Forget the wild life of the city and experience the real wildlife of the natural world.
Whilst an African safari is still high on our list of the greatest trips of all time, outstanding wildlife adventures are abundant across the globe.

Whether you’re looking for an ultra-high-end luxury lodge and big cat safari, giving-back through an engaging conservation-oriented agenda or something a little more out of the box, like donning a tux and joining the great march of the penguins, we’ve got your covered – even if it’s going to take some serious kit and expert know-how to get you there.
From the comfort of a five-star eco-resort, find yourself amidst the lush highlands of Santa Cruz, at the heart of the Galapagos National Park. While away the hours with a good book as new furry and feathered friends drop by your bungalow or hop aboard a private yacht for the day and explore the waters of the archipelago abundant with exotic marine life.
Head to Chiang Rai in Northern Thailand for an unforgettable stay in a luxurious jungle bubble. Perched above the forest, by day observe elephants as they wander through their natural habitat, and by night, lay back in wonder under a blanket of stars.
For a more unexpected wildlife experience, visit Dubai’s Desert Conservation Reserve. Take a desert safari or nature walk across the iconic vistas and sweeping plains of the Hajar Mountain massif to spot the famed Arabian oryx, as well as sand gazelles, foxes, hares and the Ethiopian hedgehog – amongst other smaller and reptilian type creatures.
