Be Bold

Seize the Opportunity to Travel

We’re sensing, as we talk with you, that there’s a definite sense of wanting to make that next holiday a really exceptional experience. Of wanting to be “bold”. Maybe it’s driven by having been cooped up too long, or by a renewed appreciation of the wonders of the world out there. People are ready to get out and experience the planet.
 
If your idea of being bold is to explore the remote, or to seek an adventure in the wilds the experts at Journeysmiths are brimful with ideas and inspiration. We are also firm believers that the wild and remote are best experienced in style comfort and privacy.

Desert:
Namib – Atacama – Thar
These deserts are places of solitude, silence, stillness, stars. Mineral sands paint the flowing dunes in ochres, reds and shades of gold. Deserts are places you feel you have no right to be. Yet you can rediscover yourself in the starkly beautiful landscapes.


Enquire About Deserts
Desert:
Namib – Atacama – Thar
Look closely and you discover that plants, animals, insects and people find ways to survive even in apparently waterless places 10,000 feet up. Inca messengers were crossing the Atacama five hundred years ago.

Desert:
Namib – Atacama – Thar
Camel trains have sailed the deserts of Thar from time immemorial. Who knows how long elephant and rhinoceros have roamed the Namib? Your guide will unveil some of the mystery.

River:
Zambezi – Ganges – Amazon
Rivers are sustainers of life, ever moving, changing in character. Great rivers are revered and powerful. They draw people and animals as they seek water and access to remote places and the sea.


Enquire About Rivers
River:
Zambezi – Ganges – Amazon
Every African river is a magnet for wildlife. None moreso than the Zambezi where you can sit and watch elephant cavorting in the shallows as the sun settles towards the horizon. Eric Newby’s classic “Slowly down the Ganges” tells how that river has always been integral to Indian life and culture.

River:
Zambezi – Ganges – Amazon
The very fact that one of the best places to see Amazonian wildlife is Peru testifies to that river’s reach. We know some fabulous places to stay near the water’s edge, or even on the rivers themselves.

Ice:
Arctic – Antarctic – Patagonia
One imperative which can drive us to travel is the fact that part of our world is disappearing. Animal species, cultures, ice. Our Travel Well policy shows how the very act of travelling to these places can preserve them and conserve the species that live there.


Enquire About Icy Destinations
Ice:
Arctic – Antarctic – Patagonia
As in the deserts, solitude, silence, stillness and stars are characteristics of stays in our world’s icy regions. The dominance of solid water challenges life in much the same way as arid dunescapes. We can take you on superbly equipped expedition vessels (or even to stay in a glass-topped ice villa!) so you can discover how life adapts to ice.


Enquire About Icy Destinations
Ice:
Arctic – Antarctic – Patagonia
Penguin colonies, polar bears, whales and towering iridescent ice mountains which refract the rays of the midnight sun. We can take you almost anywhere reliably and in style.

Forests:
Bwindi – Kanha – Madagascar
Forests are ancient and mysterious places of dappled light, birdcall, soaring trunks and shimmering canopies. We sense an intimate connection to trees and collective remorse at the rampant slaughter of these silent giants which are our planet’s lungs.


Enquire About Forests
Forests:
Bwindi – Kanha – Madagascar
Birds and animals of the forests call continuously, but are only glimpsed as they dart and swing through the canopy. We may even clamber up ladders to join them on walkways and do some darting and swinging of our own down zipwires, but we are clumsy forest dwellers, easily outmanoeuvred.


Enquire About Forests
Forests:
Bwindi – Kanha – Madagascar
Forest encounters are made poignant by the tenuous hold on life of the forests themselves and their wildlife. Among the tall elegant sal forests, bamboo and mango trees of Kanha a wise guide can lead you to a tiger. Hours of gloved, booted progress through “Impenetrable” Ugandan rainforest may reward you with an encounter with a silverback and his family. Most affecting of all perhaps are meetings with lemurs, tropical birds and plants in Madagascar, most of which are endemic and many under threat of extinction.
