Wildlife holidays in Asia
The variety of landscapes, peoples, cultures and wildlife to be found in Asia is quite remarkable. We have an intimate knowledge of this incredibly diverse continent and an amazing network of local contacts. Our holidays focus on iconic species like Tigers as well as more subtle delights such as Himalayan flora.
Our Asia specialist recommends..
"I’d recommend our ‘Splendours of Nepal’ holiday for an excellent introduction to the Himalaya. For Tigers, ‘Tiger Direct!’ maximises wildlife sightings and minimises travelling time. Our ‘Brahmaputra Cruise’ or ‘Snow Leopard Quest’ both offer a very different Indian experience, plus we have a good choice of bargain and family tours." - David Mills
What can I see?
Seeing Asian wildlife presents more of a challenge, in terms of patience and field skills, than traditional African style safaris. Whether you want to look for rainforest birds on foot or undertake a Himalayan trek, here’s a taste of Asia’s special wildlife experiences:
- Tigers – 100% sightings record on ‘Just Tigers!’ & ‘Tiger Direct!’ tours
- The Himalaya – Nepal, China & Bhutan
- Tropical rainforests of Borneo, Thailand & Malaysia
- Flowers, plus oak & rhododendron forests of the temperate Himalayan foothills
- Deserts, steppes & Tulip meadows of Kazakhstan
Asia’s ‘big game’
Tigers, Leopards, Snow Leopards, Asiatic Lions, Asian Elephants, Gaur (Asian Bison), Indian One-horned Rhinoceros, and Brown, Black and Sloth Bears are all seen on our holidays.
I really want to see Tigers …
With a 100% sightings record on our dedicated Tiger tours, we’re the right people to talk to about Tigers.
How about birds?
Our Asia tours go in search of South East Asia’s elusive rainforest birds, fabled Siberian species and remote high-altitude specialities of the Tien Shan and Himalayan mountains and much more.
Whats the accomodation like?
We stay in fine hotels, luxury jungle lodges and tented camps, but for some remote areas we make use of more basic government guesthouses and campsites.
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Asia HOLIDAYS
This holiday far exceeded my expectations and this was primarily due to the enthusiasm and incredible expert knowledge of the two trip leaders Chris and Osman. This holiday has personally changed our outlook on the future, something for which we are immensely grateful.
The planning & organisation of this trip by the local staff was exemplary. They were friendly, helpful, and a joy to be with.
All the hotels used were wonderful - comfortable, with good service. The hotel at Sigiriya, the Tea Factory and the Boulder Garden will all live in my memory! A really well balanced tour with plenty of variety - some fascinating sights and a lot of information on history and culture as well as an abundance of birds and other wildlife. The guides were excellent, the company was great - it does always help to have congenial travelling companions! There were some amazing high points - our own personal Leopard sighting as we left the lodge on our second morning at Yala and a wonderful close encounter with a Sloth Bear later the same day! One of the best holidays I have had - and I have had some good ones!
