Combine premium safaris with African beaches or Arabian cities. 

Botswana’s enchanting landscapes, complemented by superb game reserves and a broad choice of lodging, make it the perfect choice for an authentic African safari. The wetlands of the Okavango Delta and the beautiful Chobe National Park are both must-sees, and it’s also easy to hop over the border into neighbouring countries. 

If you’re after a scenic escape with the benefit of golden sands, winelands and a world-class city, cross into neighbouring South Africa. Victoria Falls is a sure-fire reason to visit Zambia and Zimbabwe, where you’ll also find beautiful wetlands and vast plains. 

Experience the individuality of Dubai and Abu Dhabi on a city stopover in the UAE. You could even spend a couple of nights in Oman; fjords have long been associated with Scandinavia, but book a sunset cruise in this Arab state and you’ll see a whole new side to these natural wonders.

Whichever pairing you go for, and however you choose to spend your time, we’ll help you create your ideal multi-centre experience.
