A personal message from our founder, Claire Farley
Claire Farley Managing Director 2by2 Holidays
Tailor made holidays, safari & wildife tours to Africa, India & Latin America have been my life for the past 20 years and St Augustine’s famous quote remains as true to me now, as it was when I first set up 2by2 Holidays – “The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only one page”.
 
My first love was Africa, the place of my birth. Its remarkable wildlife and cultures continue to captivate me today. A recent visit to the gorillas of Uganda has starkly reminded me just how fragile the survival of so many endangered species remain and reinforced my belief that safari holidays must always have conservation at their heart. In recent years I have discovered the joys of travel to Latin America and the Indian subcontinent, which are brimming with wildlife - ranging from apex predators such as tigers, jaguars and pumas to incredible rainforest wildlife such as sloths, nesting sea turtles and truly astonishing neo-tropical birdlife.
 
Our latest initiative has been growing Auriel Holidays to bring you more tailor made holidays in the UK, Europe and Worldwide - including the orangutans of Bornea, the wildlife of Canada and the polar bears of the Arctic. I’m particularly thrilled that so many of our customers return time after time, so I do hope our website inspires you to start planning your next trip, as crafting unforgettable tailor made holidays, safari & wildlife tours is our passion - and what we do best!

Hotels and Accommodation
Hotels and accommodation
Most of our destinations offer visitors a broad choice of accommodation styles, ranging from fine hotels to secluded safari lodges located deep in the bush. Sometimes a rest camp in a national park may be the best option. At other times a delightful ownerrun guesthouse fits the bill. For a special treat, laidback houseboats and river cruises or luxury trains can be incorporated into many itineraries. Our style guide aims to give you an idea of what to expect at each of the main types of accommodation we offer.
 
Most of our holidays are tailor-made, so whether you like small characterful guest houses, stylish boutique hotels or world-class 5-star luxury, we can recommend exactly the right mix of properties for a perfect trip. Our destinations abound with magnificent landscapes, gorgeous coastlines and iconic locations, and much of the accommodation we offer is set in stunning surroundings. Here is a small selection of some of our favourite hotels and lodges to give you a taste of the outstanding choices that we can provide.
Some of our inspirational destinations!
On Guatemala and Belize holidays & tours you can combine two wonderful Central American countries - exploring their ancient Mayan ruins, jungle wildlife, Spanish colonial history, stunning mountain landscapes, indigenous customs and handcrafts, and glorious Caribbean beaches. These include the well preserved colonial town of Antigua, beautiful Lake Atitlan and the breathtaking Tikal Mayan Ruins. Between 250 and 900 AD this was the heart of the fabled Mayan Empire, and today Guatemala and Belize holidays & tours attract millions of visitors who come to visit these famous ruins. The turquoise Caribbean waters and coral beaches of Belize are only a short flight away, so these two countries are often combined in one holiday.
Holidays to Mexico City and Mayan tours of the Yucatan Peninsula are often combined with Cancun all inclusive packages. They offer everything you could wish for in a holiday, from ancient Aztec and Mayan civilisations and charming Spanish colonial cities, to stunning landscapes, indigenous Indian villages, fun-loving musical and artistic people, luxury resorts set on stunning Caribbean beaches and some of the best food in the world!
The former British colony of Belize (British Honduras) was part of the great Mayan civilisation, with thick jungle sheltering fascinating Mayan ruins and a glorious Caribbean coastline scattered with hundreds of ‘cayes’ (low-lying coral islands). Holidays to Belize and Guatemala Mayan ruins are often combined, as these close neighbours have preserved some of the best Mayan ruins in the Americas. Costa Rica wildlife tours can also be easily added. The people are warm and friendly and, uniquely in Central America, English is the first language.
Nicaragua and Costa Rica holidays combine beautiful colonial cites with indigenous culture, wonderful wildlife, pristine rainforests and glorious beaches. The elegant city of Granada is set on the shores of Lake Nicaragua and is surrounded by volcanoes. The city of Leon matches Granada in colonial splendour, but has more political and intellectual buzz, whilst Montelimar offers pristine wetlands and beaches.
Holidays to Chile and Easter Island, combined with the capital city of Santiago, fascinating Atacama tours & stunning Patagonia packages will introduce you to a spectacularly beautiful country, with some of the most geologically diverse landscapes in the world. Chile is 2,650 miles long, but only 110 miles wide - giving this lengthy, thin country situated to the west of the mighty Andes mountains a huge variation in scenery and climate.
