The Dhar & Narayan Families New Delhi & Dubai - South Africa
"Wildspace's ground handlers were wonderfully kind and helpful, all the guides and drivers were terrific and most of all , the places we stayed at and the things we saw made it a trip of a lifetime. Your personal involvement in working on the itinerary and making sure everything was just right was highly appreciated by all. As a matter of fact the phrase " Wildspace has done a great job", was heard quite often on the trip.

Kathy Berman & Nick Napier, Visited Rajasthan - From South Africa
"Probably the most meticulously managed itinerary we have ever had constructed for us. Iain's endless patience and attention to detail ensured that our first trip to India was one of the most magical ever, with precious serendipities daily in every encounter. We just wish Wildspace operated in every country across the globe!"

The Cattaneo Family, Visited Goa and Rajasthan - From United Kingdom
"We have done a fair amount of travelling as a family, but this trip to India, which included Goa and Rajasthan, will stay forever in our minds as one of the most memorable (especially the camel and elephant rides for the kids!). For this, we have to thank Iain and Wildspace Expeditions for organising a super tour, including a great choice of hotels and a most friendly driver! We hope to come back to India very soon".

The Narang Family, Visited South Arica - From India
“Wildspace sent us on our first journey to an absolutely amazing country that had the best of natural beauty and wildlife of Africa as well as the luxury of the modern world. South Africa is truly a ”world in one country” and is a once-in-a-lifetime experience recommended for all travel lovers.“

Sandra de Jager, Went on a Nanda Devi Trek - From South Africa
"In part, it should be easy to write this letter to say 'thank you' for everything you did for us, but somehow I feel that these words are not enough to describe my gratitude. The one thing I would always remember is your patience with us, mainly in answering all our e-mail questions. I would like to thank you for helping us to make yet another dream come true…"

"We wanted to thank you very much indeed for organising our wonderful honeymoon which we thoroughly enjoyed. In particular your advice was invaluable and phoning us on arrival was another example of your excellent customer service. We were more than satisfied with all aspects of the trip and have 380 photographs to prove it. To summarize we had a great time and could not recommend you more highly. Thank you very much indeed and we look forward to our next holiday organised by you."

Priyanka Bose and Paresh Kamath, Visited South Africa - From South Africa
"The year 2008 was wonderful and the most adventurous year of my life. Along with everything else that happened this year, I also managed to squeeze in an amazing honeymoon, with the help of Wildspace. Since I was 5 months pregnant at the time, we needed to visit a place which would be safe yet adventurous, peaceful and romantic and South Africa fulfilled all of those desires. Everywhere we visited, starting from Cape town, driving to Outshoorn, then Plettenburg Bay through Port Elizabeth to Blaauwbosch Game Reserve was just the best thing...... we were in love, trigger happy and really cold :). I cant wait for another trip there for sure....'cause it just gets better."

Suresh Family, Visited South Africa - From India

"What we were looking for was a hassle-free, value for money holiday.  We were more than pleased with what we got.  Meticulous planning, excellent services of guide, all hotel and transport arrangements made the trip a truly memorable and wonderful one.  Each leg of the tour was fantastic; the garden route, the Cape stay and the safari.  All arrangements were excellent and so were the wines.  Except for one day at Cape Town when it rained, the weather was fine all the other days.  The only disappointment was the cable car going to the table top was not functional during that time. Iain's in depth knowledge of South Africa and specialization in handling exclusive small groups made the holidays one we would all cherish for ever."

The Jensen and Alpuche Families, Visited Namibia and Kenya - from U.S.A.
"Our trip was wonderful, quite different, and physically tiring, particularly when you combine safaris, long distance travel and the fact that we aren’t youngsters anymore.  We were very pleased when we arrived at the Hotel Serena for a shower and a relaxing dinner.  We received an upgrade to literally their Presidential Suite, which was larger than Obama got when he was there as a U.S. senator."

The Anderson Family, Visited Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh - From South Africa

"It was a great trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it...Our driver Manoj  was great. We can highly recommend him. When I learned that his own village is only 5km off the road to Jaipur I persuaded him to take us there – this was a small highlight to see village life. He is petrified that I will tell you this – but it really was a fascinating stop and I recommend it to anyone travelling that road with him."

McKerron and Gallo Party, Visited Rajasthan - From South Africa

The trip was a great success and your organization and drivers were superb. The hotels were excellent. Perhaps the hotel in Jodhpur was a little over the top but we enjoyed it. I am glad we didn’t stay at the Rambagh Palace as we liked the Samode Haveli. The Imperial, the Oberoi Udaivilas and Amarvilas were highlights. The Taj Mahal more than lived up to expectations.

Neil & Joyce McRae, Visited North and South Indiza - From United Kingdom

The first thing we want to do is to send you an enormous vote of thanks for planning such an outstanding visit for us and for all the care you took to ensure that we were well looked after.  As you know we were feeling slightly apprehensive at the start of the trip but we needn't have been anxious: you organised us so that there was exactly the right balance between frenetic activity and the opportunities to catch our breath.  The night on the backwaters and the three nights at Philipkutty's Farm were a real tonic at the end of the trip.  The two drivers - Manoj in the north and Gopol in the South - did a really excellent job for us and I would highly recommend them for anybody.

"Just wanted to let u know that we had a fabulous time in South Africa. Your country is beautiful no doubt, but what made the holiday so perfect was your superb organization. The hotels, restaurants and sightseeing were all very well thought out and planned. Even Marius our tour guide and Mario our driver were very helpful and polite. I have to say I have travelled a lot, but this holiday took not only the cake but the entire bakery. Kudos to your good work and looking forward to having u plan a holiday for me again."

David & Jane Beattie, Went on a Kenya Migration Safari - From South Africa
"As keen environmentalists and regular visitors to game parks in Southern Africa and India our eight day trip to Kenya last week, a 70th birthday treat, must rank as the most memorable of all. Apart from the enormous variety and quantity of game and birdlife that we saw, including the famous annual wildebeest and zebra migration and the spectacular flamingoes at Lake Nakuru, the choice of venues arranged for us by Wildspace - Mt. Kenya, Samburu, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara - was a perfect balance. Wildspace's pre-trip arrangements and their attention to detail throughout the trip were without fault. What an experience!"

Jeremy & Maureen Rittener, Visited Rajasthan and Kerala - From United Kingdom
"As we start the second phase of our great holiday, we want you to know how much we enjoyed all of the first bit in Rajasthan, in particular how delighted we were with our excellent driver Pawan, whom we cannot commend too highly. He is not only diligent in all his duties, immaculate in person and with his vehicle, his punctuality, reliability and road safety, but more besides - the kind of guy you would want to have in your lifeboat.....so...thank you for giving us your best driver…We were extremely happy clients and would like to congratulate you and your team."

Andrew Gillespie, Went on an Everest Base Camp Trek - From South Africa

"What made the difference to our experience though was the quality of the people who guided and educated, welcomed and helped us....  We were truly blessed in this regard, and the quality of our experience... was off the charts, a special and unique, privileged time...  The key factor however, that made our adventure truly special, unique and wonder-filled, was our guide, Da Yula Sherpa, and his team. He is a man amongst men, and with his brother and nephew were the best team we could ever have hoped or imagined to have guide and look after us in the Himalayas."

Brendan Peacock, Visited Rajasthan - From South Africa

I'm glad I went - it's a birthday trip that will stand out in my memory for a long time and I'd definitely go back.  I'll also recommend Wildspace without hesitation - thanks again for all the help, and the emergency assistance when I was stranded in Udaipur.  The concertina file handed to me on arrival, including some low-denomination notes for tips, was a nice, thoughtful touch and made the itinerary a breeze.  I was very pleased with the choice of accommodation.   The service, the food and the amenities were uniformly excellent.

John and Carol Groenewald, Visited Varanasi & Rajasthan - From South Africa

Our time in India seems a long way in the past now although I spent a lot of the holiday period working through the 1500 odd images I have. The trip as a whole was great and the itinerary suited us perfectly. [Varanasi was] undoubtedly a highlight and in our opinion a “must.” We loved Jaisalmer. [Udaipur was] a wonderful place and the Jagat Niwas Palace, where we had a room at lake-level, was first class and great value for money.  We cannot sing our driver Vikram’s praises highly enough. Not only was he an excellent, careful driver but he was always courteous and friendly. His English was fairly good and on a few occasions we even went to restaurants he recommended.

Teddy Cole and Heather Wolfs, Visited Vietnam and Cambodia - From Portugal

"I learnt so much, it opened my mind - a truly enriching experience.  I loved the whole trip but was particularly taken with Cambodia and its people. Angkor was mind blowing and our great guide "Lucky" soon realized we were allergic to mobs and took us early - starting where he said most people finish. We walked the first couple of hours with hardly another soul around. The killing fields were heartbreaking and harrowing but I'm glad we went,it opened a whole new awareness and deep compassion in me as I'm sure it does everyone who visits the site.  I would love to return to see more of the country and also travel through Laos..... one day."

"We are back into the ‘swing’ of things and as much as I feel like our holiday is becoming a distant memory, we all agree unanimously that “Delhi may be behind us now” but our Indian experience was UNFORGETTABLE!! We loved every minute of it! It did help that we had an awesome group of girls who got to share the Incredible India together but it is also special thanks to you & your team for putting together a great trip, organising the finer details of our tour of India and then being there when we needed you! Thank you sooo much for making it happen for us!  I shall certainly be giving your details to each & every person we are able to convince to visit India as it should be a destination that everyone puts on their bucket list! It is a truly remarkable place! I will definitely be back to finally experience the Himalayas & the tiger sanctuaries."

Sabina Nanavati & Ashni Parekh, Visited South Africa & Namibia - From India
“The trip was great and I think perfect but I would have done the Namibia bit differently. Reduce the time spent in Little Kulala as there really isn’t much to do there…Main suggestion is that one shouldn’t exceed 2 nights in these places as they are in pretty harsh environments… The South Africa bit was perfect - food was amazing, places we stayed at were great and despite bad weather…we managed to do all what was on our itinerary. Thanks for all your help especially with the drama of the flights!”

"This is the third trip organized for us by Wildspace in the last decade and as usual, it was planned and executed perfectly. The properties where we stayed, our driver and guides who showed us around and the people of Kerala in general were wonderful and altogether ensured that we had an enjoyable vacation. We had one minor hiccup along the way and Iain was there to sort it out in no time. In hindsight, I would have dropped the houseboat and Marari Beach from our itinerary as those were quite unexciting for a young couple. Overall, a great trip. Thank you to Iain and the Wildspace team!"
