AFRICA 2020

We start with a Pre-trip to Giraffe Manor in Nairobi which has become very famous. This chance to spend a night in this beautiful Manor house on the outskirts of Nairobi with lots of Giraffe and Warthogs. You will have the chance to hand feed the Giraffes and also get a kiss if you feel upto it. Kristen and Paul have been to Giraffe manor and love the place and the experience. You will get a chance to tour a local bead factory and also visit the David Shedrake Wildlife Trust and see the orphan elephants rescued and being rehabilitated.

The main safari begins with a short overnight in the Nairobi National Park with an early breakfast followed by a plane ride to the Ol Pejeta conservancy. You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to Porini Rhino Camp where you will stay 2 nights. This 90,000-acre wildlife conservancy is situated between the foot hills of the Aberdares and the magnificent snowcapped Mount Kenya. Ol Pejeta boasts an astounding variety of animals including the non-indigenous chimpanzees and the big 5 (the endangered black rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion). The combination of amazing wildlife and stunning views across the open plains of Ol Pejeta guarantees an unforgettable safari experience. 

After a flight to Maasai Mara we will be transferred to the Porini Lion camp located on the banks the Ntiakatiak River. We will call the camp our home for three nights. Porini Lion Camp is in the exclusive 20,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy. This expansive conservancy, which borders the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is home to an abundance of animals including the Big Cats for which the Mara is famous. The 1,700-square kilometer Maasai Mara Game Reserve is one of the world's richest wildlife sanctuaries and shares the same ecosystem as its neighbor - the Serengeti National Park. Virtually every common species of East African wildlife may be seen here including elephants, the legendary black-maned lions, leopard, cheetah, giraffes, wildebeests, buffalo, wart hogs, zebras, gazelles, topi, hyena, ostrich, hippos, baboons and many others. There are more than two million animals in the Mara during the annual wildebeest migration which streams past the lodge. An extraordinary variety of birdlife is also known to the immediate area. 

From Maasai Mara we will board a plane to Nairobi and continue to the island of Zanzibar. After checking in at Breezes Beach Club and Spa (a family owned resort on the east coast) we will enjoy 7 nights relaxing on the powder white sands
looking out at the azure clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The diving in Zanzibar is some of the most exotic we have experienced. The untouched coral and abundance of sea life are appealing to even the most seasoned of divers. There are also options to do local tours, go shopping, arrange some special services at the Frangipani Spa and much more. 

Come join us and fall in love with Africa as we did many years ago!

French Polynesia October 2020

This one has us so excited! The Polynesian Master is the First and Only liveaboard in French Polynesia and because of the remote location there are no plans for more. We have secured the boat for a 7 night charter in October 2020 during the Humpback migration. 

Our plan is to spend 3 days before the Cruise free diving with the Humpback Whales and then do the 7 night cruise aboard the incredible Polynesian Master touring the outer islands of Tuamoto and Society. After the cruise the plan is to spend 3 days diving with the Tiger sharks and other marine life that Tahiti is known for.

Just say the words “French Polynesia” and what springs to mind are a plethora of small islands with stunning white beaches, surrounded by crystal clear warm water. Situated in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, this island archipelago is home to some of the most wondrous dive sites, where hundreds of hungry sharks gather in schools to be joined by manta rays and bottle-nosed dolphins. Diving Rangiroa’s reefs and channels you can expect to see grey reef hammerhead, black tips, silky, tiger and silver tip shark species cruising the reef, hunting on schools of snapper and fusiliers. Whilst drift diving through the 1200m wide channel at North Fakarava Island, you can experience incredible shark action, see huge Napoleon wrasses and witness marbled groupers spawning. A typical diving day will see you cruising through channels and exploring the outer reefs of the atolls, yet there are numerous of shallow dive sites within the Tuamotu Archipelago, each with stunning hard corals, sheltering all manner of crustaceans and molluscs.

Built of steel, the French Polynesia Master plies the waters of this island archipelago, welcoming aboard 25 guests for 7 or 10 night dive safaris. Our 4 decks provide ample space for relaxation and dive equipment and camera preparation. Our experienced crew will ensure you receive only the highest quality service on your diving vacation.

On a typical day we offer up to 3 day dives however the 3rd day dive may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored within a lagoon. A 7-night itinerary provides for between 18-20 dives.

The diving day aboard the French Polynesia Master is scheduled as follows:- Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1. Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2. Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3. Snack relaxation period. Dinner. Guests may also take the opportunity to visit the islands and walk upon the pristine beaches.

Dive sites are typically channel or “Pass” dives and the route planning for each trip is highly dependent upon the incoming and out-going tides for each island. We dive the optimum tide for each site to bring you the ultimate in pelagic fish action. Strong currents to be expected and it is therefore recommended divers have experience beyond beginner level to ensure maximum enjoyment. Dive sites also include outer reefs, plateaus and coral gardens found with the lagoon, where currents are less intense and many smaller creatures can be found.

Water temperatures throughout the year range from 24-28°C (60-82°F), with January-March being the warmest months and July-November the coolest. The cooler waters bring forth migrating humpback whales and the spawning of marbled groupers.

This is an amazing adventure that we are about to embark on. Be one of the first tourists to explore St Helena which is known as one of the most remote places on Earth. St Helena is absolutely unique, there is no other way to describe it. The adventure starts when you board the Embraer Jet in Johannesburg to fly to the rock in the Atlantic Ocean. You will explore Britain’s most impressive and most remote island: the sub-tropical sea fortress of St Helena. A place where you can sit outside a British pub, having a cup of tea while a traditional bobby walks his beat. Then you can pull on your scuba set and jump into the water and dive with enormous devil rays, just off the sea wall.  After diving you can swim with whale sharks, and end your day with the finest wine and food at the Mantis Hotel.

The trip starts in Johannesburg for 1 night, before we fly to St Helena for 7 nights in the Mantis Hotel with lots of diving included and also the opportunity to snorkel with Whale Sharks that flock to the island at that time of year. After this we head back to Johannesburg for 1 night then onto Victoria Falls for 2 nights of amazing Historical and Natural wonders. Then onto Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe for 3 nights/4 days Safari before heading back to Johannesburg to start our journey home.
