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
The holiday truly delivered a diverse range of interesting attractions/activities. The leaders were truly excellent as guides and trip organisers. Any problem was dealt with straight away. The driver of our coach was similarly excellent.
We saw three Tigers, two really close and one with just our jeep. Also hundreds of birds, most of which were new to us; learned a lot about Indian history, trees and plants and had some great food. Our tour leader, Durgesh, was a fascinating source of information and ensured that we were well looked after. We were very impressed by the details provided beforehand, the support from our tour leader and we had a great time. Well worth the money. Thank you for a great holiday.
Our trip was made easy and exciting by our guide, Durgesh Singh. He is polite, helpful and calm, with a fine sense of humour. Added to this, he is an excellent naturalist with comprehensive knowledge of the local wildlife and eagle eyes. He could also answer our questions on local customs. And we saw TIGER!! Several with excellent views. There is no other animal on the planet with such majestic presence.
