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.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Having filled in the questionnaire relating to the Just Jaguars trip, I would like to add my own personal thoughts on the trip. Having travelled with a number of companies over the years, Naturetrek stands well above all others. Its success is brought about by a number of factors, past and present research into status of the group of mammals, birds or other animals that are being quested. This is coupled with a great depth of knowledge of the countries being visited. Above all is the dedication of the staff employed to engage with the clients to bring about the fulfillment of the purpose of the trip. Naturetrek takes all of the above criteria and comes up with the results. Accommodation was good and in the right areas, local staff were fully versed with the wildlife of their areas and made a large contribution to the success of the trip. One cannot speak too highly of the naturalist tour leader, Marcos Felix. His knowledge of the whole area, its birds, mammals, trees, plants etc. ensured a continuous flow of information over a wide range of subjects.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Excellent leader and good group size. Holiday did exactly what it said on the tin and delivered everything that I hoped it would. Seeing Jaguars/Giant River Otters and all the other fabulous wildlife of the pantanal and sharing time with them was amazing and a true privilege. I just wish the holiday could have been longer.
