Mammal Watching Holidays
Many of the world’s mammals are instantly recognisable to us. Animals such as lions, Tigers, elephants and bears capture our imaginations from childhood. Fulfilling what is for many people a lifelong dream of seeing their ‘wish list’ species in the wild is something we take great pleasure and pride in doing.
Our mammal specialist recommends …
I would recommend Chiles Blue Whales & Pumas for combining stunning scenery and wildlife. Closer to home, short breaks to Spain in search of Wolves and Iberian Lynx are hard to beat. For those seeking adventure, Africa holds many possibilities, including a chance to watch Mountain Gorillas. And India, along with Tigers, has a superb variety of mammals. - Paul Stanbury

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Mammals HOLIDAYS
As our prinicpal focus was Jaguars, Dan advised us to take the ‘Just Jaguars’ tour and add on the Iguazu Falls rather than the tour which included both but had a prime focus of birds and did not stay at the Flotel. It was such sound advice as our multiple sightings of 8 different Jaguars whilst on the river, far surpassed our expectations and we were still able to enjoy the amazing avian life. We felt that the leadership of Marcos, ably assisted by drivers and boatmen, were exceptional and contributed greatly to our total enjoyment. He was able to be inclusive to the varied knowledge and needs of all members of the group.
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.
Mario is a superb guide - fully knowledgeable but a real people person - look after him! Seeing one jaguar was special but to see two was incredible, we were blessed. It was just us in the middle of nowhere drifting up the river when they appeared, swimming in front of us - an unsurpassable wildlife experience. Thanks to Naturetrek, Mario and our lucky stars!
