Cover of December 2015 issue - National Geographic Traveller (UK)
  • Cover Story: We step into the Amazon to discover its exotic, endemic and often elusive animals. From caimans to jaguars, pink river dolphins to poison dart frogs, we guide you on a jungle safari.
  • Destinations: Elsewhere, we dive into the amazing sinkholes of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula for some seriously wild swimming, discover the wonders of Malawi’s ‘Lake of Stars’, go stargazing in Tenerife, explore the time-worn towns and cities of Russia’s Golden Ring and head inland to Mauritius’s lush interior.
