Destinations range from Kangaroo Island in Australia to Kamchatka in the far east of Russia, and from African hot-spots such as the Okavango and Masai Mara to American wildernesses such as the Amazon and Alaska. Familiar destinations including the Farne Islands and Yellowstone mingle with more esoteric experiences such as whale-watching in Tonga and watching millions of Monarch butterflies in Mexico.
