This safari was all about being open minded to the unexpected joys of life and appreciating a culture that is very distinct from ones’ own.
The brief to Joro was to show us something really different. As 6 well travelled adults it can be difficult to find new adventures and they exceeded all expectations. We found ourselves camel trekking with the Samburu in Northern Kenya. By day we were walking across diverse terrain and by night we relaxed and enjoyed the silence under a billion stars. With a well organised and highly amusing staff, combined with a train of camels who carry all equipment and food, this trek through one of the last true wildernesses with a tribe that has lived in these semi-arid lands for millennia, is something we will never forget.
I trusted Joro with the dangerous task of organising a honeymoon, and I’m thrilled to say that they absolutely nailed it.
We were going on Safari, and to Africa, for the first time and it was a completely magical experience. Duncan and Henry were so helpful throughout, and Duncan’s encyclopedic knowledge of the Okavango Delta and all things safari were invaluable throughout the planning process. I agonised over every detail before booking, constantly asking for things to be re-jigged, and nothing was too much trouble for Duncan as he looked to get things just right. We had a magical time, and everything was exactly as we had expected it to be from our conversations with Joro, and perfectly tailored to us. We even used our debrief session after the trip to start planning the next one with them, can’t wait to get back out there! Thanks guys for getting our marriage off to a flying start!
Joro looked after us from the very moment we decided to go to Sri Lanka.
Until the day we got back and I have never known such a stress free and exciting process when booking a holiday. We have memories filled with luxurious pools, stunning beaches, fine dining, cloud forest adventures, thrilling safaris, sunrise kayaking and spectacular views to enjoy forever.
We approached Duncan and the Joro team after seeing one of their exciting sample adventure itineraries.
Eight of us in total – husband/wife and three somewhat grown-up kids with partners. We only gave them a few short weeks notice for our trip from Australia to Vietnam and asked what can you suggest? We couldn’t complete everything they offered but we tried. Seaplane to Halong Bay. Several nights on a private junk cruising the islands. Motorbike food tour of Hanoi. Kids said it was the best holiday ever. Looking forward to your ideas for the Greek Islands next year!
We had heard excellent reports about Joro Experiences and they certainly didn’t disappoint!
They exceeded all expectations. My son was working as an intern in Colombia for six months and so we decided a visit would be ideal. Henry, the founder of Joro Experiences was our contact all the way through, even in Colombia. Although backed up by their excellent concierge service which gave huge peace of mind, knowing that the person who had organised our trip, was involved if we needed it – which we didn’t! Our holiday certainly was an experience, visiting five regions of Colombia in two weeks.
