National Geographic Traveller - September 2016 issue
  • Cover Story: In our September cover story, we meet some of the continent’s most charming characters – from a Maasai bead-worker to a South African shark expert, and an eco-visionary making waves in Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains.
  • Destinations:  Elsewhere, we head to Brazil’s coast to discover vibrant Paraty; venture to the Outer Hebridean island of Lewis and Harris; saddle-up for a Wild West adventure in Cuba; spend a long weekend in Spain; and enjoy a Caribbean feast on Nevis. Our picture story, meanwhile, captures the villages of Hong Kong.
