Our Favourite Wildlife Experiences
Your travel bucketlist isn’t complete without taking in some of the world’s most unique wildlife experiences. From a wildlife safari in central India to Canada’s Yukon wilderness; gorilla trekking in Uganda to the Galapagos Islands, the most unforgettable journeys are the ones that take you off the beaten track to discover the natural wonders of a country that may not be found anywhere else.
Head to Canada’s Last Frontier
The Yukon Territory is one of the world’s last great frontiers. The old gold rush towns like Dawson City and Skagway are the gateway to one of nature’s greatest phenomenon’s – the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights – and while this draws most visitors to the region, the wildlife viewing in the Yukon is spectacular. Up here there’s the chance to get close to the more well-known Canadian wildlife including polar bears, grizzly bears, caribou and moose along with bald eagles, the Arctic fox and more.
Experience the stunning Yukon Territory on our Yukon’s Wilderness
journey. Explore historical sites, view amazing wildlife and discover some of the best fishing in Canada.
Go on Safari in Central India
India is one of the lesser known destinations for wildlife viewing but still offers the chance to get up close to the Royal Bengal tiger, leopards, the sloth bear, the barasingha and Indian wild dog. The wildlife sanctuaries and reserves located in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in central India attract thousands of wildlife enthusiasts each year, all searching for those rare and endemic species that aren’t found anywhere else in the world.
Within the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh lies some of the country’s best national parks which can be explored on our seven night Central Indian Wildlife Safari
One of the Most Thrilling Wildlife Encounters in the World
Uganda is not only a country of amazing scenic beauty, it offers what is arguably the most thrilling wildlife experience in the world – close encounters with rare mountain gorillas. The country is home to half of the world’s population of rare mountain gorillas and a visit to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest allows you to track these majestic primates and reward you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience of viewing the gorillas in their natural habitat.
Our extraordinary Handpicked Uganda
journey includes a thrilling visit with the mountain gorillas in Bwindi along with chimpanzee tracking in Chamburu Gorge and game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park.

A country bursting with stunning colonial architecture, colourful highland markets, snow-capped volcanoes and palm-fringed beaches, Ecuador is a colourful country, but did you know that it’s also one of the most species-rich countries in the world and one of the richest places on the planet for birdlife? We all know the Galapagos Islands are a nature lover’s paradise but the cloud forests that dot Ecuador contain around 15% of the world’s plant species and nearly 20% of bird species.
