Our 'Wildlife' itineraries visit some of the few truly wild places left on earth, complementing our ever popular wildlife experiences. They are all special and offer an insight into why we need to protect these habitats.

Spotting some of the world’s most incredible species in their natural habitat is an experience that will live with you forever.

A Jules Verne Wildlife Tour offers you front row seats to some of nature’s most dramatic shows. From India’s Bengal tigers to Chobe’s vast elephant herds. Whichever breed of wildlife you’re fascinated by, our aim is to get you up close and personal.

As well as extensive viewing and photographic opportunities, our specialist tours also offer the chance to learn about the behaviour of the wildlife, as well as the equally fascinating environments they inhabit. Expert local wildlife guides are on hand and eager to share their extensive knowledge and passion, built over years dedicated to studying their wild neighbours.

While we are known for our small group tours, many of our wildlife itineraries offer a ‘smaller’ group experience, designed to offer improved comfort levels during game drives and the absolute best opportunity to maximise your wildlife viewing. Join us for your next wildlife adventure.
