Big Cats

We offer a wide range of big cat tours

Big Cat Holidays

Big cats are among the world’s most admired and sought-after mammals, and Naturetrek has the broadest and most comprehensive range of ‘big cat holidays’. We offer tours 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 and Mongolia, 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 Big Cat Specialist Recommends

“Naturetrek has been instrumental in designing, researching and pioneering many of the big cat (and smaller cat!) tours on the market. 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. Our 'South Africa – Just Cats!' holiday offers a chance to see a wide variety of cats close to in stunning scenery.”

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Big Cats HOLIDAYS

A.F.
Warwickshire
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.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Kike was an excellent guide being extremely knowledgeable about all flora and fauna and also very calm when managing issues within the group. He really went beyond the call of duty to ensure everything ran well and we all had a marvellous time. The time spent at the flotel (the Jaguar suites are a real luxury) and out on the river searching for wildlife was fantastic. We had 10 Jaguar spots of 6 different cats with some quality viewings including a female hunting Caiman and a confrontation between a male and female and another male - amazing.

Just Tigers!

The holiday was absolutely wonderful - the leaders so helpful and knowledgeable, the hotels excellent, the organisation faultless. Actually, I shouldn’t describe it as a holiday, it was an adventure and everyone should have one!
