Benefits Our Clients Experience

We strive for flexible itineraries. When wildlife opportunities occur, our clients are able to take full advantage of the experience. The schedules are not time-sensitive and the routes are not dictated by a specific itinerary. Go where the wildlife is and stay as long as the wildlife does.

Our clients reap the benefits of the experience and knowledge of the most qualified destination and wildlife guides. We focus on itineraries that provide our clients the most unique, rare and exceptional wildlife opportunities.

Nourishing their spirit of adventure and desire to learn is tantamount to our clients. They want to connect with the wildlife, history and culture of the destination. They don’t just want to see the destination, they need to experience it. Our clients include soft adventurists to the extremely fit, who welcome opportunities to get closer to nature and wildlife in remote locations. Our client is constantly working on improving himself/herself and wants to make a positive difference in our world.

We focus on trips with opportunities to travel with renowned photographers, naturalists, environmentalists and wildlife experts, as well as historians, culinary and wine experts. Our clients enjoy sharing good conversations with other well-travelled fellow guests. Our client wants to experience connections not only with the wildlife, culture and people of the destination, but also want opportunities to connect with others who share their interests and passions.

We share our clients’ values. We believe in responsible tourism. Wildlife conservation, preserving the environment and giving back to the communities and cultures of the destinations visited is our foundation.What separates us from other travel agents is our wildlife expertise, professional connections and commitment to provide unique luxury experiences; a journey that will open your eyes, broaden your mind and resonate in your soul. Your customized “World of Wildlife” vacation will be a life-changing opportunity.

Our clients experience wildlife in the natural world, with a twist of luxury – see what they have to say below!

  • I was fortunate to book my holiday in the fall of 2012 with Shauna Treichel, of World of Wildlife Travel. My Master Plan was to have a few days in London on my own, before heading to Italy on a tour. I provided Shauna a list of places that for me, with must-sees. She did extensive research for me and offered me a number of tours of Italy. One tour hit all of the items on my wish list. Shauna also booked my flights, my favourite hotel in London, and my dream tour of Italy. Because of flight timings, she even made arrangements for a private car from the airport to my hotel in Rome. The entire excursion was my dream vacation. Now, where to next?

  • I have had Shauna Treichel as my travel agent for the past 4 years. Shauna has been able to provide me and my family with vacations within our budget and able to seek out any perks that may come with the vacation. I trust her opinion on the travel destinations and would recommend Shauna to anyone – I had already to my mom and she contacts Shauna as well!!!!

  • We’ve have had Shauna Treichel, of WOW, planning trips for us for 5 years now and we have found them to be very professional and knowledgeable in the travel industry. They have organized my daughter’s fastball team trip to Fresno/San Francisco for a group of 20, my niece’s wedding (60 people) in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico, a group of 5 hiking on the east coast trail in Newfoundland, and a Mother/daughter weekend in San Francisco for myself. Each time, they have more than exceeded our expectations making our trips pleasant and memorable. We have recommended them to family and friends and will continue to use their services.

  • Nothing makes your trip more enjoyable and relaxing than when it is worry free!!! Booking this trip (and others we have taken) through Shauna of WOW Travel gave us total comfort and confidence that our trip would be safe and without issues or problems… which can be a big concern when traveling to the other side of the world and going on wildlife safaris! With WOW’s travel expertise and wildlife knowledge they always ensure our vacations have been superb, hassle free, and informative; which is what we all want our vacations to be!
    Africa was the most fascinating and memorable experience I have ever had! Nothing has ever come close… and I don’t feel anything can. Africa is truly a trip of a life time and your best decision will be to book it with Shauna Treichel of WOW Travel!

  • My wife and I plus 8 friends went on a 12 day Mediterranean cruise starting in Rome and ending in Venice. Four of us left from Edmonton, two from Regina and four from Phoenix. We then spent a week in Tuscany and another 4 days in Rome. Shauna and Dean organized the entire trip including flights, the cruise, excursions at each port, land transfers when we arrived in Venice, our accommodations in Tuscany and Rome and daily excursions during our stay in Tuscany and Rome.
    The entire itinerary went off without as much as a hiccup. During the cruise there was a tour guide waiting for us at each port of call. The tour guides spoke fluent English, were very knowledgeable and the mode of transportation (be it 10 passenger buses, passenger cars, or larger buses) were all very clean and well maintained. On each of these tours there were only the 10 of us that were travelling together. The cost of these tours was also ½ to 2/3 less than the same tours offered by the cruise line. The tour guides were most accommodating, stopping whenever and where ever we wanted to stop, besides the scheduled tour stops.
    When we were staying in Tuscany the tours were scheduled to start at 10:00 each morning. The bus was there just after 9:00 each morning patiently waiting for everyone to get on board and we didn’t get back until well after dark. They had no problem stopping so we could pick up some groceries or perhaps the odd bottle of wine (I think there was still some red wine left in Italy after we went home but that wasn’t our fault).
    A huge thank-you to Shauna and Dean for a job well done!

  • Thanks to Shauna’s expert touch, I had a wonderful weekend of enjoying my kind of wildlife in their natural environment. The urbanites at Saks, Tiffany’s, and Michael Kors. The thespians at Kinky Boots and the ballet. And, let’s not forget the sharks on Bay Street and the aquarium, all behind think layers of glass!
    The mini vacation was so much more than champagne and chocolates in the room, which we did have. The key to successfully enjoying this trip, filled with pampering and relaxing, was the attention to details. Shaun’s WOW enthusiasm made sure the car was booked to take us to our planned excursions, our hotel was close to the best restaurants and shopping, and everyone surrounding us knew we were coming for a birthday weekend for my mum. Everyone we met, thanks to Shauna’s advanced planning, made us feel like royalty.
    Thank you Shauna!

  • Over the years I have used a number of travel agents in different areas where I have lived. Usually I spend hours on the internet researching vacation destinations and different hotels.
    Well, this year it was completely different. After a disastrous experience with another travel agent, I approached Shauna with the mess in our opinion, she saved our trip.
    I have never ever had this level of service in my entire life. She knew exactly which resort to put us in based on her personal experience. Throughout our trip, any time I emailed Shauna a question she would get back to me right away with ample information and all the right answers.
    I have told every single person I come into contact with what an excellent travel agent Shauna is. It goes without saying that I will not take another trip without Shauna organizing it. I cannot thank her enough for all the extras, for going above and beyond, and for being there throughout this experience.
    Shauna, you made us all feel like royalty, thank you for saving our trip and making the experience better than we ever dreamed. Our group can’t wait to see what you will have in store for us next year!
