  • 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!

  • All eyes on Africa - a photographer's guide

    Our expert photographer, Peter Lemon, has just returned from another successful trip to Africa. He gives us some handy hints for taking photos on safari, and also provides some of his favourite snaps:

    Cheetahs often get a hard time from other animals such as lions, hyenas and leopards, who - at the least - will seek to steal their kills. Even jackals can be a major irritant. This cheetah cub had finally had enough of the relentless barking, and sought refuge from the noise a little above ground level.
