Wildlife & safaris

The call of the wild. It can show up as a nagging urge to go off grid, far from technology and the mayhem of modern day life. Or it may be the decision to finally turn that lifelong dream to go on safari into a reality; to see the Big 5 in the flesh, sit beneath vast star-laden skies, to rise with the sun and fall asleep to the sounds of the bush.

For wildlife lovers, nothing surpasses close encounters of the furred or feathered kind. The chance to experience life in all of its jaw-dropping, heart-pounding and tear-jerking glory. A wildlife vacation or safari is the perfect way to indulge your wanderlust, help protect the last untamed places on Earth, and inspire the next generation of wildlife ambassadors.

From horseback, game vehicle, on foot or by boat, there are many ways to reconnect with nature whether you’re exploring the ancient landscape of the Galapagos Islands, canoeing along the Amazon, on a tiger safari in India or trekking mountain gorillas in Uganda.

Jungles

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.

Indian tiger safaris

Home to over half the world’s population of tigers, India remains one of the best places to see this majestic big cat in the wild. Head deep into the jungle in search of the Bengal tiger, a solitary, silent hunter of near mythical status, on an Indian tiger safari that oozes romance and adrenaline in equal measures.

Gorillas & orangutans

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.
