Wildlife holidays in Asia
The variety of landscapes, peoples, cultures and wildlife to be found in Asia is quite remarkable. We have an intimate knowledge of this incredibly diverse continent and an amazing network of local contacts. Our holidays focus on iconic species like Tigers as well as more subtle delights such as Himalayan flora.
Our Asia specialist recommends..
"I’d recommend our ‘Splendours of Nepal’ holiday for an excellent introduction to the Himalaya. For Tigers, ‘Tiger Direct!’ maximises wildlife sightings and minimises travelling time. Our ‘Brahmaputra Cruise’ or ‘Snow Leopard Quest’ both offer a very different Indian experience, plus we have a good choice of bargain and family tours." - David Mills
What can I see?
Seeing Asian wildlife presents more of a challenge, in terms of patience and field skills, than traditional African style safaris. Whether you want to look for rainforest birds on foot or undertake a Himalayan trek, here’s a taste of Asia’s special wildlife experiences:
- Tigers – 100% sightings record on ‘Just Tigers!’ & ‘Tiger Direct!’ tours
- The Himalaya – Nepal, China & Bhutan
- Tropical rainforests of Borneo, Thailand & Malaysia
- Flowers, plus oak & rhododendron forests of the temperate Himalayan foothills
- Deserts, steppes & Tulip meadows of Kazakhstan
Asia’s ‘big game’
Tigers, Leopards, Snow Leopards, Asiatic Lions, Asian Elephants, Gaur (Asian Bison), Indian One-horned Rhinoceros, and Brown, Black and Sloth Bears are all seen on our holidays.
I really want to see Tigers …
With a 100% sightings record on our dedicated Tiger tours, we’re the right people to talk to about Tigers.
How about birds?
Our Asia tours go in search of South East Asia’s elusive rainforest birds, fabled Siberian species and remote high-altitude specialities of the Tien Shan and Himalayan mountains and much more.
Whats the accomodation like?
We stay in fine hotels, luxury jungle lodges and tented camps, but for some remote areas we make use of more basic government guesthouses and campsites.
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Asia HOLIDAYS
What a tour!!! Thanks so much. Chris Kehoe, the best, fantastic guy, great leader. Osman, brilliant, wonderful person. Accommodation, food, itinerary, ground agents, organisation, flights, birds, mammals, flora, all of the highest quality. It made for the best trip we have ever had the pleasure of participating in with Naturetrek. Chris is the ultimate professional and we look forward to travelling with him again in the future.
Both Nick and Osman made a great effort to see that on the days where it would have been difficult for me to take part I was helped by Osman, often on a one to one basis, to be able to cover as much as was possible...it made my holiday a very pleasing experience.
The on the ground organization was excellent, with some great attention to detail (hot water bottles at high altitude!). I would like to congratulate Naturetrek on the overall service in putting this trip together. I had exact requirements for a custom made extension to be arranged at short notice, which you and your local agents achieved with little fuss.
