We’ve put our heads together and come up with 12 travel experiences from around the world for the 12 months of 2019. From fly fishing in the Scottish Highlands to dancing with the Mursi tribe in Ethiopia’s Omo Valley…
Indonesia’s Komodo National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site consisting of 29 remote islands, many of which are uninhabited. The small settlements on Komodo and Rinca are some of the few remaining places in the world that are still virtually unaffected by Western influence. Once you touch down in Labuan Baja, you’ll take a short transfer to the harbour to board a luxury sailboat, your base for the next week, enabling you to explore islands and bays that are otherwise inaccessible.
Landing into Oban Airport on the West Coast, you’ll transfer to a five-star hotel set within remote surroundings. A RIB or helicopter will take you to the isles of Mull, Skye, and further still to Uist, to experience the wildest and beautiful regions of the country. You’ll spend a night on a private island, learning how to forage and cook what you find (back up oysters will be at the ready), and you’ll fly fish for Scotland’s most revered fish, the Atlantic salmon. And of course, you can’t leave without a lesson from a master distiller on the country’s most famous produce, whisky.
Conservation is at the heart of much of our work at Pelorus – we recognise the immense importance of conservation in preserving the environments we visit, and the wildlife that depends on it. In this experience, you’ll head out to Kenya to spend time with world-leading conservationists in the vanguard of the efforts to turn the tide on falling populations of rhinos, elephants, lions, and turtles within the country.
