Namibia Highlights Tour
By: Keith Muir, Glasgow, UK
We were very fortunate to have a wonderful guide and equally wonderful co-travellers. Namibia is stunning but it is a very big country and involves a lot of travelling by road.
Many of the lodgings were in isolated wilderness spots which were beautiful
Best of Botswana - Okavango, Chobe & Vic Falls
By: Louise Osborne, Bristol, UK
This was the trip of a lifetime for us and it really fulfilled our dreams.
The wildlife viewing was fantastic and the guides extremely knowledgeable. Specialist guides with local and wildlife knowledge joined us at certain points in the trip. The proximity to the wildlife and the sheer numbers were amazing, while the animals remained relaxed by our presence. We were usually the only truck or landrover in the vicinity watching the wildlife - a real privilege.
Ethiopia - Addis to Axum Explorer
By: Liz Gambier, Ruislip, UK
Exceeded my expectations. Interesting historical sites, walking in Simien Mountains and climb up to see rock churches in Tigray - and Lalibela.It was an excellent group who looked out for each other. The altitude was not an issue, although I puffed more!! A very interesting trip which did not disappoint.
Polar Cruise - Antarctica Classic
By: William Cross, North Shields, Tyne & Wear
Julio and his team (trip leaders) were exemplary - keen, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and driven to pass on their knowledge and love of Antarctica and its animal life to us. Antarctica is absolutely stunning - probably the most remarkable place on the planet! It felt like a privilege to see it. If you get the chance - GO!
Polar Cruise - The Realm of the Polar Bear
By: John Dawson, Derbyshire, UK
Walruses. Zodiac excursions on calm fjords under the snouts of glaciers. Being given free access to the bridge of the ship. The day in Longyearbyen was most interesting. The scenery was awesome. The knowledgeable members of the team on the ship. All sorts of subjects were covered. having the use of a small gym on the ship to try and run some of the food off.
While my wife's daughter fell about laughing at the thought of her getting into a Zodiac we experienced no trouble at all as reasonably fit 71 and 69 year olds.
Buena Vista Cuba - Adventure Holiday in Cuba
By: Sue Ledbrooke, Devon
We were in Cuba. Sometimes we had hot water, sometimes we didn't. Never less than comfortable and was part of the experience. The local guides in Vinales (Alexis) and El Cubano (Rambo) were both excellent. Could happily have spent more time walking with them.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and, in many ways, Cuba exceeded our expectations. Really pleased that we went.
Sri Lanka Explorer
By: Erica Hutchby, Heathfield, UK
I really enjoyed this trip and would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Sri Lanka. The birdlife was certainly the highlight for me. There was a good balance of culture and wildlife. The pace of the days was about right too.
Our guide, Nuyam, was extremely helpful and accommodating to our interests. His cultural knowledge was excellent. He was also very keen to show us all the wildlife habitats and without him we would not have seen so many birds. Nuyam was also an excellent and careful driver and must have been very tired at the end of each long trip but never complained.
KE office staff were always helpful and if there was a query that they did not immediately know the answer too were able to find out and get back to me.
The Ultimate Bhutan Tour
By: Peter Mountford, West Midlands, UK
Our guide Yeshi was superb, He had a very good historical knowledge, spoke vet good English and had a great sense of humour, I am writing to his office manager in Thimpu to this effect.
The country. It is beautiful and the scenery spectacular. The people are lovely and tourism hasn't yet spoilt the country as has been the case in many other destinations. The efficient service provided by KE and it's staff.
Your company was recommended to us by a friend. As a result of our wonderful experience I can now unreservedly recommend KE to any of our friends considering an adventure holiday. Nothing went wrong it was a super experience, Thank you.
Alpine Peaks of Greenland
By: Ann Shawley, S. Yorkshire, UK
Like to come in to office to discuss present and future holidays. I always receive a lovely welcome.
Wow what a fantastic trip. just didn't know what to expect as I had booked for Tibet but the trip didn't run, It was a spur of the moment decision but one I never regretted.
It was one of the must amazing things I have ever done. the boat was small but clean the staff were excellent, Phil the trip leader and Cecilla his co leader were everything you would want from leaders. Phil has run expeditions to all Polar regions and high mountains for years his knowledge was extensive.
The only thing I would say is don't take a hard case as there is no where to store it and it will take up a good portion of the cabin. I took my KE bag and just man aged to squeeze it into a small shelf. My room mate took a small hard case on wheels and it was a pain so I can't imagine what 2 would have caused.
One of the best holidays I've ever had. I'm hooked on Polar travel.
Kasbahs and Camels - A Moroccan Discovery
By: Claire Fidler, Swindon, UK
We really enjoyed the picnics by the river. Staying in Kasbahs was really interesting - each added to our understanding of the trade routes. They were also very luxurious for us! The riad in Marrakech was very attractive and welcoming. Our driver, (sounds like Rabbert) was excellent - very calm and safe driver, and a cheerful companion.
The caves were really interesting and I even enjoyed the camel ride! I loved the Bougmez Valley. Hamid took us to meet his family which was a great pleasure.
We picked KE because we had enjoyed the trip to Concordia in Pakistan very much. We liked the KE approach - to get off the beaten track and also to treat local guides well.
