Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

I went on a trek to Killimanjaro and the entire team ensured that I was well taken care off. From the moment I met them till the time I left Moshi, I was always made to feel like a part of their family.

A special thanks to the head of the show Mr. Clinton for making my birthday on Kilimanjaro so special and to Joseph my guide for ensuring I reach the peak safe and sound!

I didn’t know what to expect on a group trip, but this ended up being one of the best vacations we’ve ever been on! Being an intense planner, I had a hard time giving the reins away, but it was the best decision I’ve ever made. Annie truly found the best of the best in Italy! We felt like we were on a luxury, private vacation that was perfectly customized for us! The tours, the food, the accommodations, while booked for the group, truly felt personalized, making the experience absolutely magical and so much fun! Not to mention, it was a huge value! Being in finance, I 'ran the number'. For accommodations, daily transportation, daily meals, and excursions, I thought the cost made sense. What I didn't factor in was the intimate experience. We ate amazing meals in local's private homes! Our tours were limited to our group and we we're shuffled into tour buses but privately chartered luxury vans to travel between destinations. It's hard to vacation without these amenities these days, I hope The Table Less Traveled continues to offer a new tour yearly, or else my vacations will be limited. :)

Wildlife Tours and Travel Guide

Wildlife Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Wildlife viewing around the globe is as diverse as the world itself. Nearly every country boasts some form of wildlife, but some countries are especially notable.

Africa, of course, is safari central -- especially East Africa (KenyaTanzania and Uganda), Central Africa (Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe) and southern Africa (South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Madagascar).

Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa have the most famous game parks -- Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, Kenya’s Masai Mara, and South Africa’s Kruger in particular -- but don’t overlook Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Madagascar’s lemur reserves, or Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

The Americas

In North America, wildlife is especially rich in the far northern reaches. Go to Alaska to see brown bears, bald eagles, whales and orcas; Churchill, Canada, to see polar bears; and to Yellowstone National Park in the states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho to view elk, bison, and grizzly bears.

But the southern U.S. states draw wildlife lovers as well. In Florida’s Everglades, watch for alligators and crocodiles; birding is also excellent in Florida and throughout the Southeast and Southwest, as millions of birds make their seasonal migrations.

South America, Central America and the Caribbean are rich in tropical bird life. The Galapagos Islands, several hundred miles west of the Ecuadorian coast, provide some the of the best and most diverse wildlife viewing experiences in the world: everything from frigate birds to giant tortoises, sea lions to iguanas, little penguins to sea turtles. In the Amazon, animals can be harder to spot in the thick jungles, but going with an experienced guide should yield views of monkeys, tropical birds, pink river dolphins, and even elusive sloths.

Usually approached from the southern tip of South America, Antarctica is best known for its penguins and marine life, including huge elephant seals.

Asia and the Pacific

Australia is home to a number of unique and unusual creatures, from koalas (who like to hide in eucalyptus trees) to kangaroos, wallabies, and platypuses. You can also watch for crocodiles in the Daintree Rainforest of northern Queensland.

Asia may find you off the beaten track watching for yaks in Mongolia, komodo dragons in Indonesia, orangutans in east Malaysia (on the island of Borneo), elephants in Thailand, or Bengal tigers in India.

Wherever you choose to go to view or photograph wildlife, Stride can help you find the  destinations and guides that are right for you.
