BEST TRIP We have ever taken. Tony and Craig were excellent hosts. In fact so good we are joining the next expedition with them. We met so many interesting and fun guys and I am sure we will all be friends forever.
As I near MY SECOND trip with Man Expeditions, to Alaska, I couldn't help but go back and look at some of the pictures of my first trip.... It makes me smile immensely, and so I wanted to share a little bit about my story. A few years ago, I had seen very little of the world, and I had thought my first ever big trip, was going to be South Africa with my Ex, his home country. I was so taken by the South African culture, the man I knew and loved, and the beauty I had seen from all his amazing pictures. When my relationship ended, My dream of seeing South Africa seemed to have ended as well... THEN by complete chance, I was introduced to the Man Expeditions group via a friend, and Tony Knight reached out to me. After talking a bit, having some faith, and a bit of fate, I was able to book the Capetown trip, and might I add not knowing a single soul. Tony had made me feel so wanted and welcomed, to join this group of complete strangers. 😳 I was sure this opportunity came into my life for a reason, a chance to make one of my travel dreams come true, and a chance to heal, and so I took it. What transpired ended up being one of the most incredible and life changing experiences I've ever been able to have. Any pain I took going into that trip, was demolished. I met a group of men who loved me, cared for me, looked out for me, and who became my family. We were all on this trip for different reasons, but as we found, we all belonged there for a reason. Creating different paths of discovery for each other, and finding support in the activities that Tony had crafted for us. It was a series of experiences I have never done in my life, and to go through that with this family of men, created bonds I will carry with me forever. Man Expeditions is so much more than luxury, than adventure, then travel, it's an opportunity to step into the world, with a family, and do things you never would be able to do on your own. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for changing my life, through the trip of a lifetime. Tony and team, you're one in a million. I truly feel like the luckiest guy in the world, for having been introduced to Man Expeditions, for it has given me so so much.
I took my first trip with Man Expeditions on Feb 2016 to South Africa. To be very honest I was a bit apprehensive for a couple of reasons. For one, I heard about the trip on January 30th of 2016 giving me only 3 weeks to prepare for the whole thing. I also did not know anything about the organization or the Expedition Leader, Tony Knight. And even though I have been very fortunate to have previously traveled all over the world; this was going to be the first time for me going on my own and with a group of 18 guys that I did not know anything about. With that said, this was one of the best trips of my life, not only for feeling a sense of empowerment and self discovery but also to the fact that everything went according to schedule without not even one hiccup. I was also very fortunate that the group of men that I traveled with were the most decent, professional and friendly bunch that I could have ever hoped for. And last; what can I say about Tony Knight…I have the most respect for this individual who was able to coordinate and manage the entire trip to perfection, always making sure that everyone was included and having a great time. I can assure to everyone that reads this testimonial that if you were to contact anyone that was part of my group, they will have nothing but great things to say about the Man Expeditions Team and their entire experience. If you have the opportunity to take a trip with Man Expeditions, take it, I certainly recommend it. It could be a life changing experience as it was for me. Anyone that is contemplating taking a trip with Man Expeditions and may have some questions regarding my experience, please feel free to contact me.
Soul Lifting, Life Changing, Heart Raising, Fear Crushing, Love Affirming. We had an amazing expedition through Africa with a solid group of guys. Thanks Man Expeditions for such a memorable experience! We are booked to do the Alaska Glacier Expedition with the Man Expeditions crew again this Summer. CAN NOT WAIT!
So I went with Tony and Man Expeditions to South Africa in 2015 with Paul. It remains the best vacation of my life. I’m really itching to go on another trip with the group when I can get off work.
The reason why Man Expeditions is so great is Tony is organized to a T. When I go to a place, it’s difficult for me to figure out the great sights to see, places to eat, excursions to take, etc.
Tony does all that research for us. He finds all the best activities to do, manages the transportation, manages the food, everything. The amount of logistics he handles is staggering, and I’m so thankful.
All you have to do is show up!
So with that said, if you’re on the fence, I highly recommend going on a trip with Man Expeditions. You’ll meet some great people and have a stress free, exciting vacation that is truly once in a lifetime.
Can't say enough about Man Expeditions. Have been on the Southern Africa trips to Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa 2 years in a row. The adventures are always well planned and the group of men are the kinda guys you get to know and want to know for life. Can't wait for the Alaska adventure in a few weeks, it's gonna be completely different but just as exciting I'm sure. For those of you who are looking for well planned adventure trips with a great group of guys, Man Expeditions is the perfect choice. Come join the fun and feel the love.
"Man Expeditions trips are an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded guys from all over the world. In our group many of the people we met forged strong friendships that continue to this day. As an active, health-conscious person it is nice to have an alternative to party weekends where you can meet gay men in a social and healthy setting. I highly recommend Man Expeditions for your next travel adventure!”
A great experience with a great bunch of guys. To date I have done the Canadian Canoe Moose Safari and the Southern Africa Safari Expedition with the Man Expeditions crew and thoroughly enjoyed both. Tony was the Expedition Leader for both and was a fantastic leader. I also enjoyed the peace of mind having Tony lead the trip as he is a local born in South Africa and knows Africa well so I always felt safe under his leadership. I have already booked the next group trip in Africa. Cant wait!
Last February I joined the first Capetown, South African Man Expedition. I was especially attracted to the physically demanding itinerary items and to be going with like-minded men meant that I could meet some solid people with the possibility for ongoing friendship.
The itinerary was a super mix of fun-packed adventure with lots of free time built in to take in the culture and other amazing things that this awesome country has to offer (e.g. the southern sky and constellations I had never seen before at the Capetown Observatory).
With the expertise that our leaders Tony and Craig brought to bear from initial concept right through to the optional safari add-on excursion, including well-organized structure throughout, you'll be in good hands and come back with new lifelong friends, and amazing photos and stories you'll have for life. The experience is well worth the investment!
Man Expeditions is an amazing way to connect men trough an organic and energetic adventure. The community trips to Africa are fantastic! Love this travel community for gay men.
With many distinct personalities attending, Tony and Craig with Man Expeditions were able to design and implement an adventure for which we will have lifetime memories
