When to go

The best time for a safari in Kenya is one of the dry seasons, between June and October as well as January and February.  The famous wildebeest herds are in the Maasai Mara in September and October.

Must-See Places in 

Greece

Signature Experiences in

Greece

Athens

The ancient Acropolis stands guard over a bustling city with stylish restaurants, world-class museums, lively cafes and monuments from antiquity.


Crete

Splendid beaches, rugged canyons, Venetian and Turkish architecture reflecting a fascinating history, quiet fishing towns and old labyrinthine cities - Crete is an island worth a visit in its own right.


Santorini

Villages perched precariously on the edge of a volcanic crater, the sunset lighting up the white-washed houses and multi-coloured cliffs.  This is the Greece you have always dreamed of.


Mykonos

Hip hotels, lively restaurant and booming nightclubs cater to cruise ship crowds and holidaymakers looking for a good time on this otherwise quintessential Greek island.


Paros

A quieter island featuring ancient footpaths connecting beaches to picturesque quiet villages.


Naxos

A Venetian town with steep cobbled alleyways, isolated beaches, archaeological sites and medieval villages, lush valleys covered in ancient olive and citrus groves - this is one island you do not want to miss.


Evia

A hidden gem of an island where old stone paths lead you to quaint villages tucked away in the mountains.  An authentic Greek atmosphere pervades this island little known outside of Greece.


Meteora

Perched on top and built into steep rock pinnacles, these monasteries provide a peaceful haven for its resident monks.


Delphi

This lively cliff-side village sits in a spectacular location.  Nearby is the Sanctuary of Apollo in ancient Delphi, home to the Delphi Oracle.


Olympia

Ancient Olympia, a complex that once comprised of temples and public buildings was the site of the Olympic Games of antiquity, which took place here for at least a thousand years.


Nafplio

In a stunning location, this town of graceful Venetian houses and pretty narrow streets is lorded over by a towering fortress.  The seaside promenade has a multitude of lively cafes and restaurants and is a great place to soak up the wonderful  atmosphere.

Walk ancient footpaths

Ancient Byzantine footpaths crisscross islands and mountains while rugged trails lead you through gorges in the Pindus Mountains and on the island of Crete.  Greece is a country made for walking.


Explore the past

With Greece being the cradle of modern Western society, it has  a proud past reflected in its many monuments such as the Athens Acropolis, the Oracle of Delphi and Ancient Olympia.  Then there is the fascinating history of Mycenaeans, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and Ottomans.  Discover the secrets of the past on a guided walk and imagine what it was like to live in places like these.


Cruise a caldera

Board your vessel and enjoy a barbecue and a glass of refreshing wine while soaking up the spectacular sunset views in the Santorini caldera.


Island hopping

As you travel the Aegean Sea by ferry, yacht or sailboat, you will discover each island's particular sites and atmosphere.


Climb to a monastery

Hike up steep rock-carved staircases to reach the monasteries of Meteora, perched high up on their cliffs.


Hike a gorge

Take through the raw beauty of Samariá Gorge, where cliff faces reach up to 500 metres high and at some places are just three metres apart.  End at the remote coastal village of Agia Roumeli, from where you take a ferry back.  Or, while in the north, hike through the Vikos Gorge, one of the deepest in the world.


Eat your heart out

Olive oil, lemon juice, vegetables, and herbs, grains and bread, wine, cheese, fish, lamb, poultry, rabbit and pork are the main ingredients making Greek cuisine famous all over the world.


A culture of coffee

Lingering, lazy and chat and gossip-filled - that is how in Greece you take your coffee, all the while doing some serious people watching.


Glorious beaches

No visit to Greece would be complete without a visit to its beaches.  Whether you like a bustling strip of sand where the jet-set bronze their bodies, local beaches where families play with their children, or hidden coves to have all to yourself, Greece has something for everyone.


Find a peaceful spot

Be it on the island of Paros or the hidden gem of Evia, in a forgotten cove, walking an ancient path or in a Byzantine church or Orthodox monastery, Greece has plenty to offer those seeking quietude.
