    A magical experience that showcases a fantastic country, its people and its animalsWhat was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The people in the group and sitting around the campfire chatting every nightSeeing a leopard and its cub from a few metres away and the evening dinner Zambezi cruise.Camping wildWhat did you think of your group leader?Sam was great and everything you want in a leader - relaxed and unflappable which created a great atmosphere and yet kept everything running smoothlyOur local guide Joseph was amazing at finding and getting us close to the animalsDo you have any advice for potential travellers?I went in late Sep / early Oct and it was really hot.  The best thing I took with me was a silk sleeping bag liner as often this was all you needed.You may find it strange on the first few days that there is a lot of relaxation time in the afternoons (due to the heat) - such as midday to 5pm which we found a struggle on the first few days but it soon makes you relax and switch off and becomes part of your normal dayIs there anything else you would like to add?To be quite honest I think it is one of the best holidays I have had.  You completely switch off from life back home

    Brilliant trip in a beautiful part of the world. Top marks for the catering and staff at Hotel Adler too, very well looked after.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Views from the Durrakopf are well worth the effortWhat did you think of your group leader?Karl is a real gem- constantly cracking jokes, the trip wouldn't be the same without himDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Do not, on any account, pass up on the opportunity for some kaiserschmarrn.Tyrolean night at the hotel is a lot better than you might expect!Is there anything else you would like to add?I've heard a rumour that Exodus are considering doing away with the minibus and providing taxis instead. Please don't. The cameraderie of travelling together in the bus is all part of the fun; and it wouldn't be much fun to stand around in the cold waiting for taxis after a long day's trekking.

    This was a new experience for me - I had some time off in January and decided to give it a go.  Snowshoeing is not technically difficult and the snowshoes are not that heavy to wear, but the trip is quite a demanding Grade B.  On a sunny day (at least) the views and sense of achievement are worth it.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Standing on top of Durakopf was both the literal and methaphorical high point of the holiday.  A stunning view across the alps and Dolomites.  However, the sneaking view that it would be nice to come back in spring and see it all in technicolour (rather than 360 degrees of white) did enter my head...What did you think of your group leader?Sara was an exceptional leader, first rate in every way.  She look excellent care of the group and knew when to push us and when to let us take a breath.  In addition, highly knowledgeable and fun to be with.  She also supplied us with sweets as regular intervals.  What more could you ask for?Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Consider bringing a small kettle to make a flask with a hot drink for the day.  The hotel will do it, but they charge (quite reasonably).  Also take care about ordering tap water in the hotel, again they charge (not so reasonably).Regulating your temperature on the walks is important - on ascents you will quickly get very hot, and then get very cold when you stop.  A number of breathable layers is the best idea.  I found my ski jacket quite hot from time to time.  Whatever you do, take good gloves (ski gloves or similar) and a hat and scarf.

    An excellent holiday and good value. Great to have a swim / sauna after a day snowshoeing. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The 2 days Snowshoeing on Monte Piano and Lutterkopf/ Durrakopf - magnificent views and a variety of scenery to walk through.What did you think of your group leader?Outstanding. Sara really got to know and understand her clientsDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Useful to be able to speak a little German if they were travelling separately from the group and had to make their own way from Innsbruck. Even though Villabassa is in Italy, the food is heavily Germanic.Is there anything else you would like to add?Some fastenings /clips of some snowshoes were broken or broke while members of the group were out. Some poles were bent. The snowshoes I had used in France were a much better quality with clip fastenings at the toes and stronger plastic. I suggest the snowshoes used by Exodus could have been better maintained. Also the vehicle which broke down in the low temperatures. Due to new regulations Sara took the group out on only 4 days. Is it not possible to have a different driver for some of the time? Please note these comments do not detract from a superb holiday.
