We took a Polar Bear tour sponsored by Natural Habitat Adventures, a company in Boulder, from Nov. 15 to Nov. 18. I was afraid, based on my research, it was too late in the season to see bears. But the company assured me they were experts and it was not too late. I was mislead by the marketing people. The best chance to see bears is earlier in the season. We saw no bears, they had gone out on the ice, so the trip was a $13,000 failure. The company offered a big discount on a future trip but nothing else. I sent a letter requesting a partial cash refund. They never responded. My advice is find another company.

I am just returning from the Tundra Lodge adventure (Oct. 21-26, 2018). It was an incredible experience. We saw a lot of polar bears (including a female and two cubs and also several males, sparring, right outside the Tundra Lodge) and two silver foxes. We experienced a beautiful environment and learned a lot about the ecosystem. We had wonderful food and care from the exceptional staff. Our guides, Heather and Rinie, were very knowledgable and
passionate, with great senses of humor. Plus our group members took some great pictures.

Thank you, NatHab!

We went on the Secluded Botswana Safari this last July/August. We were both concerned about the trip meeting our expectations because it was number one on our bucket list. I am thrilled to report that it far exceeded our expectations. The variety and quantity of animals was absolutely amazing. Our expedition leader (i.e. "guide") was knowledgeable beyond words. He knew the answer to all questions, could track so that we experienced every animal that we wanted to see and made us feel extremely safe while still experiencing close interactions. Also traveling with us was a safari coordinator who made sure that all our needs were met at the camps. The travel, transfers, etc. were flawless. The accommodations and food at the camps were terrific. I had never "camped" before so I was a little concerned about the accommodations. If you have any concern, be sure to look at the pictures. The accommodations were lovely and comfortable. My husband and I spent years in the hotel industry so we were especially impressed by the quality of the food in the "middle of nowhere". It is hard to imagine the logistics necessary to create such an amazing experience. Wendy, our Adventure Specialist at Natural Habitat, was extremely responsive and made sure that any and all concerns were addressed. If you are considering an African safari experience, we strongly recommend Natural Habitat Adventures. It was the trip of a lifetime and beyond description. In fact, so much so, we have already booked our next adventure to Uganda and Rwanda for the Ultimate Gorilla Safari.

My husband and I just went on the Ultimate Alaska Grizzly Adventure and it was spectacular. It was our first trip with NatHab. My sister-in-law has been trying to get us to go with them as she and her husband have gone a few times. Then I got another referral from a friend who went to Galapagos. We were going to go on that one but had to change our plans when my husband had knee surgery. NatHab worked with us and allowed us to change to Alaska the following year with no problem. Everything was as smooth as could be. Our expedition leader, Mike Hillman was everything a guide could and should be. His photography experience was so helpful to many of us. He was outstanding! He was always conscious of how everyone was doing and feeling and he wanted to make this the trip of our lifetimes. He sure succeeded. The accommodations were first rate and the excursions were thrilling. I can't put my finger on the highlight of the trip because there were so many. Thank you to everyone at NatHab, especially Mike, who made this trip so enjoyable and unforgettable. You thought of everything. When Mike was thrown a curve ball - after all - it is Alaska and things happen - he always came out shining. Everyone works together. Our tour group got along very nicely. Our bus drivers were not only expert drivers but expert story tellers as well. Kudos to you all!

I’ve had the pleasure of going on two trips with Nat Hab: Polar Bears and Grizzlies in Alaska. Both exceeded my expectations at every single turn. Can’t wait for my next adventure!
