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.

Exclusive holiday Morocco


Probably the most accessible ‘exotic’ destination from Europe. You can combine a bit of culture and shopping in Marrakech with a stay on the coast in Essaouira to make a week very busy and fulfilling. Best in March through June and September through November.

United Arab Emirates

There are a lot more places to visit in the UAE than just Dubai. We know some great desert camps and and private guides that can show you a lot more than the City in the desert. November is perfect for warm days, and a lot quieter than December.
