Not many experiences rival the thrill of seeing life in the raw. From humbling encounters with wild mountain gorillas as they tend their young, mirroring our own lives in so many ways, in the forests of Uganda and Rwanda. The sight of predator and prey bound together in the constant struggle for survival on the plains of the Masaai Mara. Witnessing unique behaviours and marvelling at the sheer unbridled diversity of the Amazonian rain forest. A wildlife holiday is at once exhilarating and poignant; a journey that will open your eyes, warm your heart and create memories to last a lifetime.
It’s easy to see why hanging out with great apes in the wild snags the top spot on many a bucket list. Their eyes a mirror to a not-so-distant past, their gestures and relationships so like our own. Perhaps you dream of trekking through lush forest to see mountain gorillas in Rwanda? Or visiting those charismatic redheads, the orangutans of Borneo? Powerful and moving, a primate safari is one of the most rewarding trips you’ll ever take in your life.
Asia's stunningly diverse landscape is ideal for an equally impressive range of animals. Visit the dragons of Komodo National Park or head to Minneriya National Park where 300 elephants congregate every September - October to graze, drink, bathe, play and even find mates. Delve into the lush jungles on the Cardamom Mountains where wild Indochinese tigers, clouded leopards, Asiatic black bears and Malayan sun bears all roam free. Or, if you wish to see something truly spectacular, head to Taman Negara National Park where the Great Hornbill and Spectaculed Langur reside.
The Galapagos Islands are renowned for wildlife; it is a place where giant tortoises roam free and the blue-footed boobies preen themselves atop jagged rocks. But there is oh so much more to South America than this: there's Costa Rica where colourful birds and chattering monkeys dart through lush jungle, or Brazil's Pantanal which is one of the best places to see jaguars in action. Travelling up the mighty Amazon River is a real treat as it is home to all manner of unique species, including the elusive river dolphins which get pinker the more excited they are!
Welcome to the jungle; one of the world’s last truly wild frontiers. From hot and humid rainforests to cooler mountain climes, they’re staggeringly diverse ecosystems alive with wildlife, delicate orchids, jewel-bright birds, dazzling butterflies the size of your hand, and hidden tribes speaking seldom heard languages. The setting of myriad myths and legends, the jungle looms large in our imaginations. It’s the perfect backdrop for an epic adventure.
