Just occasionally a landscape alone is so jaw-droppingly beautiful as to warrant a trip in its own right, but more often than not the wildlife that inhabits that landscape (New Yorkers, for example) plays a huge part in the attraction. A recent study estimated that there are currently a staggering 8.7 million species (give or take 1.3 million) alive on our planet today, and you don't need to be a passionate disciple of Darwin to marvel at how animal, bird and marine life have adapted to their very specific habitats around the globe.
Consequently, Original Travel offers tailor made safari holidays to see fauna of all shapes and sizes across the seven continents, and often under the auspices of world expert guides. Even more importantly, we want our clients be able to see these wondrous animals for years to come, hence our involvement with such admirable organisations as the TUSK Trust, who are passionate about conservation in Africa; TOFT, who are trying to safeguard India's few remaining Bengal tigers; and many other smaller local projects around the world.
Beyond the ‘big five’ and assorted others on the African savannah, there are destinations across the continents where watching wildlife will prove every bit as rewarding. Armed with first-hand knowledge of every place in our portfolio, our consultants can talk you through the best way to experience safaris as diverse as seeing polar bears in Canada or sightings of the elusive jaguar in Brazil’s Pantanal.
