Here at B&R headquarters, there are a few things we pride ourselves on: we never fill our own glass before another’s, we cut a mean rug on the dancefloor (and occasionally the table, or the top of the B&R van), and as proud as we are of our past, we’re constantly looking to the future.

So we’re thrilled to share our 2019 Trip Portfolio with you. Whether you want to hike the jaw-dropping landscapes of New Zealand, explore the ancient sandstone walls of Petra or rub shoulders with lions on a Tanzania safari, our 2019 lineup offers a flavour of adventure for every palate.
