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 Chiles Blue Whales & Pumas for combining stunning scenery and wildlife. Closer to home, short breaks to Spain in search of Wolves and Iberian Lynx are hard to beat. For those seeking adventure, Africa holds many possibilities, including a chance to watch Mountain Gorillas. And India, along with Tigers, has a superb variety of mammals. - Paul Stanbury

Brilliant holiday! I thoroughly enjoyed every day. Brilliant leaders, accommodation, sites and lunches; everything was excellent. The leaders were very friendly. I had a holiday I will never forget. I saw everything the itinerary promised and more.
Staying on the Flotel giving ready access to Jaguar sightings was definitely the highlight. Talks given by the researcher on the Flotel were excellent. I liked the open safari vehicles and the boats used from both the Flotel and Southwild. Jaguar sightings were so far over and above my expectations!!! Having attempted to see them in Guyanaa few years ago and failed, I was anxious beforehand that we wouldn't see them but I needn't have worried! Great to see the Giant Anteater and Giant River Otters as well.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Everything was perfect. Fiorella our Peruvian guide was superb. As far as Jaguars are concerned, two in two days then three on the last day - making a total of five. How some of them were spotted is bewildering as I am sure nobody could have spotted at least three without some sort of infrared binoculars. Pouso Alegre was also excellent with lots of birds (Blue Hyacinth Macaws), Deer, Caiman, Tapir etc. Bonus of two Ocelots along with Marmosets, Capybaras etc. Giant River Otters spotted at Flotel. Overall a great experience.
