Cover of September 2012 issue - National Geographic Traveller (UK)
  • Cover Story: Island hideaways — From the curious Italian isola of Pantelleria and the beguiling, exotic Zanzibar to Thailand’s lesser-known islands and, closer to home, the Shetland Islands, we’ve selected some of the planet’s most unspoilt and decidedly charming islands.
  • Destinations: Tribal tales in Ecuador; the beauty of Croatia; the ’stans of Central Asia; a long weekend in Newcastle; and marvel at the new heart of South Africa.
  • Real Life: A family adventure — young ‘explorers’ tackle Morocco. And Airbnb — the latest travel trend put to the test.
