About this tour
You will visit the following places:
- United Kingdom
- Galapagos Islands
A Galapagos Safari
The Galapagos Islands have long been enchanting the minds and imaginations of scientists, adventurers, and nature lovers. Largely famous for the Galápagos tortoises and the land and marine iguanas, the islands are also home to many notable species like the Galápagos penguin, frigatebird, Galápagos sea lion, blue-footed booby, a number of finches, the flightless cormorant and the Galápagos hawk. A land-based safari from the Galapagos Safari Camp affords you the opportunity to explore the neighboring islands of North Seymour, Bartolomé, Plazas, Santa Fé, Floreana and Isabela with a naturalist guide during the day, while spending the night in an African-style luxury tented camp in the highlands of Santa Cruz.
A Walking Safari in Scotland
While Scotland may not be a country you would immediately consider for a walking safari, it’s a country that has some incredibly scenic landscapes in the highlands and islands best accessed by foot. From the Isle of Skye, you can hike around the Black Cuillin mountains and Loch Coruisk and spy on marine wildlife on Loch Scavaig. And for some of the most scenic hiking in the British Isles, head to Glen Nevis where you’ll find the gorgeous Steall Falls.
A Walking and Canoe Safari in Botswana
Explore Botswana as the first African explorers did: in mokoros and on foot. This Botswana walking safari combines three days of walking in the Okavango Delta with four days on a canoe trail on the Selinda Spillway (depending on water levels). Each day offers something different and a chance to uncover the bush’s many surprises.
An Amazon Safari in Peru
During the Amazon’s wet season, you can explore the Amazon River and deep into the rainforest via a skiff. From there, you’ll have an excellent vantage point of sloths high above, squirrel monkeys swinging from branches, and the amazing birdlife that can be found in the rainforest. The best part about an Amazon safari is the naturalist guides though – their passion for nature and the Amazon’s wildlife is infectious. They can locate any bird by their song, know where to find caimans in the dark, can smell monkeys from a distance, and call pink dolphins closer to the skiff. If you need more convincing to take an Amazon safari, be sure to read Amy’s blog about her time aboard the Amazon Aria.
A Winter Safari in India
Hemis National Park is believed to have the highest density of snow leopards of any protected area in the world. The high altitude park lies in the eastern Ladakh region and is famous for being the best place to spot snow leopards in the wild. Head there during the winter to seek out the elusive snow leopard among other wildlife like the Tibetan argali sheep, ibex, urial, wild mountain goat, blue sheep, chukhar, snowcocks, and golden eagleTerms, conditions and restrictions apply; pricing, availability, and other details subject to change and/ or apply to US or Canadian residents.
