For a Wildlife Adventure unlike no other, don’t look any further than Australia. Renowned for its quantity of endemic species that you won’t find anywhere else in the world, this behemoth of a country offers harsh and complex environments coupled with huge expanses where you won’t see another person for days on end. Due to the sheer size of Australia, wildlife viewing has traditionally been viewed as difficult however this is not the case. Working with hand-picked local wildlife experts, we put you in the Right Place at the Right Time to maximise your wildlife viewing opportunities…
The sixth-largest country in the world, Australia is formed of six states; including the island territory of Tasmania. Each State is unique in its own weird and wonderful way with species that are not only native to the continent but also highly complex in their physiology and ecological behaviours. As such, wildlife viewing in Australia is highly seasonal, and depending on what species you wish to encounter, great care needs to be taken when planning your safari so that you travel at the correct time of year. As a destination, Australia can also be visited on multiple occasions (remember it is vast!) so we advise either planning for the long haul (5-6 weeks minimum to cover most states in one go) or prepare to visit multiple times and cover off states in a more detailed and holistic way, allowing you to really get under the skin of a region and understand its wildlife more deeply.
We can offer a multitude of safaris in Australia to suit a range of requirements although not the easiest place to visit on a shoestring budget. Flying to Australia alone can be expensive and once there, day-to-day costs can also run high. We advise pre-booking as much as possible with your Destination Specialist and also heeding their advice when they recommend taking advantage of packages that include wildlife activities and food and beverage inclusions. Some of our safaris operate in the most remote regions in Australia and as such it's best to plan ahead and have all bases covered before you go.
