Diary of a Marathon Ape Man

One of the world's leading great ape conservation experts Ian Redmond will be running in the Flora London Marathon on Sunday April 18th 2004 in aid of the Ape Alliance and Born Free Ape Projects - from Gentil and other chimp orphans at Lwiro Sanctuary in Congo, to the UN Great Apes Survival Project.

Born Free will be monitoring his progress as he juggles his vital conservation work with preparation for the great race and Caribzones is proud to be associated with this worthy cause.



The UK’s most exciting travel show is 10 years old next year and has invited a host of celebrities and travel experts to celebrate in style. The Show will take place on 5-8 February 2004 at a home of London’s Earls Court, where visitors will be able to experience the sights and sounds of hundreds of holiday ideas all under one roof.

Every travelling taste will be catered for from adventure experiences, safaris and cultural city breaks through to exotic island and beach holidays and almost everything in between.

In addition to the representatives from over 400 travel companies, airlines and tourist boards, the Show will also feature celebrities including Loyd Grosman and Sankha Guha. Visitors will have the opportunities to hear the inspiring travel stories of Bear Grylls, the youngest Briton to reach the top of Mount Everest, Ben Saunders who, at the age of just 23 became the youngest person ever to attempt a North Pole expedition, Clive Tully, the writer and broadcaster who in 2002 attempted to break the world record for circumnavigating the globe by powerboat, and Mark Tully, the former BBC India correspondent will be talking about his book - India in Slow Motion.

On Thursday night the show will stay open late for World Carnival, with London Notting Hill Carnival Ltd leading an international procession of Irish dancers, Dhol drummers, Chinese Lions and Japanese Taiko drummers. Visitors can also take part in calypso dancing lessons and a steel band interactive tuition session.

An exciting feature for 2004 is Destinations Sensations, which will help to bring travel brochures to life! Visitors will be able to have a hands-on experience of the flavour of a myriad of other countries by sampling their food, drink, music, dancing, customs and cultures. There will be everything from lessons in how to tie a sari to rum tasting from the Bahamas, from Indian henna artists to belly dancing, from a Vietnamese costume show to lessons in cigar rolling and from costumed Vikings to basket weaving demonstrations.

There will also be a dynamic and colourful mix of entertainment at the Show’s World Music Stage. This year’s performers will include the German State Operetta who are being flown in specially for the occasion. There will also be native bands from Indonesia, Ghana and Brazil, traditional dancers from Sri Lanka and Tanzania, Indian Khatak dancers, Aboriginal dancers from Australia, and Chinese lions as well as a Welsh choir from closer to home!

In the Meet the Expert Theatres a host of celebrities, travel writers and experts will be on-hand to provide stimulating travel discussion and to share their holiday advice and experiences. Topics will range from Trekking Across the World, Expedition Cruising, Choosing the Right Safari, to A Touch of Luxury In Botswana and Cambodia – land of the Angkor. In addition, the Responsible Travel Pavilion will show travellers how they can give the world a break when they go on holiday.

“Destinations is Britain’s biggest brand in consumer travel shows and we are expecting our 10th anniversary to be our most exciting event ever,” says Show Director Lee Masters. “Our aim is to bring the travel brochures to life so our visitors can get under the skin of the destinations and cultures of the world and be inspired to find out more. We hope that anyone with a passion for travel, or anyone looking for fresh holiday ideas and special deals will come to the event and have a great day out.”
