Our range of wildlife holidays offering you the opportunity to see the world’s most sought after mammals can’t be beaten.

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

Naturetrek mammal watching tours

Why choose a Naturetrek mammal watching tour?

Many of Naturetrek’s tours have a primary focus on mammals and we offer the widest choices of mammal watching holidays across the globe, from the Arctic to the tropics.

Our holidays are guided by at least one professional naturalist tour leader. Our groups usually also benefit from additional guiding by expert local naturalist guides.

On most of our holidays we take a wider wildlife interest beyond just mammals.

We have holidays to see an incredible range of the world’s mammals, such as Orang Utans, lemurs, bats, polar mammals, big & small cats, and mammals of the African savannah or the rainforest.

Here’s a selection of our mammal tours:

  • India’s Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve

Just Tigers!

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip - it surpassed our expectations and offered us not only great Tiger sightings but a wonderful experience of Indian wildlife and birds. Would not hesitate to recommend Naturetrek to others. The opportunities to experience the diversity of wildlife, particularly at Kanha and Bharatpur, which was greatly enhanced by the knowledge and experience of the tour leaders. The accommodation at Tuli Tiger Resort and the Birders Inn - both attractive in their settings, clean and comfortable. The staff at Tuli in particular were all delightful and seemed to take a great pride in their work and thoroughly enjoy their employment. A group of 10 seemed ideal and we enjoyed our shared wildlife interests. The holiday was very well organised and all the expectations raised by your promotion material were more than lived up to in our experience of the trip. The information was also comprehensive, accurate and helpfully covered everything we needed to know.

Just Tigers!

The most memorable part was seeing a tiger in the wild for the first time - a beautiful tigress sitting upon a rock. Her eyes and mine locked ... absolutely electrifying. I couldn't help weeping with joy.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Our guide, Paulo, was brilliant. His enthusiasm and knowledge added so much to the trip. The viewing of wildlife was above and beyond my expectations.
