Our expert staff in the office have been reflecting on their wildlife highlights of 2018 – from swimming with Whale Sharks in the Maldives to seeing Steller's Sea Eagles in Japan. 2018 was a busy year for us all and we look forward to sharing more wonderful wildlife adventures with you in 2019! 

We are delighted to launch three brand new wildlife photography holidays for 2019 to Madagascar, Namibia and Mull, all led by Naturetrek tour leader, and professional landscape and wildlife photographer, Robert Harvey.

It was with great sadness that we learnt recently of the death of conservationist and Naturetrek tour leader, Roy Taylor.

This week’s episode of Dynasties, the remarkable new TV series narrated by Sir David Attenborough, showed us that Tigers are very different creatures to the Lions of the plains. The Lion strikes fear in plain sight; go into Tiger country and the fear is creeping, lurking, hidden behind dense vegetation, yet all pervasive. You could almost feel the restless dread in the close-up snorts of the Chital deer, the Tiger’s most frequent meal.
