Culture

Africa, Latin America & Indian Subcontinent
 
Experiencing local customs is part and parcel of many of our Cultural Holidays and we can plan a trip for you around unique festivals or cultural events throughout Africa, Latin America and the Indian Subcontinent.
 
Southern & East Africa
 
In South Africa you can visit the Zulu & Xhosa tribes, as well as the two small neighbouring kingdoms of Swaziland & Lesotho. In Kenya you can visit the colourful Maasai and Samburu people, and in Ethiopia you can experience the many unique tribes of the Omo Valley and their festivals.
 
Latin America
 
In Latin America the countries with most cultural appeal are Peru, Ecuador and Colombia, with their Inca roots. Brazil offers a flamboyant multi-cultural carnival & dance culture, as well as the Afro/Caribbean culture of Salvador. Central America also has a rich cutural diversity, with Mexico and Panama having special appeal.  
 
Indian Subcontinent
 
India and Sri Lanka are also both fascinating cultural destinations, with a rich and ancient history, and trekking through the Himalayas in Nepal will give you a fascinating insight into their culture.
