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

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Mammals HOLIDAYS
Paulo was great, he was always polite and friendly, professional and hard working, really trying hard to find any species and give us the best experience on the trip. A great leader to have.
I would like to commend our guide, Marcos Felix. We have had many guides over the years and this man rates in the top three. Diligent and hard-working, he never stopped pointing out birds and mammals, although we had seen them before, which was good for getting another photo shot. His knowledge of all things natural is excellent. And yet he is always expanding his knowledge. His PowerPoint presentations were very interesting and variable. His command of English is very good but he is still wanting to improve by asking us different ways of expressing things. Look after this man - he is a credit to Naturetrek. All in all, a fantastic holiday which far exceeded my expectations with nine sightings of five different jaguars plus 160+ bird species and numerous mammals, reptile and butterfly sightings.
We were very fortunate in having Dave Luck as the local agent. He was 1st class.
