Expectations of Participants

Please keep in mind that the very nature of a natural history focused tour will put us in out-of-the-way places. This means walking trails might be rough or steep, and roads bumpy.  Conditions frequently are not the same as in the United States.  Our accommodations will be comfortable to old world luxury, but service is always at the pace of local custom. Please leave your country with the attitude that you are travelling to experience some of the legendary landscapes on the planet.
