Big Cats

We offer a wide range of big cat tours

Big Cat Holidays

Big cats are among the world’s most admired and sought-after mammals, and Naturetrek has the broadest and most comprehensive range of ‘big cat holidays’. We offer tours to watch all of the world’s most iconic cat species including: Tigers in India and Nepal, Jaguars in the Pantanal, Pumas in Chile and Snow Leopards in India and Mongolia, as well as safaris to see a superb variety of Africa’s cats such as Lions, Cheetah and Leopards. You can also look for Asiatic Lions in India, and Leopards in Sri Lanka on our tours. We do not neglect the smaller species of cat and we also offer dedicated short breaks which go in search of Wildcat and Iberian Lynx.

Our Big Cat Specialist Recommends

“Naturetrek has been instrumental in designing, researching and pioneering many of the big cat (and smaller cat!) tours on the market. Our dedicated Tiger-watching tours have an unparalleled 100% success record with sightings, while if you want a holiday dedicated to looking for Jaguars, you can’t do any better than our 'Brazil – Just Jaguars!' tour. Our 'South Africa – Just Cats!' holiday offers a chance to see a wide variety of cats close to in stunning scenery.”

Marcos was everything a leader-cum-naturalist should be. The group was a delightful, friendly one, and the Jaguars seen were magnificent and, as a non-birder, I learnt a lot. Fantastic time!

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

A relatively small group of like-minded travellers and nature enthusiasts, who all got on well with each other, led by two excellent tour managers who ensured that we saw as much as possible of the incredible wildlife the Pantanal has to offer. Many thanks to Fiorella and Nick. Not as big a list of fauna as say the Amazon, but the sheer numbers of birds and commoner mammals/reptiles was staggering at times.

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.
