Client Reviews

We are proud of the extraordinary journeys that we craft for clients and love to hear stories of their remarkable wildlife encounters when they return. This is why we do, what we do.

Jonathan L - Client travelling on specialist photography-led small group expendition

Nothing really prepares you for an expedition of this sort – it was something truly special. The combination of a best-in-class operator in Natural World Safaris, a master of his craft in David Yarrow, and a small group of individuals from different corners of the globe, made for an experience like no other... When I look back at images from this expedition I am repeatedly amazed. Natural World Safaris and David Yarrow knew what kind of expedition they wanted to put together, and I am so grateful that I did not miss the opportunity to be a part of it.

Steve Backshall, TV Presenter and Naturalist and Helen Glover, Olympic Rower

Thanks to everyone at NWS, you created our perfect holiday! Thank you! NWS are simply the best company in this area. Opulence is available should you desire it, but tents, hammocks and hard work are too if that’s your thing. What every day promises is a unique experience. A privileged portrait of the planet at its finest, facilitated by people who know this stuff inside and out.

Had a wonderful time in Rwanda. Everything was so good and comfortable. The accommodations were good, the food was great, the staff was kind and gracious. The gorillas were phenomenal ad will definitely come back again in the rainy season. Jimmy, the guide, was excellent and hospitable. I was glad you arranged such a guide like him. He was also able to arrange two different treks as I wanted to see different areas of the park and I appreciated it.

Gorilla Forest Camp, Uganda

Ronald Z - Client travelling in 2021 to Zambia

Everything was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Ellen put together a unique and varied itinerary for us. It was absolutely perfect and gave us a taste of three distinct views of Zambia. Great trip planning, super responsiveness, and everything was attuned to our preferences.

Nancy G - Client travelling in 2019 to Madagascar

Simply amazed. We had unrealistic expectations for this "adventure" but they were nevertheless exceeded. In almost every instance where it could have gone south...it went NORTH! All in my travel group were impressed by the superior service and experiences that were a direct result of our NWS itinerary. This experience set the bar. We don't know how any other service could exceed it for the things we like to do.

Rachel - Client travelling in 2020 during Covid-19 Pandemic

You all are doing such a great job - I appreciated the proactive communication over the weekend. By contrast, I am working with a different company on a dive trip arranged by friends to the Galapagos. It’s been a nightmare to get information from them, though we certainly can’t go based on the current travel restrictions. Natural World Safaris continues to set the bar on great experiences and great service!


Canoeing in the Pantanal, Brazil

Michelle K - Client travelling in 2019 to Brazil 

Trip was perfectly planned and I loved all components of it. Pick ups from airports and various locations were seamless. Wildlife sightings were more than I could have asked for - jaguar sightings multiple times per day every day. The guides were overall great. The quality and quantity of the wildlife sightings were beyond my expectations. In addition, the trip was complicated (in that I was in various locations) and the transitions between places and plans at each location were planned so well by NWS - I could not have done that easily myself.

Tia M - Client travelling in 2020 during Covid-19 Pandemic

From start to finish, everything was perfect! I loved it and have nothing but amazing things to say about them. I was pretty much on my own the whole way through and saw amazing wildlife, including a black rhino at Sayari and the migration at Namiri Plains. I felt safe throughout and the staff were well-versed in safety protocols and making me feel very comfortable.

Vincent I - Client travelling in 2020 during Covid-19 Pandemic

"Now that my son and I have had time to settle in after returning from our trip, I wanted to take the time to thank you both for making it such an incredible experience for us. While the planning process definitely had its fair share of challenges, they were more than compensated for by everything that happened after landing in Nairobi, just as you said they would. Were it not for your willingness to help me overcome the obstacles I encountered due to COVID-19 I would have almost definitely given up on going altogether, which would have been a huge mistake. I have already talked up the excellent service provided by NWS to many of my friends and members of my family, and you can be sure that I will continue to do so. Thank you again for making our safari unforgettable for all the right reasons."
