From flightless birds to work. Can identify what the woman in the image alongside is making?

A lesser known peak often overlooked by many, is Mt Meru in Tanzania. Head off on a 3-4 day trek to her summit. And across in Peru, more than just the ruins can be seen on our Lakes, Desert and Ruins Tour from Lake Titicaca to Nazca to Machu Picchu.

Secrets of the Silk Road and Uzbekistan await with incredible mountain scenes and phenomenal architecture. Or take a quieter cruise across the Indian Ocean to Australia onboard the Queen Mary.

Ups and down's of Everest is in the news, and our Q&A looks at the new cost of Gorilla permits in Rwanda.

Our picture of the month reveals the stunning misty forests of Mt Kenya  and our photo series looks at the stunning Gokyo Lakes in Nepal.


Our quirky character last month certainly generated a lot of interest.  It would have been better had we added some statistics like average height and weight. Not that we have visions of our clients running around weighing these birds, but given the answers, it could have been one of two birds. So, we accepted both answers. The birds was in fact, a Rhea;  a large flightless birth from South America, related to the Emu.  Correct answers for the Rhea go to Pam Gillespie, Cary Mason, Ashwin Reddy and for the Emu, to Stuart Charlton, Sue Simpkins, Claire Keyser and Kathleen Woods. Can anyone identify the activity under way in the image above?

Question of the Month
Is it true that Gorilla permits have doubled?

Indeed, this is the case. However it has only doubled in Rwanda, not Uganda. The motivation is that more funds can be generated for conservation of the Gorilla but the most likely result is that people will head to Uganda where permits are a lot less.
 
The permit alone in Rwanda is now $1500.
