Country Visited: Botswana

Having been on safari many times before, I had high expectations from this trip to Botswana.

At the end of it, I must say, the trip not only fulfilled my expectations but exceeded them by quite a margin.

The safari started off with a bang, with sighting of a fight between 2 wild dog packs on our first drive and ended on a high note when we had sighting of a mother leopard moving her tiny little cub, holding it gently in her jaws. The time in between was filled up with lions, cheetah, elephants and wild dogs (again and again and again!).

What impressed me most was the planning and execution. 3 nights in each of the 3 areas allowed sufficient time to get a feel of the place. It did not feel rushed at all, as sometimes it does, with 2 night itineraries when you feel you have just scratched surface of the place. Spending one night on each side of the trip in Maun ensured we were well rested.

The guiding was top notch, tents comfortable and food outstanding. Jami and Theo were great company, always ensuring every member of the group got what he/she wanted from the trip. Although I was a solo traveller, I never felt out of place or alone. The superb entertainment that they provided with their light good natured banter was of course a big bonus :-).

I would certainly recommend Wild Focus Expeditions to other travellers who want to experience something different.

I am looking forward to joining Jami & Theo one one of their expeditions in near future, but this time with my family.

Country Visited: Svalbard

No words to describe this amazing adventure with a group of like minded people who also are in love with nature and the Arctic. Our Wild Focus guides were so much fun and filled with knowledge and answered all our questions while keeping us safe. I will most definitely be returning to this magical place with endless landscapes to fill the heart with so much gratitude for life and the people that I was fortunate enough to share each moment with. Not only did we capture wildlife memories on film or in our photographs, we also captured friendships for life. Jami and Theo are beyond wonderful people, whom I have known for about ten years. I was fortunate enough to spend time in Alaska with them many years ago and knew they were special people then and were in my heart to stay. I now feel even closer to them sharing these magical moments in Svalbard. If you get the opportunity to join Wild Focus Expeditions on one of their unbelievable journeys, you will never forget the sights or the magic that the nature and landscapes has to offer. I love SVALBARD!! We already have discussed a reunion trip!! Thank you to the crew and Staff of the MS ORIGO. Outstanding food and cartoon drawings of our day to day events. I would recommend this expedition to anyone. Much love to all who were there.

This was our first ever photo expedition and thanks to Jami and Theo, certainly will not be our last. Wild Focus Expeditions’ ability to structure and reach places on this planet that we never could accomplish on our own, was one of the big draws for this trip. And….our leaders and guides delivered. Before our trip began, we already had received the personal touch – as Jami met with me for lunch and put my mind at ease. She reviewed my equipment and made gear recommendations, as well as other hand holding. As for the trip, the handpicked guides of Jens and Audun was brilliant, as their knowledge of the arctic complimented Theo and Jami’s photography and nature skills.

We snowmobiled for the first time: what a great way to kick off the trip. Our boat, the M/S Origo was well matched with our goals, the crew very service oriented and quite accommodating – and the Chef kept us very well fed. We never imagined encountering our best ever lamb meal north of the arctic circle. Theo and Jami were attentive to our personal and photography needs, we definitely advanced our picture taking skills. We appreciated that you did not have to be a hard core photographer to learn from and enjoy this trip.

But best of all, our leaders and guides put us in position to experience and photograph nature and wildlife as we have never done before. Reindeer, arctic fox, seal, walrus, belugas, and most sought after – polar bear. That our zodiacs could be positioned to follow polar bear for several hours within a stones throw distance, is a testament to the skill set of those leading our group.

We highly recommend Wild Focus Expeditions, and eagerly await our next opportunity to travel with Jami and Theo. This was our first trip with them, but God willing, will not be our last. Thank you for such an amazing and unique experience!

Another amazing excursion with Wild Focus Expeditions to a truly surreal location to observe & photograph some of the less seen creatures of our planet. An adventure of a lifetime not to be missed.

Country Visited: India

Amazing trip! This was a first for me. Wild Focus Expeditions really set a high bar for any future trips. I was a little nervous about traveling in India however that was settle early as we had expert guides for every part of our travels. The games drives were a blast, racing through the Reserve hunting for Tigers. I came home with a lot of Tiger pictures, Males, Females with clubs, tigers in water, cubs playing tag and much more. Exciting and educational, the India tour really was life changing. Thank You Jami and Theo for all your help and making this the best experience of my travels.

Not knowing what to expect in such a remote area of the Svalbard archipelago I was consumed with the beauty of the Islands, Fiords and wildlife. This region is not for the faint of heart YET Theo and Jami put together a once in a lifetime safe experience for those desiring to photograph the beauty of this small area of our planet.

I consider myself an amateur photographer always eager to learn from experienced professionals. Both Theo and Jami are willing to both teach and critique which made this trip even better then one could expect. The guides, chef and crew were experienced and catered to all our needs. The food was gourmet considering where we were.

Lastly, this is the second trip in 10 months spent with Wild Focus Expeditions, the other being Kenya. I look forward to other opportunities to be among a small group in another part of the world with them.
