We had a wonderful time at Duba Expedition camp. We spent New Year's Eve, and my daughter's birthday there, and everything was organised with tremendous attention to detail, far beyond the call of duty. For instance, Jessica, one of the camp managers and a celebrated pastry chef, had gone to the trouble of making a beautiful cake for Tessa's birthday, and she and Alastair had set up a champagne bar. She will never forget her birthday under the African sky.

Our guide, Kops, was so informative and passionate about the landscape, the wildlife and especially the birds, that every day was an adventure. We saw masses of animals, and big herds of elephant and buffalo, and the ubiquitous lions, so well fed on the many species of antelope that they were gleaming with health and almost comatose with gluttony in the late afternoon. Kops showed us so many things of great interest which we would never have noticed ourselves, and with his own particular grace and humour. He was a shing star.

Speaking of which, I should mention a wonderful 'sundowner' we had. We were driving back from the plains, and around some trees, and were astounded to see a full camp set up in the bush. A campfire with chairs around it, rugs and cushions, and an entire cocktail bar, manned by Anderson, who had made a special creation, "The Ginger Duba", and very delicious it was too. We sat and watched that pink and navy blue sky as the sun went down, and if it weren't for Herman, the chef, who had provided the most delicious canapés, we could have sat there for ever, had he not needed to get back to the camp and provide us with yet another delicious dinner.

Going back to Herman, who was great fun, we had beautiful food, served in a very relaxed atmosphere. We could eat at a big table, with the rest of the guests, on our own as a family, with Alistair and Jessica or the other lovely manager, or with one of the guides. Everything was so relaxed, and whatever anyone wanted at the time was absolutely no problem. Herman is quite some cookie, and provided lunches and dinners that would receive accolades in a top London restaurant. I just don't know how he does it, and I am missing him dreadfully, as my own grudging efforts on my return seem pitifully inadequate.

All in all, it was a marvellous trip. We have been to various African countries before, and on quite a few safaris, but this one was very special. I love the ethos of Botswana, and this was a very important trip for us as we have recently suffered a family tragedy. The kindness and sensitivity, warmth and FUN, of everyone in Duba Camp played a big role in healing our hearts and I will never forget it.

Just returned from a visit to to Duba -- we had a terrific experience! We couldn't have asked for a better setting for our first trip to Botswana -- the camp itself is gorgeously situated, the staff was warm and welcoming, the food was exceptional (thanks, Herman!) and our guide, Kops, was just wonderful (knowledgable, kind, fun). In addition to seeing all kinds of animals at very close range (lions, hippos, buffalo, hyena, baboons, just to name a few), we saw over 100 different kinds of birds, which Kops helped us to identify.

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

        About Lost World Adventures

        Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

        Who Travels With Them?

        They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

        Where Do They Operate?

        They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

        Why Travel With Them?

        For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.
