Africa November 2017

Join us for another amazing adventure in Africa 2017! 

Your journey begins with a short overnight in the city of Nairobi before hopping on a plane to the Ol Pejeta conservancy the next morning. 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 Masai 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 located in the exclusive 20,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy. This expansive conservancy, which borders the Masai 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 Masai 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 Masai Mara we will board a plane to Nairobi and continue on 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!!

Truk Lagoon October 2017

If you have any interest in either World War II history or diving then Truk is a great destination for you. With many of the Japanese fleet destroyed there it is one of the best locations to wreck dive in the World. 


With over 60 wrecks, from supply vessels (Maru) to planes and a submarine, tightly packed into a coral reef lagoon, it is easy to appreciate why divers travel to this area time and time again. During WWII, the Japanese fleet used Truk as one of their main staging points for attacks on the allied forces but in 1944 the American led “Operation Hailstone” surprised the fleet resulting in the plethora of dive sites which we can see there today.

Many historical artifacts such as medicine bottles and newspapers along with articles of war, including include aircraft wings for the infamous Zero Fighter planes, tanks, guns, gas masks and ammunition, can still be found at many of the sites. While the wrecks themselves are encrusted with corals, you can still clearly see telegraphs, steering columns and mounted guns. There is also the opportunity to explore engine rooms and holds. Surrounded by a coral reef, there are many excellent coral pinnacles and deep channels with schooling pelagics too!

Many of the wrecks lie within recreational diving depths, however the Truk Master also offers Tec diving facilities for those wishing to delve deeper in the wrecks and take a closer look at history.

Dive the superb wrecks of the Japanese WWII fleet which lay in a variety of depths with the Truk Lagoon. Our 10-night itineraries allow you to explore not only many of the famous wrecks but to experience some superb reef diving also. There are numerous channels that cut through the reef which serve as hunting grounds for reef sharks and schooling pelagics which all add to the wonder of diving Truk.

Departing from Weno,  our 10-night liveaboard dive trips on the Truk Master take you directly to the main concentration of wrecks lying within the bay. The Truk Master will moor over the deeper wrecks allowing for you to descend easily down the line directly to the wreck. Tec divers will benefit from the support of the “mother ship”, whilst our 2 skiffs are able to shuttle less experienced divers to the shallower sites and offer reef diving as an alternative to the wrecks.

Many of the wrecks are “Maru” or merchant vessels that had been left at anchor, some had been fortified with anti-aircraft weapons and many carried important army supplies including Zero Fighter aircraft parts, tanks, torpedo shells, trucks and road supplies. Bottles, cooking utensils, items from everyday life and personal artifacts can be found in several of the wrecks, serving as a reminder to the visiting divers of those who lost their lives during the battle. The more gruesome reminders of the conflict, such as human skulls, have since been removed and may now only be seldom seen in the deeper reaches of the wrecks.
