Really excellent in every respect, the trip content, the guides and the company. The scenery was breath taking and the walking great. Don’t be put off by the ‘challenging’ description it was easier than many Peaks or Lakes walks and the paths mainly well-manicured. Some of the slopes are steep tough so you do need to be fit. We did see wild life and our guides went out of their way to try and find it. Which we did but unfortunately the number of animals sighted was limited but there is nothing anyone could do about that if they’re feeling shy.
Topped and tailed by two iconic experiences - gorilla tracking and ballooning over the Masai Mara, this journey through three countries offered it all in abundance - amazing wildlife, stunning scenery and delightful people
One of the best holidays I've ever been on. The crew were very friendly & our tour leader Moses really made our trip such a fantastic trip with his exceptional knowledge and friendly persona - he soon picked up the art of English 'sarcasm' and joined in the groups jokes. The holiday itself was everything I had hoped for and more. I packed so much into it but it was relaxing at the same time, most probably due to the African laid-back way of life. I would definitely go back I loved it that much.
Saw some amazing things along the way but found the trip tiring. Postive side was the trek to the Gorillas was not nearly as challenging as expected. There are porters from local villages and for a mere $10, will carry your pack, drag you up and stop you slipping down! Have one whether you need it or not, it gives them an income which indirectly protects the wildlife and its environment. Think of it as a conservation donation.
This trip is suited for anyone who is interested in wildlife, birds and nature. You will be taken to places off the beaten track, learn about Costa Ricas diverse and fascinating ecosystems and escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life (If you are a city worker like myself)
