Edward Mendall: Panda with bamboo
A Far-East Safari to See Pandas, Explore Remote Nature Reserves & Search for Rare Wildlife
D. Stover "It was a great trip! Nat Hab has never disappointed me! I have loved all of the guides I have had so far. It is a nice mixture of culture, history, people, places, environment, animals, and being active. I always tell people with Nat Hab you experience the place, not just look at it!"
“We had the chance to see and do things that would never be available on our own. It was a trip of a lifetime. And I got to hold hands with a panda... You made my dreams come true.”
"Brad Josephs' experience and knowledge on this trip helped me realize very quickly that I'd made a the right decision to travel to China with Natural Habitat. I can't imagine a better experience for a first time traveler to this exotic and little understood country. I returned home to US with altered perceptions of China as a land of great contrasts. He presented an engaging power point talk to us and explained information about panda habitat, reproduction and conservation. Brad made this trip exceed expectations."
"You continue to distinguish yourselves with your choice of guides and itineraries. Our guides were really wonderful people completely in control of all situations and thoroughly attentive and responsive. The itinerary was excellent. The panda reserve was the highlight and certainly speaks for itself. It was a real treat to visit Jiuzhaigou, where we were virtually the only westerners around."
“Natural Habitat is still my number one choice because of the best programs, the best variety of destinations, the guaranteed departures – and most of all, the best animal encounter adventures! Natural Habitat never fails to deliver an unforgettable experience.”
"The experience with the pandas was unmatched. We felt so lucky to have interacted with the pandas as we did. This trip was the BEST! Can't wait for another Nat Hab adventure."
"I am so glad I went to China with NHA. The guides were outstanding and professional beyond any expectations. Although we go for the wildlife experience, the trip can be made or ruined by the guides. Thank you for hiring and retaining guides who are knowledgeable, caring, considerate and professional. I will not take another trip unless it is with NHA."
“This is the best trip I have ever taken. Many thanks to all the guides. I will recommend it to any who are curious!”
S. Allemann "The nature reserve and the national park were extremely beautiful. The guides were amazing. Accommodation and food was great. But what made this trip special to me was the mix of enjoying the natural wilderness and the cultural encounters. This was one of the best trips I have ever taken!"
"Brad's knowledge and experience with pandas and other bears is exceptional. Especially enjoyed the slide show and hearing about past trips. Just a fabulous journey. Thanks Brad!"
"I enjoyed just being in an area so wild that you feel like anywhere you look you have the possibility of seeing unique wildlife. Walking through the wild panda reserve and seeing takin, golden pheasants and muntjac was really amazing!"
