  • We send the Royals on holiday

    On Saturday 2 June this year, the Queen will celebrate 60 years on the throne. Celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee are happening right across the UK, culminating in a special event this weekend.

    So when all the ceremonies, parties, soirees, processions and concerts wind up, we figure a few members of the Royal Family could do with a holiday.

    See where we think they should go to shake off the shackles of royal duty and let their hair down (well, those of them who still have hair...ahem, William).

  • A tri-nation celebration: Part 1

    Across cultures and ecosystems, Robert Upe takes a 2000-kilometre road trip through Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.

    There's a thunderclap and in an instant raindrops the size of marbles are pelting down, turning the dusty red Ugandan soil to sticky mud. The storm soaks me faster than I can tie a shoelace.

  • Africa - take a closer look

    There's no place on earth quite like Africa. From wildlife to deserts to mountains and beyond, once Africa has touched your heart she never lets go.

    For many, it's a dream they don't ever intend to fulfil. Price, distance and the sheer other-worldiness means many of us think, "I'd love to go, but probably never will." Well, now is the time. Don't wait any longer.

    Africa is calling. Open your ears and your heart and take the leap. She won't disappoint. Here's a selection of images to inspire you:

  • Timbavati bush school

    Kids are curious by nature. They love to get outside, explore and play in their surroundings. What they might not realise is that they're actually learning about the world around them. 

    At Timbavati bush school, this theory is put into action. Established in 2001, the school invites students from 27 schools in the area to attend a three-day course. This course educates them about conservation and environmental awareness while letting them have fun and explore their surroundings at the same time.

  • An encounter with Rwanda's mountain gorillas

    The walk can be a killer. The hills are steep and you get sweaty. There are stinging nettles and thick brush to scramble through. First you hear an unfamiliar call. Then you see them. Big black blobs in the distance.

  • My Antarctic adventure

    Graeme Bruce is a very lucky man. In 2009 one of his lifelong dreams came true when he won a Peregrine trip to Antarctica. Here's Graeme's story...

  • Life on the ice

    The ice is nice, but it’s the penguins that make the party in Antarctica.

    Gentoo Penguins in particular, a variety found in the warmer extents of Antarctica’s icy edges, kill time on land by stealing pebbles from each other and starting new arguments with their neighbours. Pebbles and stones are the main construction materials for building a nest, but it takes a brave penguin to wander through the rookery and grab a small rock.
