National Geographic Traveller (UK) December 2018 — available on newsstands now

LONDON (1 November 2018) — This month, we step out of the jeep to discover Africa from a different perspective. Whether on foot, horseback or by boat, we’re showcasing the continent’s wild side on an active safari across Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and more.

From fly-camping in the Serengeti to hot air ballooning over the Maasai Mara, we explore the many ways to experience the incredible range of wildlife — and to appreciate the beauty in small things.

PLUS free with the magazine is an 84-page Salzburgerland guide AND the third issue of the 132-page National Geographic Traveller Food, which celebrates winter warmers — those hot and hearty dishes worth wrapping up for. We’ve searched the world’s most wondrous wintry destinations to bring you 18 of the best, from Swiss fondue and Tuscan bean soup to German goose and Nepalese dumplings.


Destinations: We go north of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland; discover Japan’s Tohoku region; and spend a long weekend in Vilnius. Our photo story unearths the long tradition of gold panning in Costa Rica.
Cities: Our urban highlights this issue include Lima, Fife, Budapest, San Francisco and Turin.
Smart Traveller: An Andy Warhol retrospective; Cambodia’s new hotel openings; new ways to experience the northern lights; a seafood trail in Sweden; a taste of Long Island; the best rooms in Santa Fe; Hong Kong’s bar scene; and a trip to South Dorset.
Author Series: Shaun Prescott on Bathurst in New South Wales.
Travel Geeks: Ask the Experts includes tips on planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast, hand luggage restrictions for baby milk, plus recommendations for hiking in the Caribbean.
PLUS: Our annual Photography Competition, in association with Donegal Tourism, is still open for entries. Entrants can submit their work in one of the four single-shot categories — Cities, Food, Nature and People — or up to 10 images on the same subject or theme in the Portfolio category: natgeotraveller.co.uk/photo-competition-2019/
