Big Cat Safaris

All our big cat tours, wildlife holidays and safaris all over the world are listed below:

From tigers in India, leopards in Sri Lanka, snow leopards in the Himalayas, lions of South Africa or cheetahs in Namibia, Royle Safaris has great big cat watching holidays to suit all tastes. Big cats are among the most charismatic of all animals and make for exciting holidays. Have a look at the tours we offer below and see if we can bring you face to face with some of the most breathtaking mammals in the world. We are always updating our big cat safaris and now offer an exciting trekking tour into the mountains of India in search of the elusive snow leopard, and are working on a tour which will delve deep into the Pantanal in Brazil to find jaguars and expand our tour into Patagonia to hunt down the powerful puma. But if these are the animals which interest you most then we can still help you.

Visit our tailor made tours page and let us create your dream big cat safari experience. We currently specialise in tiger safaris of India and offer both budget and luxury safaris visiting all of the best places in the world for tigers. In addition to this we have a brilliant success rate for leopards on our Sri Lankan safaris which includes an average of 4 leopard sighting per jeep safari! And of course southern Africa is a mecca for big cats species and with tours in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana you can be assured that we will find all the big cats you can handle.

But of course we also search out the smaller members of this brilliant family and spend equal time observing them when we spot them, whether its the Scottish wild cat in the Highlands, northern lynx in Poland, jungle cats in India, servals in Kruger National Park or caracals in the deserts of Namibia we have great success in finding cats both big and small.

Have a look at the tours we offer in search of big cats and join us on one.

All these tours are available on other dates (subject to availability) than the dates listed. Please contact us to arrange a tour on a date which suits you.
