Going on an adventure has always appealed to me. Exploring off the beaten track can be an amazing experience, whether it be deep into a National Park or a Jungle, each experience offers something different.

Why we love Adventure holidays

The latest insight from our worldwide Adventures

Destinations

Some recent adventures include expeditions through Borneo along the Kinabatangan River, heading deep into the primeval rainforest. Sailing adventures in the remote Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat with extraordinary experiences alongside the Asmat. A favourite destination of our team at the moment is Virunga in the Democratic Republic of Congo – not your ‘usual’ holiday destination, but the experience on offer in this area, from chimpanzee and gorilla encounters to treks on the Nyiragongo Volcano and in the Rwenzori Mountains is quite phenomenal.

Experiences

Over the years True Luxury Travel have been involved in experiences as extreme as ultra-marathons and multi-day triathlons. If that’s not your thing then canoe expeditions in Southern Africa, helicopter tours of the Himalaya and fly-fishing adventures in the remote atolls of the Seychelles are just some of the projects we’ve been instrumental in arranging. You don’t have to go multi-day, bespoke, remote though – some of the guides we work with in Cape Town for example can really get you off the beaten track and away from the crowds in a couple of hours.

Active Adventure

This is perhaps the fastest growing and most dynamic sector of the luxury travel industry. Across the globe focus is shifting from luxury hotel suites to high-quality experiential travel. Professional guiding was always a concept associated with being on safari in Africa – putting your trust and safety in the hands of a professional to learn and gain from their experience and passion. The world has caught up! Now wherever you choose to travel there are local experts keen to share their specialism with international travellers.

Specialists

We pride ourselves in our global network of guides, most of whom we communicate with on a weekly if not daily basis to curate tailor-made itineraries. It’s important to stress that when creating your holiday we pull heavily on the expert detailed knowledge of the professional guides in each location. For example, if you want to explore Botswana’s Okavango Delta on foot or by boat over multiple days, staying far from the crowds, we would call our friends John and James who spend 300 days a year on safari in the Okavango as they understand what works and what doesn’t better than anyone.

Adventure Highlights

Okavango Delta

Okavango Delta

One of Africa’s most iconic safari areas. A phenomenon of nature where the Okavango River runs out, not to the sea but into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Floodwaters arrive all the way from the Angolan Highlands in about June and water levels in the Delta can rise by up to three feet in a matter of days. A truly beautiful landscape with a jaw-dropping variety and volume of wildlife.

Kenya and Samburu

Kenya and Samburu

The high plains of Laikipia sit under a majestic snow-capped Mount Kenya, and are made up of a patchwork of private reserves with superb family run safari lodges. This is regarded as one of Kenya's best safari regions with plentiful game and few visitors, an example of sustainable tourism at its best, and the location of some truly beautiful lodges. True Luxury Travel’s specialists often find ourselves drawn back to this area and if you were to ask about our favourite areas in Africa, Laikipia would be close to the top. Heading further north takes you into the Samburu and the heat of the desert, a land of winding sand-rivers and doom palms, flanked by the majestic Matthews Range and the Samburu’s spiritual mountain Ololokwe. Stumble upon huge bull elephants and big breeding herds heading for water and be astounded in the volume of life in such an arid part of the world, this is an excellent area for wild dog and leopard sightings.

Tioman Island

Tioman Island

The densely forested island is still sparsely inhabited. Also it is surrounded by numerous white coral reefs, making it a haven for scuba divers from around the region.

Queenstown

Queenstown

Queenstown is a picturesque alpine village with a great buzz where you can find lots of young people, and lots of easily accessible commercial activities - bungee jumping, jetboating, rafting, and now also wonderful wine tours.

Muang La

Muang La

Muang La is 28km from Udomxai in the North of Laos. It offers a rural alternative to the city, sitting on the confluence of the Nam La (La River) and Nam Phak (Phak River), surrounded by palm trees. Muang La hosts one of Laos' most admired Buddha Statues, the Pra Singkham Buddha.

Bali

Bali

World-class surfing and diving, a large number of cultural, historical and archaeological attractions, and an enormous range of accommodations, this is one of the world's most popular island destinations and one which consistently wins travel awards.
