When swept up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, wildlife holidays provide an opportunity to escape and reconnect with yourself and the awe-inspiring beauty of this planet. Whether you’re into wildlife photography, bird watching or walking holidays, there is nothing more exhilarating than scaling foreign lands and seas in search of wild animals eating, playing and interacting with each other in their natural environment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What nature tours do you recommend?
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.
Where can I see elephants in their natural habitat?
You can see elephants in a variety of different habitats like Botswana, Kenya, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India.
