Straddling Asia and Europe, Istanbul is a wonderful city to add to any trip. Get lost in the winding alleyways of the Grand Bazaar. Absorb the grandness of the Blue Mosque while taking in the smallest of details not overlooked. Watch the traditional dancers perform the Dervishes whirl while enjoying a local cup of tea or participate in an elaborate coffee ceremony. Visit a hammam, a local bathhouse to cleanse your skin and your soul.

Looking left and looking right, your eyes try to pick out something moving among the bush, for the faintest sway of a bush to indicate wildlife is just beyond.  Without the trained eye of someone who grew up in these savannahs, it is more often than not your guide who will point out that first glimpse of wildlife, earning them the nickname binocular eyes. Seeing animals in their natural habitat is a truly remarkable experience.
