Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Cuba

Cuba

Take an adventure holiday in CUBA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

Cuba is an extraordinary, enigmatic country and strikingly different from its Caribbean neighbours – with an eclectic mix of historical occupations adding to its appeal. Colonised by the Spanish from the 15th century, much of the indigenous populations were wiped out and replaced by African slaves. The British ruled for a short period in the 19th century, before the US took control of the island in 1902. Despite its many revolutions and somewhat turbulent history, Cuba today is a place of peace, beauty and ancient intrigues.  Havana, Cuba’s capital city is a declared World Heritage Site and an exciting city full of music and colourful culture. In contrast the countryside is peaceful with beautiful vistas of soaring mountains carpeted in thick rainforests, gentle waterfalls, sandy beaches, exotic flora, sugarcane fields and citrus groves.

The Weather in Cuba

Cuba is a hot sub-tropical climate all year round. Most rain falls between May and October and hurricanes can occur in autumn (August to November). Humidity varies between 75 per cent and 95 per cent. Cooler months are January to April when the least rain falls.November-April is the preferred months to travel to Cuba, when the day temperatures are in the 70s-80s F/23-32 C, with nights in the 60s-70s F/15-27 C. Trade winds keep things tolerable when the heat and humidity rise, and it's usually warm and sunny. September-October is the peak of the hurricane season. August can be stiflingly hot -- no wind and little rain. We recommend you pack lightweight cottons and linens most of the year; the high humidity makes it unwise to wear synthetics close to the skin. Light waterproofs are advisable all year round.
