A bit disappointing really
Sri Lanka birding & cultural tour
From
£1,500
excluding flights
This was the most fantastic vacation. I was not that keen on going, but my husband is a very keen birder and he really wanted to go. I am now so glad he persuaded me, and will definitely visit Sri Lanka again... (more)John Diley
This was a really excellent vacation. We had fun, we were stimulated, we were educated and we made good friends with our locals who showed us their country. We also feel that we had excellent value for money with two locals, a new vehicle, most meals, all entrance fees and other extras included for a very inexpensive daily rate. (more)Keith Pigdon
It was great and our guide, Jith, was an incredible birder, funny, and generous. The most memorable was the smiles of all the people in Sri Lanka whom we passed in our bird walks and the children who got all excited and waved and called to us (more)Gisela Meyn
History, culture & wildlife of India vacation
From
£1,336
excluding flights
My stay at the Wild Mahseer in Assam was very special. Great hospitality, beautiful lodgings and interesting environmental projects. (more)Liz Mcmanus
I have told the vacation provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox

Fantastic! We constantly remember different things and look at the photos. Staying with a local family - our daughters got so much out of it. (more)Sarah Madeley
Malawi self drive holiday
From
£2,400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Mvuu camp and the night safaris Tips? Before leaving, i suggest to buy maps and guides because you will not find any tourist indication. They prefer to provide you a guide instead of selling maps and written indication. Local benefits? Yes, I think so for the majority of lodges in which we stayed. Overall rating? 10/10 (more)Giulia Rap
Endangered wildlife tour in India
From
£990
excluding flights
Staying at Bagheera camp was the most memorable part; the safaris we went on were all amazing, the highlights being the sunrise over the wetlands and seeing a leopard and cubs. (more)April Finka

Okavango Delta tailor made safari in Botswana
From
£3,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Up close and personal with the wild animals on safari Tips? Can be cold on the morning game drives and take DEET insect repellent. Don't have too high expectations of animal sightings and then everything is a real treat. Local benefits? Very eco friendly, solar power and recycling etc. All staff were locals and seemed to really enjoy their work. Overall rating? Excellent. Not cheap but we didn't need to spend any extra money except for tips and... (more)Janet Gaten
Isle of Mull wildlife vacation in Scotland
From
£785
excluding flights
At one point we were surrounded by a large family of bottle nose dolphins playing (more)Liz Lester
I have the strong feeling that the accommodation and the tours were made with local people seriously engaged in the preservation of nature. It was a great vacation! (more)Luc Deneys
Mull is a wonderful island where you will not find a disappointing view. The wildlife trips organized as part of the vacation package were excellent. Each trip was conducted by very professional and knowledgeable experts covering all aspects of the local flora and fauna. (more)David Hayers
India bird watching vacation in the Himalayas
From
£1,000
excluding flights
For us the nature based activities and birdwatching were tremendous. We had some really good guides and got to see tigers and a leopard which is very rare. The people, the culture and the environment were very exotic to us. (more)Dianne Reidy
Seeing the Taj Mahal at Sunrise is an unforgettable event in our lives. Many special rare species of birds seen on our Birding Himalyan tour...Superbly organised. (more)Michael Clark
The bird watching was excellent...Bird guides were very good too, and all knew their local birds. However outstanding was Sunil (Kumar?) in Nainital. His excellent English made our outings a great pleasure (more)Jacky Davis
Borneo tailor made vacations, wildlife & beaches
From
US $2,765
excluding flights
10 out of 10...the most memorable moment was seeing the Pygmy elephants on the banks of the Kinabatangan river playing, tugging up plants and placing them on their head. (more)Gill Bowles
We really enjoyed it and it lived up to expectations. (more)Steve Jameson
The most memorable part of the vacation was 100 pygmy elephants on the bank of the Kinabatangan River...Brilliant. Would do it again, and spend more time in each place. (more)Katie Southgate

From
£3,500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Swimming with sea-lions in the Galapagos. Tips? Don't delay! There wasn't anything I could fault. Local benefits?

From
£3,800
excluding flights
The most memorable was The vast variety of animals and birds observed often in large numbers and close up. (more)Geoff Hill
A marvellous vacation that exceeded expectations in all areas! Most memorable was the incredible wildlife in both Selous and Ruaha national Parks, plus the coral reefs we saw around Mafia Island - truly spectacular. Lack of other tourists was a major plus. (more)Liz Taylor
Everything was wonderful. The setting perhaps captures most of it - staying in beautiful places in the midst of the national parks and conservation areas, where the animals were everywhere (from in camp to close by during game drives). (more)Laura Dukess
Sabah & Sarawak vacation in Borneo
From
US $2,495
excluding flights
It was an amazing wildlife adventure - I feel very fortunate to have seen freshly hatched baby green turtles and wild orangutans. (more)Claire Onody
There were many memorable moments. Too few to fully list out! One destination was the Gomantong Birdnest Caves. The main cave tests all your senses. Certainly a location for the next Indiana Jones film, not for flip-flop wearing tourists! (more)Jonathan Reed-Lethbridge
Volunteering Thailand, wildlife rescue centre
From
£599
excluding flights
I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. It’s hard to say what was the most memorable part of this vacation as there was so much variety and different experiences, it’s difficult to decide what was the best part of it. (more)Cathy Bisset
I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney
Chitwan safari & rafting in Nepal
From
US $485

Superb! Nothing like it! (more)Naufier Mohamed
Tadoba National park tiger safari, India
From
£900
excluding flights
The most memorable moment was staying at the lodge, in the buffer zone, listening to the night around a bonfire with wonderful snacks and a gin and tonic, then visiting the local villages on a walk the following day. The jungle safaris were amazing particularly the elephant back experience and of course seeing the tigers. (more)Julia Killick
The most memorable was having the most amazing Tiger sightings. Superb, we had a great time and enjoyed both Tadoba and Kanha national parks, the lodges we stayed at and saw some amazing wildlife and birds too. (more)Jo Gaunt

Galapagos activity & wildlife vacation, land based
From
£4,240
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it ! Surpassed expectations. Micromanagement by competent guides impressive. Just one guide did not speak adequate English ( on a boat tour ) Tips? Do not even clean teeth using local water. Sea water can be quite cold ( especially at Kicker Rock). Wet suit hire is cheap and advisable for some Good mosquito prophylaxis essential Local benefits? Cannot really comment - I fear for the Galapagos with plans to increase tourism dramatically (200,000 - 500,000... (more)Elizabeth Powell-Brett
Great Wildebeest Migration Safari in Kenya and Tanzania, 10 days
From
US $3,330
excluding flights
The best way to see the Wild life in Eastern Africa and the best way to go on Safari. If trekking was possible through the Masai Mara this would have been the only better way to see these amazing animals. For obvious reasons trekking is not possible and going in a car is the second best option. (more)Tomas Gregersen
The safari was a highlight and a very nice guide named Jackson from the tour operator. The guide was always there in time and very helpful. (more)Cathrin Skogly

Kerala birdwatching vacations, Western Ghats
From
US $1,360
excluding flights
The tea plantations are photogenic in a very special way: so impossibly green in the sun. Walking in the forests near Periyar was like being in heaven: in the shade, beautiful birds, no other people around and with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. (more)Christopher Smith
The vacation could not have gone any smoother and our thanks to Thomas for recommending the wonderful Graman Homestay for a break before our bird watching trip began. We more or less just sat in the garden and relaxed whilst Jos and his wife looked after us and gave us some wonderful food. Different Kerala dishes every day. (more)Christopher Wyeth
Many memorable parts - wonderful bird watching trips, cycling in the backwaters, relaxing and enjoying the Keralan food and scenery. (more)Moyra Williams

Where to start! The lions, the leopard and her cub, the jungle cat kitten, or the magical sighting of wolves. The insight into Gujarati culture was also unforgettable and we were grateful to our driver, Mr Khuman Singh, for not only finding us so much wildlife but also introducing us to local people from all walks of life.

Malaysia tailor made vacation
From
US $1,695
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Difficult to say as all four venues were wonderful but Pangkor Laut Island was just perfect. Not cheap but worth it, the resort and staff were absolutely fantastic, definitely a 5 star location. Tips? Bear in mind the travel required, most transfers were around three hours so this can eat into a day in soom places so book an extra night where you think you may not have enough time but on the whole 2 or 3 nights is plenty to get a good view of all the areas. Local... (more)Julie Dyson

Swim with dolphins in Egypt
From
£474
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Put simply, this is probably one of the best vacations I've ever been on and this is largely down to the exceptional customer care that this company offers both in the UK and in Egypt. The highlight of course was swimming with wild dolphins out in a protected reef in the middle of beautiful clear blue sea. Beyond that though the location, the food, the helpfulness of the staff, the accommodation and the attention to detail were all excellent. 2. What tips would you give... (more)Candida Perkis

excluding flights
Unbelievable, fantastic, amazing etc. EVERY day was perfect. It was our honeymoon and so many little touches and extra effort was made for us. It really was magical. Thank you. (more)Ross Smith
The climb up Mount Kinabalu probably stands out as the best bit. An incredibly tough assent followed by a somewhat painful descent but what a sense of achievement and sat at the summit watching the sunrise having made the climb took away what little breath we had left! (more)Alexandra Glenn
Lots of it was exciting but seeing the Orangutans in the wild has to be the best bit. (more)Phil Pinchen
