reviews for Wildlife vacations in Maldives
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the vacations. In addition, we don't run these vacations ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice. Read our review policy
I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Swimming with the megafauna (whale sharks and manta)
Practice snorkelling beforehand if you're not used to it, but if you are, then you'll be fine.
If seasick in the slightest, bring the necessary medicine; you don't want to waste boat time being ill.
If sensitive to the sun, be prepared to put on lots of sunscreen frequently, and take seriously covering up against the sun.
I think the program does support the local island economy.... (more)Nuraini Arsad
We experienced the real Maldives, met local people and learnt about their kindness and dignity. We accepted their costumes and in exchange they showed us beautiful places. Often the local beach in the island was exclusively for us. Islands and the sea are amazing, every snorkel, dive or boat trip is a magic surprise.
Be ready to accept what is offered to you and to abide to local rules, no fancy clothing required, water activities will take up most of your time.... (more)Veronica Vigano
