The combination of 3 days relaxing on a pinasse going down the Niger towards Timbuktu , followed by 2 days at the Festival of the Desert -which must be the ultimate in music festivals- and a couple of days going back in time in the Dogon country was not only an adventure - but a sheer magical experience.
If a well known Danish brewery did holidays then this would be it! A trip that exceeded all expectations. Excellent guiding, leaders, local staff and drivers that were outstanding. With so many Tiger sightings it's difficult to pick a defining moment! When is the next trip ?
A brilliant holiday, with no pressure to get to great altitude. The group was brilliant and the team, porter, guides, kitchen cooks and group leader were exceptional and couldn't do enough to help even when they had to erect tents and cook in the rain. The views were stunning, even though there was some cloud, and it was so pleasant to be 'off the beaten trek'.
Having enjoyed this same trip in 2008, I had no hesitation in booking again for 2009. What can I say it exceeded all my expectations, both in tiger sightings and in the companionship of a great bunch of fellow travellers.
This holiday was my first with Exodus but definately not my last! I had the most AMAZING holiday and loved every minute!. I am already planning my next holiday and ive only been back home 3 weeks! The group really gelled together and the rep Elif was FANTASTIC!
A magical active pre Christmas weekend of clear skies, white virgin snow, pink day light, screaming on the back of a snow mobile, glacial walking all tied together clutching ice axes, cold fingers, blue noses, meals by candle light and making new friends.
It is really an amazing trip when you want to see and learn about different tribes in the Omo Valley. Sometimes I wished that we would have gone to more remote villages though. Tourism has both its advantages and disadvantages. I am afraid that in the future these tribes, or some of them, will disappear. Go, before it's too late!
My first trip with Exodus and one that will be hard to beat! I had an amazing time - fab setting, great people and a good mix of activities. Plus the weather was a bonus....sunny days (nearly everyday) and snow on New Years Eve. What more can you ask for?!
Brilliant guides, brilliant scenary and brilliant experiences with a group of like minded individuals. I was so immersed in this trip that I consistently struggled to remember what day it was. The guides were friendly and attentive, knowledgeable about the culture and good humoured. While we were trekking they continuously identified native flora and fauna that would have escaped my attention. The team lead was well organised and ensured that we had a fantastic Nepalese experience.
