A wonderful two weeks in a wonderful country. The 'wild' in the trip title relates not only to the wildlife, which is the main focus of the trip, but also to the locations of the lodges and hotels, chosen to be in spectacular and often remote areas. The accommodation and food was of very high standard indeed, so you can enjoy the wildness in real comfort! The tour was very well planned, with days in the hot and humid lowlands followed by days in cooler cloud forests, and usually staying two or three nights at each place to make the most of the wonderful locations. There was so much variety in such a short time, and the birds, flowers, butterflies, frogs and other wildlife were 'amazing'!
