Bespoke Holidays are really the only kind of holiday that I think really works! Bespoke is just that – it is a holiday which is completely individually tailored for you – whether you are a couple, a group of friends travelling together or a family.
It means that the experiences you want are taken into consideration – whether you are active, outdoorsy type of people who would like to go walking, trekking, horse riding, scuba diving, snorkelling or canoeing and cycling – whether you are foodies – enjoying the finest cuisine wherever you travel (and again, that can either be staying in luxury hotels or lodges or camps or cycling to gourmet places). Perhaps you might like to cycle around Kanha or Kerala or walk with Sherpa guides in the Himalayas, staying in beautiful village houses en route and ending up at a beautiful luxury house overlooking Nanda Devi.
If you are city people, perhaps you would like to simply relax on a beach somewhere which offers the finest spa treatments, visit cities such as Galle in Sri Lanka or go antique hunting in Tamil Nadu in India or visit the palaces in Rajasthan or spend time wine tasting in Cape Town, staying at the finest boutique hotels and have a private wine tour arranged for you, with the cellar master of the top estates taking you around. If you are interested in botany, we can arrange the most beautiful botanical tours through South Africa for you which you can largely do by yourself or we can arrange a private guide for you. If you want to explore the Middle East, we can take you into the deserts of Jordan and Oman or taking a luxury dahabiya down the Nile.
You might like to stay in a private house or villa in Mauritius, The Seychelles, Maldives, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania or Kenya. Perhaps a Robinson Crusoe retreat might suit you more! Exlusivity is the key…We can obviously arrange the most sensational safaris for you too in East, Central and southern Africa as well as Madagascar and India, Borneo, Burma, Sri Lanka and Nepal and then we have the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador!
In Africa one can stay at private tented camps or lodges, with private guides or take a private flying safari along the Skeleton Coast in Namibia. Again, all hobbies and interests are taken into consideration, including photography whereby you can have a professional photographer accompany you for a couple of days to inspire and teach you. Spend time with lion or elephant researchers too! Cookery and yoga classes are possible too! Whatever your interests and whatever sort of places you would like to stay in, just let us know! No brief is too wide! What you can be assured of though, is with a staff of specialists from Africa and India and over 22 years of arranging the finest bespoke holidays, you can be assured of a holiday of a lifetime with us!
