This vacation was perfect - exactly what was needed! It blows the cobwebs away from normal life, gives you the peace and time to watch the world go by, fantastic food and is the perfect opportunity to see nature at its most incredible. A very positive life experience! (more)Claudia Philps
From meeting the captain and crew, seeing orca, humpback and the northern lights on the first day. We cannot pick out 1 memorable experience, it was all excellent (more)Vicki Binley
A wonderful time. One of our best, most memorable vacations. Not a single negative comment. (more)Daniel Roussel

From
US $3,565

The whole vacation was wonderful especially drive through Namibia with spectacular scenery and its breathtaking landscape. (more)Arvind Sharma
Remember that this is Africa and everything does not work all the time. Be patient and positive and make friends along the way. (more)Louis Carroll
The most memorable part was driving with Makoros (traditional wood boot) to our wild camping in the Okavango Delta observed by hippos. (more)Sigrid Pach
South Africa safari vacation, 14 days
From
2,850
excluding flights
It was all so good it is difficult to single out just a few parts. We travelled with On Track Safari and visited 4 lodges in South Africa. They were all 5 star and the friendliness of hosts and the knowledge of the guides was outstanding... Among the best ever vacation!!! (more)Gilbert Grant
First safari so no expectations but suspect the bar has been set so high that the next trip will have to be lead by Sir David Attenborough himself to surpass it. (more)Alex Lord
Fantastic ! We couldn't have planned anything better ourselves and it was lovely to have everything taken care of by people who really know what they are doing. (more)Sue Roe
7 day big five safari in South Africa
From
1,530
excluding flights
Excellent - a truly amazing vacation for all the family! We met some wonderful, dedicated people, learnt an awful lot, saw some incredible wildlife- large and small - and have returned home with some amazing memories. (more)Rachel Gray
This was one of the best vacations we have experienced. The animal sightings were brilliant, the information we received about the bush was exceptional and above all, the friendliness of all the guides and staff and their desire to consider our every need resulted in a truly memorable vacation. (more)kim plumb
Individual highlights are too many to mention but one consistent one was the look on the girls faces when we found something special on a game drive...Fantastic, well organised and great value for money. (more)Neil Wilson
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
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
Kenya luxury safari and beach holiday, 10 days
From
US $1,730
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Getting up close and personal with the animals both on safari, especially in Ndutu where it is possible to off road, but also in the tented accommodation where we were surrounded by frolicking vervet monkeys, bush babies, mongooses and even a herd of elephants on one particularly memorable morning! Tips? Opt for the tented accommodation options - they were our favourites. Local benefits? We were pleased that the company was Kenyan-owned, and that we were... (more)Natalie Sayers
Uganda wildlife and activity vacation
From
2,400
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
Alaska adventure holiday, salmon run
From
US $3,490
excluding flights
I loved this tour - it was amazing! Being able to travel Alaska in a converted school bus, with amazing guides and a fantastic group of like minded people, made for an incredible trip. We got to see some beautiful places and animals, ate really well and generally just had the best time. (more)Sasha Lim
Since this was my first trip on my own I felt very comfortable with the vacation providers as the owners were the people directly running the trip. They were always available to answer questions both before and during the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for an exciting overland tour of Alaska (and Canada too!). (more)Julie Woods
This is the best vacation my partner and I have ever been lucky enough to have. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it exceeded our dreams. If anyone is thinking of seeing Alaska and considering camping, this would be the tour to choose. (more)John Cracknell
Kilimanjaro Climb, safari & Zanzibar holiday
From
US $4,550
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Too many to mention! Highlights - getting to the top of Kilimanjaro and Serengeti safari! Tips? Do your research. We tweaked our vacation quite a bit and the main aim was to climb Kilimanjaro - had we not researched and as such altered the original itinerary by adding an extra day - we would NOT have made it to the top - which would have soured the rest of the trip which was to go on safari and finish in Zanzibar. Local benefits? Yes - we had sixteen people... (more)Angie Koufou
Denali National Park holiday in Alaska
From
US $1,940
excluding flights
Mclaren Glacier/Columbus Glacier was the best highlight. (more)Julian Mclean
We were instantly drawn to the Alaska Denali Expedition because it encompassed everything we wanted from our time in Alaska and it didn't disappoint! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and it has given us some incredible memories we'll treasure forever. We would 100% recommend this trip. (more)Mark Annal
The best part for me was that we saw that many animals. Animals everywhere on the road, campground and on the day trips. It was really good that Dave always took good pictures which we got at the end. And I also really liked the campfires in the evening where we were talking with each other and ate a lot marshmallows :) (more)Laetitia Spescha
Zimbabwe & Botswana game tracker accommodated safari
From
US $2,550
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole experience on this African adventure was fantastic and exceeded our expectations - from the numerous animals, to the ever changing landscape and cultures of each of the countries visited - each day was a highlight! We loved the walking safaris looking for (and finding) White Rhino's, the open air driving safaris, the wilderness of the Okavango wild camping and mokoro trip with hippos. We really enjoyed the Great Zimbabwe Monuments and the views from World's View... (more)Nettie Powell

From
US $3,990
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The company were very flexible when preparing the trip and send us all the information we needed on a timely manner. All the lodges were very nice and the organization was really good. The best part was definitely our driver guide, Hamisi, who explained us so many things about the wildlife and the culture in Tanzania, responded to all our questions, and was really flexible and kind. We made us feel safe all the time and we really had a great time with him. Tips? Local... (more)Marta Miret
Ten day wildlife safari, South Africa
From
2,195
excluding flights
Two highlights were the sight of a leopard chased up a tree with 4 wild dogs circling underneath it and sitting by a muddy pool for ages watching 'teenage' and baby elephants playing and rolling in the mud! Oh, and the pride of 5 lions and the male elephant walking by right next to the jeep. (more)Penny Bulba
This vacation has been a pleasure from morning til night. We enjoyed every minute, from the people we met, organisers, staff and guests alike, and the experiences we shared, the food, and the accommodation. (more)Pete Bullen
Brilliant from start to finish. (more)Ian Lane
Namibia and Botswana safari holiday
From
US $3,290
excluding flights
We enjoyed the whole experience but particularly enjoyed the Chobe River trip, because we saw such a variety of wildlife at close quarters. The plane trip over the Okavango Delta was also a highlight because it gave a wonderful overview of the area. (more)Richard Humphrys
The Okavango Delta was incredible, but so was Victoria Falls, Etosha game drives, Dune 45 - and of course the quad biking! All of it was terrific! I absolutely loved every minute of it! (more)Patricia (Pat) Ruble
The guides were excellent - organised, knowledgeable and above all fun. We spent three weeks laughing. Their willingness to share their knowledge of Africa and stories told around the campfires made the areas we visited come alive. (more)Kay Emblen-Perry
Small group adventure vacation in Uganda
From
1,500
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
Three Reserve safari in South Africa
From
1,875
excluding flights
There is a watering hole directly in front of the main lodge and most days we sat on our sun loungers and watched impala, zebra and even elephants wander in for a drink which was amazing. In this reserve they use inter-lodge radio communications in the game vehicles to alert everyone to good sightings. This means you will see more of other vehicles and people but it also means you will get to see more and the best possible wildlife sightings. (more)Kerry McCranor
Every game drive was incredible but made all the more so by the knowledge shared by the guide at Rukiya lodge - he taught us things on drives that enhanced every other drive of the vacation. The most magical experience of our lives. Can't recommend it enough. (more)Victoria Thake
Wonderful vacation overall. As a solo female traveler who had never been to Africa I was not sure what to expect, but this trip exceeded my expectations. Very safe and relaxing trip. (more)Eva Kristjansdottir

From
US $2,105

A totally amazing and uplifting experience. A lot of fun, a lot of new things learnt, a new appreciation of another country and it's culture, and new friends made. (more)Cathy McCall
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

Excellent! Every aspect was amazing. My partner and I are both deeply grateful to everyone who works for the operator for making such a special and memorable experience. We will almost certainly be booking up again! (more)Alison Crawford

This vacation was everything we hoped it would be, and much more. We saw everything we wanted to see, but what really made the difference was the wonderful guide and driver. (more)Carolyn Scharf

From

excluding flights
The spectacular mountain scenery was something unexpected and awesome. The people were very friendly. Labilela rock hewn churches and the history was very interesting and fascinating. (more)Nicola de Jager
I am not sure what was the most memorable or exciting part of our vacation - for the three of us it would be different things. I think for my daughter it would be the fact that a leopard visited our camp in the Simien Mountains...I would say it was a truly amazing time. (more)Sophie Brinckman
As an introduction to the African continent, for me it was the best experience imaginable! (more)Julie Stanhope

Birdwatching vacation in France
From
1,047
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

Yes but it wasn't a main theme Overall rating? Excellent value, great fun,exciting (more)Hilary Cooper
South Africa wildlife & culture holiday
From
967
excluding flights
Seeing so many wild animals in their natural habitat was probably the best part of this experience and there were many opportunities to do this. We also enjoyed driving ourselves for most of the time so we could go at our own pace, but it was also excellent to have a driver for our day at Kruger. It would be difficult to know how to improve this vacation. (more)Barb Rooke
South Africa was more than we had hoped. So beautiful. Lovely people. Great food. Easy driving. Although we thought we might have given ourselves too much traveling to do it was fine - and felt very relaxed.. (more)cara foord

Fantastic - a feast of experiences (more)Svend Johannsen
Argentina highlights vacation, 12 days
From
US $2,485
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We did not do a 12 day highlights vacation. Instead we contacted the vacation provider direct and with them planned a 19 day trip. See below for views on this process. As far as memorable experiences, the list is endless. Perito Moreno glacier was amazing to see and hear - it really is blue in parts, and it was well worth paying extra to do the mini-trek. A great experience. So was horse-riding with a gaucho. Hiring a car and doing a 4 night circular tour from Salta was great.... (more)Ro Lynam
