We're on Top of the World this Christmas!


Here we are at the top of the Harbour Bridge in Sydney


After work last Friday the whole team were lucky to sneak out of the office at 4pm and venture up, 134 meters up over Sydney Harbour (yikes). As we climbed the iconic bridge, the cloud hung low and the rains threatened but it really didn't dampen our spirits. Looking down on mist-covered buildings, the Opera House and the amazing city of Sydney was breathtaking!

After our adrenaline-fuelled afternoon, feeling pumped, we headed down to the harbour to catch our private boat and spent the evening on the water, playing Christmas games and swapping Christmas pressies. Then we cranked up the Mariah Carey, took to the dance floor and danced the night away, under the stars.

Hands down the best Christmas party EVER!


Wishing you all a fun-filled Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!

Thanks so much for all of your support this year.

In 2016 we introduced thousands to the magic of Africa, some of you returning to the continent for a second, third or even fourth time. And with so much to see and do who can blame you?

From the Wildebeest Migration in Kenya's Masai Mara to sitting amongst the endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda, or seeing Cape Town from the top of Table Mountain, to being drenched in the mist of the powerful Victoria Falls. Africa really has something for everyone!

We hope you have a fantastic Christmas and New Year and we look forward to sending you to a new corner of the African continent in 2017.

From all of us at Bench!
