Wildlife holidays with Explore
You'll never forget the experience of spotting your favourite animal in the wild. And whichever animal you want to see, we've likely got a wildlife tour you can see it on. We run hundreds of wildlife holidays, from African safari holidays to bear watching tours.
The majority of our tours include the opportunity to spot wildlife in the wild, and we know this is an experience that our customers love. We also run specific wildlife tours which are all about seeing wildlife up-close, with opportunities to photograph and learn about the animals, their behaviours and habitats.
Our wildlife holidays include trekking to see gorillas and chimps in Uganda, spotting sloths in the rainforest of Costa Rica and seeing the majestic Bengal tiger in India's national parks.
Responsible wildlife watching
Responsible travel and tourism is essential to us at Explore. We don't visit zoos; we see animals in the wild where possible, even endangered animals. But where, sadly, it's unlikely or not possible to see the animals in the wild, we visit rehabilitation centres that are working hard to care for the animals and increase their populations.
We also support wildlife conservation charities, through financial donations or by including visits in our itineraries. These trips include our Mahouts Elephant Extension in Thailand, which can be added as an extension to an Asia trip. On this three-day trip, set up by our close partners the Mahouts Elephant Foundation, you can camp with Mahouts and witness Asian elephants in their natural habitat.
