Best Responsible Guide Company 2019

Nature Discovery was very efficient at organising my trek, I dealt directly with them rather than a travel agent. Whilst on the trek, the team of guides and porters were professional, knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend time with. An amazing experience all round. Thank you.

Lisa Huitson Australia

Nature Discovery are simply phenomenal. Without their superb planning, attention to detail, and the expertise of the guides we wouldn’t have been able to even attempt the World Record. (World’s Highest Football Match ) We cannot recommend the team highly enough and you can trust Ailsa, Thomas, MC and the team completely for your amazing adventures.

Thank you for the most amazing trip with the best bunch of guides and porters you could wish for…

The pictures are now doing the rounds and we are having a big get together at a local pub tomorrow evening to show all the pictures and videos taken and that will be a great evening and you and all of our guides etc will be very much in our thoughts. Our group had Honest, Nastoria, Edward and Laizer as our guides and they were absolutely fantastic. Please, please pass on our huge thanks to them all for their expert advice and encouragement that managed to get us all to the top and this was solely due to their magnificent help. The food was absolutely top class (better than the Lodge!!) and Good Luck a delight as our waiter.

I can’t thank you enough for the experience, something I know that will stay with me forever
