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

It is common nowadays to be able to see much wildlife and experience wild places in comfort. Returning to lodges which are sometimes incredibly luxurious in between jeep safaris or coming back to nice resorts and hotels for the night after a day hiking in the hills of forests looking for animals. But sometimes that is not possible, for some of the world’s rarest wildlife we have to go deeper into true wilderness, we have to leave behind civilisation, sometimes even leaving the near ever-presence of phone connections and internet access to get into the realm of some species.

Royle Safaris has a range of these trips which we refer to as more expedition style trips than your typical safari or wildlife watching holiday. This may refer to the need for camping and bringing in all of our equipment and food with us as there are no facilities or means of obtaining anything when at the location; sometimes it refers to the fact that we will be trying for an animal or visiting a location which is seldom seen or visited and so we just do not know 100% what to expect every time. In time we will repeat these trips and so gain a better knowledge over the years of what to expect and how the trip will run and in some cases what was once expedition style it would become more normalised.

Another factor we consider when deciding whether our wildlife watching tour is an Wildlife Expedition Tour is whether we include any date collection, camera trapping, conservation work or educational aspects. These factors are important for the ongoing research and conservation of many habitats and species globally and as many of our trips are run in the remoteness corners of the world and involve trying to see some of the world’s rarest species we are careful to make sure that we contribute to research and conservation at every possibility. This can take many forms and on some of our Expedition Style Safaris you will be actively involved in the research and conservation work.

So if getting off the beaten track if your idea of heaven or if you have always dreamed about knowing what it would be like to be part of a wildlife documentary team or maybe if you just want to contribute direct to conservation then we are sure to have Wildlife Expedition for you.

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.
