Client feedback: Wonderful wildlife shots from Uganda, Zambia, Brazil and Botswana!

We’ve had some wonderful photos from our safari-goers over the last month – so wonderful, that we thought they deserved a blog post!

Scroll through the gallery below to see photos of a rare anteater in the Brazilian Pantanal, a gorgeous lioness in a tree, a gorilla with its young, and more – all taken by G&M clients!

 

Client Feedback: Fabulous photos of wild tigers in India

Regular safari-goer Dr Mike Leary-Owhin travelled with us to India in March and returned with some absolutely fabulous photos of tigers in the wild, which we thought we must share.

We’ve picked a few highlights from the photos Mike sent us and included them in the gallery below.

You can view the rest of Mike’s pictures on his Flickr pages. Click here for Tiger photos, and here for other wildlife and landscapes.

North Pole Expedition

How you can sign up, train and prepare for a North Pole expedition?

We invite you to come to the prestigious Royal Geographical Society for an information presentation by celebrated polar guide Alan Chambers MBE.

Alan is a polar adventurer who received the MBE for ‘exceptional leadership in extreme adversity’ when he led the first successful unsupported British Geographic North Pole expedition, walking 672 nautical miles in temperatures as low as -65°C dragging a sledge the weight of a baby elephant. In preparation for his expedition Alan lived with a family of Inuits, indigenous to the Arctic for between 1 and 2 months every year for 5 years.

Alan has since led top business leaders & chief executives to the North Pole in virtually every North Pole season since 2002. The North Pole challenge helped them explore and reflect on their own leadership capabilities.

Jeremy Gane FRGS, and also a director of Charity Challenge, has been researching and developing North Pole expeditions with Alan and Simon Albert of Charity Challenge for the last five years. Gane and Marshall has teamed up with Charity Challenge to offer these exclusive North Pole expeditions, guided by Alan Chambers.

The Information Day will take place on Friday 19th June 2015 from 2 to 4:30pm in the Lowther Room at the Royal Geographic Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. We have arranged for the main presentation to run from 14:30-15:15. Tea and coffee will be served from 14:00.

Adventure Holiday in Oman

Memories of an Adventure Holiday in Oman

A guest blog by Rachel Clarke

I remember my adventure holiday in Oman very fondly. In brief I would describe Oman as a peaceful, unspoilt, friendly, intriguing  holiday destination – with plenty of sunshine and a good variety of culture, wildlife and landscapes to discover. I would highly recommend going there now, while it is still largely undiscovered. (Ssssh don’t tell everyone!) Continue reading Adventure Holiday in Oman
