More great holiday offers

Hi all,

We have some great holiday offers to Pattaya in Thailand, Cairo in Egypt and a great tour of Vietnam this week. Check them out:

I was fortunate enough to go to Vietnam last year and it is a truly amazing place. The people are so open and friendly, which is surprising considering their checkered history. The food is great and there is so much to see and do. I loved Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), it's a mad place with motorcycles all over the place and it is a true challenge just to cross the road!

Cairo is another great place and when I came up to the Pyramids at Giza was pleasantly surprise to see that they didn't disappoint!

Happy travelling!

Pattaya Day and Night

Mark discovered how Thailand’s party resort, Pattaya, is full of excitement and interest, day and night.

“Pattaya is one few parts of Thailand I hadn’t previously visited, so on a recent trip to Bangkok and Phuket I decide to make the short journey across from the capital to see what all the fuss is about! My whole trip to Thailand was only for four nights, so I extended by 24 hours just to get a feel for the place.

Pattaya’s a fairly large place – you’ll often see it described as a city on the beach – and unlike some of Thailand’s other beach resorts such as Phuket or Koh Samui that have their resort areas spread out, Pattaya is all in one location, giving it the feel of a bustling, lively, exciting location.

If you want to chill out and relax on holiday, this place may not be for you, but if you want fun-filled days with water sports, shopping and excursions, and exciting evenings of tasty Thai cuisine and lively nightlife, Pattaya is perfect!

I stayed just to the north of Pattaya’s central area, and this gave me a peaceful base for the daytime but fairly handy access for the nightlife later on. On a return trip I’d choose to stay anywhere from the Hard Rock Café northwards, or in the Cliff area of Pattaya – for me, the most central areas are perhaps a bit too lively, but the great thing with Pattaya is that there’s a location to suit most visitors.

In the afternoon I took a taxi down to Jomtien Beach, Pattaya’s second beach and a more peaceful option to the main beach area. Here, deckchairs sit under umbrellas and beach sellers bring you ice-cold drinks for next to nothing. Behind the beach there are some great small shops and restaurants, perfect for a snack if the heat of the day gets too much.

In the evening I hit central Pattaya, and after a dinner of my favourite Phad Thai (fried noodles, Thai-style) I was in Walking Street, a largely pedestrianised street at the end of the beach that really comes to life after dark. The street is crammed full of bars and clubs, and with loud music and a vibrant buzz, this is the place to be. I don’t think I’d be bringing a young family here, but if you’re in to the party scene elsewhere, Pattaya may just be for you!”

Wildlife from the Great Rift Valley

We’ve just received a wildlife for the last few weeks from Loldia House, an old farmhouse converted and run by Governors Camps, most famous for their wonderful Masai Mara properties. Loldia House is located in the Great Rift Valley, so is ideal for exploring this fascinating part of Kenya.

July and early August brought dry weather and a chilly start to the day with early morning temperatures of as low as 17 degrees centigrade but by mid day temperatures had warmed to between 28 and 30 degrees centigrade with a mild north easterly wind blowing in the afternoons.

With no rain falling since June the grasslands on the ranch are drying out and the lake level has been ping forcing the Hippos to move into the deep waters of Lake Naivasha. There has been lots of animal traffic around the shores of the lake with big herds of waterbuck, eland, zebra and buffalo all grazing along the shoreline.
Birdlife has also been good with nice numbers of white/pink pelicans, terns, spoonbills and gulls being seen in the early mornings from the breakfast table. We have also had big flocks of wattled starlings feeding on the fruiting fig trees in front of the house.
We have had some lovely night game drives with leopard, hippo, Spring hares, Dik Dik, bushbuck, bat eared foxes, jackals and the Genet cats all making an appearance.

Throughout the month large numbers of flamingoes have been seen all around the lake but the number of Pelicans has gone down. The Park is currently home to lots of White Rhinos and the females are currently nursing their young.

The old black Rhino that had disappeared last month has made a re-appearance has relocated to the Croton bushes near the Park's main gate. The park is home to big herds of buffalo, impala, waterbuck, Grants and Thomson Gazelles, large troops of baboon and prides of lion.
We made several trips to Hells gate National Park during the month and enjoyed lovely sightings of Masai Giraffe, herds of buffalo, impala, eland, Cokes Hartebeest, waterbuck, Grants/Thomson Gazelles and warthogs with their young piglets.
