Big Cats Holidays

We offer a number of specially designed big cat tours which will provide you with unique opportunities to observe these charismatic mammals.

Big Cat Tours

Big cats are among the world’s most admired and most sought-after mammals, and Naturetrek has the broadest and most comprehensive range of holidays in search of big cats. We offer holidays to watch all of the world’s most iconic cat species including: Tigers in India and Nepal, Jaguars in the Pantanal, Pumas in Chile and Snow Leopards in India, as well as safaris to see a superb variety of Africa’s cats such as Lions, Cheetah and Leopards. You can also look for Asiatic Lions in India, and Leopards in Sri Lanka on our tours. We do not neglect the smaller species of cat and we also offer dedicated short breaks which go in search of Wildcat and Iberian Lynx.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Big Cats Holidays HOLIDAYS

First and foremost, it was an absolutely brilliant trip and I loved everything about being in Ladakh, although it will take something special to top a snow leopard; seeing this will obviously live with me for ever. The team on the ground in Ladakh was fantastic - not just the main guides, Jigmet and Tashi, but every one of the team worked so hard to make our dream come true. I can’t thank them enough.
We had a fabulous holiday and the Jaguar sightings were beyond our expectations. Along with Giant River Otters and so so much more, and a Puma one night even made Marcos' day! Everything went smoothly and Marcos was a charming young man. Obviously we went in the hope of seeing Jaguars and we were not disappointed - one day we watched for such a long time walking along the river bank - stopping to drink and swim.
Overall an excellent trip. So far, the best area visited for wildlife, with excellent viewing from the open-sided trucks and especially the boats in the 'Jaguar Zone'. Marcos was one of the best local guides we have had. Excellent in the field and a clear communicator - good at sharing his knowledge with his group, and full of enthusiasm. The Pantanal is superb for getting involved in the day to day lives of the animals and birds and Naturetrek's itinerary and guides ensured we saw just about everything on offer.
