A Polar Holiday Exploring

In the far north of Canada, in the newest and largest part of the country, Nunavut is one of the most sparsely populated areas of the world and is inhabited only by a spread of around 32,000 Inuit people. A polar holiday to the region will often focus on Baffin Island, which is the country's largest, and the fifth largest in the world.

The capital is Iqaluit and the whole island is home to about 11,000 inhabitants. Take time to explore the capital before heading out on guided treks to see the stunning wildlife off the coast. The island is renowned for its wildlife, both in the waters surrounding it and on the coast. Inuit guides can take you out along the coast on snowmobiles and komatik, or Inuit sleds, to observe the myriad sea life and birdlife that call Baffin Island home.

If you are looking for an African safari adventure, you will often find your self spoilt for choices. There is Kenya with it's famous wildlife including the great wilderbeest migration in masai mara. Then there is southern Africa with a lot to offer. If you are a water person then, paddling up creeks, gliding across placid lakes and pushing through reeds while dodging crocodiles is an exciting way of seeing wildlife, not so much for glimpses of crocs, or hippos (which may just be showing their nostrils), but for the animals, so you can get much closer. Canoeing or boating safaris are most rewarding in semi-arid areas, whose rivers and lakes are obviously of paramount importance to local wildlife.

Combine a Beach Vacation in Mombasa

The wildebeest and zebra found in the Masai Mara game reserve from around July till end of October are the star cast in one of the 10 natural wonders of the world in terms of travel. The migration is a unique event that takes place every year with nearly 2 million of these grazers and browsers traveling from the Serengeti plains towards the Mara, crossing the Mara River in pursuit of the green grass. They will make a return journey, again crossing the Mara River northwards back to the Serengeti.

Visiting Kenya on a beach vacation during this time of the migration can be a good opportunity to witness the great annual event. From the beach resorts on the Kenya coast, one can take a break to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve for the migration. Here I provide a few guidelines to achieve this.


Different Varieties of Wetsuits For Kayaking

Wherever there is a body of water, there is a path for the kayak. When we spend more time in proximity to nature, we get relieved from all the tensions of our hectic lives. Adventurers have started indulging in extreme water sports for the sheer fun and challenge they offer. Kayaks are small boats with decks and covered cockpits. Kayaks house one to three paddlers facing in the forward direction and paddling with a double bladed paddle. When embarking on a kayaking expedition, it is very necessary to prepare protective apparel and accessories.

Wetsuits are used in kayaking to protect the kayaker from cold water and air temperatures. These are suits that are specifically designed to endure the cold and wet. Wetsuits are typically made of neoprene, which is a flexible material and not only protects the kayaker from the temperature but are still flexible enough to allow them to be able to maneuver about.

Explore the Activities And Attractions around Bicheno Tasmania   by Sidney Morgan

in Travel / Destinations    (submitted 2011-03-17)

Bicheno is not a household name like other holiday hotspots and Tasmania is not usually known for its temperate climate. These are both excellent reasons for discovering the town of Bicheno, found on the east coast of Tasmania. While this little crayfishing town having a population of just under 650 is not on the general tourist's list of "must see" locations, it is on the "must go back and stay longer" list of everyone who has been there.

Bicheno isn't hard to get to. It's just 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Tasmania's capital city, Hobart, but lots of overseas visitors to Tasmania overlook it. The northeast coastline of Tasmania is warmer and much more sheltered than other parts of the island and is blessed with an abundance of wildlife, both in the water and on land. Bicheno, located on the northern side of the Freycinet Peninsula, is a Tasmanian gem, with fantastic beaches, an abundance of sea life and spectacular scenery at its doorstep.
