The walks through the ancient forests of Japan were above expectation, but the highlight I think was staying in the Ryokan - the charm and character of the inns and our hosts and the total immersion into a traditional Japanese experience with their tatami rooms, onsen baths and local cuisine.

The walks (Amalfi coast and Capri) in a landscape as rocky as green (with flowers).We stayed two nigts in Capri (which is really preferable in comparison with a normal day tour to Capri - it gives you the freedom of some walks outside the mainstreams). (more)Walter Kagi
The gardens and views at Villa Rufolo and Villa Ciambrone in Ravello were breathtaking and beautiful. And our favorite walk was the walk through the Valley of the Mills to Pontone - a lovely combination of walking through the many steps and paths in the town of Amalfi, and a woodland walk by a stream with waterfalls and picturesque ruins of old stone mills.

This was so much more than a vacation and I'd book again within a heartbeat. (more)Sharon Williams
It is really hard to decide of many of the memorable and exciting experiences on this vacation which one stands out the most for me. Everyday it seemed that I saw something different in the bush, unexpectedly two male cheetahs appeared one morning, then there was the cheetah with her cub, there were rhinos and rhino babies, one interesting experience for me personally was a close encounter with an Assasin Bug(reduviidae, heteroptera). (more)Cathy Bisset
The most memorable part was all the time we spent in the bush - at least 10h per day. To see the other side of the safari - i.e. not being in a traditional tourist vehicle. (more)Karin van Volen
