Tour and Beach holiday ideas

Hi fellow travelers,

Where has a week gone, time just flies by, time for another newsletter. This week we are focusing on some great Tour and Beach holidays :

We have some great ideas to Tanzania , Sri Lanka , Cuba and Thailand. All are simply amazing destinations and a tour is a great way to see pretty much everything they have to offer.

Last year I went on safari in Tanzania and it was amazing. I did our 5 night Sopa Serengeti Safari which was simply amazing. We saw tons of wildlife with the highlight being seeing the elusive Leopard, and we managed to see 2....amazing. OK there were some early starts, but boy was it worth it. The benefit of many of the safaris we offer is that they visit different game / national parks so you get to see a wide range of wildlife....which after all is why you are in Tanzania!

Or Sri Lanka is a great place for a tour. The country has so much to offer from amazing culture, history and some of the nicest people you will ever meet. I was in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago and loved it and only did a short tour, but it was an experience not to be missed.

As with all our tours there is always the option to chil out on a stunning beach afterwards. Make 2010 your year to tour an amazing destination!

Happy travelling!

Favourite Hotels in Zanzibar, Tanzania

Hi fellow travellers,

This week we've been looking at our favourite hotels in Zanzibar :

I have been fortunate enough to visit Zanzibar a few time and every time have been totally amazed by it's beauty and charm. Zanzibar is a perfect place for a total break, total relaxation in quality accommodation, with good service and the most stunning of settings!

Zanzibar has a great range of beach hotels and the following are just a couple of my personal favourite:

The beautiful Planhotel Neptune Pwani is a stunning property set right on a stunning stretch of beach. The hotel has a great range of facilities include a huge swimming pool with a great swim up bar, spacious lush gardens and many eating and drinking options. The rooms are large and spacious and well furnished. The Planhotel Neptune Pwani is a great all-round options for families, couples and groups alike, with a great all inclusive package.

In complete contrast to the Neptune Pwani is the Pongwe Beach Hotel. The Pongwe Beach Hotel is a totally chilled out hotel and though not great on facilities is set on an amazing beach with simple bungalows set on or only a few steps away from the stunning white sands. The Pongwe is a romantic hideaway, fantastic for an amazing honeymoon!

For the ultimate luxury in Zanzibar, then the Planhotel Dream of Zanzibar is for you. This new hotel is of a great standard with a superior level of service and beautifully appointed rooms.

If you do make it to Zanzibar then Stone Town is well worth a visit, or even worth staying for a day or two!

If Zanzibar isn't for you then check out the other great destinations we feature:

How about a safari first..... just a thought!

What ever you decide to do, happy travelling!
