Pete and Renee's wow factor continues unabated and we returned home exhausted from the sensory overload of a trip which encompassed river safaris with animals from shoreline to horizon, roads where we sat next to relaxing lions and browsing elephants and walking where we were so close to Rhino, Chimpanzees and Gorillas that I needed a smaller zoom lens. As ever Pete, Renee and the local team were expert in anticipating behaviours and getting us in the right position for the best photos. We're already looking forward to the next trip. Thanks guys!

As a tropical biologist, I was able to travel extensively for work in wild places in the New World tropics. Our recent trip with Pete Oxford Expeditions to Uganda did more than allow me to realize a childhood dream of seeing chimpanzees and gorillas. The entire expedition was chock full of experiences--with wildlife viewing, cultural exchanges, learning about Uganda as we traveled in three luxury safaris! The local team, provided us with generous expertise and safe driving over 1000 miles on paved and unpaved roads. Our drivers knew the wildlife and best positions to take for viewing. Friendships formed quickly as we all the participants shared in views of elephants, rhinos, gorillas, shoebill storks, chimpanzees, kob, lions, hyena, hippopotomus, and many other primate, ungulate, and bird species. I fell in love with the people of Uganda, the delicious food, the strength of the people, and empowered women! Two of our three drivers were women and they turned heads all along the roads. Pete, Reneé, Harriet, and our drivers helped all of us fall in love with the "pearl of Africa" and I cannot wait to return to this must see wildlilfe-encountering destination.

Thank you so much Renee & Pete for all the help before & the enthusiasm, knowledge & great fun on our Journey through Uganda. Yet to look at photos, Gorillas, Rhino, Chimps, Shoebills etc etc, --but that will be wonderful & bring it all back. Here's to the next time!

There's not a single superlative to accurately describe our trip. So many highlights on an extremely well planned and executed experience. From the initial contact to sadly saying farewell everything was amazing. As an inexperienced snorkeler I was a little concerned to begin but the multitude of underwater settings and observing soon melted my concerns away! I absolutely loved it. The wealth of knowledge from Pete and Colette our guide was shared with both humour and sensitivity to the flora, fauna and landscapes that we were introduced to. Thank you for the opportunity to learn and experience the wonderful islands and of course the fabulous MV MaryAnne.

Visiting the Galapagos Islands was a trip very much on our bucket list. Pete Oxford Expeditions offered us a unique small group expedition that would be a life changing experience. It certainly lived up to expectations. Pete’s knowledge and enthusiasm was surpassed only be his passion to ensure that everyone in the group fully experienced the abundance of wildlife and the natural landscapes. The trip was fully immersive from beginning to end and we will not hesitate to book another bucket list experience with Pete and Renee.
