On International Women’s Day (March 8) Exodus Travels launched its first ‘Female Only Departures’, a collection of adventure expeditions in all-female groups, while Intrepid Travel launched a range of women’s trips to north Africa and the Middle East on the same day.

Exodus Travels’ ‘Female Only Departures’ are available on the following holidays:

All the trips include flights, and will be led by a local female expert.

For every booking made on these special female departures, Exodus will donate a Freedom Kit Bag, containing two years’ worth of reusable sanitary products to these communities.

Intrepid Travels’ women’s expeditions have been designed to immerse travellers in the culture and lives of women living and working in Middle Eastern countries, where cultural norms and gender roles are different from the west. 

The expeditions will include eight-day trips in both Morocco and Jordan, and a 12-day trip in Iran. Each trip will be led by a female local expert.
