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!
Costa Rica - Walks and Wildlife Adventure Holiday
By: Kathy Dale and Dave Hirst, Aberdeenshire, UK
We've finally done another exciting KE adventure! Just returned from the Costa Rica Walks and Wildlife trip which we would highly recommend. We saw over 150 species of bird, mammal, amphibian, reptile, fish and invertebrate, not to mention the plants! We had an excellent guide and the itinerary was fantastic. The animals are very easy to see and photograph as there are so many national parks and they are not afraid of humans as they have not been disturbed there for decades. My favourite was the Corcovado National Park, followed closely by Los Campesinos. So many great places to explore - will have to plan for next year now!

The hotel accommodation was far better than I could ever expect, some quite stunning. Tents great, nice that they were erected by the crew. Excellent mess tent and facilities. Food magnificent too, great in hotels and wonderful while camping. The crew was great, the driver very calm and safe, crew on trek friendly and helpful and Niri the trip leader was superb, very knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, patient and great English. Also, he is a very nice person. The walking was really good, longish days but plenty of time for wildlife spotting etc. The transfers were absolutely necessary in view of the distances involved between parks, but the vehicle was excellent and the journeys themselves were full of interest in terms of scenery, people and seeing Madagascar. They were in the main completed in the day in question and did not in any way compromise the trip.
Kilimanjaro Trek and Safari
By: Jennifer Calvert, Leeds, UK
A high ration of support crew to staff made a big difference on summit day, when there were plenty of staff to support various members of the group. Very well organized. All of the guides were great, I felt very safe and felt that the guides were very knowledgeable and looked out for people becoming unwell. Overall a fantastic trip. The local crew and guides did an amazing job getting everyone up the mountain. The food was amazing and the accommodation on safari was amazing.

Most enjoyed - Taj Mahal, Ghats, seeing a tiger, local culture.
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.
Kerala and the Cardamom Hills
By: Richard Bickersteth, East Sussex
The trip on the rice boat was so relaxing and the day in the wildlife sanctuary was made by being able to track a herd of wild elephants. The camping was good only marred by the monsoon coming earlier than usual; no ones fault. Our cooks excelled themselves and except for one night at a hotel where it was a set menu the food was superb. The scenery was spectacular and much more tropical than expected. Some of the climbs were hard work but gave a sense of achievement. This is our sixth trip with you need I say more?
Polar Cruise - The Realm of the Polar Bear
By: Sharran Davis, Nottingham, UK
I cannot stress enough how utterly amazing this trip was from the start and booking to the end. It was totally amazing, breathtaking and an experience that only comes along once in a life time. I was in tears on more than one occasion and am honoured to be part of the whole experience from the ship, the wildlife, the weather and the staff. Totally, totally recommended!!! Don't hesitate to book, you're in great hands.
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
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
