Discover some of the best wildlife safaris in the world


Starting out as World Primate Safaris in 2005, we understandably have unbeatable knowledge on all things primate, from tracking the mountain gorillas of Uganda and Rwanda, to orangutans in Borneo and even lemurs in Madagascar. Our second brand became World Big Cat Safaris, and was a great chance to show how knowledgeable we are with these magnificent creatures across the globe, from the tigers of India and the famous big cats of Africa, to elusive jaguars in Brazil and snow leopards in Ladakh. Last, but by no means least, we opened World Bear Safaris, specialising in seeing the polar bears and grizzly bears of the Arctic and North America. We finally brought everything under the one brand, Natural World Safaris, in 2012.

Some of our most in demand wildlife encounters:

  • Gorilla Tracking - Track habituated groups of mountain gorillas in Rwanda and Uganda or the western lowland gorilla in the Congo, Gabon, Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
  • Big Cat Tracking - Track the elusive Bengal tiger in India, the South American puma in Chile and ply the rivers of Brazil's Pantanal to see jaguars stalking their prey.
  • Swimming with Whales - Swim with Orcas in Norway, Sperm Whales in Dominica or Humpback Whales in the Cook Islands.
  • Night Drives - In Eastern and Southern Africa, head out on night drives and safaris in search of nocturnal species such as golden cats, spotted hyenas and leopards.
  • Rainforest Exploration - Immerse yourself in Costa Rica's vibrant and wild rainforests the in search of primates and caiman, sloths and macaws. The faraway island of Borneo is home to the world's oldest and most revered rainforests, the vastness of dense canopies and rich foliage is filled with a honeypot of weird and wonderful biodiversity.
  • Walking Safaris - Walk amongst the big game in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, Mana Pools in Zimbabwe, and Karisia in Kenya.
