Mammal Watching Holidays
Many of the world’s mammals are instantly recognisable to us. Animals such as lions, Tigers, elephants and bears capture our imaginations from childhood. Fulfilling what is for many people a lifelong dream of seeing their ‘wish list’ species in the wild is something we take great pleasure and pride in doing.
Our mammal specialist recommends …
I would recommend Chiles Blue Whales & Pumas for combining stunning scenery and wildlife. Closer to home, short breaks to Spain in search of Wolves and Iberian Lynx are hard to beat. For those seeking adventure, Africa holds many possibilities, including a chance to watch Mountain Gorillas. And India, along with Tigers, has a superb variety of mammals. - Paul Stanbury

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Mammals HOLIDAYS
We felt that this was an incredible holiday. The wildlife seen was beyond our expectations, we had tiger sightings virtually every trip! We would also like to comment that our leader Nick (Acheson) was exceptional. His knowledge of all wildlife seen was amazing, plus his knowledge of Indian life and culture added to the holiday.
The holiday was absolutely wonderful - the leaders so helpful and knowledgeable, the hotels excellent, the organisation faultless. Actually, I shouldn’t describe it as a holiday, it was an adventure and everyone should have one!
We have just returned from this tour with Naturetrek. It was quite simply one of the best wildlife experiences imaginable. We saw 7 individual Jaguars in a total of about 14 sightings. Our guide was Marcos Felix who could not have been better. He worked incredibly hard to ensure we saw the maximum amount of wildlife - and it is not always easy in the thick undergrowth. His spotting of animals and birds at long range was exceptional. He had an uncanny ability to anticipate where Jaguars in particular were going to turn up and even managed to produce a small video of the tour by working late at night. In some 10 years of wildlife photography trips this has to rank as one of the best ever and this was in many ways because of Marcos's hard work and expertise.
