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

Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds

For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe

But I guess the most memorable thing was the safari we went on. We were taken by Francois, who is the husband of the woman who runs the education project, and he was the most wonderful guide you could imagine. Too many highlights to list - it was pretty much perfect. As a fabulous, trip - I think the most memorable vacation I have ever been on. (more)Jane Howes
The experience we had (both my son and I) was unforgettable. Seeing the good the school does for the community was heart warming. The Kruger National Park trip was amazing. We saw 63 species of animals and birds in two days thanks to the wonderful Francois's eagle eye! (more)Sue Blair

Seeing an Eagle ray swim right over us on a night dive, illuminated by our torchlight was the highlight. Staying on the island in the reef is wonderful and makes for very easy access to the dives. Excellent, a really enjoyable vacation with an environmental twist. (more)Tony Elliott
