In this issue the focus is on travelling with purpose, why you travel and how you can make a difference when you do. Giving back is at the heart of what we do at VLE, we think globally but act locally. We’re all huge believers in people giving back and doing things for others.

I would really encourage you to get involved the next time you travel. If you’ve seen what’s been achieved at the Eve Branson Foundation in Morocco, or by the Pride ‘n Purpose team at Ulusaba in South Africa then you’ll know what I mean.

Happy reading and best wishes,

Jon Brown, Managing Director


Mahali Mzuri

Immerse yourself with the Maasai people during your stay and get a flavour for life in the local community.


We catch up with Amanda and David, the Pride 'n Purpose team, to find out how the latest initatives are supporting communities living adjacent to the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Travel with purpose

Son Bunyola

Beyond the gates of our Son Bunyola estate there's an island waiting to be discovered. Take the old train to Sóller and explore the fascinating history and stunning local art.

All aboard!

Mont Rochelle

Combining a trip to family friendly Franschhoek in the winelands with a roaringly good safari in the Sabi Sand, or the Maasai Mara, is a winning African combination.

Winelands & Wildlife

Kasbah Tamadot

After exploring the souks, trade the hustle and bustle of Marrakech for exploring the tranquil valleys and Berber villages hidden within the High Atlas Mountains.

Take the scenic route

The Lodge

The Swiss Alps isn’t just for skiing - each summer Verbier turns into an adrenalin junkies playground with a whole host of exciting events to take part in and watch with awe.

What's on this summer?

Necker Island

You’ll spot a stunning array of wildlife from the moment you arrive, from the flamingos and scarlet ibis flying overhead to the giant tortoises wandering around and with a successful breeding programme in place there's plenty of new faces to meet!
