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

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Our guide was Paulo Cezar Ribeiro, he was great. His bird knowledge was brilliant and he definitely knew how to anticipate the Jaguars's next move. He also ensured that everyone saw what we were looking at before moving on. I had been to the Pantanal 10 years ago and missed out on Jaguar so when I found your trip, Just Jaguars with 100% succes for each trip, I had to choose Naturetrek and i wasn't disappointed. I went just for the Jaguars and everything else was a bonus. Tapir in daylight, Lesser Anteater and Brazilian Porcupine plus 2 yellow Anaconda. Six different Jaguars on 6 of the 8 boat trips. The first sightings were in deep cover but nevertheless, I managed to get photographs. The best was saved until the last boat trip when our guide Paulo found us a pair, male and female. These two were out in the open, they then began moving down the river bank where our guide anticipated they would re-appear. They mated in the open in full view - so yes, it was exactly what I was looking for and more.
