Bushbaby Travel: Inspiring travel for life
Washington Capitol

USA, North America & Caribbean

Here we feature a wide range of destinations to suit, whether you are seeking an exciting road-trip or planning a pre-Christmas shopping break in New York.

Washington Capitol

Sun-drenched California makes a prefect venue for the former. Fly in to San Francisco and drive 'The Big Sur' down to LA, perhaps stopping in Yosemite en-route. One of our favourite destinations is Montana, home to Yellowstone National Park and some excellent ranches, whilst a trip to the Grand Canyon ranks high on many holiday wish lists. The West coast can be combined with the wilds of British Columbia, Canada or the more tropical venue of Hawaii.

If you are thinking of staying East, our holidays include fly drives from Washington DC to Boston, taking in New York and Cape Cod, or shorter City stays. Florida not only offers the theme parks of Orlando but also the nature-rich coast of the Gulf of Mexico whilst Miami also has excellent onward links to the Caribbean.
