Wildlife Conservation Holidays
Like anyone passionate about wildlife, we at Naturetrek want to help conserve the world’s habitats and species for future generations to enjoy. Each year we team up with leading wildlife charities to offer tours that make a direct contribution to conservation, and we also aim to make our holidays carbon neutral.
Our conservation specialist recommends …
I’d recommend our 10-day holiday with International Animal Rescue (IAR), which includes a visit to the Bear Sanctuary in Agra. IAR has succeeded in ending the cruel practice of ‘dancing’ bears in India and our tour offers an opportunity to see the rehabilitated bears recovering and enjoying life again. - Maryanne Mills

Naturetrek & conservation
Statistics about the decline of some of the world’s most iconic species, such as Tigers and Orang Utans, make hard reading. We’re proud to offer you a chance to see these magnificent creatures and other endangered species while also making a contribution towards saving them.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Conservation HOLIDAYS
Hotels were comfortable. Good food, superb surroundings, very warm welcome. Both leaders knew every detail about the butterflies and were at pains to show good birds to those who were interested. Flexibility was necessary, but the sites chosen could hardly have been bettered. Vic Tucker’s knowledge of butterflies was mind-boggling. Andras Schmidt knew both butterflies and birds to an impressive extent. He was ably assisted by his wife, Ilona, and not-quite-7-year-old son, Richard, who caught two rare fritillaries for us. A word for our driver, Steve, who was much more than that: preparing lunch, helping people in and out of the coach, carrying luggage, and always smiling. This was a wonderful trip. My third holiday with Naturetrek - I certainly hope that it will not be the last.
The quality of the leaders of this trip was excellent, their specialist subject knowledge and general natural history grasp was very good indeed. They were both attentive of our needs at all times.
Rob Parker did an excellent job ... he really did work hard to give everyone what they had paid for. Phil Thompson was also very good and both were friendly and approachable.
