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
The organisation worked perfectly, the accommodation was absolutely fine (basic at the lodges, really great in the suite on the flotel) and our guide Paulo worked tirelessly to ensure we had a wonderful time. His enthusiasm and helpfulness know no bounds and he made the whole experience incredible. He also ensured we got as many sighting opportunities as possible whilst adopting a very responsible attitude to protect the animals we saw. In fact all the people involved that we met were friendly, professional and helpful, from boat and truck drivers to lodge staff. This was our first trip with Naturetrek and we have been so impressed that we have just booked another trip.
My main memory is of how good both tour guides were - efficient yet relaxed, friendly but not over-friendly, always approachable and knowledgeable ... Naturetrek's efficiency in arranging train travel to Spain and vegan food was very good.
Kike was an excellent guide being extremely knowledgeable about all flora and fauna and also very calm when managing issues within the group. He really went beyond the call of duty to ensure everything ran well and we all had a marvellous time. The time spent at the flotel (the Jaguar suites are a real luxury) and out on the river searching for wildlife was fantastic. We had 10 Jaguar spots of 6 different cats with some quality viewings including a female hunting Caiman and a confrontation between a male and female and another male - amazing.
