Poland Wildlife Holidays
Our wildlife holidays, wildlife tours and safaris of Poland are listed below:
Ever felt like travelling back to a time when Britain was covered in ancient oak / ash woodland dominated by wolves, bears, lynx, wild boars, deer, bison, oxen and horses? Well you can come pretty close to experiencing it all in eastern Poland. Unfortunately the original oxen (aurochs) and horses (tarpan) are now extinct but the rest are doing well certain national parks such as Bialowieza and Biebrza marshes. Bialowieza national park is an untouched area of woodland which spans Belarus and eastern Poland. Because of the age of the forest and the level of protection it has received for so long Bialowieza forest is one of the last places in Europe to see the mega-fauna which used to span from Scotland to Siberia.
Grey wolves padding along the mossy forest floor, brown bears fattening up after hibernation, wild boars digging out truffles and the European bison standing proud and grazing in the forest clearings. Poland really is an exception among European countries in being able to boast large mammals to a similar degree as Canada, USA and Brazil. It is not just the mammal life that is great here but birding is also brilliant. Bird species include all ten European species of woodpeckers and lekking great snipes.
So if you want to see large mammals including top carnivores and large herbivores as well as a huge amount of bird life but you have not got the time to travel half way around the world…well join one of our tours to Poland and get up close to spectacular wildlife whilst staying in Europe.
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.
