Lynne "GREAT trip!!!! I traveled with Thomas to see the polar bears in 2014 and 2015. The first trip was so amazing, I had to go again. I hope to repeat again in a few years.

    I have been fortunate to have Thomas as a leader on 2 tours, one to the polar bears and another in Botswana. He is a knowledgeable kind and thoughtful guide, not only in the country in which we are traveling but also with his photographic knowledge. He goes beyond the regular help of a guide and made both of these trips memorable. Jill

    I have traveled with Thomas twice to Watchee to photograph the polar bear cubs and once to see the white Harp seal babies. I enjoyed all three immensely, Thomas was attentive to every detail and made sure we all got to Churchill, despite any challenge due to weather delays. During the workshops Thomas made sure everyone was set up to get the shots they wanted, and work on the post-processing. And he made sure we had fun even in 40 below temperatures, with no bears and airline delays due to storms. Each workshop is a unique experience, one I will repeat in the near future. Thanks Thomas.

    This is an exciting experience enhanced by the enthusiasm and skill which Thomas devotes to his clients. He is not only knowledgeable but kind and patient when instructing and treats his clients with respect. I would have no reservations about joining him on another trip after Watchee Lodge and Botswana. Lawrie Hirst

    First Thomas Kokta runs a great tour to Canada and is extremely helpful and knowledgeable in the field of wildlife. He is also great with helping people learning the skills of photography. A very complacent individual and just great to be around.

    I have travelled with Thomas/A Life of Travel to Churchill to see the baby polar bears and Botswana, both fantastic trips. I plan to go with him again this year to Bhutan. Thomas has travelled to all his destinations many times, so he is very knowledgeable about the area, people, etc. He knows the guides and knows exactly where to stay and the most interesting places to go and see. He has a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun. He is patient about answering all the questions when preparing for the trip-the ins and outs of what to take, wear, etc. Although they are technically photographic trips, Thomas welcomes any level, from point and shoots, to more professional camera equipment. Since he himself owns and uses different camera brands and types (Canon, Nikon, Sony), he is very knowledgeable on how each one works and the difference and is very helpful and patient with assisting everyone. He makes sure you are in the right spot and time to get the best photo. You can't go wrong by joining Thomas on one of his exciting journeys.

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
