Bargain Mammals

These action-packed, long-haul mammal holidays are all led by an expert local naturalist and offer excellent value for money.

Bargain Mammal Watching

Naturetrek offers a wide selection of long-haul wildlife holidays primarily focusing on mammals. These tours offer an intensive mammal-centred focus, outstanding value for money and top quality sightings. They are led by at least one expert local English-speaking naturalist, and visit countries in Africa, Asia, South and Central America and more.

Our mammal specialist recommends...

I’d recommend ‘Ecuador – Amazonian Mammals’ for a good introduction to South America’s rainforest mammals. In Africa, it’s hard to beat our ‘Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park’ holiday for its combination of Leopards, other ‘big game’ and first-class accommodation! In Asia, try ‘India – Bandhavgarh National Park’ for Tigers and other Indian mammals.” - Paul Stanbury

A fascinating and memorable experience that exceeded all our expectations. The tour leader was Harish Sharma, what a gem you have there! He was professional, polite and pleasant throughout our whole time with him. What a great knowledge he has, mammals, reptiles, bird life, Indian history, mythology, he could speak freely on all these and we were captivated by him. A great asset and credit to the Naturetrek company. On occasions he was assertive when he needed to be, with local guides, drivers and porters, always having our best interests in mind, and influencing them to ensure we as the guests got the best out of it. Our main objective for the trip was to view the magnificent tiger in its natural surroundings, and that was achieved - in fact we had 7 sightings on 3 different drives - indeed on one occasion we were the only vehicle to view, and were only about thirty metres from the tiger on a path before it "strolled" into the forest. We were also lucky enough to see the leopard and sloth bear as well as the "usual" Samber, Spotted Deer, Wild Boar, bison, monkeys and all the different bird life. The trip to Agra was also very memorable, the guide Tarun was very knowledgeable and informative for the whole time he was with us, we learnt a great deal about the Taj Mahal, Baby Taj and Agra Fort - another great day.

The hotels/tents were fantastic, when someone says tent you think of getting on all fours and crawling in - these were like bungalows and the view from all tents and dining tent, as well as the hotel where we stayed at Elsemere. Words can't describe the views, and the birds were fantastic. Not to forget the 3 drivers/guides, their knowledge was amazing, and they helped me so much as everyone else who needed it.
The trip was absolutely fabulous! I feel very privileged to have been able to spend some time at Napo Wildlife Centre, its a special place. Everything about it is very organised, exciting, and peaceful. We saw 8 monkey species, the Howlers at close quarters from the top of the canopy tower, lots of wonderful birds of course, and as we were in the canoes leaving for Quito on Tuesday, the Giant Otters put on a show for us, we were so lucky! All the transfers went according to plan, the hotel in Quito was fine, and we had a super day in the cloud forest with the hummingbirds. The guides were all excellent. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
