The Americas

Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia | April 2025

The Americas

Celebrated for its colourful history, fascinating customs, and jaw-dropping landscapes it’s easy to see why Bolivia and travel are a match made in heaven. There are wonderful Incan ruins to be explored, yet the Spanish colonisation can still be strongly felt: the “white city” of Sucre is a UNESCO-listed site. The phenomenal Salt Flats are a photographer’s dream and must-do experience in Bolivia. So too is the monumental Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable body of water at 3,800 metres, its waters reflecting the Andes ranges.

Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras | May 2025

The Americas

Four countries… similar, but different. Nicaragua is the largest of the Central American countries by land size. Colonised on the Pacific coast by the Spanish and on the Atlantic coast by the British. Add an African-Caribbean influence with the indigenous peoples and you have a melting pot of cultures. The contra war of the 1980’s caused wide-spread poverty and casualties however more recently, there has been economic growth, albeit very small. The country has a growing tourism industry and now is a good time to visit given tourism is in its infancy and you can experience the genuine culture.

It is an active tour that includes national parks, wildlife, history, trekking, local culture, and much more.

Brazil’s Best | November 2025

The Americas

Brazil is the world’s 5th biggest country in both population and size. It’s even bigger than Australia! It has a diverse natural environment, the most famous being the rainforests of the Amazon Basin, which have a plethora of endemic flora (over 3,500 species) and fauna covering the north and west. Brazil’s people and varied cultures primarily make this country a must-visit destination. While human history dates back 25,000 years with cave paintings found in the protected Serra da Capivara National Park, it is the combination of indigenous, African and Portuguese cultures that make it so vibrant today.
