The Naturetrek Tailormade team has been busy creating incredible bespoke wildlife holidays for our valued clients all over the world this year. Whilst we have many tailormade tours yet to depart (with the autumn and winter being two of our busiest periods), many of our ‘tailormade clients’ have already returned having enjoyed wonderful wildlife, lodges and expert guiding from around the world! Below we have compiled feedback from various tailormade tours that have all run this year. Thank you to our valued clients for letting us share their feedback, which we think speaks for itself!

Still time to book a tailormade tour in 2016!
Our dedicated tailormade team can still arrange itineraries for 2016 and beyond, so if, like our valued past clients, you would like to create lifelong wildlife travel memories, please feel free to contact Robin Smith, Naturetrek’s Tailormade Manager, by email or simply call the Naturetrek office on 01962 733051 asking for Robin. He looks forward to hearing from you!

Client feedback from 2016 tours:

Namibia, Botswana and Zambia tailormade, Robert P and Colin S - The tour was perfect for us. All arrangements went like clockwork and the sights were unforgettable. Many many birds and animals plus some unique scenery. The lodges and food were exceptional. It was a trip of a lifetime for Colin and myself.

India tailormade, Mr and Mrs F - All the accommodation was high quality and really comfortable and service was excellent throughout. The organisation was faultless and the assistance at airports and stations particularly appreciated. All the drivers/assistants were professional, on time, friendly, helpful and easily found which really made everything go smoothly. Guides and assistants were all excellent.

Ecuador tailormade, Mr and Mrs J - The holiday exceeded all our expectations and we can think of little that could have improved upon it. The organisation and linkage between different parts of the itinerary were excellent. We were always met on time and the quality of the guides was outstanding - excellent knowledge and prepared to ‘go the extra mile’.

Kenya tailormade, Mark and Emma S - Emma and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Kenya and I thought I would drop you a quick note to thank you for your excellent organisation and patience in responding to all my questions when arranging the trip. The whole trip was absolutely first class and produced highlights which even us seasoned wildlife watchers will struggle to beat. Seeing 17 individual cheetahs in 5 days was simply amazing!

Greenland tailormade, Colin D - Just a quick note to say thank you very much for organising everything. All the travel plans and hotel stops ran like clockwork. I had a fantastic holiday, and got to see many Musk Oxen as well as a few bonus species too.

South Africa tailormade, Mr and Mrs F - Elsa was simply the best guide one could imagine, with a broad knowledge about almost everything South African. Excellent service throughout!

Colombia tailormade, Mr Paul L and Mrs Dawn B - I can’t wait to go back. 410 birds, 9 Antpittas, Rufous-breasted Ant-thrush, all 10 possible tapaculos seen, including Ocellated. Three different Nightjars on the same day. Too much to mention really!

Ethiopia tailormade, Mr and Mrs G - We thoroughly enjoyed Ethiopia and would recommend a (tailormade) tour of the historical areas as well as the places we visited on the birding tour.  Thanks for organising a memorable trip!

Botswana and Zambia tailormade, Mr and Mrs P - Just a quick note to thank you for the arrangements for our tailormade tour to Botswana. It truly was a fabulous experience. Great countries, great people and wonderful natural history - we are sure that we will want to return. We saw 31 mammals in all. Two sightings of both Leopard and Wild Dog. Leopard in Moremi and Khwai, both Wild Dog sightings in Chobe.

India tailormade, Mrs A - Both hotels were excellent, in particular Satpura. Excellent food. Hotels were clean. Guides were very well informed and great enthusiasts. Transfers ran like clockwork and car journeys were well planned. Both game parks very beautiful and plentiful.  Hugely enjoyable trip with exciting and long lasting memories.
