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 Botswana’s Desert & Delta for combining stunning scenery and wildlife. Closer to home, short breaks to Spain in search of Wolves and Iberian Lynx are hard to beat. We offer a tour to Uganda which includes a chance to see Mountain Gorillas. And India, along with Tigers, has a superb variety of mammals"

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Mammals HOLIDAYS
Overall an excellent trip. So far, the best area visited for wildlife, with excellent viewing from the open-sided trucks and especially the boats in the 'Jaguar Zone'. Marcos was one of the best local guides we have had. Excellent in the field and a clear communicator - good at sharing his knowledge with his group, and full of enthusiasm. The Pantanal is superb for getting involved in the day to day lives of the animals and birds and Naturetrek's itinerary and guides ensured we saw just about everything on offer.
This was an excellent trip much enjoyed by us both. The highlight obviously being our wonderful prolonged sightings of Jaguar which far exceeded our expectations.
We have just returned from this tour with Naturetrek. It was quite simply one of the best wildlife experiences imaginable. We saw 7 individual Jaguars in a total of about 14 sightings. Our guide was Marcos Felix who could not have been better. He worked incredibly hard to ensure we saw the maximum amount of wildlife - and it is not always easy in the thick undergrowth. His spotting of animals and birds at long range was exceptional. He had an uncanny ability to anticipate where Jaguars in particular were going to turn up and even managed to produce a small video of the tour by working late at night. In some 10 years of wildlife photography trips this has to rank as one of the best ever and this was in many ways because of Marcos's hard work and expertise.
