Did you know that if you've been browsing our website, trying to make up your mind about where to go on holiday, a lot of what you've been reading has been contributed by travellers just like you!

What is the Far & Wild Community?

20 years of organising trips all over the world has taught me that you - our customers - often know a lot more than we do about the regions, lodges and activities in our holiday destinations. Returning from a trip with us, you'll naturally be more up-to-date than we are here in the office, so at that moment, it's you who are the specialists.

I'm also frequently reminded that our suppliers and colleagues on the ground in our destinations are an incredibly valuable repository of information. A wildlife guide, a scuba diving instructor or a lodge chef will be infinitely more knowledgeable than we'll ever be about the best places to go to spot wild dogs, where to swim with whale sharks, or the tastiest local delicacies to try.

So what are we doing with all this knowledge and expertise?

We've decided to let you - our customers, partners and suppliers around the world - contribute your experiences to our website. Why?

“Because if our customers can use the expertise and insights of our travel community, we'll be radically improving the likelihood of you having not just a good holiday, but a truly great one.”

In due course we'll be publishing a brochure comprised entirely of contributions from this community...all the words and all the photos...from front cover to back. Real. Expert. And History Making. This will be a travel industry first, and we'd love you to be part of that.

Who can be members of the tribe?

Our travel community has three different contributor categories, and you'll see their content indicated by small coloured dots all over our website:

Community Colour Key

TRAVELLERS - customers, travellers, people who've been there and experienced it

INDUSTRY INSIDERS - insider experts from within the travel sector

LOCAL EXPERTS - local experts, conservationists, city guides, wildlife rangers, biologists...

How can you get involved?

Simply by sending us WORDS and IMAGES about your holiday! You can contribute any of the below:

Examining Wildlife Tracks Somalisa Acacia
Children can be experts too!
Ladakh Festival
Tell us what you thought of that festival you visited
Train In  Sri  Lanka

Check out the Far And Wild Community Guidelines for more information and detail about how you can get involved.

And finally...don't worry about being an expert writer...our editor will check everything before publishing, and let you see the finished result!
