About our Discovery trips

Discovery trips are the most popular kind of adventures that we do and will give you the widest choice of destinations. On a Discovery trip you’ll get up close and personal with the destinations and communities you travel through. You'll see the cultural and historical highlights as well as discover local hidden gems. And our Wildlife trips are perfect for every animal lover: from African safaris to bear watching tours, we've got a trip for everyone. 

Every group is different but the ‘average’ group consists of around 12 people, roughly half couples and half solo travellers. Tour leaders are the glue that holds everything together on a group trip. Chosen for their travel experience, passion for their country and their ability to make a truly memorable experience, our leaders go out of their way to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime. 

Want to find out more? We've answered some of the most-asked questions about travelling on a small group adventure with us.
