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

Few animals raise such good feelings as bears do. Often huge, fluffy and cute they are a joy to find and observe in the wild and Royle Safaris offers some fantastic opportunities to see some of the best the bear world has to offer. Our director has spent time in Ecuador working for the Andean Bear Project and in that time learned to appreciate the impact that the spectacled bears have in this finely balanced ecosystem and it was whilst he was high up in the paramo of the Andes tracking the bears he thought how amazing it would be to show other people this beautiful part of the world.

So you can enjoy the delights of the Ecuadorian cloud forests as we search out the very rare and elusive spectacled bears, or if its polar bears that interest you check out our tours of Canada and take advantage of the prime polar bear viewing period as the largest aggregation of polar bears on the planet takes place outside of Churchill every year.

Royle Safaris has pioneered and offers unique trips to China in search of the elusive and iconic Giant Panda, we are the only wildlife holiday company in the world offering specific trips to see all 8 species of bear in the world. So if bears are your favourite animals, we will have the trip for you.
