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
Antarctica, Falklands & South Georgia small ship cruises
From
6,750
excluding flights
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
Every part of the vacation was memorable including animals, birds, scenery, the ship (Polar Pioneer), fellow travelers and expedition team. (more)Christine Brignoni
Wildlife sailing holiday in Scotland
From
750
excluding flights
Our encounter with a big group of white-beaked dolphins jumping playfully and the beautiful beaches and peaks of the islands. Barra and Canna were amazing and the red sunset in Muck was unforgettable. (more)Maria Frantzi
The whole experience was wonderful, particularly enjoyed the dinghy trip round the Burnt Islands reserve where we were treated with great views of the Common Seal colony. Also enjoyed discovering another world through the microscope investigating plankton samples. (more)Andrew Swales
No light pollution and clear skies allowed for spectacular stargazing. As an added bonus we got to collect and view plankton under the microscope, a truly unique experience. (more)Catherine Egginton
Small group vacations to Madagascar
From
2,595
excluding flights
The most memorable moments were Tsingy, whale wtching, seeing lemurs and chameleons (more)Matthew Edwards
So many highlights. It was wonderful to see such a variety of lemurs, chameleons and other wildlife (including a fossa!)... It may have been the best trip of my life. (more)Lorena Sutherland
An excellent vacation, one of my best for many years.... I shared the vacation with wonderful group of co-travelers, who all gelled and got along from day one. The nature and wildlife of Madagascar were fantastic, discovering new things and creatures on a daily basis. I would totally recommend this trip to any nature lover. (more)David Ward
Endangered wildlife conservation in South Africa
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
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

An amazing trip! The scenery -glaciers, icebergs and sea ice - were stunning, the northern lights fantastic, and the wildlife wonderful. It is impossible to highlight one part, as it was two memorable weeks! (more)Kathryn Huddle
Seeing polar bears, walruses and whales. Especially seeing a rare Bowhead whale whilst moving through the pack ice. (more)Peter Smart
Very good... the most memorable parts is arriving at the pack ice on a beautiful sunny evening and then seeing our first polar bear. (more)david rumsey

Antarctic Peninsula & Weddell Sea cruise
From
6,050
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The close sighting of a pod of Orca attacking a Humpbacked Whale and penguins. Bird watching from the ship. Visiting the mainland at Neko Harbour. The ideal size of the ship and friendliness of the other passengers and crew. Tips? Don't bother taking your own warm boots. Those provided were perfectly adequate with our own waterproof walking shoes for deck walking. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? A wonderful experience (more)Roger Labbatt
South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? 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

The most memorable parts was the good views and the food. (more)Ann Lorraine Wright
Central America tour on a shoestring
From
US $1,853
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Roatan, one of the bay Islands of Honduras, was beautiful and the diving was fantastic, and I'll probably never forget the chicken buses! Tips? If you're used to traveling independently then be prepared to find the lack of freedom quite restricting, however it is great not to have to worry about transport and accommodation! Local benefits? I feel that it benefitted local people as wherever possible we patronised local businesses and shops, and as far as is... (more)Victoria Baynes
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
Skye and the Small Isles sailing vacation
From
750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I was very happy that we found the puffins rock (Dn Mr) on Sanday. With another traveler I surrounded the peninsula with the help of a map with only a few details like some walls, the church and the silhouette of the island - no paths! But the puffins were exactly where they had been indicated on the map, and we had a wonderful, long walk. But I also enjoyed the boat trips - plenty of time to watch the sea, the sky, the birds, the seals, even some dolphins... Tips? Enjoy... (more)Brigitte Horlitz

From
2,250
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

East Africa adventure vacation, safari, gorillas & beach
From
US $3,153
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Gorilla Tracking was just outstanding. Many other highlights of the tour (camping in the Serengeti, visit of local villages, rafting the Nile) were also great. Tips? Prepare for long truck, bus and jeep rides, bring maybe a sleeping pillow or similar. Mattress is not necessary and a sleeping bag just for two nights, so don't bother to waste too much space for this. Hiking boots for the gorillas are a must. Don't miss out on the Pygmy village! Local benefits? Definitely... (more)Alessandra Hool

Memorable parts? Being in a group of mostly 20-somethings was a wee window into their world! Handling the monkeys was pretty extraordinary! Tips? Just be prepared to get dirty and for quite physical work. Local benefits? Yes we were directly looking after animals. Overall rating? It was a very interesting experience and we both learned a lot. But I think my 'roughing it' days are over; I was really glad to get to a nice, clean hotel at the end! (more)Mela Greenslade

Patagonia tour, 24 day itinerary
From
US $2,932

Memorable parts? The scenery, unbelievable and photos don't do it justice. Tips? Pace yourself, there's a lot of trekking and it's a lot steeper than you prepare for. Brilliant, do what you can and enjoy the scenery. Be prepared for the Patagonian wind. There's also a lot of traveling, but the scenery changes so much you won't be bored. Local benefits? Yes. There's always more you can do, but there's a good balance here. Overall rating? Excellent value for money. (more)Fran Adenis

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

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

Architecture and scenery are superb. Visit to Tiger's Nest Monastery was as good as expected, a magical place. Tango Monastery outside Thimpu was lovely too, as you could enjoy the atmosphere without the crowds. (more)Henry Kronsten
The most memorable part was seeing a tiger when on foot in Bardia - only 30m away! There are to many wonderful memories to mention them all. Bhutan was absolutely wonderful. (more)Beatrice Claire Potter
