N & C America

North America offers comfortable wildlife watching, while Central America provides some more exotic Neotropical natural history experiences.

Wildlife Holidays in North & Central America

North America may lack the south’s faunal diversity, but it offers the comfort, security and sophistication that some travellers prefer, and some breathtaking scenery! From the prairies and the swamps of Florida to the frozen realm of the Polar Bear, Naturetrek’s North America holidays offer some impressive wildlife spectacles.

Our America specialist recommends...

I’d recommend ‘Trinidad & Tobago’. This tour starts with eight nights at the Asa Wright Centre where you can watch hummingbirds while sitting on the verandah, or visit the nearby Oilbird cave. This is followed by four nights on Tobago relaxing on idyllic beaches or (in April) watching Leatherback Turtles lay their eggs! - Paul Stanbury

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR N & C America HOLIDAYS

Canada: The West

I expected this trip to be very good and my expectations were surpassed ... My thanks to Naturetrek, in particular Paul and Chris for a trip of a lifetime.
The trip was excellent - 245 bird species, 10 mammals and 11 reptiles. This was principally down to our guide Alex (Alexis) who was superb. He is an excellent birder - sightings, sounds and general identification. He combined these exceptional skills with a gentle and very pleasant character and took care to be inclusive of all the group members. The Canopy Tower is comfortable and clean, the food was superb and the birding from the tower was excellent. We were provided with tea, coffee and nibbles at 6am on the balcony and watched as the sun rose, before breakfast at 7.30am.
Canopy Tower was a delightful idea. The living area on the third floor was especially well done and the bedroom comfortable. The views from the roof were spectacular. Birding of passing migrants was excellent. Excellent management, excellent in field snacks, other food good. Service efficient. Panama is obviously a great birding country.
