Country Visited: Svalbard

As a nature lover this was a trip of a lifetime, I always wished to go on an expedition out far into the wilderness and it came true with Wild Focus Expeditions. Being able to go out deep into remote wild places and experience wilderness at its best was wonderful. Theo and Jami are not only renowned wildlife photographers but they are great professionals and persons. Another important aspect for me is that they always work in avoiding creating an impact on the environment, the animals and their habitat, part of it is having small groups which makes the experience even more enjoyable. The crew from the Freya and the two polar bear guides were also amazing. In the future my husband and I will consider planning more trips with Wild Focus Expeditions.

Country Visited: Kenya

Our trip to Kenya was fascinating and great fun. It was very well organized. We learned so much about wildlife and the local culture.

Each park was unique. It left us wanting to see more. I highly recommend this trip and Jami. She is knowledgeable and genuinely cares about both animals and people, and made sure we all had a great time and brought home great memories.

Simply a life changing experience! The Arctic is a magical place, and with Wild Focus Expeditions you get to see it in a way that not many people get a chance to experience. With only 12 people we had two wonderful professional photographers at our disposal 24/7 as well as two wonderful guides/naturalists. We saw everything that the Arctic has to offer and came home with amazing photos, life long memories and many new friends.

Jami and Theo are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. You won’t find anyone who offers a better trip and a better value. I highly recommend Wild Focus Expeditions to anyone who wants a very special experience.

Country Visited: Kenya

After many years of talking to friends and researching safaris to Africa, my husband and I finally decided to go to Kenya with Wild Focus Expeditions. The trip was everything we hoped it would be and more. It’s impossible to explain just how spectacular Kenya is – the animals foremost – the scenery and the hospitality of the locals a close second and third. Our tour organizer and constant companion, Jami Tarris, made everything easy for us in the seemingly effortless way that she has, from the initial travel arrangements to the trip itself. Everything was perfectly planned. I can’t say that I would change anything about it except perhaps to stay longer. The local guides who drove us everywhere were particularly gracious, knowledgeable and personable. The vehicles were comfortable and well-outfitted, the accommodations were good to superior, as was the food. We were sad to leave Kenya, the spell-binding animals, the vast and varied landscape, and the kind, warm-hearted people. We have travelled quite a bit, and we would rank this trip at the very top.

Country Visited: Kenya

This was one of the most exciting and well planned trips we have ever taken.

From the time we landed in Nairobi to our departure, the attention to detail was superb. It was a small group which allowed for a great deal of personnel attention.

The trip to the Samburu Village was a great and the people very interested in us as well. They danced for us and were very welcoming.

The Safari covered 3 areas in Kenya, all of which were teeming with wildlife. Our guide Mwashi was top drawer and very well informed. He was patient, spoke perfectly clear English and went out of his way to ensure we saw all different kinds of species. His knowledge of birds was amazing. With so many of them everywhere it just added to the experience. We had the opportunity to see a lion kill in the great migration. Many other very exciting sights on the trail were so easy to photograph given Jami’s and Mwashi’s expertise.

We saw a black rhino which was quite a joy. Giraffes in pairs with babies which was a thrill.

When we got to the Masai Mara, we were fortunate to see lions mating which is quite rare. Herds of Zebra and Hippos were all around us especially in the area we stayed. The river banks were filled with Elephants and their young. We were amazed at every turn. We even saw a Leopard and it was a thrill.
The accommodations were terrific. The rooms were well appointed great attention to detail. The food in the 3 places we stayed was excellent.

Our guide and photography expert Jami was filled with interesting details and facts about the animals and helped us with our photography to ensure we got the best shots possible.

Country Visited: Svalbard

My wife and I were privileged to be part of the Svalbard expedition. I could not wait to go but my wife was very apprehensive. AS the trip progressed her perspective changed dramatically and it ended with her having an extremely memorable and positive experience. I should say that we also celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on the trip and Jami and Theo made sure it was a special time for us.

If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience this is it. The accommodations were surprisingly comfortable, the food was excellent, the effort put into placing us in the right spot to see wildlife and scenery few are privileged to see was above and beyond. Jami and Theo are without doubt true professionals but beyond their professional expertise their personalities and genuine interest in the expedition participants created an atmosphere of fun, caring and true friendship. All which greatly enhanced the overall experience.
From my perspective the test of a great experience rests in the question, “Would you go with the trip leaders again”? My answer is unequivocally and resoundingly yes! Jami and Theo were as important to the overall success of our trip as was the remarkable place we were privileged to experience.
