With the announcement of Peregrine's new Algeria itinerary, Peregrine Middle East and North Africa Destination Manager, Pete Miers, elaborates on what makes this country such a unique destination.
Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.
It’s impossible to describe the feeling of coming face to face with a gorilla. It’s heart-stopping, exhilarating, emotional, overwhelming and completely unforgettable. They’re as curious about us as we are about them.
And with Peregrine, you can be assured that we respect these majestic animals and keep our impact on their environment to a minimum. You’ll feel blessed to spend even a moment in their company.
Take a second look
It’s a big, vast grand canyon. But it’s not THE Grand Canyon. Take a closer look and you’ll see this is Fish River Canyon in Namibia. Its enormous ravine runs 160km long and up to 27km wide, making it the second largest canyon in the world.
You’ll feel like you’re standing on the edge of the earth, and in some ways, I guess, you are.
Blazing sunsets, rolling sand dunes, smiling faces and some of the world's best wildlife - you can see it all on our 19-day Delta, Dunes and Falls trip.
Our PR expert Jane has just returned from this very trip, and we wanted to share some of her favourite images. Often it can be hard to put an African experience into words, because it is truly one of the most incredible places on earth.
Who doesn't love a baby elephant? They're saggy, baggy, floppy, funny little things that instantly make you go "Awwwww".
So imagine my delight while on safari in Botswana I saw a baby elephant taking (what we presumed was) his first swim. We'd seen loads of elephants over the previous week but I never grew tired of watching them. So big yet so graceful, so destructive yet so gentle; and always, always eating.
More than 60 million girls around the world don’t attend school. This is an alarming statistic, but it doesn't have to be this way.
One Girl focuses on empowering women and girls in Sierra Leone to create change in their communities. It believes that education and economic empowerment are the tools that will help women tackle the issues they face.
A recent fundraiser was held with the aim of raising enough money to send 150 girls back to school and build a classroom in an overcrowded high school.
Ethiopia is a place of great diversity, from rolling mountain ranges to lakes teeming with wildlife and some of the world's most incredible churches.

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).

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.
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:
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.
For most people, boarding a plane to South Africa is adventure enough. After all, if you believe all you hear about our beautiful country, you’ll be running from lions in the streets, dodging bullets in your hotels and (for the men) holding on to your tackle in case someone decides to steal it. Yes, South Africa is one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
