Wildlife

When you think of Wildlife, it is only natural for your mind to travel to the African savannah, but there are destinations all over the world where watching wildlife is just as exciting.

Wildlife travel is an increasingly popular choice for travel, with wildlife holidays now even overtaking the traditional beach holiday in terms of popularity. Of course, safaris aren’t the only way to enjoy wildlife on holiday and when it comes to planning a wildlife travel experience there are so many amazing destinations to choose from that it can be difficult to know where to start.

Alongside the 'big five', we can talk you through the best way to experience safaris as diverse as spotting tigers in the beautiful national parks of Central India, bird-watching in the Bushveld of South Africa, or searching for the elusive jaguar in Brazil's Pantanal.
