Levu covers 10,388 sq. km. with its highest peak, Mt. Victoria, 1323 metres high. It has 80% of the population and is the major centre for air and sea communication in the southwest Pacific. The Yasawas are a chain of 16 volcanic islands to the north-west of Viti Levu with summits ranging from 229 to 579 metres. The Yasawas are strictly populated by native Fijians.

There are three official languages, Fijian, Hindi and English but there are some 300 communalects (variations) in the Fijian language. English is widespread and most younger people have a good working grasp of English and although some of the older generation may have difficulties speaking, most understand English.
