The phrase 'on safari' quickly conjures up thoughts of the vast Serengeti, tracking elusive big game through the veld and pausing with bated breath as a lion, giraffe or rhino quietly pads in front of your vehicle. Safari is undoubtedly one of our favourite - not to mention most popular - ways to travel; A&K started on safari in Kenya over 50 years ago, after all. Yet the desire to get up close with nature's most inspiring wild animal species can take you far beyond the borders of a single country or continent. There's so much more to wildlife travel than the Big Five.
We can take you to Churchill, Canada; the world's number one polar bear viewing hotspot where you can visit the bear's natural habitat in specially equipped tundra buggies. In Chengdu, China, we can get you insider access to the Panda Breeding & Research Centre, where you can - quite literally - get up close and personal with one of the world's most endangered species, holding a furry friend and learning more about their unstable habitat and the conservation efforts being made to help grow the dwindling population. Or perhaps to deepest Uganda, into the appropriately named Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, to track the elusive mountain gorilla, and observe chimpanzees, tree-climbing lions and over 1,000 recorded bird species.
Whatever your animal passion, from lions to lemurs, we can take you to the best places on the planet to see your favourite animal in its natural habitat, and we can get you there in true A&K style, with seamless on the ground logistics and the best guides and experts in their fields.

I can easily say that nothing - nothing - in the natural world compares to an hour spent with wild mountain gorillas. An encounter with these magnificent beasts is absolutely without parallel.
