Whether you want to venture somewhere different, tick something off your bucket list or encounter a new species, our unique safaris put you in the right place at the right time for incredible wildlife experiences.
In a shrinking world that is increasingly tamed by human activity, we continue to push the boundaries of travel by exploring remote locales as well as lesser-known parts of established safari destinations, all to experience the thrill of the extraordinary.
In 2019, we’ll be heading to the verdant wetlands of Botswana in the company of renowned photojournalist Ami Vitale, whose experience, expertise and journalistic credentials will help you capture impactful images on safari. Over in Kenya, National Geographic photographers Andy Mann and Keith Ladzinski will be venturing through the exclusive Naboisho Conservancy, which boasts all the wildlife highlights of the neighbouring Masai Mara but with fewer camps, fewer guests and fewer vehicles.
Less than a month later, Keith will be at the helm of another NWS expedition, this time in Chilean Patagonia. Join him and a team of expert trackers as you search for the elusive puma amidst the stunning wilderness of Torres del Paine National Park. Big cat enthusiasts will also be catered for in the Indian Himalayas, where the intrepid traveller can visit centuries-old Buddhist monasteries, pass through mountain valleys over 10,000 ft above sea level, and track snow leopards alongside local Ladakhi guides.
For those seeking to experience the most remote reaches of the planet, our polar expeditions aboard ice-strengthened ships can take you to wildlife hotspots in both the Arctic and Antarctic. In April 2019, fine-art photographer David Yarrow will be leading a trip to Svalbard – one of the best places in the world for polar bear sightings – while former BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Steve Winter will be heading to the Arctic archipelago in May. And in 2020, David will again be joining us for an epic journey to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula, where you’ll hone your photography skills in some of the wildest places on earth and witness landscapes that have to be seen to be believed.
These are just a sample of the exciting small group departures we have planned over the next two years, but if you’re looking to craft your own adventure, our expert Destination Specialists can create a bespoke itinerary that’s tailor-made for you. Coming face to face with mountain gorillas in Rwanda, spotting grizzly bears in Alaska and searching for jaguars in Brazil are just some of the safaris that you can embark upon in 2019 and beyond.
