We loved the variety of scenery,birdlife,kindness of the people,food. Fantastic country to visit.
It was great to see so many parts of the country with different landscapes and variety of flora and fauna especially birds
A positive experience and we received all the pre departure details Alex was helpful and knowledgeable
The knowledge was generally excellent especially the bird guides.
Not all the drivers spoke English but they were all friendly and enthusiastic about their country and keen to share information
All our drivers turned up on time and drove well.
Social & Environmental Responsibility:
Beneficial as the locals rely heavily on ecotourism
The places you stayed
It was a shame we didn’t get the full advantage of this lovely hotel on our first night due to timings but we made up for it on our last night.
The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. It’s a lovely hotel, if a little way out of town.
Great fun traveling by boat. Lovely gardens and pool. Good food with friendly staff.
Interesting canal cruise with interesting birds.
We were in the bungalows but the walk to the main complex was via a lit, covered walkway. Take your own drinks as you have a fridge and it’s a long walk to the bar. The pool was the only one we didn’t use, it didn’t look too inviting.
We weren’t too impressed that our bird Walk was going to be with about 10 other people. Luckily a couple let us join their private guide.
We were upgraded to a room in the main building which was slightly noisy from the kitchen on the first night but it’s a fabulous place with great food and friendly staff. Again you get to it by boat.
We saw lots of dolphins and the bird guide was great.
Shame we didn’t do the kayaking but we relaxed by the pool instead.
