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

The walks and informative guides.

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

Be prepared for basic level accommodation, lengthy delays at restaurants and variable road conditions.

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

Not really even though I was of the impression that was the intention of Responsible Travel to do so/

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

The Guide Gabre was very good and the schedule followed was as intended with mostly full days and a variety of experiences provided.

Read the operator's response here:

We would like to thank you for your feedback, although we are sorry that you were left feeling unsure about whether your trip was run in a manner that benefited the local communities and environment. On this trip, for example, we stay in family-run hotels, contributing to communities that otherwise would not be visited by tourism. There are a number of activities where the local people rely heavily on tourism for income, and when we pay park fees it contributes to the funding of conservation initiatives and community projects.
