When Lockdown Lifts - Where To Travel

While we are all in lockdown, with travel on pause, people are now starting to consider what they want to get out of a holiday experience.

Whether your main priority - once Coronavirus is behind us - is reconnecting with family, getting back to nature or enjoying a well-deserved spa break, there is something for everyone.

Bucket list ideas range from outstanding Indian wellness retreats, coffee painting in Ethiopia, a private island getaway in Malaysia or indulging in a cliff-top eco-lodge above the South-African Nambiti Reserve.
