Everything about this trip was topnotch: the scenery, the guides, the food and lodging, the pace of the trip and ability to learn about the country. WT knows how to do New Zealand.

Took a trip to Russia with a special side trip to the area where our ancestors lived. It was a fantastic trip. Everything and everyone was just about perfect for the whole trip. I will not hesitate to travel with Wilderness Travel and would recommend them to anyone interested in a trip!

The Indochine Tour not only met our expectations but far exceeded them. Our guide, Matthew, was extremely knowledgeable and you could tell he loved what he was doing, and the local guides shared stories of their respective countries and provided us with experiences only availed to smaller groups (there were 7 of us). This was our second trip with Wilderness Travel and will certainly not be the last. Love Wilderness Travel! And the accommodations were first rate!!

We have traveled with Wilderness Travel two times and they were very memorable experiences. The staff was amazing at handling unusual events, delivering what they promised, accommodated different eating requirements, and showed true concern that we were having a great time. We have already booked another trip with them.

We had an excellent experience as a multi-generational family of 10 traveling in South Africa. Our local guides were excellent, our safari in two bush camps provided great complementary experiences, and all the details worked out as advertised. We could not have asked fo rmore.

In August of 2019, we flew across the ocean to join up with Wilderness Travel for a bucket list trip - a photo safari in Tanzania - something I've wished for since I was a little girl. We have traveled with Wilderness Travel before and found their trips to be safe, fun, and engaging with professional, interesting guides along with comfortable accommodations and delicious food. Our Tanzania trip surpassed our previous experiences and expectations. As passionate wildlife photographers, we need certain elements for outstanding photography such as early morning light and the perfect location from which to photograph the animal. The guides understood our needs as if they had been to photography school themselves, and we brought home prize-worthy images and memories never to be forgotten. We loved it so much we have booked our reservations for 2021 to capture the spring migration in the Southern Serengeti. I couldn't recommend a better travel company.

I want to express my sincere disappointment and displeasure with our Wilderness Travel, trip "Magical Madagascar". Let me start by saying that my wife and I have travel extensively. We have been to Africa, South America, Indonesia, French Polynesia, and many other locations. Never have we encountered anything like Madagascar.
Madagascar is a country completely devoid of infrastructure. The roads we travelled in the north and south were horrifying. We were subjected to gut wrenching, bone jarring, reverberating rides, on roads that had potholes that could swallow entire vehicles.These rides ruined this vacation for not only for me and my wife , but also for everyone in our travel group. (Yes, we discussed this among ourselves, repeatedly) These are not conditions that develop quickly, but occur because of decades of neglect. The omission of such conditions prior to our purchase of your trip is unforgivable.
In the north, the ride to Ankarana took 4.5 hours (2.5 hours in itinerary). The ride to Berenty took 4 hours, and the ride to Andasibe took 5 hours (3 hours in itinerary). Because of the durations of these drives, every activity held on these days had to be modified and shortened. This deprived us of significant wildlife viewing time and opportunity. It also created a group of physically and mentally exhausted travelers who never had a minute to rest or relax upon arrival at any location.
Additionally, the trip was further complicated by the presence of and elderly couple who were not physically capable of participating in this type of travel. The older gentleman was 84, he was never asked by Wilderness Travel to present medical proof of his fitness to participate. He was unable to walk more than a kilometer without being physically exhausted. He fell three times during the trip and had to be evacuated from one of the hikes by vehicle. This created a problem for the trip leader who had to accompany the couple on every activity and occupy one of the groups guides for every hike. This action caused our entire group to be short changed on every wildlife hike. There were no options for longer hikes or photo oriented hikes, and nearly every hike was shorter than advertised.
Another unforeseen problem with the trip had to do with the Madagascar Airary. We arranged for you to exchange $200 each in advance of our arrival. We attempted to spend it at the airport gift shops in Antananarivo, but found that no shop would accept this Malagasy money. We then tried to exchange it back to US currency in both Madagascar and South Africa, and were informed that no one wants or will exchange their currency. We were stuck with $200 dollars worth of Airary. Again, Wilderness Travel gave us no insight or advice that the monetary system in Madagascar would be so unstable.
As you can see from my letter, our trip was anything but "Magical". I hope that moving forward you will stop promoting this adventure to unsuspecting victims. A travel company of your stature should be ashamed of misrepresenting a country that is slipping back into the stone ages as Magical. Shame on you! Shame one me, for being fooled by your lovely brochure.

We had a great time even though the total eclipse was obscured by clouds and the high seas prevented us from landing on Pitcairn island. The speakers, ship and service was very good and we had a wonderful time meeting our fellow travelers.
