Bear spotted on wildlife watching tour

Wildlife Tours

Wildlife tours are a truly exceptional experience that will bring you face to face with some of the most exotic animal species the planet has to offer. Whether you are fascinated by birds, mammals, fish, or amphibians, you will certainly be able to check a few rare animal sightings off your list while out on one of these incredible wildlife tours!

Although many people equate wildlife tours to quietly watching from a distance, this is really not the case! There are a number of different wildlife tours on offer that range from multi-day safaris to fishing expeditions, and trekking through the jungle alongside pack animals. Whether you want to witness the large mammals of the African Serengeti, experience the diversity of species in the Galapagos Islands, or meet some friendly alpacas while trekking in the Andes Mountains, there is no shortage of spectacular wildlife tours to center your next adventure around.

When is the Best Time to Book Wildlife Tours?

There really isn’t a best time to book wildlife tours, as weather patterns vary from region to region and different species of animals are better viewed in different seasons.

When it comes to going on safari in Africa, the best time to book wildlife tours is during the mild period between January and March. Alternatively, the dry season of June-October will produce great opportunities for wildlife viewing, as animals will be out in search of water. The rainy seasons of March-June and November-December provide a different wildlife viewing experience, although you will likely experience poor weather.

In terms of other viewing opportunities around the world, it is best to do some research on the specific region to determine the best time to book wildlife tours. This will provide you with the best chance to see all of the beautiful and diverse wildlife on offer to make the most of your trip.

Different Types of Wildlife Tours

Animal Supported Tours

Some adventures are just a bit too challenging for humans to complete on their own, which is where animal supported tours come into play. Hardy animals are often used for transportation in many parts of the world, so why not bring a companion along for your next trip?! From multi-day treks through the Andes Mountains of Peru and horseback riding in the Central Asian Steppe, to crossing the Sahara Desert on camelback or donkey riding in the rugged terrain of Corsica, there is no shortage of unforgettable animal supported tours waiting to be experienced all around the world.

Birdwatching Tours

Birds are fascinating creatures that can be spotted anywhere in the world, so why would someone set out on birdwatching tours? Some regions, such as the Amazon Rainforest and Galapagos Islands, feature a rich diversity of bird species that can be experienced nowhere else on the planet, making them prime destinations for a special ornithological adventure! Book one of these incredible birdwatching tours today!

The Dog Sledding in East Greenland Tour invites you into the unique lifestyle of dog sledding between isolated communities in East Greenland. Greenland has few roads and none that connect the villages, so dog sleds, snowmobiles, boats, and helicopters transport travellers around this icy land. This adventure tour reels you into the traditional way of life. While travelling by dog sled across vast snowy lands, you’ll witness Inuit traditions, visit isolated communities, and very likely get to see the northern lights. The dog team will get a rest mid-week while you will explore the Sermilik Coast on snowshoes. Take this tour as an opportunity to unplug from your connected world—there’s no cell signal out here.
