  • Atacama Desert- north western coast of Chile. Parts of the desert get rain on occasion, other parts of the Atacama are so dry, they have not received any rain since the mid 1700's.  The reason this desert is so dry is because it is bordered on the East by the Andes mountains, the mountains block any clouds from the rain forest on the other side of the mountains from getting over to the desert

  • Safari, in Kiswahili, simply means "journey". But in English it has become a synonyme for a wildlife viewing adventure in the African bush. 'To go on safari' In Tanzania is, and always will remain a fascinating and exclusive experience!It is well known that Tanzania has beautiful nature reserves rich in wildlife. There are, however, still many false ideas about this big southern neighbour of Kenya. It is true that Tanzania, measured in terms of pro-capita income, is one of the world's poorest countries. It is a fact that the country can feed itself and, what is of greater significance, is that since independence Tanzania politically has been among the most stable African countries. In regard to safety, both for its own citizens and for tourists, it is well ahead of its more economically advanced neighbours. 
  • Nestled in the interior of Sabah, the Danum Valley Conservation Area is one of the last remaining preserves of primary lowland rainforest in Asia. The Danum Valley provides visitors with an unparalled ecological experience into the wilds and wonders of ancient tropical forests. Within its 438 sq. km. the rich diversity of animal and plant life display the complex interaction of a natural, dynamic ecosystem found only in rainforests.The hot and humid jungle teems with a variety of towering tropical trees, lingering lianas, exotic orchids and overhanging epiphytes. There are few places on earth that can provide such an awe-inspiring spectacle of nature in its original, pristine state.
