Bargain Mammal Watching

Naturetrek offers a wide selection of long-haul wildlife holidays primarily focusing on mammals. These tours offer an intensive mammal-centred focus, outstanding value for money and top quality sightings. They are led by at least one expert local English-speaking naturalist, and visit countries in Africa, Asia, South and Central America and more.

Our mammal specialist recommends...

I’d recommend ‘Ecuador – Amazonian Mammals’ for a good introduction to South America’s rainforest mammals. In Africa, it’s hard to beat our ‘Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park’ holiday for its combination of Leopards, other ‘big game’ and first-class accommodation! In Asia, try ‘India – Bandhavgarh National Park’ for Tigers and other Indian mammals.” - Paul Stanbury

The travel arrangements ran very smoothly even when the trains were late or the road closed, Dilip had a second plan that ensured the itinerary was not interrupted. The accommodation was good. I liked the difference in the two accommodations in that one was more traditional with very good ‘more Indian’ food and second more luxurious, with more activities on offer and the food Indian with a touch of more international style food I would say. Both were very food. Dilip was an excellent tour leader. It really helped that he handled all the tips etc. for us so we didn’t have to worry as to who to pay and how much all the time. He made life easy for us and he is very knowledgeable on birds, and tried to educate the rest of our group who were all keen to see the Tiger/Sloth Bear etc. more than the birds.
This was my first wildlife holiday and it turned out to be excellent. Bunty was excellent. His knowledge and friendly disposition helped make this trip. Out of 9 game drives we saw tigers on 7, and on 4 of those we saw more than one, and I had two elephant rides tracking the tigers. It was fantastic. I enjoy wildlife photography and the pictures I managed to take I’m pleased with – from the tigers through to black kites in Delhi. I would recommend you to my friends!

Ecuador - Amazonian Mammals

Staff at Naturetrek were so helpful and informative. The Napo Wildlife Centre was wonderful. We were looked after with such care and everything was taken care of. All we had to do was turn up for meals and arrive at the jetty for the trips. The venue and events far exceeded our expectations. Local guides Javier (Napo) and George (Quito) were exceptional in their knowledge and enthusiasm.
