I did a trip to the Pantanal with WANT a couple of years ago. Photography is my passion, and especially wildlife photography. This was not my first trip to the wilds of South America and so I had a good idea of what to expect, and what you might just hope for. I also know that the guide is critical to both, especially the "hope for" category.
Jessica was our guide and what a blessing. I'm not sure if others on the trip truly understood how much difference she made. She knew the critical factors for seeing animals, but also the tricks to positioning for good photography. She knew when to wait and be patient for something, and when waiting would be a waste of time. The whole trip was well organized to the extent that it seemed seamless and easy, which there is no doubt that it was not, except as a result of the planning.
Here's a final point: in the time we trekked for Jaguars, we saw at least a dozen and had hours of amazing photographic opportunities. At the same time, in the same place, over the same period, a BBC film crew was there looking for Jaguar footage and got none.
5 stars!

I've been on two trips, one to the Galapagos and one to Botswana. Both trips were first rate. Jessica is organised, knowledgeable, looks after everyone, and great fun to boot. The standard of guests is very high. Both trips were full of friendly, enthusiastic, and thoughtful people. What particularly set WANT apart from most other trips I have taken is the extra effort they go to to take you to more unusual and difficult places. Jessica is passionate about wildlife, nature, and travel and when she takes you to a country, you are left feeling you've squeezed out everything it has to offer. I have many more WANT expeditions on my 'to do' list and hope to work through them all in coming years.

I have been fortunate to join them on a Galapagos trip and a Midway Atoll trip. Both were superb in all respects. The Midway Atoll trip is mind-blowing on so many levels.: to witness the awesome gathering and breeding rituals of Laysan albatrosses in such close proximity, must be one of nature's most stunning experiences. The historical background of Midway brings home the huge role that this small atoll has played and continues to do. The remoteness, the logistics, the dedicated people there and the way our time was filled with interesting activities, makes this a enormously enjoyable destination. As always, WANT tackles this trip in a totally professional manner.....a wonderful experience!

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We did a 12 day comprehensive custom tour of Ladakh. We had great time. The trip was well organised and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide was excellent and the driver was good especially in the roads in remote areas. Safe Hands and Rohit were available when we needed them.
