Big Cats Holidays

We offer a number of specially designed big cat tours which will provide you with unique opportunities to observe these charismatic mammals.

Big Cat Tours

Big cats are among the world’s most admired and most sought-after mammals, and Naturetrek has the broadest and most comprehensive range of holidays in search of big cats. We offer holidays to watch all of the world’s most iconic cat species including: Tigers in India and Nepal, Jaguars in the Pantanal, Pumas in Chile and Snow Leopards in India, as well as safaris to see a superb variety of Africa’s cats such as Lions, Cheetah and Leopards. You can also look for Asiatic Lions in India, and Leopards in Sri Lanka on our tours. We do not neglect the smaller species of cat and we also offer dedicated short breaks which go in search of Wildcat and Iberian Lynx.

Our dedicated Tiger watching tours have an unparalleled 100% success record with sightings, while if you want a holiday dedicated to looking for Jaguars, you can’t do any better than our ‘Brazil – Just Jaguars!’ tour.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Big Cats Holidays HOLIDAYS

South Africa - Just Cats!

This was a truly superb holiday, we just didn’t want to leave! The local guides (Leon and Rob) were just excellent, the wildlife viewing was exceptional (certainly in Sabi sands – at least one good leopard sighting every day!) and the lodges, particularly Nkoro, were fantastic. We’re thinking seriously about going back – and soon!! Thank you to Naturetrek.

Chile - Just Pumas!

The trip more than lived up to our expectations. We saw 15 different Pumas & they were very active too! We saw them eating kills, hunting & playing. Several of our encounters were very close and allowed us to get some superb shots! Our guide Sebastian & tracker Jorge worked well together, always respecting the Puma's well being and giving them space to move where they wanted to go, which resulted in natural & relaxed looking images of these wonderful cats.
Paulo Ribeiro was a knowledgeable and informative leader with a great personality. Tour leader was first class, transfers worked well, top notch wildlife sightings.
