Simply the best ever!

I was probably the least rugged and least prepared person on the trip and the weather was not good, but it was still an awesome experience and I would do it again. The river is exhilarating, food delicious and our camp was set up and ready to go every afternoon when we got out of the rafts.

Myself and three friends joined this trip because of the descriptions of great food, comfortable camping with experienced guides who thought of everything. Our expectations were more than exceeded. The Safari Style trip provided very comfortable beds - and we were blown away by the level of detail that went into the full bar/wine tasting and delicious/healthy food for every meal. The guides were experienced/competent and friendly. Our group is not related to the Medical field, but we joined this Medtreks excursion and felt welcomed by the other medical professionals who joined (and additionally safe as a bonus!). ABSOLUTELY WORTH the additional cost to go with a Momentum Safari style trip - and the people who join a Medtreks journey are fun, intelligent and first-rate. I wold highly recommend this for ALL ages and experience levels.

I had an amazing time! My fear of doing outdoor stuff is what brought me to this trip. I have never been on a white water rafting trip or kayaking. But the wonderful guides were patient and encouraged me. Every little detail was thoughtful and appreciated. I have made connections with other strong and inspiring women. Mission accomplished, Med Treks! See you next year!
