We’ve celebrated Christmas, we’ve rung in the New Year and with one of the coldest January’s on record predicted for 2014, it is definitely time to go online and start looking for that summer holiday!
There are some great holiday deals available online for those who book early, and while you may have spent more than you budgeted for over the festive period, most travel agents and tour operators can reserve your 2014 dream holiday for just a small deposit… all you need to do is decide where to go!
Tailor-made travel is right on trend for 2014, and if you like the idea of putting your own holiday together, but don’t know where to start, here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration…
Nature, Wildlife and Waterfalls – Zimbabwe
With its turbulent history, Zimbabwe might not be your first choice when it comes to an African adventure holiday, but this beautiful country has much to offer foreign travellers such as Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park and the Mana Pools. Unspoilt by tourism, Zimbabwe is a wonderful destination for those looking to see something different, and it is easily accessible from most International airports.
Football, Frango and Forró – Brazil
If your idea of the perfect 2014 holiday includes football, food, and fabulous beaches, you should definitely be heading to Brazil this year! With the FIFA world cup and Rio de Janeiro’s world-famous Carnaval about to get underway, Brazil is the ideal holiday destination for those who want some action!
Sun, Sea and Sailing – Mozambique
A country still unspoilt by tourism, Mozambique is home of the Quirimbas Archipelago, where you can spend a week or two aboard your own Dhow, sailing from one castaway island to another, swimming, snorkelling and dining on freshly caught seafood. While not for everyone, this is a truly unique experience for those who want to relax and indulge.
Mountains, Glaciers, and Off the Beaten Track – Patagonia
One of the most beautiful places in the world, Patagonia is the perfect destination for your 2014 self-drive holiday. The 700+ mile Carretera Austral will take you off the beaten track, and show you some of the most wonderful glaciers, national parks, and remote wilderness settings… and best of all, you get to set the pace!
Wherever you decide to go in 2014, we hope you have an amazing time, and look forward to hearing all about it on your return!
