Welcome to Wild About Travel
Wildlife watching tours - bird watching holidays - culture tours for independent travellers and groups
2013 is off to a great start with Spain and Sri Lanka to be added to our portfolio of destinations very soon. Two groups of birdwatchers who recently visited South India with us saw all of the mainland endemics - see this trip report for a species list and some great photos. New reports have also been posted on North East India and The Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat. Visit our trip reports page and you'll find them at the top of the list!
There have been numerous sightings of Tiger and several of Sloth Bear, Leopard and even Tree Shrews! In Gujarat we have had great success seeing many of the range-restricted bird species including Great Indian Bustard and good views of Striped Hyena and Indian Grey Wolf. We hope you'll take time to read our latest newsletter. Established in July 2005, business is growing year on year and 2012 was no exception. We've got lots of exciting itineraries including Lions, Tigers and Wolves of Central and West India (small group tour in November 2013) and Snow Leopards in Ladakh (revised itinerary and new dates to be fixed soon). To register your interest please click and we'll send you the full information.
Please also take a look at these lovely video clips, all three taken by Jacquie Bridges, of male Asiatic Lion in Gir National Park (January 2012) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lef5sqUiPA and of a female Tigress http://youtu.be/f4J8JQ80lYM and three 15 month old cubs http://youtu.be/qPm9GylJOT0 both in Bandhavgarh (February 2013). We have plenty of ideas for anyone wishing to travel with family and friends independently.
