Go on a bush hunt with the Ju'hoan hunters, collecting bush foods of berries, tubers, honey and small animals.

Hidden Iran A world away from the cities and deserts of Iran is the beautiful Alborz Mountains. Rising up from the Caspian Sea, a lesser explored region beckons. Experience a glimpse into a quieter, greener and more traditional side of Iran. Experience warm hospitality and excellent local cuisine.

Ambunti Crocodile Festival The Sepik River hosts some of the world’s largest saltwater and freshwater crocodile population’s and the richness of life in this area is celebrated during the WWF supported festival. This is your opportunity to witness this region of Papua New Guinea, where humanity has frozen in time.

Reindeer Tribes of Mongolia Your visit to the reindeer herding people plays an important role to help them and their culture survive. Although very few travellers venture into this realm, our tourism initiative provides them with a supplemental income and cultural exchange education for both our travellers and local Tsaachin people. To spend time with these people is remarkable and brimming with cultural practices that provide a deep insight into this fascinating way of life.
