When people think of wildlife holidays and close-up encounters with animals, they usually think of Africa and the classic safari experience. Beyond the Big Five though there are an enormous number of wildlife experiences available.
One of the world’s great wildlife experiences is available in the Galapagos Islands, where expedition-style ships let you view marine iguanas, giant tortoises and other marine life. South America is also home to the Amazon rainforest, which covers a number of countries that we offer wildlife holidays in. Explore the Manu Reserve or Tambopata in Peru, stay at award-winning lodges in Ecuador or access less-visited corners of forest in Colombia.
Elsewhere, if you want to track tigers in India, see polar bears in Canada, get close to orangutans in Borneo or discover Komodo dragons in Indonesia, we can help. Alternatively, if diving the Great Barrier Reef or swimming with whale sharks off Ningaloo Reef are on your wish list, we have suggestions for you too. We can even transport you to Antarctica for a truly once-in-a-lifetime chance to see penguins, seals and whales.
