Mammal Watching

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

The classic safari: Africa, open topped jeeps, elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo and rhinos! Well yes that is the classic safari and Royle Safaris offers plenty of these tours; however there are more to our mammal watching safaris than that. We travel throughout southern Africa and in each location focus on the mammals; from the above mentioned classic big five we have giraffes, hippos, zebras, wildebeest, African wild dogs, cheetahs and more antelopes and gazelles than you can shake a stick at! But if you have seen the African plains full of wild and want to travel to different countries and see what their big game has to offer we also specialise in trips to Nepal, Sri Lanka, Poland, India and Canada where the mammals are just about as impressive as anything in Africa.

In fact India and Nepal have there own big five, substitute lions for tigers, African for Asiatic elephants, black/white rhinos for one-horned rhinos, cape for water buffalo and keep the versatile leopard and you have a big five any country would be proud of. Add in the deer, monkeys, crocodiles, wild boar and other large mammalian species and the Indian Subcontinent is regarded as even better than Africa! As far as Poland goes the far eastern forests harbour many large mammals which are now extinct throughout the rest of Europe like European bison, wolves, brown bears, lynx and wild boar and well Canada has the largest terrestrial carnivore (polar bear), the largest deer (moose), huge packs of wolves, stealthy lynx and many other deer species such as caribou, white-tailed deer and elk (red deer).

So we are sure that you will find a big game safari to suit your interests and if not you can fill in our tailor made tours form and we can arrange your dream safari anywhere in the world with a zoologist escort.

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.
