Find out which type of traveller you are!

Mostly As: You’re all ’bout that beach, ’bout that beach…

You are a relax-by-the-beach kind of traveller. Holidays are all about taking a break and treating yourself so you won’t be looking for anything too exciting. It doesn’t take much to make you happy – a few activities, beautiful beaches, a refreshing cocktail and plenty of rest and relaxation is all you need.

Recommended holidays: Zanzibar Beach Break or a Cape Town Getaway


Mostly Bs: Have you met David Attenborough? We think you’ll be good friends

You love being outdoors among nature, hiking and exploring paths off the beaten track. A nature lover through and through, jungles and rainforests don’t scare you, and certainly not the insects, animals and other wildlife that come with it. All you need are nature trails, hiking paths, and if there’s a boat ride down the river involved, even better!

Recommended holidays: Borneo Orangutan Adventure, South African Safari, Serengeti Safari or our incredible South Africa, Botswana & Tanzania Overland Combo!


Mostly Cs: Make no mistake about it – you’re a city slicker!

You’re a city person at heart, and rather than go somewhere that is as far removed from civilisation, you can’t wait to tick off yet another major city from your list. And for you, the more cosmopolitan the better! You love shopping, sightseeing, eating out at restaurants, exploring museums… everything a big city has to offer, and more!

Recommended holiday: Cape Town Tour or Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


Mostly Ds: You’re the stuff travel writers are made of… a true adventurer!

You’re extremely curious and adventurous when it comes to holidays, and you’re game for almost anything as long as it involves exciting new experiences that you can’t get anywhere else in the world. You’re not afraid to immerse yourself in different cultures and see how the locals do it – in fact, the more colourful and unusual the holiday is, the more things there are for you to explore!

Recommended holiday: Incredible India, Uganda Gorilla Trek or South Africa, Botswana & Tanzania Overland Combo!
