Great Fun

We were lucky to have fantastic weather which added to the excellent activities that were planned. Tiring but exhilarating at the same time.

Mrs Dain Pinder

Wow, our expectations were high owing to great reports of Myanmar from friends who had visited recently. However, they fell far short of our experiences during this 14 days. Trekking for 6 days of the 14 meant that we were never 'Templed out' and that then visits to three major, contrasting cities gave us fabulous varying insights to this unspoilt culture. Our guide, Sai, was inspirational, considerate as well as clearly compassionate to the needs of his people.

Southern Tanzania Safari

This trip, whilst enjoyable (the group I traveled with were great), certainly has issues in my opinion. This is why I've only rated it 2 stars, due to the comparison to other safaris I've done over the last few years. The main fault is with the itinerary, which makes the holiday feel far too rushed. Of the 10 day trip, only four full days are spent on safari. All other days are spent driving between each destination. For a trip billed as a safari holiday, I feel this is not the best out there. I did my research and knew long drives were involved, but with so many days spent travelling I feel the itinerary should be tweaked greatly and/or extended. Starting in Selous we stayed by the River and did the first two days of game drives. The billed boat safari was very disappointing and I thought a bit of a joke, being little more than a ferry service with occasional stops to view either buffalo weavers or hippos. I did a boat safari on the Chobe River in Botswana a few years ago and that was far superior. Viewing animals from a boat gives a whole new safari experience and one I was very much looking forward to repeating, but as I stated this one was disappointing. Ruaha was definitely the most difficult place to spot animals (though it did have some very nice scenery), with some heavily wooded areas and sometimes very long grass, covering half of an elephant's height, though this was nice for photography. Unless you have expert trackers as guides I feel you'd be hard pressed to see anything. Of the places visited, Mikumi was by far the best for animal spotting and viewing, with wide open spaces and low grassland areas. Interestingly, this is the one place we spent the least amount of time in. I keep asking myself why this is. The itinerary is definitely flawed! Mikumi also has far fewer trees than the other parks, which also added to the ability to view animals. It should also be noted that if you're expecting large numbers of animals then this trip might not best best suited for you. None of the parks have the large numbers of animals you might expect to see in Northern Tanzania, for example. I feel the trip would benefit greatly by either basing the destinations in Selous and Mikumi or Mikumi and Ruaha, with the former being my preference. More time also needs to be spent at each destination. On a plus note, the food was better than expected and I liked the accommodation in all places.

Beautiful Ethiopia

Those epic views come at a price - lots of steep ascents and descents - but The Simiens are achingly beautiful and worth the effort.

Fantastic Wilderness Week

The Finnish Wilderness holiday is up there with one of my best holidays. Oulanka base-camp was fantastic, the accommodation excellent and the food home made and wonderful. Definitely an experience not to be missed. The optional activities a must. The Arctic gear provided is fabulous. You can really travel very very lightly.

Cyclist and local kids, Sri Lanka

COCONUTS, BANANAS - AND THE BEST BUILDERS' TEA EVER!

As with all Exodus bicycle trips, this one took us down roads that revealed Sri Lanka at local village and countryside level, where the road in front of us was a rich and varied conduit for all human life - from banana and coconut sellers to wayside pop-up cafes that served fresh coconut milk straight from the coconut; from temples rarely visited by anyone to emerald-green vistas and blue distant hills that forever beckoned us onward. This trip connected us directly to the heart of Sri Lanka - a heart that was generous as it was welcoming!

Cross-country skiing in Venabu, Norway

Delicious Norway

A superb location for sampling the delights of winter in Norway. The hotel was authentically Norwegian - lots of wood and candles, excellent smoked/marinaded/baked fish and meat, with a few veggie options, mouth-watering desserts (several of us "bagged" our faves before the earlybirds - aka The Germans - scraped the plates), good skis, help with waxing and great tuition and group leading. The sauna was very welcome after the day's battering - sorry "getting to grips with XC skiing" and the West Wing room was unusually spacious for a ski holiday.
