Big Cats Holidays

We offer a number of specially designed big cat tours which will provide you with unique opportunities to observe these charismatic mammals.

Big Cat Tours

Big cats are among the world’s most admired and most sought-after mammals, and Naturetrek has the broadest and most comprehensive range of holidays in search of big cats. We offer holidays 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, 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 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.

Mr and Mrs B
Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Tour leader was excellent. Flotel suite and staff were excellent. Jaguar, Otter and bird viewing were excellent. Southwild Pantanal lodge room, restaurant, food, river trip, local guides and other staff were all very good. Walk at Alegra was excellent. Timetable was excellent.

India - Tiger Direct!

Game drives wonderful - very exciting. Saw Tiger, Leopard, tracked Tiger, saw Sloth Bear and much more. Indie (guide) was great. All the drivers and guides were enthusiastic. Super, super holiday. Many thanks to Indie for his care and experience.
Firstly I have to say that although I have enjoyed all of the tours that I have taken with Naturetrek, the 'Just Jaguars' tour exceeded all my expectations due to the excellent sightings, the varierty of accommodation, my fellow travellers, but mainly because of the enthusiasm and determination of our guide Paulo to find us all we had hoped to see and much, much more, he really did give us 110%, willingly and happily. I know that myself and the rest of the group really appreciated his efforts and I hope many more of your clients will have the benefit of his guiding. All in all a very fulfilling, interesting and delightful trip, many thanks.
