National Geographic Traveller (UK) December 2014

LONDON (6 November 2014) — The December 2014 issue of the 180-page National Geographic Traveller (UK) has hit the newsstands with a free Indian Ocean Guide.

Cover Story: Our cover story this month takes us on safari as we reveal seven of Africa’s upcoming destinations, from beach and bush tours of Mozambique to the best small reserves in Malawi and Madagascar. Plus the top places to see Uganda’s incredible birdlife, the wildest routes around Namibia’s deserts and how to recreate that Out of Africa atmosphere in the old-school tented camps of Zimbabwe.

Destinations: We head beyond the beach resorts to seek out local life in the fishing villages of Fiji; and we continue the island hopping across the Indonesian archipelago, revelling in its strange volcanic landscape and even weirder wildlife. On the other side of the world, we take a road trip through the mountains and artsy villages of Upstate New York; and explore the wild Atlantic outpost of the Faroe Islands.

Cities: Elsewhere, we tick off the best parties, pads and popular restaurants in Rotterdam, Sydney and Kyoto, and we roam the streets of Montreal to bring you our favourite places to bed down for the night.

Smart Traveller: Discover Sicily’s best wines, hotels
under £100 in Cape Town and Auckland’s highlights. Plus, why you should go to Cali, columns
and checklists.

Author Series: Paul Rosolie on Peru.

Travel Talk: Ask the experts about your travel dilemmas.
Features: Earn the stamps, and the blisters, on the Camino de Santiago; plus those who travel the world country-ticking.

FREE Indian Ocean Guide: Discover the natural wonders of the Indian Ocean from the Maldives to Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Mauritius and beyond.

National Geographic Traveler (USA) is the world’s most widely read travel magazine, created in 1984. It championed sustainable travel before it was cool and, eight times annually, celebrates journeys that are about place, experience, culture, authenticity, living like the locals and great photography. It makes a distinction between tourism and travel and stresses inquisitive, not acquisitive, trips. It employs storytelling and outstanding photography to inspire readers to pick up and go, eschewing fashion and fluff in favour of articles that offer a strong sense of place, inspiring narratives that make readers take trips, and solid service information to help them plan those trips.
