Our range of wildlife holidays offering you the opportunity to see the world’s most sought after mammals can’t be beaten.

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.

Here’s a selection of our mammal tours:

  • India’s Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve

A. & B.B.

This was without doubt our best holiday ever! A truly wonderful experience, thanks to all concerned.

Just Tigers!

Raghu was super - very keen and knowledgeable on all animals, plants and butterflies. He answered all my questions and looked after me very well. His sense of humour was great and we had many laughs and happy times with Raghu – he’s the tops! For Harry, we were his first party and I thought he coped extremely well and his knowledge, again, was excellent. He is a very charming person and should do very well at the guide job. Both guides had extreme patience and a good sense of humour. They looked after me 100%. I shall be recommending Naturetrek wherever possible. Thank you at the office for your help and guidance.
Our view is that the balance of the itinerary is just about right. Pousso is fairly basic but gives a good starter for this sort of trip and the length of time there is enough. The Flotel is very good and probably better all round than we expected, particularly the accommodation and food. The sightings of birds and mammals probably could not have been bettered...particularly the Ocelot. Marcos Felix was excellent in all respects. The most important aspect of this type of holiday is having a tour leader/guide in whom you have complete trust in all respects. Marcos Felix satisfies that criteria very well. Marcos had an incredible knowledge and insight on all birds and mammals which he shared with us. It would have been much less of an experience without him.
