2022: Starting on an Optimistic Note

While there have been a number of “false starts” during the current pandemic, with the promise of travel apparently opening up only to be dashed by the appearance of a new wave or variant, we do feel there is real cause for optimism as we enter a new year.

Looking forward to renewed opportunities to travel, we are offering a programme to tempt the palate concentrating on southern Europe with, in addition, the possibility of one or more exceptional destinations in Africa. From the rose-filled gardens of Venice to the wine estates of South Africa, our tours cater to a wide range of tastes and encompass public and private, as well as famed botanical, gardens.

In Europe, we focus on the wealth of exceptional gardens in southern France and northern Italy, from Provence to the Italian lakes and Veneto region. Later in the year we make a welcome return to South Africa’s western Cape region where we visit superb gardens and wine estates, and outstanding private reserves with their abundant flora and fauna.

There is also the possibility of a tour to Morocco, encompassing gardens of Taroudant and Marrakech, and the Atlas Mountains. Dates are yet to be finalized owing to restrictions on entry into Morocco currently in place.

Information about all our public tours in 2022 is available HERE. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further details, or to discuss a proposed booking. You may rest assured that we will continue to monitor the situation regarding Covid-19 and to keep you informed if changes become necessary to the programme.

In addition, we are happy to arrange bespoke tours for private groups, and we welcome your enquiries in this respect.

We look forward to welcoming you as we set out in spring 2022!
