This trip will forever stay in my heart. Incredible. I would go again tomorrow if I got the chance. (more)Helen Connolly
Fantastic - it's more than a vacation and is so different to anything else I have ever done. South Georgia is an amazing place. The beaches were packed with tens of thousands of penguins and they weren't afraid to come right up to us. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful. (more)rebecca allcock

The second was sea kayaking around Danco Island. The water was still, there were iceberg all over the place which we paddled through, and penguins were jumping out of the water all around us. The landscape was stunning, and I will never forget this activity. (more)Jack Clancy

Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group camping safari
From
US $2,610
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every day was a different wonder but the two days wild camping at the Okavanga Delta were really special. Tips? Be prepared for very early starts and not much relaxing times. Local benefits? Yes, local guides were used in a number of locations but obviously driving such long distances is not exactly environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)christina monson
Wilderness activity vacation with huskies in Finland
From
€1,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hmm, all of it, we had such a great time I couldn't really pick any one thing over the rest Tips? Local benefits? Yes to all three. Overall rating? One of the best experiences ever, could not recommend this vacation enough (more)Paul Ashby
Snow Leopard tracking in the Himalayas
From
£2,395
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Actually being able to watch snow leopards in the wild - the main aim of the trip. We spent nearly 50 hours watching interaction between several different cats including hunting and mating. Tips? Make sure you have good telescope, binoculars and camera lenses. Even if you don't see snow leopards, they are needed for the birdlife. Suggest getting a solar powered charger for electrical equipment - they don't weigh much and work really well. Have a care if you suffer... (more)Liz Cooke
Uganda wildlife and activity vacation
From
£2,490
excluding flights
The whole trip was marvellous. The white water rafting very memorable, safari drives and river trips great but if I have to choose the most memorable thing it would of course be the gorilla trekking followed closely by the chimpanzee trekking. A wonderful vacation and well looked after by Alex our driver and guide. (more)Christin Monson
The most memorable part of the vacation was the mountain gorrilas - great trek into the mountains spending over an hour with the gorillas. The scenery was stunning which topped off the experience. (more)Kate Cullen
This was the perfect trip: great places, great people, good value for money. We couldn't have wished for anything more. (more)Sabine Mosch
Photography vacation in the Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,395
excluding flights
One of my favourite ever vacations.! I would heartily recommend the place and the area to either walkers or photographers, or to anyone else for that matter. It is a hidden corner of Spain unknown to almost all visitors who flock to the sunbeds on the costas. (more)Colin Barclay
Each day was different, an adventure so difficult to point to any one specific highlight. Suffice to say this was one of the more memorable Photography Workshops I have been on. (more)Bert Hand
This is definitely one of the best vacations I have been on, such a wonderful mix of things, and it will definitely push you to your limits, well at least for me it did! (more)Marie-Louise Garratt
Small group adventure vacation in Uganda
From
£1,600
excluding flights
The most memorable moment was the trek to see the gorillas. Excellent, would thoroughly recommend it. (more)Avril Ronald
The entire vacation was memorable. There are countless experiences that I will always remember. Having the opportunity to track and then spend an hour with the mountain gorillas was perhaps the most memorable. (more)Robert Roberto
Spotting the Gorillas in The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was the most memorable part...I travelled alone and as a 50 something year old female felt totally at ease throughout the trip. (more)Kathy Hammond

We went to some utterly stunning places, purely magical. The tour leaders couldn't have been better- humorous, brimming with knowledge and stories, fantastic chefs...I could go on (more)Christina Stephenson
Cape Town is truly a wonder of the world and the beaches on the Wild Coast were spectacular...This was one of the best trips I have ever been on. (more)Patricia Ruble
Wildlife conservation in Borneo
From
£1,197
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a large wild male Orangutan eating figs in a tree by the Kinabatangan River - we were so close to him and he looked so relaxed! What a beautiful special creature. Tips? Get fit before going! The machete for me was hard to master and the heat and humidity make physical work more demanding. Thinking about future generations of orangutans swinging and feeding from the trees that we would be planting was my inspiration to carry on when I felt that I was beyond... (more)Sue Jarrett
Kayaking vacation in Indonesia
From
US $2,150
excluding flights
Absolutely fabulous (more)Hazel Perrett
The vacation consisted of two parts, the first was sea kayaking around Komodo National park and the second part was trekking in the northern jungle of Sumatra. The main highlights included seeing Komodo Dragons, orangutans, elephant trekking, the scenery the people I meet and the landscapes. All made the vacation excellent. (more)Steve Bosworth
Far too many to mention, but I'll have a go: sleeping on deserted beaches, a school of dolphins passing just in front of our kayak, seeing a shark while snorkelling, the sound of two very large komodo dragons running through the undergrowth in our direction, great food and an outstanding local guide. (more)Liz Kalton
Siberian Tiger & Amur Leopard tours in Russia
From

excluding flights
Memorable parts? The dramatic and different landscape, environment food hospitality of the Russian far east... Tips? Prepare well for the cold,minus 30 having said that they provide extra clothing appropriate.. Be fit, one in our party of 4 was not, caused unfortunate compromise... Local benefits? All of the above!! Overall rating? Wonderful!! (more)Brett Murray
Uganda wildlife vacation
From
£1,980
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I was able to get up close and personal with the Mountain Gorillas. A very special memory... Tips? Understand the level of physical activity and potential minor discomfort you will encounter so that you can be prepared. Little things like bringing appropriate footwear, gloves, camera equipment that can bear rough treatment, all of this is good to know before you start the tour. Local benefits? Yes, I stayed in environmentally-friendly/ minimum footprint accommodation,... (more)Andrew Parker
Birdwatching vacation in France
From
€977
excluding flights
Both my husband and myself loved our week. Lazing by and in the pool late afternoon was lovely and the weather was hot. Being able to walk littlle or miles or not at all, was good -there is no compulsion to be super active, though you can! If you want to be totally catered for and live in verdant peace for a week, but have company too-this is the place for you! (more)Clare McKee
Excellent. It was not a thrills and spills vacation, just a quiet retreat where you are looked after. And if that is what you need, this is a place for you. (more)Tina cook
South Africa walking vacation
From
US $1,925
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Has to be Kruger National Park game drives but every day offered something exciting. Tips? Be aware that if you are British you may be the only English first language speaker as this company don't seem to sell many vacations to the UK - don't know why as they are great. Local benefits? Yes but it wasn't a main theme Overall rating? Excellent value, great fun,exciting (more)Hilary Cooper

Wonderful from start to finish. I didn't want it to end. (more)Caitlin Phillips
Awesome! I would wholeheartedly recommend the wild camping aspect of this trip as an amazing extra dimension to the experience over a lodge or fenced campsite. (more)Pamela Young
Going to sleep in my tent, in the heart of the bush knowing that I was surrounded by all the wild life that I had come to see was my most memorable moment... You just can't get this fantastic feeling in a lodge or hotel. A wonderful experience. Well managed and more fun than I would ever have imagined. (more)Stephen McNally
North Devon ecolodge, England
From
£501
per week (sleeps 8)
