Wildlife safari tours

Take a walk on the wild side and enjoy close encounters with some of the world’s most incredible creatures, be it tracking tigers in India, spotting mountain gorilla in Uganda, bathing elephants in Sri Lanka or cuddling giant pandas in China.

For the classic wildlife holiday, it's hard to look beyond the many national parks of Africa. Brimming with an abundance of wildlife in their natural habitat, roaming completely free, Africa is also home to the famous Big 5.

We have a number of special wildlife itineraries, where most of your trip is based around spotting wildlife. On other trips, there's opportunity to spend time in national parks as well as classical touring around each country's main sites.

Tiger spotting | Ranthambhore National Park | India

The best of African wildlife

Herd of Elephants | Africa Safaris | Africa

African Elephant

One of the big 5, there's an absolute abundance of elephants in Africa. Chobe National Park in Botswana has one of the greatest concentrations and our top pick.

Leopard in a tree | African Safaris | Africa

Leopard

Spotting leopard is rare, but if you're not lucky enough to see one, it's great fun hearing of a sighting close by and focussing your binoculars. We recommend Kruger in South Africa and Samburu in Kenya.

Hippo | African Safaris | Africa

Hippos!

A largely herbivorous mammal, hippos might seem cute and amusing, but they are pretty aggressive! You'll always find them by water bodies and Lake Naivasha in Kenya is a good spot to see them.

Gorillas | Uganda | Africa

Mountain Gorillas

Get up close with the gentle giants of these jungle in their natural habitat in Uganda. We have a number of trips where you go trekking in search of the mountain gorilla.

Lions in Addo | South Africa | Africa

Lions

Ironically, the King of the Jungle lives out in the open African plains. Out on our overland safaris, feel the excitement of hearing the far off roar of the this mighty African cat at night.

Running Cheetah | African Safaris | Africa

Cheetah

Sprinting in short bursts at over 100 km per hour, the impressive speed of the Cheetah sets it apart from all other big cats. The open grasslands of the Tanzania's Serengeti and Kenya's Masai Mara are great for sightings.

White Rhino | African Safaris | Africa

Black Rhino

Sadly, the Black Rhino is critically endangered and sightings are not common. Good chances to spot them come at Hluhluhwe Umfolozi National Park in South Africa and Matobo National Park in Zimbabwe.

The Migration | Kenya & Tanzania | Africa

Wildebeast

For something truly spectacular, time your visit to Africa around the Great Migration, where thousands upon thousands of wildebeest migrate across the Serengeti and Masai Mara.

Zebras | African Safaris | Africa

Zebra

Few things are more recognisable than the black and white stripes of the Zebra and you'll see large concentrations in the Masai Mara in Kenya, typically alongside lots of Wildebeest.

Giraffe Family | African Safaris | Africa

Giraffe

Possibly the most likeable of all African animals, you're bound to see lots of giraffe lazily munching the leaves off tree tops on most of safari's in Africa, with Etosha in Namibia being top of the list.

Flamingos in Lake Nakuru | Kenya | Africa

Flamingos

It's a special moment seeing a flamboyance of flamingos with their pink shimmering reflections at the water's edge and it's hard to see past Lake Nakuru in Kenya as a top spot to do so.

Oryx | Namibia | Africa

Oryx

Also found in the Arabian peninsula, the oryx is found in most of Africa's arid regions and the large desert expanses in Namibia in Southern Africa and are great spot for sightings.

Go wild in Africa
Overland & Lodge Safaris

Go in search of the Big Five on one of our overland or lodge safaris to some of Africa's finest wildlife reserves. Drive across the open plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara, visit the floodlit watering holes of Etosha National Park, scour the shrub land in Kruger National Park or trek through dense jungle in search of the mighty mountain gorilla in Uganda.
