Hippos, Cheetahs, Wildebeests all occupy this vast country, as well as the beautiful and mysterious Mountain Gorilla. Even though life for most is a struggle, Africa still hosts some of the biggest nature spectacles in the world.

If you’ve been fascinated by Penguins, Petrels and other seabirds, then Antarctica is the perfect place to see this amazing creatures. They all come to Antarctica each summer to breed, before leaving when winter descends. Only the Male Emperor Penguins remain, during the harsh winter weather, huddling together for warmth and keeping their eggs warm under the downy bulge of their stomachs.

Specialist cruises operate within Antarctica, offering trips in and around the Antarctic Peninsula.



Asia covers about 30% of the Earths land surface, providing habitat for an array of different animals including the Bengal Tiger, Asian Elephant, Indian Rhino and Clouded Leopard. The waters in and around Asia are also teeming with life, with plenty of coral reefs supporting fish and bigger mammals such dolphins.
