BREAKING NEWS 2022
Dedicated Wildlife Photo Tours
2022 has has a great start! The WHO have declared that this is the year that Covid Ends. So to celebrate, we are launching a series of escorted and self guided wildlife photography tours. We are smashing this year with the launch of new tour packages in Kenya with acclaimed Photographic host Sara Jenner and guided Scuba Tours by Raf Jah in the Maldives and the Red Sea. For those seeking their own path, we have camera clubs from as far away as Canada visiting Kenya. There is literally so much going on right now, that we barely have time to update the website before packing for Male and Tanzania. Raf has ordered a new Nauticam housing for his Nikon D780 , from Jussi Mike’s Dive cameras. As soon as it arrives we will be hopping on Turkish Airlines to Istanbul, Africa and the Maldives.
FLIGHT BOOKINGS HELP
Through our professional booking portals we have always had some awesome flight deals. We know exactly how to get the best possible prices for business class and premium economy. It is often a case of where you book from, and how you book it. For example the BA website can have a sale on for Qatar Airways flights, that are 30% cheaper than on the QR website. It’s all all about how and where you search and the website you use to book!

Our epic journeys take you through Etosha National Park and the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Our exclusive 14-day Namibia safari tour that takes in the Skeleton Coast, The Namib-Naukluft and Etosha National Parks and introduces you to the Himba people.
SCUBA DIVING IN YAP ISLAND
Aside from the customised tours for Namibia, we are looking forward to late 2022, and our new dedicated manta ray and shark diving package for Yap Island in Micronesia. Why yap, you may ask? well Yap is the best connected of the most remote nations on earth. That means that it is in the middle of the pacific Ocean, its the most magical small island on and yet it has connections to Palau and Guam every week. So you can get there, but its quiet! The Second reason? Well the diving in Yap is absolutely spectacular, with resident Manta Rays and schools of sharks and pelagics. What about the water you ask? The water visibly in Yap is nearly always 50m. Ok so thirdly, where do you stay? Well Yap island boats a world class small boutique dive resort called “the Manta Ray Bay Hotel.” Fifth good reason to go to Yap? Yap Divers is a world class, full service dive centre. As Raf says, “Once the plane has left, you are the only tourists on the Island of Yap“. That means its you and incredibly friendly people until next week! Reasons six and seven Yap is safe, clean and welcoming. And the final reason to visit Yap? It is packed with history and culture.
Oh and did I mention that Yap Island is the home of schooling resident Manta Rays? In the Tzimoulas passage and Stumptish, you can find families of Manta Rays for most of the year. They do move from one side of the Island to the other, but other than that, they will be on one side of the reef or the other. Manta Rays are majestic creatures, and Bill Acker, the owner of Yap divers and the Manta Resort knows each and every one of them. Hang out with Bill and have a beer on his restaurant ship the Mnuw and ask him about the Yap he has known since 1977.
