Whitsand Nature Reserve, in the north of South Africa, is a beautiful place tucked away in the hills where you can relax amongst nature or throw yourself down a sand dune on a plank of wood.
The Danakil Depression is the hottest place on earth with an average daily temperature of 35 degrees, it lies -116m below sea level and is one of the driest and most tectonically active places on the planet. Here you will find salt flats and salt mountains, bubbling sulphur pools and active volcanoes, dotted with villages of the Afar people.
The west coast of Tasmania is all winding mountain roads, forest shrouded in mist and hidden lakes. It's a stark contrast to the idyllic beaches of the east coast, and just as beautiful in its own way.

What better way to start the new year than road tripping in a fancy Jeep with two amazing people after spending a firework-filled night down at Sydney Harbour?
