Days 7 & 8: Apia, Samoa

The northeast coast of Australia is home to some of the world’s most impressive natural wonders.

Whether you explore its otherworldly coral formations, white sands and crystal clear waters by boat, from the air or underwater, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The area is also home to another great natural wonder, the Daintree Rainforest, the world’s oldest living rainforest, tens of millions of years older than the Amazon. Here aboriginal guides will lead you through the spectacular flora and fauna.
Days 11 - 13: Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Hotel: The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra, India
The Taj Mahal is the best-known building in the world and among the most beautiful.

Just two kilometres away is the Agra Fort, the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty until 1638. Covering some 94 acres, this masterpiece of design and construction is a fascinating mix of Hindu and Muslim influences.
Days 16 - 18: Tanzania, Africa

Tanzania is home to Serengeti Park, whose vast plains support the greatest concentration of wildlife found anywhere in the world, including Africa’s densest “big cat” population.

Other must visit locations include Ngorongoro Crater, the largest unbroken caldera on the planet. Here local guides will help you observe its permanent population of around 25,000 animals, including bull elephants, black rhinos and lions.

Carved out of the rose-red sandstone some 2,000 years ago, the iconic UNESCO World Heritage site of Petra was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Find yourself transported back to another age as you walk through the Siq, a narrow chasm in the bedrock formed when tectonic forces split the mountain in two, and emerge before the elaborate Treasury, Petra’s most famous monument. Nearby are the spectacular rock formations of Wadi Rum, an evocative lunar-like landscape immortalised in David Lean’s epic Lawrence of Arabia.
Days 21 & 22: Marrakech, Morocco
Hotel: La Mamounia, Marrakech, Morocco
Shimmering under the hot North African sun, Marrakesh is a city that sums up the colourful splendour of North Africa. The old medina, with its jumble of souks, and the hectic main square of the Jemaa el-Fna, where snake charmers and performers entertain passers-by, bedazzle the senses in every way. Escape the hustle and bustle with a stroll through Majorelle Gardens, where the pools, streams and fountains create an oasis of serenity. The city is also the perfect base from which to explore the ruggedly beautiful terrain and traditional Berber villages of the majestic Atlas Mountains.
