Group walking through rugged country, Anti Atlas, Morocco
Review posted by Liz Murray

Undiscovered Atlas

The Anti Atlas Mountains are somewhere to visit if you, like me, have a yearning for real and intoxicating wilderness. The harsh but beautiful terrain in this region, with it's scattered villages clinging like patches of lichen to the unforgiving landscape, brings to mind the Old Testament, and the area is characterised by dramatic valleys, harsh red rock desserts, craggy mountain ridges and distant peaks fading into the desert haze. This is a truly awesome, remote area hike and Exodus and their ground crew in Morocco present it beautifully to their clients. It is a strenuous hike with most days being around 8 hours walking. It's rocky, very rocky indeed, with lots of steep up and downs -walking poles are almost essential. According to our guide it was unseasonably hot for our trek towards the end of October, with most days being over 30 degrees ( one almost 40!) there isn't any shade protection so high factor sunscreen and appropriate light clothing are important. And plenty of water! Our guide was Abdullah, a wonderful, caring gentleman who had grown up in Berber villages. He was very well supported by his crew - cook, camp and mule men. Meals were nothing short of spectacular and each day we'd arrive into to our lunch camp to find an amazing spread of hot and cold dishes, salads and fresh fruit. I was the only one in our group of 16 to fall ill with a stomach bug but I'm absolutely certain it had nothing to do with the quality of the food. ( on that note, make sure you have more than enough tissues, toilet paper etc to get you through a couple of days 'on the run' just in case!!). Camping gear was good quality and I was thrilled to see thick foam mattresses in our tents. Being classed a wild camp, there were no toilet facilities other than our toilet tent - which was the discussion of much humorous laughter almost daily. Water for washing is also scarce (a bowl at the end if each day) so bring plenty of wet wipes.

Family and camel drivers,  Morocco

Meek's Camels Kasbahs trip

The "Camels and Kasbahs" trip was our first adventure travel holiday as a family and our first trip with Exodus. We loved it and were very impressed by the whole experience. We travelled to Morocco in late December, a perfect time to visit. As one of four like-minded families, we spent seven days travelling and exploring rural and urban parts of Morocco. The first five days were spent in the villages, towns and picturesque remote parts of the High Atlas mountains. This contrasted greatly with the hubbub of busy city life in Marrakech for the last two days. The trip is extremely well organised to allow you to take in a mixture of places and experiences from camping out in bedouin tents, bumpy camel rides, iconic tourist sites, busy souks and a really humbling taste of simple village life. Morocco is a beautiful country and the people there are extremely friendly and welcoming.

Superb safari, beyond expectations

Run out of superlatives to describe this trip. A plethora of fantastic sightings, Bush Camp is a wonderful place to stay and Paul's coaching really helped me to get some great shots

Tigers, tigers and more tigers

A brilliant trip. Plenty of opportunity to see and photograph wildlife including tigers. Pench was the best reserve although all were very good.

Once upon a time in Mexico....

Welcoming sun, vibrant colours, mouth-watering food, lush jungles, Mayan ruins and pristine white beaches.  What more do you want as an escape plan from Britain’s dark and gloomy winters? After wandering the beautiful cobbled streets of colonial towns such as Merida and Izamal we would cycle the back roads of the Yucatan, through tiny Mayan villages often stopping off to explore a hidden Franciscan monastery or to swim in the crystal clear waters of a cenote. And of course you couldn’t visit the peninsula without exploring the impressive Mayan ruins that emerge through the jungle canopy. The hotels were also a huge bonus on this trip. Each had its own unique character (one built around a private jungle!) and every one had a private pool. And of course by the time you get to Tulum, you have the biggest pool of them all – the Caribbean Sea.

Cycling and Salsa

Cycling in Cuba is the only way to do it! Beautiful scenery on quiet roads. Combines a Caribbean adventure with sightseeing, history, salsa and beach.

Sri Lanka - Christmas 2014 - wonderful!!

I have done several cycling holidays with Exodus and can thoroughly recommend this one. The landscape is amazing & very varied. Food is wonderful. The locals are incredibly welcoming - smiles and exhortations to "hurry up" from young & old alike. But what really made the holiday was our wonderful patient, knowledgeable guide Dileep. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble - he worked so hard to make this the holiday of a lifetime.

Marrakech and the Sahara

An excellent trip to gain a brief overview of Morocco. You fit a lot in and see a lot in a short time but it doesn't feel overly rushed. No real early starts or late finishes, very relaxed. Had a nice group of people who were pretty easy going. Would recommend this trip. We had never been to Morocco before and this trip made us think of visiting in the future to experience more.

Snowshoeing in the Taurus Mountains
Review posted by Anne-Fleur Van Diem
***** Written

A lovely walk but a holiday that needs some work!

Cappadocia is beautiful! Even though there was no snow there which meant we went walking rather than snowshoeing, the lack of the white stuff did not diminish this magical place. The group were great and the food and lodging in the mountains specifically, hearty and comfortable. There were issues with thia holiday though which i have written exodus about and which have been addressed already which is very commendable and i would say that with the changes proposed and running this trip a bit later in the winter season (jan, feb, march) may help in actually havig snow in both locations which will permit actual moderate snowshoeing instead of quite challenging terrain we encountered

Exodus Response

Following the feedback we have received from this departure we are implementing changes to this trip, including using a different tour leader and taking a less challenging route in the Taurus Mountains.
