Flying In A Helicopter Over A Volcano Crater

Staying at the Elephant Safari Park Lodge has been incredible.  We’ve just spent the last hour talking with the owners of the Elephant Sanctuary, and during this conversation, Nigel Mason invited us to join his wife Yanie in there recently acquired luxury helicopter with their reasonably new company – Bali Adventure Sky Tours to fly over […]

Sleeping With The Elephants In Bali

I’m relaxing by the pool at the 5 star resort we stayed at in Sanur, reading a glossy Luxury Travel Magazine. It is only now I read and learn about a unique Safari Lodge out from Ubud, and right here in Bali. Having done several Safari Lodges in Africa, I thought that experiencing one in Asia […]

Thai Service With A Smile

Thailand prides itself on its excellent service.  The Thai’s are precise, punctual, and extremely helpful in most cases, and after a long flight from Kenya, Africa we were so pleased to finally arrive in Bangkok at our centrally located hotel in busy Bangkok. It was barely dinner time, but I hadn’t slept much in the […]

The Busy Travellers Perfect Safari

Do you have a ‘bucket list’ of places you want to travel to, and things you want to see and do in this wide and wonderful world? If you are a busy person; live the business or executive life; only have a day stop over on your flight; have sporting or team commitments; or health […]

Salubrious Swanky Safari

Most travellers dreams of going on safari in Africa, with their head poking out of a Land-rover, or sitting in a retro truck as it bumps over the orange dust giving their backs and buttocks an African massage. But like most travellers, we found ourselves seeking a little luxury as well.  We had roughed it […]

Stressed – Come And Relax In Paradise

Imagine waking up in paradise on an African island to the sounds of pretty birds singing their morning song; with coconut palms gently saying in the breeze, and the gentle lap of the ocean inlet before you.  All around you is pristine white; from the floor following up the walls to the roof.  And as […]

How Muslims live on an African Island

Hidden away off the north coast of Africa on the tiny island of Lamu is the small village of Kipungani. This sleepy completely Muslim settlement was once the thriving capital of Lamu Island – back when the Arabs used to trade from the north, and the Indians came from the east. In fact it is Kenya’s oldest […]

Stepping Back In Time

It is a beautiful day as our speed boat heads toward the tiny capital of Lamu Island, known as Lamu.  We have booked one week on Lamu Island, and are staying about 25 minutes boat ride away at Kizingoni Beach (you can read about that here). It is located directly across the mainland of Kenya […]

Lounging In The Lap Of Luxury On Lamu Island

Have you ever had a crazy morning?  A morning where all your plans are challenged?  Well we did. We had a rather crazy morning.  Mainly because the rain came pouring down, and we were due to leave Turtle Bay Club for the Malindi Airport. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but it […]

Our Worldschooling World in Africa

Have you ever thought about how good it would be for a child to have fun when they are learning? What a joy it would be for them to wake and to be excited about what the day holds for them?  For my son, this is his life as he travels the world, and he […]

Feeling Blue ? What A Load Of Rubbish !

“What A Load Of Rubbish” says Explorason as we walk into a building and inside are piles and piles of RUBBISH. Immediately before us there are barrels of BLUE plastic waste, collected from the local beaches. Recently we stayed at Turtle Bay Club in Kenya. Whilst we were there we noticed a board that listed […]

Turtle Bay Club on the Kenya Coast of Africa

We left Watamu area just a week prior to our stay at Turtle Bay Beach Club on the Kenya Coast of Africa. With a few days to spare before we flew to Lamu Island, we decided we’d like to experience a resort with a Kids Club that was also ‘All-Inclusive’, and of course it needed to be on […]
