Big game safari in Tanzania
Superb: it exceeded our expectations. Watching a herd of wildebeest crossing the Mara River. It was a truly astonishing, primal sight. (more)Sheila Brooks
The time spent on Chumbe was so relaxing in on idyllic paradise Island & with it's eco ethics it is a place with a truly great purpose. (more)Becky Jones
Everywhere we looked there were birds: on the water's edge, in the air, perched in trees. Crocodiles slipped into the water and there were pods of hippos, plus giraffes, elephants, buffalo and impala. (more)Joanne Davenport
From £2775 - £2895 excluding flights
Antarctic cruise and hiking in Chile
The entire trip was magical and I loved almost every moment. The landings were supplemented with presentations that helped me to put my experiences into the perspective of wider Antarctica issues. (more)Christine Gordon
Respect where you are and its beauty. (more)Edmund Raczkowski
From £11075 excluding flights
Kenya wildlife camping safari
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
From £1575 excluding flights
Greenland sailing holiday
Memorable parts? The scenery along the coast and fjords of West Greenland was breathtakingly beautiful and constantly changing as we made our slow way north. The weather was bitterly cold but bright and the sun felt warm when we found a sheltered nook on the deck. The beauty of the area was just magical. Tips? Take lots of layers but don't worry too much about buying lots of expensive technical clothing for the trip. Think about what you do have in your wardrobe - an old pair... (more)Christine Symes
From £1590 excluding flights
Arctic sailing voyages, Spitsbergen
Absolutely outstanding, a once in a lifetime experience that surpassed all my expectations...Don't look anywhere else, this is the best way to see the Arctic! (more)Joshua Cox
Watching a mother and cub polar bear for over an hour, watching a male bear stalking reindeer...seeing and hearing a splendid walrus waking up and bellowing atop a small berg echoing around a small remote glacial bay!! (more)Jonathan Turner
Most memorable was watching a polar bear unsuccessfully hunting a seal, and then watching the seal taunt the polar bear by swimming and splashing behind it. Seeing blue whales was pretty amazing too. (more)Justin Watts
From £1590 excluding flights
Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas
From £2260 excluding flights
Nature tour in New Zealand
Memorable parts? The nature trips, guides and information for the whole trip. The open roads with no cars in sight sometimes for many many miles. The scenery and the different variety that can be experienced. The people and their helpfulness always willing to give advice and make sure you have a good as experience as was possible whatever it was you were looking for. The organisation of our entire trip was seamless and all arragements went like clockwork. Tips? Try it, if its scenery... (more)Christine Breden
From £2650 excluding flights
Isle of Mull and west coast of Scotland cruise
Memorable parts? The whole of our holiday was wonderful. The crew were all great, friendly and so helpful. The food was delicious every meal, and plentiful too! The cruise was the best way to see some of Scotland’s beautiful scenery and wildlife. The only fault, we wished it didn't have to end! Tips? Don't forget your binoculars. Sensible shoes and a waterproof for when up on deck and the weather damp. Local benefits? I am not sure about these things as we didn't buy any... (more)julie Clease
From £1866 - £2095 excluding flights
Luxury camping safari in Botswana
Every part of every day was special in some way. Of course seeing really wild animals in the really wilds the best bit. (more)Jill Jesson
The wildlife, the stunning location of our accommodation was truly memorable... A truly unique experience. Great service pre-booking. Great service "on the ground" - including all transfers etc. Thank you! (more)Judith Frehner
From £2985 excluding flights
Madagascar small group tour, the lost Continent
Memorable parts? The Tsingy was brilliant really would have liked to stay there longer which is what could be said of all the places we visited. A really great country to visit. Tips? Be prepared for some long drives and get fit as the walks are terrific but you need to be up to doing them. Local benefits? I'm sure it helps local people and conservation reducing environmental impacts is debatable. Overall rating? Extremely good I could not have done myself, very well... (more)Barry Theobald
From £2499 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro Climb, safari & Zanzibar holiday
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
From US $4550 - US $5850 excluding flights

Borneo orangutan holiday
This was the best holiday I've ever had; it was our first 'wildlife' holiday and whetted our appetite for more. (more)Peter Green
There are too many memorable and exciting parts to mention! Watching young Orangutans playing in the trees in Danhum Valley was incredible, seeing flying squirrels and a Western Tarsier on a night walk was fantastic. An incredible experience, I would recommend this to everyone. (more)Marnie Hadaway
Great holiday, excellent service, good communication & transportation. (more)Ellen Cartwright

Borneo family tour
Go for it. It was a great family adventure that we all loved. (more)Martha Rutherford
Don't be put off by having a guide, we thought we would feel less intrepid but we learnt and laughed so much. Be prepared for the unexpected! Amazing fun. (more)Nikki Shack

Thailand tailor made holiday, elephants, jungle & beach
It was a really great holiday, very well organised, and enjoyed by everyone in the family (more)Neil Emmott

Amazing. We were very fortunate with the wildlife we saw. The itinerary captured everything that we enjoy doing and so for us it was the perfect holiday! (more)Jo Gillett
Fantastic ! Although it did take me 4 days of R&R to recover from the 1st 10 days. Everybody agreed it was unique and a wonderful experience (more)val stapleton
From £3135 including UK flights
Dominica nature holiday
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
The whole two weeks was both memorable and exciting! The sheer beauty of Dominica with it's rainforests, mountains and rivers; the fantastic array of tropical flowers, the wonderful bird-life, and the feeling of being a traveller, not just a tourist. It felt as if we were in Paradise and somewhere completely different. (more)Jean Powell
From £2650 - £2995 including UK flights
Trinidad and Tobago bird watching holidays
It was a birding holiday, so the birds were simply amazing and I took 7500 pics! (more)Lang Stewart
Our expectations for this bird watching holiday were fully realised. The birds were wonderful, the guides excellent. (more)Brian Good
We had a 2 week trip and saw 191 different species of birds. In a trip like this where so much is new and exciting the opportunity to see so many new things became the pleasure of trip. The guides were extraordinary. All of them were skilled, dedicated and knowledgeable, and were able to locate what they were looking for. (more)Beverly Tabor
From £2295 - £2995 including UK flights

From £1815 including UK flights

We had breakfast with kangaroos grazing right in front of the window...It was brilliant, I wish I could do it all again. (more)Diane Bushell
From £5395 including UK flights
Kerala luxury holiday
This was definitely a 4-star holiday!...By far the most memorable part for us was the houseboat cruise on the back waters. Two nights on a barge - we loved the leisurely pace as we moved slowly along the rivers, giving plenty of time for watching birds and also watching life as lived alongside the river. (more)Aldyth Rowe
Excellent...The backwaters trip and the stay at Serenity were the most memorable parts. (more)john still

Absolutely amazing. The most memorable holiday ever. (more)Michael Moulsley

Superb! Nothing like it! (more)Naufier Mohamed

Antarctica, Falklands & South Georgia icebreaker cruises
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 holiday 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

From £4990 - £10350 excluding flights

Everything was done locally, and the guides were great at imparting knowledge about the local area and customs. (more)Bronwyn Russell
From US $849 excluding flights
Tiger watching holiday in India
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
Seeing tigers was heart-stopping! (more)TINA JOHNSON
It was a trip of a lifetime and to experience tigers at such close hand was an experience we will never forget. India is exhausting but the wildlife of the parks was amazing. (more)Julia Gallagher
From £660 - £860 excluding flights
South Africa safari holiday, 14 days
Excellent, without question. The entire holiday exceeded our expectations. We saw much more wildlife than we imagined, and we experienced the bush in a direct, personal way. (more)Bruce Marsland
If you are looking for a first class small group safari experience which has the added benefits of a more hands approach to the wild life and conservation, culture, and people of South Africa and all at a reasonable cost, this is the ideal package. (more)Adele Struyck-Ismay
Five stars! It was, as stated, the adventure of a lifetime, which we were expecting, but we did not plan to gain so much more, in the way of making friends and feeling a part of missions that transcended mere tourism. (more)Tania Modleski
From £2250 - £2850 excluding flights
