Wildlife holidays

Step into the wilderness with us

A wildlife holiday puts you right in the heart of Mother Nature, and safari holidays are undoubtedly the king of the jungle when it comes to this type of break. Feel the earth tremble beneath your feet in Tanzania as the Great Annual Migration stampedes across the Serengeti. Or, hear your heartbeat rush through your ears as you track Africa's Big Five with bated breath.

Our wildlife holidays go well beyond safaris. Our back-to-nature trips cover every corner of the globe. Head to Mexico’s Playa Del Carmen for example, and marine life at Xcaret eco-archaeological park. Swim with stingrays, sharks, and dolphins, snorkel over kaleidoscopic coral reefs and glide through the Mayan jungle on an underground river.

Or, fly to Goa, and you’ll have a clutch of fascinating wildlife sanctuaries on your doorstep. Nestled in the foothills of the Western Ghats, the Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary is a prime example. A haven for animals including the gaur – or Indian Bison, Goa’s state animal – it’s so compact you can be back by the pool on the very same day. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Nature of Borneo tour includes a visit to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, where between 60 and 80 orphaned orangutans roam free. Our safari holidays come highly recommended, too – try tracking the Big Five in Africa for animal encounters you’ll never forget.

You can see elephants in a variety of different habitats like Botswana, Kenya, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India. A game drive is a great way to see these incredible creatures, and a visit to an elephant sanctuary is a must. Plus, at some resorts such as Anantara's Golden Triangle Resort in Thailand they’ll simply roam free outside your hotel window.
