• Five top adventure activities in South Africa

    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.

  • Interview with a travel activist

    Tell us a little bit about yourself.  Who are you? What do you do? What is your favourite animal?
    I’ve been living in South Africa since I was nearly seven, having emigrated from England with my family, so I pretty much call South Africa home. As a 35-year old, I’ve been fortunate enough to do a fair bit of travelling both within South Africa and internationally, and the travel bug has certainly bitten.

  • Camping with kids

    There's two sorts of camping: the dreamy, childhood version where a canopy of stars shines over a warm, open fire while darling babies sleep soundly in their tents. And then there's the reality.

    Camping with kids required the organisational skills of an event planner, and more sanitary wipes than you can fit into the average ocean liner.

  • 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.

  • Oxfam in East Africa: 6 months on

    In 2011, parts of East Africa were affected by the worst food crisis of the 21st century. People suffered prolonged drought and poverty, and were desperately in need of help.

    Oxfam Australia put out a call to everyday Australians, who in turn made donations that helped provide 2.8 million people with humanitarian aid in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia. Your donations helped to provide urgent relief, and develop sustainable solutions to provide food for the future.

    To all the generous donors out there, this video is for you!

  • Why we love it: Mali

    Here's the next in our Why We Love It series. In each of these blogs, we ask a Peregrine team member to tell you about their favourite place in the world. Today's blog has a focus on Mali:

  • Project Luangwa making a splash in Zambia

    Kufunta River Lodge is located in the iconic South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. It overlooks the floodplains of the beautiful Luangwa river and provides game drives into the park.  The park is well known for its leopard populations, large numbers of hippos, plenty of crocodiles and often a good number of lions, giraffe, elephants and buffaloes, especially in the dry season.

  • 5 works of art worth travelling for

    With so many inspiring and influential works of art in galleries, museums, and yes, even caves, around the world, it's no easy task to choose five works of art worth travelling to. But here are some that we think should be on everyone's list.

  • Oxfam: Changing lives in Southern Ethiopia

    Ethiopia is a country where the smiles are as wide as the vast expanses of land. But it's also a country facing crisis.

    Ethiopia used to experience drought every eight years or so, but now it's almost year to year. The situation makes it harder for people to maintain their livelihood. 

    For most Ethiopians, livestock is the main asset, so in times of drought there is no food, no pasture for their animals and no water for the people. 

  • Why we love it: Namibia

    Here's the next in our popular Why We Love It series. Today we are featuring Namibia. This new series features blogs written by passionate Peregrine staff members, on their favourite destinations:

  • Travel trends for the future

    For Peregrine travellers, it's always been important to get off the beaten tourist path and see a destination with the guidance of a local tour leader, allowing them to experience things they may not get the chance to see or do while travelling on their own.

    While this style of travel continues to grow, we are also seeing that travellers wat to immerse themselves even further in local cultures, experiencing even richer and deeper interactions within their chosen destinations.

  • The best souvenir I bought on my travels...

  • 12 Days of Christmas Destinations

    Guest blogger Marissa Cooke thinks there's no better time to plan your next escape than in the countdown to Christmas holidays.

    To help your mind wander (even if you can’t!), she's created her own version of the 12 Days of Christmas. It goes a little something like this…

  • A spin on the traditional family holiday

    We all know there's nothing quite like packing up the kids, bikes, boogie boards and cricket bats for a trip to the beach during summer. But it's not until you've taken a wrong turn, the kids start fighting or you leave the dog at the service station that you remember how much effort it can be.

    So why not try something different and take a family trip where all the hard work is done for you. It shouldn't just be the kids who get to kick back and enjoy the ride. Create some memories together and save your sanity at the same time!
