Omega Holidays, a specialist tour operator for individuals and groups, has announced a new seven-nights escorted holiday by air from Norwich Airport to the countryside of southwest England to cover Devon, Cornwall and the Eden Project.
Departing on Sunday July 26, 2015, the escorted tour will offer tourists and travellers looking to explore the Southwest countryside with interesting historical facts and stories about the place and exploration of the quaint towns and landscapes of the two regions of Devon and Cornwall. Included in the tour is the Eden Project, said to be one of the largest greenhouses in the world and Cornwall’s most notable landmark. Eden’s giant biomes maintain miniature eco-systems that enable a varied range of plants to flourish.
The holiday includes return flights, seven night’s three-star hotel accommodation that includes three course dinner and full English breakfast, transfers and admission to the Eden Project, and full day excursions to Torquay and Dartmoor National Park. The holiday is priced from £599 per person.
Dino Toouli, Head of Sales at Omega Holidays, said ‘Having successfully operated an evening excursion to view the Northern Lights earlier this year, and a new programme of holidays to the Black Forest region of Germany and Austria this summer, we are delighted to add this fully escorted holiday to the popular regions of Devon and Cornwall from Norwich International.’
Richard Pace, Norwich Airport Operations Director & General Manager added, ‘The south west is a very popular summer destination and we are happy that Omega Holidays have taken the opportunity to include this region to the summer flights from Norwich this summer, we are sure this will prove to be a popular option for local holidaymakers.’
Omega Holidays will also offer a flight only option on the service from £99.00 return.
‘Elephant Eden’ is the name of the extravagant accommodation opening soon for a group of the elephant’s elite.
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, located just outside Bristol conjured up the concept to spoil the largest land animal in the world, who they believe should be fiercely protected from poachers who ruthlessly hunt them for their thick skin and strong tusks.
The compound has been descried as a five star spa hotel, is offering first class facilities that could rival the Ritz, including; several enormous heated swimming pools for tranquil lazy dips, special ‘health food’ to deliver the elephants extensive dietary needs and even a round the clock butler service, waiting on the animals twenty four hours a day to ensure their pampering session never dies down.
The unique one-of-a-kind establishment is due to open in 2013, when final architectural details are completed and appropriate décor has been selected.
Although there are hundreds of elephant sanctuaries all of the world, this is the only of its kind and it set to be the largest in Europe. The twenty acre complex will become the new home to four fortunate Asian female elephants and one incredibly lucky Asian male. The owners of this establishment have plans to broaden the number of residents and increase the guest list once the blessed five have settled in.
Inspiration for this exceptional and distinctive hotel may have stemmed from elephant sanctuaries in India whereby the creatures are worshipped, bathed and lightly waited on. Elephants are a symbol of wisdom in Asian cultures and are famed for their memory and intelligence. Their level of intellect is certainly believable, considering this customized palace they have managed to secure.
Anthony Bush, the proud and ambitious owner of the zoo claimed: “Elephant Eden will be a new chapter in the history of elephant accommodation.” The grand elephantine manor, a heaven on earth for elephants, is in no doubt an undisputable upgrade, from the original Noah’s Ark.
