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
Driving into the Pantanal is like entering a different world. Three things in particular account for the outstanding success of this tour. The location of the eco-lodges which meant we were immersed in the wildlife from the first night to the last morning. Our guide, Marcos Felix, whose enthusiasm, knowledge and sharp eye enabled us to see so many unusual mammals and dazzling birds. And thirdly, luck. The Flotel brought us close to the main object of our trip, the Jaguar. Seven different Jaguar - was that awesome? We watched them walk, hunt, swim, play (mother with two cubs) or just return our stare. We even heard the mating roar! The giant otters did their best to compete, chomping on their catch, socialising, in family groups, on river and bank and swimming in formation on the 'war path' at full throttle. Naturetrek could not have improved the quality of this holiday.
We felt that this was an incredible holiday. The wildlife seen was beyond our expectations, we had tiger sightings virtually every trip! We would also like to comment that our leader Nick (Acheson) was exceptional. His knowledge of all wildlife seen was amazing, plus his knowledge of Indian life and culture added to the holiday.
The Jaguars were extremely obliging! This was an excellent holiday which I would thoroughly recommend.
