February is peak season for the Great Migration on the Serengeti plains of Tanzania. Book early for the best tented camps to experience this amazing safari! February is a good month also in Tanzania to trek Africa’s highest mountain Kilimanjaro.  In South Africa it’s still summer so treat yourself to a foodie holiday around Cape Town and the winelands. 

Tanzania---saadani-john-on-

It is also a good time to go to South America with great trekking in the Andes, wildlife in the Amazon and Pantanal of Brazil and Galapagos Cruises being popular now too. Why not trek the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu?

Peru---llamas-Machu-Picchu

It’s a good time to be in Australia and New Zealand as they enjoy their summer and the Caribbean is still a perfect place to head for some winter sun. Family half term holidays in February include ever popular ski chalets in the Alps, Arctic adventures in Lapland or for something warmer, Arabia is a great option, particularly family friendly Oman and UAE.

Dubai---Al-Maha-couple-on-d

In the Arctic, January – March is a great time for the Northern Lights, dog sledding, Ice Hotels and Adventure tours!  February half term means escape to the ski slopes – book a log cabin in Lapland or a ski chalet in the Alps, but be sure to book early as February half term is always very busy! 

Sweden---Brandon-Lodge-snow

I booked my trip in the UK through 'Travel With Jules' to avoid having to send large sums of money to a foreign bank account. Using a UK agent obviously adds to the cost, but I considered it well worth it for financial security, and certainty that there would actually be someone waiting for me when I stepped off the plane. I visited Lobeke National Park and Sangha Lodge in Dzanga Sanga National Park. Amazing sightings of forest wildlife including elephants, lowland Gorillas, sitatunga, Mangabeys, forest hogs and stunning bird life.

Just to say thank you very much for organising my travels to see my family and changing my return flight when I needed to. Everything worked out very well . Coming back from New Zealand was the quickest I have ever done and helped a lot with the jet lag.

Thank you so much for your hard work putting together our fabulous three generation family safari to Northern Tanzania. We loved everything and the highlight was our private Serengeti Camp. We all had an AMAZING time at our private camp in the Serengeti. Our hosts at the camp were all fantastic. We saw an incredible amount of wildlife and the migration was something else, we were surrounded 360 degrees by wildebeest!

Thank you for your organising our last minute city break to Palermo we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The junior suite at Hotel Quintocanto was worth the extra and you couldn't ask for a better location. We understand that the reason for the cancellation for our return flight was indeed strike action in Italy. We commend yourselves and the operator for how you handled the change to plan.
Carol & Chris – Sicily (Feb 2017)

Thank you so much for organising my trip to Australia for me! I was very unsure about travelling alone but Mags met me and talked me through the things I needed to do, such as getting travel insurance and a visa. The group I met in Alice Springs and travelled with were great fun and the tour leader was lovely. I really loved everything, it was all amazing!
Becky Baker – Australia (Feb – March 2016)
March 29, 2016

What can I say? You did it again! From the night I arrived, being welcomed back to Hemingways in Nairobi (I felt like the King of Scotland again!), to the day I left everything was a complete delight. Elephant Watch Camp is lovely, the staff there are superb. They know all the elephants by name and there were around 9 families in the area, Saba had arranged a surprise sleep out for me with the warriors! I had some amazing leopard sightings around Samburu too ... all in all very sad to leave there.
Wilf Graham – Elephant Watch, Kenya (March 2016)

Great time had by both of us, lots to see and find interesting, some bits not as good as others but none bad! Enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere at Tanjong Jara and meeting Chef Ann!! Great holiday, good memories, and thank you as ever for arranging it and for rapid responses to my emails even whilst travelling. Here's to the next one!
Jenny & David Stagg – Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore (Feb – Mar 2016)
March 23, 2016

The entire trip and booking process has been a highlight! From talking to Jules on the phone trying to decide where to go to finding out the actual experience was exactly as she described it would be. Wildlife, nature, good weather, friendly welcomes…fantastic food… perfect flights… everything! Going to Zambia in the Emerald season is a delight...
Naomi Delorme – Zambia (Feb – March 2016)
March 22, 2016

Giving us a wealth of knowledge from her years spent working in Africa, Jules soon put together the perfect holiday for us. Just back home, the holiday already seems like ages ago but we really did have the trip of a lifetime! Thank you Jules for your arrangements and making it all work so well for us (especially talking to us whilst we were flying from the Mara, not sure which air strip to get off the plane!!)
David & Sue Hughes – Kenya (Feb – March 2016)
March 24, 2016

Your impressive local knowledge filled us with confidence. Your interpretation of our specification was exacting. Travel with Jules did an incredible job. We are very grateful for the level of personal attention and customer care you offered us. There were no lowlights – it was ALL highlights! We came home promising to return to Africa....
Pippa and John – South Africa (Feb 2016)

Communication was always very clear and we always had a quick response. We were very pleased with the service we received from Travel With Jules. The Ha Long Bay Bassac boat cruise was brilliant, the crew on board were a fantastic group and did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We would definitely recommend your services to our friends.
Hannah & Richard Miller – Indo China (Feb 2016)
March 23, 2016

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for organising our lovely relaxing holiday to Thailand. All the transport worked well and the hotel on Koh Samet was just what the doctor ordered. Le Vimarn Cottages was a very quiet resort which was lovely. Banyan Tree Hotel in Bangkok was perfect - the moon bar on top was amazing well worth the very expensive G&T!
Sally Watts – Thailand (Feb 2016)
March 22, 2016

Thank you for our tailor made holiday to Cambodia and Vietnam (with Dubai stop over). You listened to what we wanted and made the changes to our itinerary as requested. The ground agents were fantastic, the guides were always on time and everything was organised very efficiently. There were many fantastic sights and experiences. Halong Bay was a particular favourite of mine.
Malc, Sue, Tony and Karen – Indo China (Jan 2016)
March 22, 2016

The trip was amazing and we got to see the Northern Lights on Saturday and Sunday nights so that’s a bonus right there! Everything went without a hitch and we are all very grateful for your professional organisation.

Cuba – what an amazing country ... the noise and bustle of Havanna, the cars, the history, the people, a place stopped in time, interesting scenery, history and culture and the most beautiful beaches!

Our family holiday to Lapland was truly wonderful, totally memorable and we have so many fantastic memories so thank-you for everything you did for us. We have throughly recommended your service to our friends as you made what was turning out to be an internet search nightmare into a total pleasure. You provide a fantastic service that is worth its weight in gold.

We drank lovely local wine (lots of it!), walked with a Cheetah (as you do!), stayed in lovely personal boutique hotels and guest houses and laughed a lot! Thank you Jules.

We loved our "adventure" in Kerala and returned home feeling quite happy! Thank you for finding this group trip and introducing us to a walking holiday. From the moment our Indian guide met us at Kochi Airport we knew we were going to have fun!
Georgie & Michael – Kerala Walking (Feb 2015)
March 1, 2015

Just a quick email to say we both really enjoyed our trip to South Africa! We loved everything but feel like we need another break as packed such a lot in!! Our highlights included Boulders beach, Abseil down Table Mountain (probably not the walk back up again!), Shark Swimming in Kleinbaai, Bungee Jump from Bloukrans […]

Thank you for booking our Hurtigruten Northern Lights Cruise to Norway, we had a really good time! The lights did apparently put in a few appearances, but several times we were asleep – managed to see a few glimpses a few times! The ship was comfortable, though it was quite choppy at times, so a […]

My Wife and I wanted to do something special to celebrate her 30th Birthday, one final big blow out of being big kids! So we decided on Disney world Florida and then a trip to New Orleans for Mardis Gras. With the big idea in place, we just let Jules and Mags sort the rest. […]

We got back from our holiday to Sweden yesterday and I just wanted to say thank you, it was great! The Tree Hotel was fabulous but it is a bit of a hike up hill in the dark on slippery walkways! Talking to the other guests, the blue cone room we had may not be a […]

For the last three years we have been using Jules to arrange our annual winter long haul holidays and have enjoyed travelling with someone else doing the organising in the full knowledge that should a problem occur we have a reliable point of contact who ensures that our enjoyment of the holiday isn't in any way spoiled. I would thoroughly recommend using 'Travel with Jules' to anyone contemplating wishing to travel on a wildlife & sightseeing adventure!

It was great to have your help, advice and guidance on where to go on our travels for our Honeymoon in Thailand. La Flora was beautiful and Khao Sok National Park and the elephants amazing! We were sad to leave but had so many great memories, thank you again for all your help to make this happen.
Kilda and Lee – Thailand (Feb 2014)
April 29, 2014

The team at the hotel were warm, friendly and keen to ensure that everything I wanted was catered for...You also have the option of cruising around the local markets and enjoying talking with locals, or jumping on a bicycle and hitting the beach or going further afield. Sounds busy and it is, but in the best possible way!! And as ever, thanks to Julie's seamless organisation, all I had to do is turn up with passport and sunglasses :)
Jim Sibree-Paul – Vietnam (Feb 2014)

A huge thank you for organising and booking our holiday to Zambia and Malawi, Norman Carr Safaris, what can we say, WOW what a great company. For the first two nights we were up graded to their 'flag ship' new camp at Chinzombo! We left with very fond memories and we really do have Africa in our hearts now. We really did 'live our dream' so thank you for making it happen.
Phil & Sue Fenning – Zambia & Malawi (Feb 2014)
March 14, 2014

Wow, we had an amazing time in Canada! We mushed huskies and ski-dooed over frozen lakes in stunning blue skies and sunshine and saw the Northern Lights in the Yukon three nights in a row!
Julie & Chris Bartlett – Canada (Feb 2014)
March 18, 2014

I just wanted to say thanks for arranging our holiday to Finland, you came up trumps again! The resort had everything we wanted, as you had told us, so we were able to go skiing as well as all the excursions (dog sledding, snowmobiles) you booked for us. The snow and scenery were fantastic, just like the brochure, which was amazing. And it was VERY cold. Quite an experience. So thanks again for your patience, understanding and organisation. We will be back, so brace yourself!
Holland Family – Finland (Feb 2014)
March 12, 2014

We just wanted to say that all the arrangements went without a hitch on our holiday to Canada. We loved the  Rosewood Georgia hotel in Vancouver, and the Château Whistler. The ‘Aerocar’ drivers were great (and always early!) The Whitehorse Yukon experience was amazing – we had terrific northern lights sightings for all three nights we were […]

Our honeymoon to Estonia, Helsinki and St Petersburg, was simply wonderful! So many great experiences, many of which we never expected, which was even better! The best city for us was most definitely Tallinn, closely followed by St Petersburg. Sailing across the Baltic on a sea of ice is something we'll never forget either! St Petersburg was superb. Hotel location was spot on. All in all, I hope you get the feeling that we had the time of our life! By far the best holiday we've ever been on exactly what a honeymoon should be and hassle free... The planning and prep that you put in to it meant that we didn't have to worry about a thing! All that's left to say is THANK YOU and we've already recommended you to our friends for future trips.
Clare & Shaun – Baltic States (February 2013)

Just a quick email to let you know we had the most amazing honeymoon in Sri Lanka. Your services were fantastic, it was easy to contact to you at times convenient for us. We were able to plan our itinerary to suit us......and make changes until we were happy with the content and hotels! Our driver, Sisi, was lovely. He was informative, great to be around & importantly a good driver!
Carla & Phil Eveleigh – Sri Lanka (February 2013)

We would all like to thank you Jules for organizing and planning our brilliant self drive holiday to South Africa at such short notice! The things we did and saw were amazing, we got up as early as we could each day to pack in a lot, we did many sight seeing tours around Cape Town including hiking up Table Mountain and Signal Hill to see the sunset. We spent hours at the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, the views were incredible. Our Holiday continued along the Garden Route with brilliant accommodation and food every where we went. To see the ocean and the coastlife, nature everywhere and the culture of the people was amazing - and the weather was great too. Thanks Jules from all of us

Julie organised our holiday to Zambia which more than met our requirements - the accommodation was excellent (we stayed with Norman Carr Safaris in South Luangwa, Mayukuyuku in Kafue and Waterberry at Livingstone), our guides for safari and birdwatching were the best available and all travel arrangements went smoothly. Julie's attention to detail and knowledge of Zambia meant that our individual wishes were met throughout our holiday. Thank you very much!
Gwynfryn & Kathryn – Zambia (February 2013)
March 1, 2013

Julie, many, many thanks for the trip you organised for us to Norway for my wife’s surprise birthday present. Your help, both recommendations and bookings, made organising a holiday a pleasurable experience and having you available by phone and on-line to sort out any possible problems was reassuring.
Peter Robinson – Northern Norway (Feb 2012)
March 27, 2012

Julie, thank you so much for helping us choose fantastic accomodation base for exploring the stunning Cayman Islands. We had a truly magical time and the organisation from start to end ensured that it was hassle free for us! Thank you so much for all the hardwork that you put in and helped us to have the most fantatsic and memorable holiday I could have hoped for.
Kilda & Lee – Cayman Islands (Feb 2012)
March 23, 2012

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
