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
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.
Claude was very good as a guide, relaxed and efficient with good level of knowledge and willing to share it above and beyond duty. Food exceeded expectations, far better than led to believe. Overall a very good trip. Thankyou.
Overall, I had the holiday of a lifetime! The knowledge and enthusiasm of the leaders was outstanding - I have learnt so much about nature, birds and mammals. As for tiger sightings at close range - it was a dream come true! I wil be reliving the thrills and excitment in my mind forever! The whole experience was amazing - thank you for making it possible for me!
