• All your South East Asia questions answered - with expert Stu Lyall

    We recently held another successful Facebook Q&A session. This time the topic was South East Asia, with our resident expert, Stuart Lyall. 

    Keep an eye out for future Q&A sessions on other destinations by liking us on Facebook, and have your questions handy. Or perhaps you could even offer advice to other travellers. We love to hear from the Peregrine community!

    Here is a summary of the chat:

  • 5 packing essentials for the Kokoda track

    Antonina Indomenico is a tourism student doing some work experience in the Peregrine office.

    There are a few essentials that should be at the top of everyone’s list when packing for their Kokoda track journey. They include:

  • Food on safari: What we ate

    Washington (or Washy, as we came to call him), was the cook on my recent Peregrine trip to Botswana.

  • Top 5 things to see in Laos

    Antonina Indomenico is a tourism student who is doing work experience here at the Peregrine office. 

    Laos is a magical country of natural beauty and wonder, intense religion, smiling friendly locals, ancient history and magnificent temples.

  • Family holiday tips for Vietnam

    If you're looking for a great family destination where kids are welcomed with open arms, you can't go past Vietnam.

    Here are just some of the reasons Vietnam is such a fantastic, family-friendly destination:

  • 58 countries and counting: One family's quest for adventure!

    David Gibbons is a single dad devoted to showing his two boys, Sam (aged 16) and Harry (14), the most spectacular places on earth. The Gibbons’ are frequent Peregrine travellers and together they’ve conquered over 58 countries!

    For their most recent trip, the Gibbons' went on the 7-day Galapagos Encounter.

    Who chose the Galapagos as your next family destination, and what were the reasons?

  • Recipe: Som Tum (Green Papaya Salad)

    This is a really popular little dish from Northeastern Thailand, and goes brilliantly with some barbecued chicken and sticky rice.

    Head to Thailand and you can get this from almost any street hawker, each with their own little twists and variations.

    Have all the ingredients ready before you start. And don't forget to taste as you go. Som tum is a very personal thing, which is why only one serving is prepared at a time.

  • Lessons we can learn from animals

    I've just returned home from the Peregrine Botswana in Depth (Reverse) trip, where I had the chance to study a lot of wildlife in their natural habitat.

    Our incredible local leader, Spokes, has a true affinity for all animals. With every species we saw, he had a fascinating story to tell about how each group functions in the wild.

  • Coxy's big Q&A session: The Arctic

    On July 28 we were lucky enough to have Coxy from Coxy's Big Break visit the offices, to conduct an Antarctica Q&A session with our Facebook fans.

    Below are a few of the questions he was asked. If you'd like to see the entire session, simply "Like" our Facebook page.
