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.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Mammals HOLIDAYS
Naturetrek's organisation was excellent, the viewings of jaguar ocelot, giant anteater and giant river otter exceeded our expectations - we were VERY fortunate!
Firstly I have to say that although I have enjoyed all of the tours that I have taken with Naturetrek, the 'Just Jaguars' tour exceeded all my expectations due to the excellent sightings, the varierty of accommodation, my fellow travellers, but mainly because of the enthusiasm and determination of our guide Paulo to find us all we had hoped to see and much, much more, he really did give us 110%, willingly and happily. I know that myself and the rest of the group really appreciated his efforts and I hope many more of your clients will have the benefit of his guiding. All in all a very fulfilling, interesting and delightful trip, many thanks.
We couldn’t have asked for better tour leaders – Tony and Desi. They had an impressive knowledge and a great sense of humour. We had always travelled independently and never with a group before, but we really enjoyed this experience and will be doing it again.
