July/August 2012

In this issue

July/August 2012 • On sale 22 June

Our adventure-seeking July/August issue will plunge you head first into steamy jungles, endless wildernesses and isolated ruins. Explore the exotic lands and tribes of Papua New Guinea, the mystical world of the Maya (in a 25-page special) and stop off in Botswana for bushmen and BIG lions.

For something soothing, roadtrip with Will Gray through Norway's rugged coastal islands looking for whales and Viking tales, or take to the rebel trails and grand canyons of the Peak District for something closer to home.

Don't miss guides to magical Venice, Loch Ness (minus the monster sightings), Kenya's Lake Nakaru and Bangkok for free.

Plus learn how to bellydance, travel by motorbike, take action photographs, use natural medicines and more.
