extraordinary short breaks

get away from it all


shorter breaks

“We had high expectations for this trip and it delivered on all fronts and in excess of those expectations. Outstanding - thank you.”

A shorter holiday needs to be planned with that much more precision and with people on the ground who make the most out of every moment. Medium haul destinations such as Morocco and Oman are not too far and yet still very exotic. Further afield, however, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and even Namibia or Mozambique are possibilities.

With direct flights even the Maldives and parts of India come into play. We generally try to encourage a slightly more leisurely and considered approach than a week or less in our destinations but if that is all you have there are a handful of ways of doing a handful of our destinations in a way that is truly worth doing.

Further Recommendations

when should I go to oman


Adventure in the rugged interior. Luxury on the beach. Escape from the Winter. A tented camp in the Al Akhdar Mountains is true adventure. Sunset on the dunes a real memory. A luxury hotel on an unspoilt beach a way to unwind.  Exotic variety is only a short flight away.
