Wildlife holidays

On our wildlife holidays, we'll take you to the region's most astounding natural habitats, where excursions led by expert guides offer the chance to observe these extraordinary creatures first-hand.

From the giant tortoises of the Galápagos to the penguins of Patagonia, from thriving Amazonian ecosystems to Costa Rican cloud-forests reverberating with birdsong – wildlife is at the heart of so many of Latin America’s great holiday experiences.

This continent of breathtaking biodiversity and kaleidoscopic extremes of geography is home to the largest rainforest, the greatest river, the longest mountain range and the driest desert. The vast variety of environments makes for a staggering array of animal and bird life – in fact a new species is discovered every three days in the Amazon, and over 50% of the world’s total bird species call Latin America home. On our wildlife holidays, we'll take you to the region's most astounding natural habitats, where rewarding excursions led by expert guides offer the chance to see some of these extraordinary creatures first-hand.
