Memorable parts? The elephant by the side of the road in the wildlife corridor when we stopped to use the 'bush toilet'. The driver had not noticed it behind the solitary tree before we got out of the vehicle. I would also say the group of people I was with: the other tourists, and our driver and cook. Camping in the Khama Rhino Sanctuary and the Okavango Delta were amazing because these were the only times we truly were around nature and wildlife when not on a scheduled tour. Tips? There...

Memorable parts? Swimming with the megafauna (whale sharks and manta) Tips? 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. Local benefits? I think the program does support the local island economy.... (more)Nuraini Arsad

Memorable parts? Seeing such amazing animals (including sharks whilst snorkelling) so close but in the wild still. Tips? Choose a boat that fits your activity levels - I am very active but I appreciate not everyone is! Also beware if you do get seasick - a smaller boat will be a challenge Local benefits? My vacation contributed to the local economy and didn't negatively impact the environment Overall rating? Fabulous fun - the crew, guide and group were also top quality (more)Fiona Muntz

Memorable parts? The wildlife - lemurs, Perinet, Alley of Boababs, Kirindy Forest, Grand Tsingy, Ranomafana National Park, Anja National Park, Isalo National Park Tips? I visited in August and September the end of winter. 1. It is cool at night in Antananarivo at night 14 deg C, so sweater required 2. You need long trousers and walking boots for the Rain Forest and Mountain climbs elsewhere trainers are fine 3. Not many mosquitos, most hotels/camps had mosquito nets 4. Some hotels...

Memorable parts? Elephants crossing the river just ahead of us. Tips? More accurate pre-departure information needed on the correct clothing and footwear for work on the project. We had to buy everything on arrival at the project as the pre-departure information was quite inadequate. Local benefits? YES Overall rating? 10/10. This was a phenomenal experience, not least due to the professionalism, experience and commitment of the APE project staff on the ground. We... (more)Vandna Kalia

Memorable parts? My most memorable activity was actually my first where I returned a greeting to a baboon as indicated by the guides, I later had to endure a grooming from one of the baboons. The most exciting part was heading to the Big Daddy sand dune in Sossusvlei. Kind of what I always imagined an adventure to be. Tips? Two weeks is not enough, to get the most out of your time at this project you'll need to be there at least a month and then there's the other sites to consider.... (more)Stephen King
