About our Wildlife holidays

Highlights

  • Get up close and personal with an elusive silverback gorilla
  • Madagascar's unique wildlife, including Lemurs & the Indri Indri
  • Spot Rhino on an Elephant Safari in Chitwan National Park
  • Game drive across the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania
  • See penguins, whales or polar bears on a Polar Cruise

Our wildlife and safari holidays take you up close and personal to the world's most incredible animals. Wildlife experiences can take on many forms: a vehicle specially adapted for game viewing in Tanzania and India; boat trips in Borneo viewing proboscis monkeys, cruising to the enchanted polar regions to see penguins and polar bears; or on foot you can see Lemurs in Madagascar or a mountain gorilla on trek in Rwanda. 

Watching an endangered tiger softly pace up the dirt track from your jeep, or tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda can be a life changing moment. On all of our safari's we ensure that you will have the best knowledge and experience with an expert guide informing you of the best sights and stories of the wildlife you are seeing.

Many of our safari's include sightseeing of the surrounding areas as well and possibly a few days walking, for example you can see howler monkeys in Costa Rica as well as trekking through the jungle, scale Rwanda's highest peak after seeing a gorilla, camp and trek in Bhutan and also see black necked cranes, or in China take your family and see the terracotta warriors, the Great Wall and a panda bear.  You can also view wildlife on some of our cycling tours such as the elusive wild elephant at Minneriya on our Sri Lanka Coast to Coast ride.

If you are looking for an adventure holiday which includes some of the world's endangered species of wildlife then you are sure to find a holiday to suit you within our wildlife and safari selection.

range as well as many species of antelope etc and also Wild Dog which are now very rare. The trip was also a paradise for birders. Our South African guides were immensely knowledgeable and Grace in particular was an excellent cook who produced tasty food which most of us preferred to the meals we took in the restaurants in the lodges. The trip into the Okavango by canoe was also a highlight. A slight downside was the lodges mostly produced buffet meals at a fixed price without the option of going a la carte. This is fine if you are a big eater and like whats provided. We would have preferred to be able to choose what and how much to eat from the menu. Where we were able to do this the food was good. The local guides for each national park and the Chobe River trip were very good and helpful in spotting and identifying animals and birds. You have to be prepared to put up with a few long days on the road which is understandable considering the distances involved. Early starts are also essential for game drives avoiding the heat of the day when animals are less active. The dates of our trip corresponded with a time when the bush was less leafy enabling us to observe animal much more easily but despite it being the dry season Victoria Falls was still an amazing sight. All in all a great trip. Roger and Di Simmons.
