Spring is approaching and our feet are itching, yet at the time of writing, we still can’t travel. But what we can do is dream and plan ahead. We’ve had so much feedback that when you can travel again, you want to do something really special to make up for lost time. Hence, we’ve rounded up 21 ideas for 2021 big trips that will help make up for the many months without travel (p54). We also tease you with a visit to a legendary destination on many of our wish lists, Easter Island (p36), while any wildlife lover will want to see pangolins in South Africa (p70). But, if you can’t manage any of those this year, we also explore the beautiful Cotswolds by foot, avoiding the tourist hotspots (p84). As the…

On a roll... Meru National Park, Kenya “Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.” Ralph Waldo Emerson While we’re all looking forwards towards a new dawn – especially ones that ideally involve Meru National Park and/or lions – it’s important to remember that these astonishing animals are desperately in need of a change in fortune themselves. With only between 60-80 African lions left in Meru, time is running out to safeguard their future. One way you can help, and make your coffee table look wonderfully wild at the same time, is by purchasing the splendid new book, Lion: Pride Before The Fall. A collection of images taken by acclaimed wildlife photographer George Logan over the course of a decade, all profits from the book go to Born Free’s Last Lions of…

Star letter Backyard breaks I was pleased to see your article, ‘New Year, New View’ [Jan/Feb ’21 issue] as I’m ahead of the curve on this one. In September I decided to visit Sussex as if I was visiting a foreign country for the first time. I took along the Bradt Slow Sussex guide and had a very enjoyable three days, only two hours from home, in a part of the world I knew little about. Visiting Chichester, Arundel, Bodiam Castle (pictured), Winchelsea, Battle, Beachy Head, Seven Sisters and Rye, and having fish and chips on the promenade at Hastings were as interesting and inspiring as a trip several hours away by plane. I would thoroughly recommend ‘exploring your backyard’ as an option for 2021, especially if overseas destinations are slow to open…
