Bargain Mammal Watching
Naturetrek offers a wide selection of long-haul wildlife holidays primarily focusing on mammals. These tours offer an intensive mammal-centred focus, outstanding value for money and top quality sightings. They are led by at least one expert local English-speaking naturalist, and visit countries in Africa, Asia, South and Central America and more.
Our mammal specialist recommends...
I’d recommend ‘Ecuador – Amazonian Mammals’ for a good introduction to South America’s rainforest mammals. In Africa, it’s hard to beat our ‘Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park’ holiday for its combination of Leopards, other ‘big game’ and first-class accommodation! In Asia, try ‘India – Bandhavgarh National Park’ for Tigers and other Indian mammals.” - Paul Stanbury

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Bargain Mammals HOLIDAYS
On behalf of all the guys and myself, Id just like to tell you how much we enjoyed and how successful our recent trip was. It was truly great and the second week enjoyed at Napo was fantastic. What a great place and were glad to have stayed there. The total bird list for the first week was just about 300 or so. We all missed a few species of course, the more so for those of us with older eyes and slower reactions. My personal tally was about 285, final details yet to be worked on, and I was very pleased with that. I dont know yet what the total for the second week at Napo is, but I understand from a quick tally by our guide, that it was already approaching 200, so a total of close to 500 seems about in order. Full marks to our guides Alejandro Solano from Neblina Forest, and Andres Vasquez and Jorge Rivadeneira at Napo. They were amazing and how they pick up the birds was beyond us. Their knowledge of the calls and bird-songs was truly encyclopaedic. Also, all the ground arrangements worked impeccably. Id certainly recommend this trip to anyone.
This was my first wildlife holiday and it turned out to be excellent. Bunty was excellent. His knowledge and friendly disposition helped make this trip. Out of 9 game drives we saw tigers on 7, and on 4 of those we saw more than one, and I had two elephant rides tracking the tigers. It was fantastic. I enjoy wildlife photography and the pictures I managed to take I’m pleased with – from the tigers through to black kites in Delhi. I would recommend you to my friends!
Som, our Nepalese guide, is excellent. He really knows his stuff and he helped to give a friendly and informal atmosphere to our group.
