First class travel agents , have been to 6 continents, booking through them (North America next year). Have a dedicated emergency telephone number, always manned, the staff have first hand knowledge of all the destinations they feature.

Also offer more interesting locations than most, ie Antarctica The North Pole, and many more....

We had a great experience with Steppes Travel. We wanted to climb the Nyragongo volcano in DRC and were also interested in Gorilla trekking. Their Africa team met with us, worked out what we liked, and suggested a very good itinerary. We were apprehensive about the hike up to 12,000 feet but Steppes gave us plenty of preparatory advice and everything went smoothly - it was a once in a lifetime experience. Our accommodation and food in DRC was excellent and all the transfers went smoothly. The gorilla trekking was amazing - only us and one other person and really close!
For the second half of our holiday they suggested Akagera national park in Rwanda. That was so beautiful - again great accommodation and food and we had a very knowledgeable guide who took us everywhere for 3 days. We are in our fifties and normally travel independently but were nervous about DRC. Steppes gave us an amazing trip and we would definitely use them again for adventure travel.

We have travelled a couple of times with Steppes travel and each time we have had a fantastic experience, trips have run extremely smoothly, we traveled to Antarctica a couple of years ago and then late last year to Myanmar (Burma) both trips couldn't have been better organised. The guides who met us and took us on our tours had excellent knowledge of the area, were polite and courteous at all times. My husband and I would definitely use them again.

Stride Review

Founded in 1989, Steppes was established to help adventurous, curious, and active travelers discover remote hidden gems around the world.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Steppes is more than just a travel company - they are like a tight knit community. With their own travel magazine, loyalty programs, personalized touches, and incredible private guided experiences around the world, traveling with them is like traveling with really good friends. They have a strong focus in wildlife viewing and sustainable travel making them a great company for families and those hoping to incorporate more responsible practices into their everyday travel experiences.

Who Travels With Them?

Their tours are best suited to travelers seeking experiences and locations not available just anywhere. Private, customized, and wildlife focused tours are their speciality. They encourage travelers to engage and to be conscientious such as buying local and taking steps to minimize your carbon footprint.

Where Do They Operate?

They have tours around the world. Always focusing on hidden gems and off the beaten track locations and activities.

Why Travel With Them?

Their tagline is “travel with a guide not a guidebook.” And they deliver on this promise by offering consistently unique itineraries with extremely high standards of customer service. They also put some of the responsibility and flexibility back into the travelers hands to help you have the best experience possible.

 Our 25 years of experience and combined expertise will create your holiday, your way.

THE BIRTH OF STEPPES TRAVEL

In the spring of 1989, sitting on a rough bench in the foothills of the Altai mountains in southern Russia, listening to folk songs playing on a guitar, I sat looking at some of the most beautiful mountain scenery I had seen anywhere in the world, hundreds of miles from civilisation. It was at that moment I realised that there were people out there, like me, who would also like to visit these remote areas of the world.

People who had neither the time, nor knowledge, to organise it themselves. People who appreciated their comforts, but who would nevertheless forsake all, to visit some remote hut in the mountains without a decent bathroom because it was worth it, because it was an adventure.

And so Steppes was born.

OUR TEAM

Our specialists have a wealth of travel experience under their belts and revisit their own areas of expertise each year to refresh their minds and discover new opportunities. Many have been with us for more than 14 years and have developed a following of clients who trust their judgement and will travel with no one else. We hope you will join those ranks.

They will tell you about those intimate, friendly hotels, introduce you to charismatic guides and our hidden gems - those extra qualities that make your holiday both unique and special.

REASSURANCE

With 25 years of experience and knowledge we have built up many long-standing relationships with our partners around the world, ensuring they deliver the very best service to you. You will not only be able to contact them throughout your stay abroad but also our office on a dedicated number that is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We go that extra mile to give you added security and peace of mind.

RECOGNITION

Rather than beat our own drum, the fact that 70% of our business is repeat and referral is, for us, the highest endorsement we could have. Plus being 25 years in the business confirms our expertise and professionalism.

Personalised touches as above make your holiday with us distinctive and individual.

WE HOPE WE REFLECT THE WAY YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL

Most importantly we remain a private company, not constrained by what or how we sell. This allows us to deliver a highly personal level of service and an itinerary that understands the way you like to travel. Above all, it gives us superb buying skills and agent loyalty often resulting in room upgrades, but more importantly, highly competitive prices for the type of travel we offer.

Highlights

  • Spend a day in Beijing exploring the hutongs or traditional courtyard residences
  • Explore Yunnan, a region of snow-capped peaks, glaciated gorges and terraced fields
  • See the endangered Yunnan golden monkey
  • Visit some of the region's most important Tibetan monasteries
More

Highlights

  • Expert led by professional wildlife photographer Albie Venter
  • 6 days dedicated to photographing African wild dogs in the heart of the Laikipia Plateau
  • Safaris by vehicle and by foot allowing for exciting encounters with wild dogs
  • March is a key time to see wild dogs as the pups should have left the den
