Best of Southern Alps Trek

The 6-day Best of Southern Alps Trek is our most popular NZ hiking trip, as well the best alpine trek not featured in any New Zealand guide book. This unique trip showcases the raw splendor of Aoraki Mount Cook and Mount Aspiring in New Zealand's spectacular Southern Alps well away from the more crowded trails. The highlight, an exciting helicopter ride that drops you in some of the most secluded ridges for an incredible hike to the summit of Buchanan Peak (check it out in the video).

If an NZ cycling or walking trip is on your travel bucket-list, check out our exciting range operated by Adventure South NZ.

A dramatic 6 day trekking itinerary providing some of the best walking in New Zealand's Southern Alps. Learn more at http://www.advsouth.co.nz/hiking/Best_of_the_Southern_Alps_Trek.tour

Uganda Gorilla Fly In Safari

Bit of an animal enthusiast? Then you'll love our immersive Uganda safari that takes you to Uganda's rich wildlife teeming with hippos, primate species and endemic birdlife. Track mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to half the world's mountain gorilla population – including the imposing male silverback!

Blessed with volcanic mountains, lush valleys, vast lakes and abundant fauna and flora species, Uganda packs a lot into a relatively small country of Africa.

Maldives Dhoni Cruise

Cruise the tranquil waters of the Maldives on a traditional dhoni boat and unwind on some of the most beautiful tranquil beaches in the world.

Swim, snorkel and cruise between islands in crystal, turquoise waters that beautiful coral reefs and marine life call home; while at night moore off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts. Plus, savour deliciously fresh cuisines that's been specially prepared by your very own personal chef! It truly is a paradise holiday.
