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.

Kilimanjaro and Safari   Lawrence (Altrincham)

Kilimanjaro Trek is excellent and extremely well organised. Definitely take altitude sickness tablets, walking poles, pack your clothes in dry bags inside the kit bag and use a camelback for drinking water. The

guides are very knowledgeable and duty of care is at the forefront of their minds. Food is prepared in camp by the cook and his kitchen porters - it is tasty and carb heavy but you need it. The views and are breathtaking, my camera did not do them justice but sometimes it's better to just immerse yourself in your surroundings. Safari was amazing, especially Tarangire and the luxury tents. You are unlikely to see anything better than on a David Attenborough doc, but to be there to experience the noises, smells and all the small things you don't see on TV is definitely worth the investment. Ngorongoro crater is a natural wonder but it did feel more like a "managed" reserve with all the animals enclosed in the crater. Nevertheless, we saw everything apart from the elusive leopard. I strongly encourage you to book Kili and safari!! After completing safari at Lake Manyara we went to Zanzibar on the extension. We booked 4 nights but 3 would have been enough, especially if you are not planning to splash out $40-90 pp for each tourist activity. We went on a walking tour of Stone Town but organised it through the company that transferred us between the airport and resort, which was cheaper. The resort (Shooting Star) was about an hour from the main town (Stone Town) and was the perfect place to unwind, but also felt a bit isolated and there was nowhere to explore on foot locally. The owner of the resort was around for a couple of days and seemed amicable at first but did cause offence and made inappropriate comments to female guests. I was pleased when he left! We did return to the UK with upset stomachs too, just to make you aware. Despite these unfortunate events, the staff at the resort were very good and made us feel welcome.
