Wildlife Viewing

Seeing wild animals in their natural habitat is exhilarating, and we offer wildlife viewing adventures to suit every taste. You might observe polar bears in Churchill or in the high Arctic Svalbard archipelago or watch waddling penguins walk the shores of Antarctica. The exotic Galapagos Islands teem with wildlife that once inspired Charles Darwin and now also fascinate visitors year-round. Also in South America, the unusual flora and fauna of the Amazon jungle are a sight to see.

Perhaps there is no wildlife tour more iconic than the African safari. Follow the Big Five -- leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo -- through Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Botswana, or seek out endangered gorillas and chimpanzees in Uganda and Rwanda.

Escorted tours, expedition trips and river cruises that travel to wildlife-rich regions include accommodations, transportation, guided sightseeing and many meals in the upfront price. Independent vacations that offer wildlife viewing include your hotel stay and some transportation, and may also feature limited sightseeing and a local host to help you plan your day.
