Our range of wildlife holidays offering you the opportunity to see the world’s most sought after mammals can’t be beaten.

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 Botswana’s Desert & Delta for combining stunning scenery and wildlife. Closer to home, short breaks to Spain in search of Wolves and Iberian Lynx are hard to beat. We offer a tour to Uganda which includes a chance to see Mountain Gorillas. And India, along with Tigers, has a superb variety of mammals"

Naturetrek mammal watching tours

Many of our tours have a primary focus on mammals and we offer the widest choices of mammal-watching holidays across the globe, from the Arctic to the tropics. Our holidays are guided by at least one professional naturalist tour leader and usually benefit from additional guiding by expert local naturalist guides. We have holidays to see an incredible range of the world’s mammals, such as Orang Utans, lemurs, bats, polar mammals, big and small cats, and mammals of the African savannah or the rainforest.

Here’s a selection of our mammal tours:

I would travel again with Naturetrek as often as possible. This trip fulfilled and exceeded everything that we have come to expect of a Naturetrek holiday. It was tough camping for the first time, but worth every moment of excitement (and a little trepidation). Wilderness Safaris, Dave Luck and all his team are to be congratulated and highly recommended.
I would like to commend our guide, Marcos Felix. We have had many guides over the years and this man rates in the top three. Diligent and hard-working, he never stopped pointing out birds and mammals, although we had seen them before, which was good for getting another photo shot. His knowledge of all things natural is excellent. And yet he is always expanding his knowledge. His PowerPoint presentations were very interesting and variable. His command of English is very good but he is still wanting to improve by asking us different ways of expressing things. Look after this man - he is a credit to Naturetrek. All in all, a fantastic holiday which far exceeded my expectations with nine sightings of five different jaguars plus 160+ bird species and numerous mammals, reptile and butterfly sightings.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

This was an excellent trip much enjoyed by us both. The highlight obviously being our wonderful prolonged sightings of Jaguar which far exceeded our expectations.
