From

11 out of 10. The holiday provider went above and beyond and made our holiday perfect. Our guide was fantastic, all of the lodges were unbelievable, and the itinerary was perfect. (more)Kirsten Glaser
It's actually pretty hard to describe this trip in a few words - it was truly magical and inspirational! (more)Nina Szewczak
Way better than I ever could have imagined. I will be going again! (more)Carole Artis

From
£2,799

Great if you are interested in culture, history and religion (more)Hannah Murray
Although the Churches, Museums and Palaces were stunning and memorable the aspect that made the most impact was meeting people in different parts of Ethiopia and gaining some understanding of how they live. (more)Lauren Kaswell
Go with an open mind and you will have many wonderful surprises (more)Margarita Lytle

A truly fabulous holiday (more)Fiona Watson
Fantastic. Ethiopia is beautiful, ancient and dramatic. A sight to see around every corner. The holiday provider crafted our itinerary, provided some superb guides and ensured we experienced the country as more of a traveller than a tourist. (more)Alison Newman
Extremely good. Well thought out and very good value for money. (more)Sally-Ann Shouler
Cultural history holiday in Ghana
From
£750
excluding flights
Visiting compounds and seeing the real Ghana. Great to meet the locals and see how they lived. Also: river safari with the hippos; tree top rainforest walk; learning about the slave trade .... and much more. (more)Nicholas Wilson
The best part of the holiday was visiting Wechiau, a rural village in northern part of Ghana; our driver cooked a meal for us on open fire, the whole Lobi tribal community got together and danced for us. (more)Amy Sakai
What part of my holiday wasn't memorable or exciting?? If I had to pick something, I would have to say hanging out with the Lobi villagers around Wechiau. They were all so kind and generous and had great senses of humour. I also loved the Kakum canopy walk, despite a mild fear of heights. (more)Amy Lippincott

From
£1,720
excluding flights
Great trip! We loved the country and everything it has to offer! We couldn't recommend it more! Eskinder organised the tour perfectly and it all ran very smoothly. (more)Olivia Wilkinson
It was a splendid holiday very well organised by the operator. The company is run by Eskinder Hailu Senebata who is a delightful man, who answered all our questions most professionally and on meeting turned out to be a most interesting man. (more)Colin Luke
Experiencing the people and culture was the most memorable part of my trip. (more)Dean Moore
Tanzania wildlife, people and beach holiday
From
£3,800
excluding flights
A marvellous holiday that exceeded expectations in all areas! Most memorable was the incredible wildlife in both Selous and Ruaha national Parks, plus the coral reefs we saw around Mafia Island - truly spectacular. Lack of other tourists was a major plus. (more)Liz Taylor
Everything was wonderful. The setting perhaps captures most of it - staying in beautiful places in the midst of the national parks and conservation areas, where the animals were everywhere (from in camp to close by during game drives). (more)Laura Dukess
We were lucky enough to see a cheetah hunting a gazelle. Unfortunately the cheetah was unsuccessful but it made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and you really felt the thrill of the chase watching the animals in action. (more)Ilana Howley

From
£1,496

A great holiday ... incredible sights and the chance to see several of the tribal groups in the Omo Valley. (more)Lloyd Martin
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
A highlight was our 4 hour walk on the Sanetti plateau, seeing wolves walk by us not too far away in complete peace. Visiting the Harenna forest, a beautiful largely unexplored rainforest on the southside of Bale Mountains, was also unforgettable. (more)Francoise Wemelsfelder
Zambia safari in South Luangwa
From
£4,350
excluding flights
The most memorable part was when we were driving up a rocky dry river to see white rhinos and when they smelled/heard us and started coming towards us, realized they could be a lot faster than us on this terrain. (more)Sven Jeanrenaud
The most exciting was the gorge swing & white river rafting in Victoria Falls as well as the night game drives following lions stalking prey in the Okavango. (more)Jean Pierre Kruger

Memorable parts? Bull jumping ceremony in Hammar village Tips? Beware of poor accommodation in Yabello and Wando Genet Local benefits? No Overall rating? I enjoyed learning about the customs and village life (more)Joan Thomas
Cultural tour of Mali
From
€1,940
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We named it the “5000 Star Hotel” under the full moon on a windy night as we told stories around a small fire. That was on the very edge of the Bandiagara Cliff in Dogon Country. The rocks and the edge of the cliffs were –right there —and the stories told and laughter were very precious. Our guide Aly and his Dogon friends made a conversation in multiple broken languages fun and enlightening. It truly felt like the mythical Shangra-La. And the rich history of Timbuktu....

£3,325

It was all memorable but - not toooo exciting! (more)June Addison
The most memorable parts were the fantastic views from the escarpments and a chance visit at a local school during the TESFA walk, the view over the twin of Ayers Rock from the Ghiralta lodge (more)Monica Filkova
This was a wonderful way to see the beauty of Ethiopia, its warm friendly people and to experience one of it's best known festivals in an idyllic rural community setting. The guide was outstanding in her knowledge of the country and was proactive...A travelling group holiday cannot get better than this. (more)Anne Cooper
Mali cultural holiday
From

I have been in a few places in Africa, and normally we go local, this time with Aly organising everything for you, I had the most luxurious trip with fabulous hotels and great food all the way... I would highly recommend booking with Aly. (more)Christina Schrotzhammer

Seychelles tours, a Seychellois Creole experience
From
£2,299
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing an eagle ray whilst snorkelling. Seeing wildlife close up on Cousin Island. Tips? Choose an hotel with a good beach, there are plenty of them and make sure you go to La Digue island. Local benefits? I hope so, we used local shops, and hired bycycles and used the local buses. The visit to Cousin hopefuly gave money to support the conservation here. Overall rating? Excellent, sunshine nice people, beautiful and quiet beaches everywhere. (more)David Williams
Kenya & Tanzania safari, culture and wildlife 14 days
From
US $4,045
excluding flights
It was fantastic and we wouldn't have found the outfitters if it weren't for Responsible Travel. (more)Rich Gross
We saw all the animals we could hope for, most of them in great numbers and really close up. Perhaps the very best was when we came upon first a mating lion couple and then, a few km away, the rest of the pride with mums and cubs nursing and playing. Absolutely amazing! (more)Marie Lenstrup
The highlight was staying in a bush camp site, watching three lions less than one kilometre away from the site. (more)Pablo Moreno
Ghana cultural tours
From
£3,185
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part was probably walking around the busy streets of areas like Accra Old Town, Osu and the centres of Cape Coast and Elmina. There is always something to look at amongst the crowds and you feel safe and are not unduly bothered. Particularly enjoyable was a visit to a local high-life band’s concert in Cape Coast. And we were very interested in a couple of meetings we had with academics about Ghanaian culture and history. Tips? We only went for... (more)Chris Pountain
Ghana, Togo and Benin holiday, gold and magic
From
£2,099
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The festival for the local king in Kumasi on day 11 was a highlight. Another highlight was a visit to a village of semi nomadic people on day 9. They had a sort of water festival that day. Around 100 women in color full dresses carried a jar of water on their head, singing, and emptied the water in front of their chief. Visit to the slave forts and to several markets were very interesting. Tips? Do not have high expectations about hotels or restaurants, but... (more)Annie Krefting
Gerewol festival holiday in Chad
From
£1,999
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Interacting with the Mbororo people was a very rewarding experience. They were friendly and very obliging when it comes to taking photos. The work which had been done before the trip started in order for the group to be accepted was obviously of the highest standard. Tips? Arrive a day earlier to acclimatize as it is a very hot destination and it is better to be well rested before the start of the trip. I arrived a day earlier and left Chad later than most of the... (more)Tony Camacho
Burkina Faso holiday, Festival of the Dancing Masks
From
£1,999
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Visting the Lobi villate of Kampti with all its fetishes in full display. Tips? Drink plenty of fluids and bring plenty of money and storage space for all the souvenirs you are likely to buy. The quality and variety are amazing. Local benefits? Staying at local hotels, buying souvenirs and drinks (at inflated prices) definitely helped the local economy and local people. Overall rating? Different and enjoyable. (more)Dominic Turnbull
West African history tour in Ghana
From
£750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I went to Ghana wanting to explore more of its history, and, as a black person to better understand the European slave trade and the place from which so many of our ancestors were shipped away to the Americas and continuing subjugation. The visit to the places in which enslaved people were chained and held was both harrowing and absorbing. Visiting the burial ground of Kwame Nkrumah and seeing the places from which Ghana's independence was launched was moving; learning more... (more)Josephine Kwhali
