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 whole trip from beginning to end was very well organised and it was a pure pleasure to be in India. As for our tour leader, Karan Modi, he made our trip!! His patience, expertise and organisational skills were unbelievable. He certainly went the extra mile to make our visit exceptional. Well done to everyone!
Our guide, Marcos Felix, was outstanding. His passion for the animals was obvious and he appeared to take just as much pleasure in watching the Jaguars, Tapirs, Giant Otters and all the birds as we did. I was amazed, not only at seeing nine different Jaguars, but at seeing six Tapirs, four of which were in the daytime. This really is an amazing trip that I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to see the amazing animals of South America.
The tour leader, Harsha, was a very personable and knowledgeable leader, not only about the birds and mammals we saw, but about the Indian subcontinent in general. We were able to discuss tribes, customs, food, spices, cooking and religion. We had some good fun as well as the serious business of tiger spotting.
