A Small-Group Exploration of the Planet's Most Unique Biodiversity Hotspot
"How does one select one favorite thing about such a diverse trip. If I have to choose, it would be viewing the wildlife. The local guides seemed to have X-ray vision. We saw much more than I ever expected and much closer, including those mouse lemurs hiding in trees in the pitch dark."
"I have been on many group trips and have rarely encountered a leader who combines such in depth knowledge of his field with such an extraordinary ability to handle people interacting in a group situation. John's expertise added so much to my enjoyment of this trip. Beyond that, his kindness and consideration to everyone on the trip was remarkable. He handled every situation with grace and consummate professionalism. I would go on any trip that has John as a leader!"
“I really appreciate Natural Habitat's commitment to conservation and the environment. Every trip I have taken with Natural Habitat has been great and the guides are wonderful.”
"My expectations for the amount of wildlife viewed and the proximity of wildlife were far exceeded. After having seen only bits and pieces of orangutans in Borneo, I was thrilled to see so many lemurs at close range."
"John was one of the best leaders I have ever had on a trip. Because of his help I can finally use my camera. He was considerate, enthusiastic, helpful and knowledgeable. I can't say enough good things about him. Nat Hab is lucky to have him."
"We saw incredible wildlife. Madagascar is like no place else on Earth. What a privilege it was to go there!"
"Everything, literally, from soup to nuts was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by our beautiful lodgings and delicious meals and, as always, Nat Hab provided fantastic leadership and an exceptional experience!"
"Richard is an exceptional guide and teacher. He makes each traveler feel special. His knowledge of birds, photography, astronomy, geology, mammals, and reptiles is incredible. His ability to spot tiny birds and mouse lemurs at night is unbelievable. His star talk has led me to look at the sky totally differently. Richard taught me more about photography than I have learn in several trips. He is a patient, kind, intelligent guide. I am so thankful that I was able to experience this incredible trip with such an awesome person, guide and teacher."
"Rija was instrumental to the trip. His knowledge and local contacts were invaluable."
“Madagascar is a special place. Our leader did a fabulous job exposing us to all the island’s gems. This trip was a dream come true for me. A place I have thought about since I was but a child.”
