October 2019

It's an exciting time of year for Bushbaby - after a busy September, we're squeezing in a couple of research trips. As we go to press, Emily is touring Sri Lanka, a country which is close to our hearts and ticks all the boxes for a family holiday full on adventure, beach-time and fascinating culture with a warm welcome guaranteed! Later this month, Lops, our Asia specialist, is heading to Cambodia so watch out for her Insta posts - guaranteed to make us smile! Do follow their progress on Facebook and Instagram and if you have any questions, pop a comment on their social media posts - expertise direct from the field!

If you're contemplating holiday plans for 2020, this month's newsletter looks at Easter v Summer travel. Any parent juggling teens knows how hard it can be to find that magical 2-week window in April when revision-time comes into the equation. Fortunately there are some fantastic destinations that lend themselves well to Summer long-haul adventure too or perhaps take advantage of an off-peak summer beach flop in Mauritius? Whichever way your're leaning, we're happy to talk through the possibilities with you! 
With optimal long-haul weather, Easter can be a great time for a family adventure if there are no exams on the horizon!
