We are delighted to offer details of our 2017 tours with a limited selection of our handpicked Garden Tours to Italy, France and South Africa to which we add our Natural History Tours to Northern and Southern Africa.
Our ever popular tour to the Italian Lakes of Como and Maggiore in April is followed in May by our Secret Gardens of Venice and the Veneto. Autumn tours are to the stunning private gardens in Provence for which we have chosen the exceptional Hotel La Mirande in Avignon as our base. Gardens of Eastern Sicily is one of our favourites with gardens featured recently in Country Life. The Western Cape in South Africa in late October has superb gardens and we add conservation reserves in the hinterland to the programme.
Namibia has much to offer. It is a safe country with sustainable tourism ensuring a chance to discover both wildlife and flora in secluded areas. We offer both Northern Namibia, Botswana and the Okavango Delta in the green season of March. The deserts, Sossusvlei dunes and canyons in Southern Namibia in November plus our new destination to the remote regions of the Skeleton Coast in North West Namibia.
Morocco is fascinating. We discover the Atlas mountains, the lush Draa valley and the Sahara dunes in April. An innovative itinerary including desert flora, geology and another way of life.
In 2017, a landmark year, we celebrate twenty years of garden and natural history travel, a success due to tailor-made itineraries and careful attention to detail. We are expanding our bespoke itineraries for private groups of friends and horticultural societies to various destinations within our repertoire.
I look forward to meeting you on a tour in 2017.
