After a brief stay in the fascinating city of Quito, we visited the Amazon rainforest. We then spent a week cruising the Galapagos Islands and rounded off our trip with a few days birdwatching in the cloud forest.

We chose Tribes Travel because they specialise in Eco-tourism and support sustainable projects. They were very efficient and helpful, right from our initial inquiry, tailoring our holiday to fit in everything we wanted to do. We haven't taken this kind of organised tour before and we were very pleased.

We started in Cape Town and stopped at 5 wonderful different locations all arranged by Tribes. Accommodation and flights were arranged by tribes and couldn't be faulted.

Tribes went over and above. There were very accommodating to our needs and changed various bits that we wanted changed. We traveled with young kids and they understood all our concerns.

Costa Rican wildlife tour

Rating for this holiday Excellent

A multi-centre holida, with 2 or 3 nights at each destination. Mostly private transfers.

Rating for tour operator Excellent

Mostly private transfers, all of which worked perfectly. The accommodations chosen for us by Tribes Travel were perfect. Tribes Travel had clearly listened to our expectations when putting together the itinerary for us, and they certainly delivered against those expectations. A great trip.

Amazing Madagascar

By Jan on 24 Nov 2016

Rating for this holiday Excellent

Tribes helped us to put together a trip that took in fewer places than most Madagascar trips staying in each for a bit longer than usual so that we could really maximise the wildlife (birds, lemurs, fosa, etc in those areas. We also cut down road travel by incorporating a couple of private charter flights.
The wildlife was amazing and we had many special moments. We watched the fosa mating up a tree -an annual event at the beginning of November. We had an eye to eye encounter with an Indri and its baby after a long climb in one of the parks. Overall we saw 116 species of birds (many of whiah were endemic), 21 types of lemur, as well as other mammals, chameleons and reptiles.

An amazing adventure

Mainland Ecuador was incredible with its volcanoes, its history and the equator to boot. However, the Galapagos Islands were amazing! The volcanic landscape, the hikes on different islands, the blue and red footed boobies, the iguanas that literally cover the ground in places, giant tortoises, sea life, sea lions at home everywhere, including landing steps and park benches! Sailing through sparkling ocean waves accompanied by dolphins and turtles. with frigate birds soaring overhead and pelicans and cormorants diving like missiles. Absolute bliss! A great holiday, too, for solos as all guests on Tip TopII mixed and talked, at mealtimes, on landings, in fact most of the time.

Everything about my dealings with Tribes was excellent and so different from other larger companies with whom I have travelled in the past. The consultant was so approachable and knowledgeable about the destination. Pre holiday information was very detailed and helpful and any queries were answered promptly either by email or by phone. The holiday really did match the description given and when I had the misfortune to suffer a fall, everyone on hand did all they could to minimise the disruption to my holiday and Tribes staff made arrangements to ease my journey home. I can highly recommend this company.

Truly the holiday of a lifetime.

We spent time looking for (and finding) jaguars in the Pantanal region of Brazil and then followed this up by travelling to Rio and attending the Paralympics. A superlative experience.

We have used Tribes to book our holidays before. Their consultants are very knowledgeable, usually having visited the areas and accommodation personally. They are extremely helpful in assisting us to refine our plans until we have exactly the holiday that we want.
