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 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"

Naturetrek mammal watching tours

Many of our 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 and usually benefit from additional guiding by expert local naturalist guides. We have holidays to see an incredible range of the world’s mammals, such as Orang Utans, lemurs, bats, polar mammals, big and small cats, and mammals of the African savannah or the rainforest.

Here’s a selection of our mammal tours:

The holiday delivered a truly wonderful wildlife experience from start to finish. The sightings of the Jaguars, Giant River Otters, Tapirs, Giant Anteaters and Hyacinth Macaws will be etched in my memory forever! Marcos is an excellent guide, taking care of his clients throughout the trip. His knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Pantanal are exceptional. His amazing ability to spot and name the animals meant we saw so much. His organisation and management of the tour was faultless!

Just Tigers!

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip - it surpassed our expectations and offered us not only great Tiger sightings but a wonderful experience of Indian wildlife and birds. Would not hesitate to recommend Naturetrek to others. The opportunities to experience the diversity of wildlife, particularly at Kanha and Bharatpur, which was greatly enhanced by the knowledge and experience of the tour leaders. The accommodation at Tuli Tiger Resort and the Birders Inn - both attractive in their settings, clean and comfortable. The staff at Tuli in particular were all delightful and seemed to take a great pride in their work and thoroughly enjoy their employment. A group of 10 seemed ideal and we enjoyed our shared wildlife interests. The holiday was very well organised and all the expectations raised by your promotion material were more than lived up to in our experience of the trip. The information was also comprehensive, accurate and helpfully covered everything we needed to know.
The whole holiday was marvellous. Our guide Paulo was enthusiastic, well informed, and continually searching out new things for us to look at. The Flotel was brilliant. We saw jaguars every day we were there, watching them hunt and on one occasion seeing a kill. On another day we saw a failed hunt with capybaras plunging in the river, followed a couple of minutes later by a baby escaping into the water! Giant river otters were near the Flotel fishing and colourful birdlife everywhere! There was so much wildlife that at times we were surrounded by it! A wonderful wildlife experience!
