Reviews for Poland wildlife holiday, birds & mammals


review 8 Aug 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Early morning when we saw an Elk very close by. The whole ambience including the mist made the sighting a memorable one.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared to wake up very early in the morning and stay late at night if you want to see certain species such as the bison and the elk. Wild animals are unpredictable and we were lucky to see the elk the first morning we started to look for them whilst it took us 3 days to finally see the bison.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

To enter certain areas of the parks, one has to pay and also have a special guide, so definitely this helps conservation of the area. The fact that groups are small also reduces the impact on the environment and the places where we stayed all serve local products.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

If I had to rate our holiday on the basis of how professional our guide was, I would definitely give full marks. I am quite a keen birdwatching and has been so for more than 40 years and just the same, I learned a lot from our guide Zuzanna, who is only in her 20s but knows a lot about birds and nature in general. Same thing goes for our driver who was always careful when driving and helped in everyway possible. The only problem was that in both places we stayed, there was no air conditioning and one night, we didn't sleep well because of the heat and considering that we had to wake up early and sleep late, we badly needed to sleep well. Because of this I would rate our holiday 4/5
