Kenya wildlife camping safari
From
£1,785

We were of course expecting to enjoy seeing the wildlife, but our week's holiday provided much more than that. The Porini camps we stayed at were wonderful - eco-friendly, lovely setting on private conservancies, employing people from the local Massai communities. (more)Anna Economides
This was the best vacation I have ever taken! I tell everyone to just go. (more)Amanda Popik
Classic South Africa self drive holiday
From
£2,995
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Our trip took in 5 different areas of South Africa and every single part of it was unforgettable. We spent 3 nights in the northern Drakensburg, 3 nights in The Battlefields and 3 nights on safari in Thanda, KwaZulu Natal. Then went on to 3 nights in Cape Town and 2 nights in Hermanus. Every single aspect of the holiday was memorable: the scenery, people, wildlife, food, wine.....I could go on. Tips? The holiday will be planned entirely around your likes and preferences,...

Amalfi to Sorrento walking holiday in Italy
From
£1,469
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The views and location by far - and with only a few exceptions the friendliness of the people and their willingness to speak English without any hint of frustration by your lack of Italian. The Hotel Capodimonte in Sorrento deserves a special mention for its first class service across the board but particularly for its restaurant. Tips? Do not hesitate if you have the footwear for demanding terrain. The walking guide is detailed and comprehensive - it is wise to... (more)Christine Higgins

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 holiday 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

Bhutan highlights tour, Land of the Thunder Dragon
From
£1,475
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every single day in Bhutan! I couldn't pick one thing as the whole experience was amazing. Tigers Nest was obviously a highlight but there were many other monastery's and treks that we did throughout our trip that were equally impressive. Tips? Remember to take your walking boots! Especially if you are visiting Tigers Nest. It was quite dry and slippery so it helps to have shoes with a good grip when climbing. Take layers as well as it can be quite cool in the morning... (more)Raj Reehal
Borneo 8 day tour, the wild heart of Borneo
From
£748
excluding flights
Memorable parts? As a child I loved animals and dreamed about seeing the orang u tangs in their natural environment. As a 54 year old man I realised that childhood dream the first day of my holiday to Borneo. I stood in the sepilok rainforest park and on the trees top pathway just a few metres away from a wild female orange u tang with her baby. It completely blew me away. I was so lucky and blessed and have been left with memories I will never forget Tips? Do bring a pair of... (more)John Oliver

Dominica nature holiday
From
£2,650
including UK flights
There were many highlights on this trip, but perhaps the most memorable was the hike to Boiling Lake, with our fantastic guide Jeffrey Charles. The hike took us around 7 hours, including a lunch stop at the Boiling Lake itself. Despite nearly 2 weeks there, we feel we have barely scratched the surface of this beautiful island and would dearly like to return. (more)Stan and Jenny Cobon
The most memorable part was mi xing with the local people, both through our 11 days of excursions using wonderful Domincan guides, and simply talking to people and drinking with them in a village bar at Carnival time. (more)Charles Moberly
Try to get to know the people who live near your accommodation. Dominicans are very friendly and love to share their lives with you. (more)Joan Rule

Kerala luxury holiday
From
£2,160
excluding flights
This was definitely a 4-star holiday!...By far the most memorable part for us was the houseboat cruise on the back waters.

Excellent...The backwaters trip and the stay at Serenity were the most memorable parts. (more)john still

Seeing a tiger in the wild was simply amazing, but another heart stopping experience happened a few days later. While having an outdoor supper at the hotel, a tiger nearby started calling. It sounded so close and the area was so dark. Simply amazing to be that close to wild tigers. (more)Lorinda Semeniuk
