EcoQuest Travel is dedicated to providing the best possible wildlife viewing experiences. Our expertise also allows this to be done in the most ecologically and socially responsible manner. We understand the connection between local communities and the natural world and strive to foster this connection whenever and wherever possible.

To help meet these goals we specialize in small group travel. Each group normally consists of between 8 and 15 participants accompanied by at least one of EcoQuest Travel’s professional guides. Our guides are highly trained scientists and naturalists who provide not only the best handling of trip logistics, but expert knowledge of the wildlife, environment and conservation issues at each of our destinations.

In addition, EcoQuest Travel always utilizes the best local guides who consistently enhance the trip experience with their cultural insight, unique perspectives and intimate knowledge of each locality. We also emphasize fun – it is after all your vacation. We want you to enjoy your trip to the fullest and we treat every trip as though it were a trip of a lifetime.

We are passionate about the world and all its inhabitants and we invite you to journey with us as we explore the richness and beauty of nature. Join an EcoQuest Travel trip and marvel at the world around you, explore it, embrace it, learn about it and help save it!
