Natural History & Wildlife

Natural History and Wildlife holidays worldwide. 

With a zoology background and working with the UK’s leading Natural History Tour Operator we are please to book all of your wildlife holidays – tailor made trips or expert lead escorted tours, from Whale Watching in Alaska and Polar Bears in the Arctic to Tigers and exotic bird life of Asia

Contact us on 01728 748209, use the live chat or send an enquiry

There are plenty of escorted natural history tours to choose from covering birding and botany and special interest species such as whales, bears, big cats or even the ‘little things’ such as butterflies or dragonflies!  If you prefer we can tailor a holiday just for you, either travelling independently or with a private guide, that’s not a problem and everything we book is FULLY PROTECTED FROM THE UK.  With a zoology background and experience working for natural history holiday operators,we can tailor make the perfect wildlife holiday to suit what you want to see and when you want to see it, anywhere in the world!

We are in a unique position as independent travel agents as this gives us the freedom to use many different operators to tailor make your own natural history holiday or search a variety of tour operators to find the best group trip for you. We are members of AITO and as such work with specialist operators for specific wildlife tours.

Do you have a particular TV hero that inspires you to travel?  For many, myself included it’s got to be David Attenborough who has taught us all so much about natural history over decades on our screens.  These days the worldwide travels of Simon Reeve, Bruce Parry and others have inspired many to get on those hiking boots and trip off round the planet!  There have recently been some amazing photography and insights to animal behaviour in programmes such as BBC’s Big Cat Diary, Arctic Live and nearer to home Spring Watch and Autumn Watch. There are many UK and Europe based natural history holidays. 

Natural History Holidays are often dictated by the weather and animal movements around the globe.  You may have only a certain time of year you can travel or the natural phenomenon that you would like to witness only happens once a year, such as the Sardine Run in South Africa the Bat Migration in Zambia or the Monarch butterfly migration in Mexico, so ask me for the best time to travel.  Even flowers have their seasons, the carpets of spring flowers in Namaqualand for example, are only at their best for a few weeks after the rains each year and certain rainforest orchids only flower every few years!

Throughout Europe, the spring offers plenty of opportunity for walking and botany holidays with spring alpine flowers making destinations such as Switzerland, Austria or Italy or Mediterranean islands popular in May or June. Birdwatching holidays have hot spots all around the world, some favourites include Costa Rica, Gambia and Senegal, the Amazon rainforest or Malaysia, to name a few. Not too far from the UK a destination you may not have considered with fantastic natural history is the Azores.  Sitting in the Atlantic, belonging to Portugal, these mountainous islands are a hot spot for whales, diving and flowers.

We can also arrange wildlife holidays for families – contact us for specialist family holidays and safaris.    kenya-elewana-kids-guided

Jungles and Rainforests are havens for spectacular, unique and colourful wildlife around the world.  Try exotic Costa Rica for fabulous birding and butterflies, the jungles of Asia for tigers and monkeys and the forests of Madagascar for the weird and wonderful world of lemurs! Holidays to the Amazon are a must do for nature lovers but remember it covers a vast area so consider how long it takes you to get there!  In Brazil you can take a river cruise deep into the Amazon or fly in.  More easily accessible with some really good eco-lodges is the Ecuadorian Amazon and you can even visit the Amazon in Peru or Venezuela.

The great apes are one of the most popular wildlife holiday must see choices, with a background including primatology, Jules can advise you on the best places to see your choice of primates, including the Gorillas and Chimpanzees of Africa and the Orang Utan of Malaysia.  Other destinations that are great for primates include the rainforests of South America and lemurs in Madagascar.

A favourite wildlife holiday has to be the African Safari.  This is Jules’ specialist area with years of experience working in Africa, so there is a whole section of this website dedicated to safaris and the huge variety of natural history holidays to be enjoyed there. Following the great migration around the Masai Mara and Serengeti, sitting round the camp fire with a G&T listening to the noises of the African night … there’s nothing like it in the world! Take a look at the African Safari pages for details.

Penguins and other Antarctic wildlife have very short breeding seasons and the spectacle of hundreds of thousands of penguins in a breeding colony must surely be right up there on the wish list of any wildlife enthusiast!  The islands of the Falklands and South Georgia are best visited at certain times of the year, so let us find the perfect Antarctic cruise itinerary for you to get the best out of your journey to these remote locations.

The polar regions are really the ultimate challenge for a natural history holiday, with a huge variety of wildlife holidays available here including watching polar bears, walruses and fabulous sea bird colonies around the Arctic regions.  Two great places to see Polar Bears include Churchill in Canada and Spitsbergen in Norway.

Take a look at The Natural World section of this website for inspiration on the different eco-systems of our planet and through the holidays section for detail about particular wildlife encounters such as gorilla trekking or whale watching

There are specialist Natural History operators in many different countries and we make sure you are matched with the best group, operator or guide to fit with your requirements. If you are particularly interested in wildlife photography then we have contacts for holidays with specialist photography guides, such as this wonderful safari in Zambia

Botwana-(Motswiri)-Giraffe-

 

This Safari was a repeat visit to a country after many years of safaris elsewhere in Africa and India, and it did not disappoint. In fact I am happy to say it was probably the best ever I can remember (and if Jules was responsible for the sole use of vehicle and guide at both Mara North and Valley camps - thanks for using your influence with the Kicheche Camps!). Using the smaller camps in the Masai conservancies of Mara North and Naboisho meant low vehicle numbers and sightings were often enjoyed in splendid isolation, with the freedom to drive off road too. I have just returned from experiencing the most perfect adventure....
Deirdre West & Richard Wilson- Kenya (July 2017)
September 11, 2017

From the beginning the professionalism and communication from Travel With Jules was brilliant and I couldn't have asked for more. I really believe I'll never go through another travel agent again. It was the most amazing holiday, seeing magnificent animals, I had a tear when I saw the blue whale! You arranged an amazing trip, thank you so much.
Sarah Bradshaw – Azores Whale Watching (May 2017)
May 16, 2017

Thank you again for another wonderful holiday! Everything was very well organised and we cannot fault the attention to detail from the time we were greeted at Heathrow until our return. The Experts and Azorean Guides were excellent as was the accommodation and food on the ship. We visited all 9 islands which is rare as often the weather prevents one visiting Corvo due to bad weather and need to land using 10 person Zodiacs. We saw 7 whales and 3 species of dolphins!
Martin & Pauline – Azores (April 2017)
April 26, 2017

I booked my trip in the UK through 'Travel With Jules' to avoid having to send large sums of money to a foreign bank account. Using a UK agent obviously adds to the cost, but I considered it well worth it for financial security, and certainty that there would actually be someone waiting for me when I stepped off the plane. I visited Lobeke National Park and Sangha Lodge in Dzanga Sanga National Park. Amazing sightings of forest wildlife including elephants, lowland Gorillas, sitatunga, Mangabeys, forest hogs and stunning bird life.
Andrew Sneddon – Cameroon & CAR (Feb 2017)
March 30, 2017

Thank you so much for your hard work putting together our fabulous three generation family safari to Northern Tanzania. We loved everything and the highlight was our private Serengeti Camp. We all had an AMAZING time at our private camp in the Serengeti. Our hosts at the camp were all fantastic. We saw an incredible amount of wildlife and the migration was something else, we were surrounded 360 degrees by wildebeest!
Aldersley Family – Tanzania Safari (Feb 2017)
February 26, 2017

The holiday was just incredible and couldn't have been any better in our wildest dreams. Thank you for all your assistance and your genius in putting this itinerary together for us to perfectly match what we wanted. Giraffe Manor was exceptional and even now feels like we were in a dream. It was great to know that every step of our holiday was taken care of including visiting our fostered elephant and meeting the last male Northern White Rhino on the planet.
Robin & Sam – Kenya (Oct 2016)
October 26, 2016

I felt like the King of Scotland again! Another amazing holiday to Africa .. thoroughly enjoyed everything in Zimbabwe and already want to go back again! In Mana Pools I got up very close on walking safaris to a pack of wild dogs and saw "Boswell" the 50 year old elephant who stands on his back legs to feed!
Wilf Graham – Zimbabwe (Sept 2016)
December 13, 2016

Thank you for all your hard work in putting together our tailor made holiday to Tanzania. Accommodation throughout was at least very good, sometimes really excellent. The Old Boma hotel where the service was super - one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in anywhere in the world Hassan our safari guide was first class and very helpful. The Bush Rover camping was fun ... for one night!
Eclipse in Tanzania & Selous Safari – Mr & Mrs R (Sept 2016)
September 13, 2016

Thank you again for your help and support with organising the trip. It truly was spectacular and such an amazing place. The aurora display we got on the 3 nights in Dawson was out of this world at times the entire sky was filled above us and no lens would have been wide enough to capture it
Yukon and Alaska – Mark Tolcher (Aug-Sept 2016)
October 5, 2016

The holiday was AMAZING, Gambia is such a great destination, thank you for recommending we visit and putting together a wonderful varied experience for us, we loved it all! Fathala Wildlife Reserve in Senegal was incredible, the ferry transfers were great fun and an insight to local life and we were well looked after on both journeys. The Mandina Lodges were stunning and the floating lodge was lovely.
Dave & Amanda – Gambia (March 2016)
May 30, 2016

We had the most wonderful time thank you so much!! We loved the safari in South Luangwa. Danforth yachting (Lake Malawi) was great fun - we enjoyed all the activities. Kaya Mawa was gorgeous we had a great time and the food was fantastic!! All in all a hugely successful trip so thank you for putting it all together for us. We will definitely recommend you to friends
Brown Family – Zambia & Malawi (March 2016)
May 20, 2016

What can I say? You did it again! From the night I arrived, being welcomed back to Hemingways in Nairobi (I felt like the King of Scotland again!), to the day I left everything was a complete delight. Elephant Watch Camp is lovely, the staff there are superb. They know all the elephants by name and there were around 9 families in the area, Saba had arranged a surprise sleep out for me with the warriors! I had some amazing leopard sightings around Samburu too ... all in all very sad to leave there.
Wilf Graham – Elephant Watch, Kenya (March 2016)
March 29, 2016

Jean and I are fairly familiar with safari travel and Zambia would be the first place that I would recommend to any newcomers. The help of the Africa Tours reception on arrival in Lusaka which you arranged for us is a bonus. One of the wildlife highlights was seeing a pack of wild dogs on their kill.
Nick, Jean and Jackie – Zambia (March 2016)
March 29, 2016

The entire trip and booking process has been a highlight! From talking to Jules on the phone trying to decide where to go to finding out the actual experience was exactly as she described it would be. Wildlife, nature, good weather, friendly welcomes…fantastic food… perfect flights… everything! Going to Zambia in the Emerald season is a delight...
Naomi Delorme – Zambia (Feb – March 2016)
March 22, 2016

Giving us a wealth of knowledge from her years spent working in Africa, Jules soon put together the perfect holiday for us. Just back home, the holiday already seems like ages ago but we really did have the trip of a lifetime! Thank you Jules for your arrangements and making it all work so well for us (especially talking to us whilst we were flying from the Mara, not sure which air strip to get off the plane!!)
David & Sue Hughes – Kenya (Feb – March 2016)
March 24, 2016

We just returned from a beautiful trip to Ethiopia, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for organising it and sorry for the late changes we made to the programme! Simien Mountains, Lalibela and Bale Mountains were beautiful as were the Gelada baboons, the Ibex, incredible amount of native birds and the Ethiopian wolf
Hera & Taco – Ethiopia (December 2015)
January 12, 2016

in summary, Jules, you were excellent again. The trip up the Kinabantagan River was possibly not as exciting as I had hoped, but I saw what I have always wanted to see (actually the Proboscis monkeys rather than the Orang Utans) in the wild, the guides very knowledgeable and the Malayan people absolutely delightful.
Ian & Cathy Furbank – Borneo (November 2015)
December 10, 2015

You worked really hard to meet budget and needs of our group changing itinerary to accommodate our birding safari in Tanzania. The large game viewing was brilliant with hundreds of elephants and several good sightings of lions and we even had cheetahs.
Birding Group Safari – Tanzania (November 2015)
December 14, 2015

Everything was really terrific, I think we enjoyed India even more this year than last time and Jawai Leopard Camp was simply wonderful! Thank you to you, Nikhil and his team so much for another fabulous holiday to India!
Jenny & David – India (Oct-Nov 2015)
November 23, 2015

Romania was a lovely place and the people so friendly. The highlight was seeing the wild brown bears, such beautiful animals. Dracula's castle was just as impressive as in pictures!
Stephanie and John – Romania (October 2015)
October 28, 2015

I think we must have got caught in a time warp as the time seemed to stretch away into the distance. Thank you so much for suggesting Zambia and Malawi to us in the first place and organising everything, including the unique wedding ceremony in South Luangwa!
Imogen & Den – Zambia & Malawi Wedding (Sept 2015)
October 6, 2015

Thank you SO much for everything you have done to make our holiday so special. If ever you have clients in the future who are considering a visit to the Kafue, please have no hesitation in using us as a testimonial as there could be no where better for an African safari.
Mark and Sarah – Zambia (August 2015)
September 6, 2015

My 6 and 8 year old daughters loved every minute and didn't want to come home, it was a perfect family holiday, with plenty to do and very educational for them but fun at the same time
Moss Family – Costa Rica (April 2015)
May 18, 2015

Jimmy was a fantastic guide, thank you Jules for getting him on the trip with us. Virunga lodge was a little paradise on earth with beautiful sunsets and sunrises, great food, lovely people that wanted to do anything for us, just amazing. We saw the gorillas on all 3 days - incredible!
Hera & Taco – Rwanda Gorilla trip (December 2014)
January 23, 2015

What can I say ... you did it again! I loved every minute of my Kenya adventure. The Born Free Foundation anniversary safari was superb. We spent loads of time with Virginia McKenna whilst at Elsa's Kopje, she was full of 'hidden facts' about the lives of the Adamsons and I really enjoyed her company. Amboseli was fabulous. In Nairobi I enjoyed my visit to Daphne Sheldrick's Elephant Orphans and seeing my adopted baby later in the afternoon. So thank you again for your superb organisation and personalised 'conservation' based safari, I'm retiring soon so look out I will be travelling even more!
Wilf Graham – Kenya (Oct-Nov 2014)
November 17, 2014

The safari experience was priceless for my son Alex, who learnt so much and had a genuine holiday of a lifetime. Thank you very much for helping us choose and putting together such a superb holiday.
Julie Smith – Tanzania (October 2014)
November 30, 2014

I can’t praise Dinknesh Tours enough – they went out of their way to look after us and we had a fabulous wildlife guide.  Particularly enjoyed the Simian and Bale Mountains and the Gelada Baboons.  Bale Mountain Lodge was lovely but the rest of the accommodation (and generally throughout Ethiopia) is very basic and not […]
Neil – Ethiopia (October 2014)
November 17, 2014

We absolutely loved Malawi and the whole itinerary was perfect! You were very efficient in sorting it all out, we could not fault a thing. Mountain biking, hiking, boat safaris and Lake Malawi - all very different and all great fun!
The Mack Family – Malawi (July 2014)
August 13, 2014

For the last three years we have been using Jules to arrange our annual winter long haul holidays and have enjoyed travelling with someone else doing the organising in the full knowledge that should a problem occur we have a reliable point of contact who ensures that our enjoyment of the holiday isn't in any way spoiled. I would thoroughly recommend using 'Travel with Jules' to anyone contemplating wishing to travel on a wildlife & sightseeing adventure!
David & Maureen Cargill – India, Nepal, Botswana, Tanzania, Brazil (2012-2017)
July 12, 2014

Thanks for organising our tailor made honeymoon to Ethiopia – the trip was great, we really enjoyed ourselves and found the Ethiopian people a real pleasure to spend time with.
Matthew & Lucy – Ethiopia (April 2014)
June 11, 2014

It was great to have your help, advice and guidance on where to go on our travels for our Honeymoon in Thailand. La Flora was beautiful and Khao Sok National Park and the elephants amazing! We were sad to leave but had so many great memories, thank you again for all your help to make this happen.
Kilda and Lee – Thailand (Feb 2014)
April 29, 2014

A huge thank you for organising and booking our holiday to Zambia and Malawi, Norman Carr Safaris, what can we say, WOW what a great company. For the first two nights we were up graded to their 'flag ship' new camp at Chinzombo! We left with very fond memories and we really do have Africa in our hearts now. We really did 'live our dream' so thank you for making it happen.
Phil & Sue Fenning – Zambia & Malawi (Feb 2014)
March 14, 2014

Wow, we had an amazing time in Canada! We mushed huskies and ski-dooed over frozen lakes in stunning blue skies and sunshine and saw the Northern Lights in the Yukon three nights in a row!
Julie & Chris Bartlett – Canada (Feb 2014)
March 18, 2014

We really did have an amazing time in Kenya - I really appreciate your work in organising everything for us, it was fantastic!! The effort to make my birthday special was lovely. We feel we have seen animals in the wild that are not overly harassed and negatively impacted by human activity, this is very important to us.
Aimee & Hazel – Kenya (Jan 2014)
February 21, 2014

Our packed holiday included fly-camping and bucket showers, walking with Samburu warriors and camels, brilliant safari experts and ‘real’ local knowledge, masses of fun on the jeep in the Masai Mara, wonderful food, stunning scenery and wildlife, white sandy beaches and lovely warm seas..... You got it just right for us. You will have to go some to better this next time – that is your challenge!
Balmer Family – Kenya & Tanzania safari (Dec 2013)
January 10, 2014

Thank you so much for organising our amazing holiday and recommending South Luangwa in Zamibia. We have had a great time. Lodges, camps, hotels and all the transfers and pick ups were brilliant throughout Zambia, Victoria Falls and Cape Town. We loved every minute of the holiday, including the lions grumbling outside our tent at night in Kakuli Camp! I can thoroughly recommend Blackheath Lodge in Sea Point, Cape Town. The Jazz brunch at Winchester Mansions was very relaxed and fun.
Christine & Ian Bland – Zambia & Cape Town (Nov 13)
November 24, 2013

A special thank you for organising both my visits this year to Namibia and introducing me to Conservancy Safaris.  They were such a privilege to travel with, especially this last trip where Garth personally guided me to the most remote areas I have ever been to.  This adventure with Conservancy Safaris was amongst my best […]
Wilf Graham – Namibia (Feb & Oct 2013)
December 13, 2013

Lovely people, lovely food …. fascinating culture, the elephants rocked! Thanks for everything you did this time round Jules. We have been so fortunate to visit amazing places in the past – but this (and the consensus of all) was the holiday to top all holidays.
Long family – Thailand (July 2013)
August 8, 2013

Just returned from our fabulous holiday that you arranged for us to Malaysia. Everything ran like clockwork – all the arrangements and pick ups (good drivers and vehicles from Discovery Overland Holidays), the accommodation was superb and we had many great experiences.  We did not see rain, surprisingly for this region in June, there was […]
The Buck Family – Malaysia (June 2013)
July 4, 2013

Thank you for all your help through the planning and booking over the last year or so for our honeymoon to Kenya & Mozambique. It was a truly magical experience and one we will never forget. Thanks for all your help in creating some fantastic memories for us! Lake Nakuru was stunning. After a boat trip on Lake Naivasha we had a lovely afternoon and evening at Loldia house - weird sitting reading whilst buffalo and hippo are so close! Karen Blixen Camp was a real safari experience. We loved it here the most and were well looked after. Governors hot air balloon ride over the Mara - AMAZING!!
Abi & Paul – Kenya & Mozambique Honeymoon (April 2013)
May 31, 2013

Thank you so much for all your hard work ! Our entire honeymoon to Malawi and Zambia was flawlessly planned from start to finish. The advice we received prior to booking was knowledgeable and invaluable upon arrival. Julie was generous and patient with her time and answered all our questions and concerns, regularly in communication out of office hours. We literally had the trip of a lifetime with so many 'firsts' in terms of experiences. The safari in South Luangwa was amazing, the village experience at Ntchisi Forest Lodge was a bit of a culture shock, but glad we went and Kaya Mawa was truly out of this world, we were looked after incredibly by the management team, the food was superb and we had our own little pool!
Nicola & Robbie Nolan – Malawi & Zambia (April 2013)
May 20, 2013

Julie organised our holiday to Zambia which more than met our requirements - the accommodation was excellent (we stayed with Norman Carr Safaris in South Luangwa, Mayukuyuku in Kafue and Waterberry at Livingstone), our guides for safari and birdwatching were the best available and all travel arrangements went smoothly. Julie's attention to detail and knowledge of Zambia meant that our individual wishes were met throughout our holiday. Thank you very much!
Gwynfryn & Kathryn – Zambia (February 2013)
March 1, 2013

I work hard to be able to afford great holidays. I know that you Jules work very hard to make sure that I enjoy my holidays. I love the fact that you can take my fledgling dream for a trip, and transform it into real life; that you listen to what I would like to do, and adjust the finer details to fit my dream, never suggesting that my dream be squeezed into a pre-formed package.
Ian Furbank – Peru (November 2012)
December 22, 2012

Julie's knowledge of wildlife tourism to Africa is nothing short of excellent, she always comes up with some gems of ideas that you would never think of or find for yourself!
Rich & Cheryl – Rwanda (November 2012)
December 15, 2012

We are so grateful for all of Julie's advice having just come back from an absolutely fantastic holiday to Kenya. She went to huge lengths to provide us with different options that fitted our budget and wish list, and answered our endless questions with patience and enthusiasm. We have already recommended Julie to some of our friends and will carry on recommending her to lots more.
Anne & Paul – Kenya (September 2012)
October 13, 2012

We had a wonderful time in Peru - thank you for organising this, the people were lovely and I particularly enjoyed the train travel. The Amazon lodge was amazing and we did all the tours day and night!
Camilla & Jeremy – Peru (September 2012)
December 27, 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic time in Malawi and Zambia – our first venture into Africa. Nothing was too much trouble and Julie always found the time to talk to us, answer our many questions and clarify every detail. We would not hesitate in recommending Travel with Jules to anyone who wanted first class, worry free, personal travel services.
Dianne & David Gazeley – Malawi & Victoria Falls (June 2012)
June 15, 2012

As a result of her extensive knowledge of Africa Julie fully understood my requirements and delivered a holiday which my son will never forget in Zambia. We could not fault the travel arrangements and were made to feel welcome where ever we went by all representatives and the staff of the camps we stayed at in South Luangwa and through their extensive knowledge of the local wildlife we truly experienced the magic of Africa.
Chris & Izaak – Zambia (June 2012)
June 11, 2012

Thank you to Julie for making the arrangements for our holiday to Malaysia and saving me a lot of trips and telephone calls to a high street travel agent. The service you provided was first class and we will recommend you to anyone we know who may be thinking of booking a holiday.
David & Jackie Thomas – Malaysia (May 2012)
July 13, 2012

Julie's knowledge and passion for Zambia was amazing, her knowledge meant that we were able to have "real" conversations about our trip and make the right decisions meaning that we had an unbelievable holiday. We can't wait to go back to Africa and when we do it will be through Travel With Jules.
Rob Shave – Zambia (Aug 2011)
October 9, 2011

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
