Sabbaticals are mind-expanding and life-altering journeys that can ignite or fuel your passions

Luxury sabbatical holidays

We are firm believers that travel can be truly transformative, especially when you have slightly longer to experience and understand a contrasting culture.

Many of our destinations lend themselves to planning and executing that extraordinary special long-haul extended travel and unforgettable sabbatical holiday. Whether you want to go trekking in South America or experience a multitude of different cultures in Asia, we can create the perfect sabbatical holidays and career breaks to ensure you have the best time of your life.

It takes that extra bit of time to see Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos all in one trip but you need it expertly handled to use that time well and make sure you don’t waste a single day. And for those who want to do more than scratch the surface of Africa, it is often a slightly longer trip, such as a sabbatical, in the company of a really specialist guide which affords this.


Tailor-made itineraries

These are simply suggestions for the kind of sabbitcal holidays you might have. Yours will
be tailored, altered, and refined until it matches you completely.

Client testimonials

Wonderful month in Chile and Argentina

We wanted to do some things together and some differently due to different interests and physical capabilities. Karen and colleagues listened carefully and planned a holiday which fully met a tricky brief. All of the accommodation was wonderful and we had amazing guides. The detail which went into the planning and delivery was outstanding. Every pick up every transfer the timing of internal flights the range and diversity of the trip everything was excellent.

Second Vacation as Good as First

This was our second vacation through C&L and it was as spectacular and beautifully planned as the first. Always perfect properties and top notch guides. But this time, thanks to a small injury, we also learned how great it is to have their team on our side when things don’t go as planned. Great communication and connections on the ground allowed us to continue our vacation without missing a beat.

A week to remember for life!

It was a very complete journey…With an excellent guide,and a good driver and well chosen hotels to stay (we will never forget Discovery Bedu in the desert). We also enjoy the extra activities like the cooking lesson, or the horse and camel riding.
