Lake Windermere – Lake District National Park

“Are we there yet?” pleads my three-year-old son from the rear of the car. I’ve returned to the Lake District for the first time since my school trip to Patterdale, back in the early eighties. I’m curious as to what I can recall of the place after all these years, however, the sands of time and copious quantities of alcohol play havoc with the old grey matter. I’ve already decided our next appointment with the lakes will be headquartered at Windermere, hub of the region. As a base it........ Read More

Traveller's Journal: Snowdonia National Park - Day 3

I cannot recall the moment I discovered my fear of heights. I can remember falling from the top of a bunk bed once whilst on holiday as my sister slept on the bottom. I don't think that was the defining moment, though I'm sure it played some part in developing my phobia. But one thing was for certain. I knew I couldn't come to Llanberis without a journey on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. "Did you go on the mountain train?" they would ask. "Er, no," I would reply rather meekly. "Why ever not?" ........ Read More

Kruger National Park

In our imaginations the wild places of Africa are timeless and unchanging. That is the reason why Africans and non-Africans seek them out, to restore calm and proportion to their lives. In reality of course, this isn't true because Africa's landscapes change just like any other as they respond to shifts in their environment and human activity. For the past million years or so, humans and their ancestors have been the main agents of change in Africa's savannah. Kruger National Park is not a........ Read More

National Parks Offer Great Appeal For Nature Lovers

When visiting Seattle Washington, it is probably quite impossible not to notice the beautiful scenery that surrounds this great town. I can think of few cities in America that are so strategically located to take advantage of the best of nature. Not only are the surroundings lovely, but the climate is also very mild for most of the year. The drawback for some is the rain as it rains about 50 percent of the time in this city. I suppose that I could sacrifice humidity and stifling high temperatu........ Read More

Fire Risk In Yorkshire Dales National Park Rises

Areas of the Yorkshire Dales National Park are now being closed to walkers as the continued high temperatures and drought conditions turn areas of the park to tinder.

An urgent plea to walkers and tourists comes as the Met Office announced that its Fire Severity Index for the Yorkshire Dales is now on ‘High’ and is expected to rise to ‘Exceptional’ – its highest rating – on if the weather continues.

The ‘Exceptional’ rating automatically triggers closure of Open ........ Read More

A Kenya Safari Holiday Based In Chyulu Hills National Park

Before booking a Kenya Safari Holiday, perhaps even a honeymoon in Kenya, you need to do your homework. It is possible you might never have heard of Campi Ya Kanzi which is in the Chyulu Hills National Park, but this would be the perfect place for a luxury African safari. Campi Ya Kanzi means ‘Camp of The Hidden Treasure’, but effectively for you the hidden treasure is the sheer quality of this luxury tented safari camp in Southern Kenya, which is almost in the shadow of Mt.

Traveller's Journal: Snowdonia National Park - Day 1

The road branched right into a trail named on the map as Llanberis Pass. In my experience anything labelled as a Pass meant spectacular scenery and a tinge of excitement stirred within me. What began as a gentle shower was now a torrential downpour. As I progressed through the valley the walls rose steeply and threatened to engulf me. At one point they rise almost vertically to nearly two thousand feet. It's easy to find a sense of claustrophobia surrounded by these imposing mountainous peaks. ........ Read More
