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.

Victoria Falls to Cape Town Mountain Bike Epic

By: Patrick Smith, London

The evening meals were great. I couldn't believe how tasty they were and always very filling which we needed for all the calories we burned each day. Both Peter and Albert worked extremely hard throughout the trip. It seemed like they were always doing something - preparing meals; providing us information about the countries we were visiting, the animals we'd see along the road & stopping to allow us good views of the animals. I thought that Peter (biking guide) and Albert (team driver) did a great job supporting the trip. Albert was a great part of the crew. He was always positive and had a smile on his face --- he wanted everyone to have a good time. He did a great job driving and was able to spot animals way before anyone else. I also enjoyed that he provided information about the places we were seeing and the animals.

Kilimanjaro Trek and Safari

By: Heather Labden, UK

We found the staff at the KE office very helpful and patient with all our questions and it was really reassuring to know you were talking to someone who had done the trip and therefore have great first-hand knowledge.

Our porters and trip leaders were great; we couldn't have made it up without their support. They even made a big effort to celebrate on Christmas day by providing wine and a cake!

Overall a fantastic trip, made special by the staff that lead the group. And to top it all we got engaged at the summit!!

We particularly enjoyed the group leaders and porters great spirit and enthusiasm, the amazing safari accommodation that was far beyond our expectations and of course reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro.

Sri Lanka - Island Explorer, Family Adventure

By: Alison Liney, Somerset, UK

This was one of the best trips our family has ever done; the itinerary was full and varied with so many different things to see and do. We most enjoyed the beauty and diversity of the country, seeing the animals - leopards, elephants, crocs and being immersed in the country; this was very special.

Asanga was a great trip leader. He was so knowledgeable and thoughtful. He showed us his beautiful country and shared so much with us - he kept us very well informed and I don't think there was a question he didn't know the answer to.

Ecuador and the Galapagos

By: Keith Mitford, North Yorkshire, UK

Enjoyed having Carlos as our trip leader/guide in Ecuador. Very informative and knowledgable. Had every confidence in him trekking at altitude.

Most enjoyed - Good guides, trekking on Cotapaxi.Varied walks and beautiful countryside.Reaching 5000 metres altitude.Visiting the Galapagos Islands, a dream come true.

Polar Cruise - Antarctica Classic

By: Michael Burn, Watford, UK

I would have been very dissapointed if I had NOT done the Kayaking. I had 4 x 1.5hrs plus 1 x 3hrs = 9hrs on the water. The food on board was excellent. One nights camping - first class sleeping bags and tents. Kayak equipment also first class. We had some of the best weather seen in Antarctica over a 5 day period. All the leaders / lectures were excellent. I had a great time and would gladly recommend it to anyone. I most enjoyed the wilderness experience along with the stunning wildlife. Thanks for a wonderful holiday. Once I've sorted through 2,419 photos I'll send you some.

Zulu Warriors - South Africa Family Safari Holiday

By: Tim & Cathy Hooper, Keswick, UK

I had not expected that our guide would be so knowledgeable and personable. This created an exciting atmosphere in which we all shared. He was a hit with our family and we have invited him to stay with us. He is a great ambassador for your trips.

Most enjoyed - The game drives in the Kruger, enjoyed the variety. The Drakensburg

Costa Rica - Walks and Wildlife Adventure Holiday

By: Nan Pratt, Swindon, UK

I am thrilled with this holiday. It gave an excellent and varied introduction to Costa Rica. Wonderful!

The aspects I most enjoyed were: variety of locations from tropical rainforest to 'alpine' conditions, quality of our leader, different types of accommodation, including log cabins - particularly close to the forests / Pacific / the wild, meeting Ticos, especially those who are endeavouring to improve their lot with ecotourism off the beaten track, swimming in plunge pools, hot springs, the Pacific ocean (and hotel pools), walking through a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes, observing birds, mammals, sea-life, Gallo pinto! small group, sunsets.

Walter (our leader) was enthusiastic to show us as much as possible. His knowledge of wildlife and love of his country are exemplary. He appreciated our different needs and interests and tried effectively to engage us all.

There was even more diverse habitats than I expected. The level of walking was never too difficult - I feared it may have been. This was a superb experience. I loved every moment, even when I was physically stretched.

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.
