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

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Bargain Mammals HOLIDAYS
One thing that struck me most about the holiday was that everything was taken care of. There was no occasion during the entire trip where I felt anything could go wrong, or that something had been forgotten. From being met at the airport to being dropped off again at the end of the trip, I didn’t have to worry about anything. And the pre-departure information, and the support from Rajan Jolly in answering my questions and helping me to tailor my travel arrangements, was excellent. I felt very well-prepared. The skills of our tour leaders and of our dedicated drivers meant we had as good a chance as you can possibly get to see wild animals. We saw glimpses of, and heard tigers every day, and the rest of the time was spent enjoying the reserve and seeing a wide variety of species. On the final day our guides and driver worked their magic and managed to get us first in the queue for the elephants, so we had fabulous close-up views of a resting tiger. Later in the day we were perfectly positioned when two tigers crossed a field right in front of us. Our tour leaders had the patience of saints. They were so polite and considerate. I’m sure we wouldn’t have minded being told to be quiet, or to adjust our behaviour, to make it easier for the guides. Sometimes we got carried away chatting and laughing; as a first-timer to group travel I couldn’t have been with a nicer set of people. It was great fun. And care had obviously been taken to ensure that, as a single female traveller, I felt secure in terms of accommodation and company…Overall, I had an absolutely wonderful trip, and would thoroughly recommend Bandhavgarh and Naturetrek. Thank you.
Wonderful people, knowledge of the guides/drivers very impressive. Learnt a lot about the area - saw three leopards - fabulous. Wonderful experience. Will book with Naturetrek again.
This was a fantastic trip, a truly magical experience. We had great company and saw a wealth of wildlife, not to mention the stunning scenery. The trip was extremely well organised and run; the local agents were so helpful and obliging and our particular leader was always ready to go the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction. We couldnt have asked for more. We look forward to travelling with Naturetrek again.
