Close up wildlife encounters are a great reason to travel. Our specialists know the best places to stay and the secret spots where you can give yourself the best possible chance of a first-hand encounter.

Hugely popular are big cat encounters, whether that’s lions in Africa, Jaguars in Brazil, tigers in India and Sri Lanka or pumas in Patagonia. Perhaps it’s primates, encounters with which provide incredible memories, be it gorillas in Rwanda, chimps in Tanzania or orangutans in Borneo. Bear watching can be a powerful experience, from seeing brown bears in Europe, grizzlies and black bears in Canada to spectacled bears in Peru and the mighty polar bear in Canada or Svalbard. For others it’s whales, from boat-based observation to actually getting in the water and swimming with these leviathans.
