Just completed the Just Jaguars Pantanal trip. Absolutely excellent: lots of cooperative jaguars and giant otters and kingfishers as well as many other birds and mammals. Up there with the Baha Sea of Cortez trip. Outstanding guide too in Marco Felix.

Just been to Sri Lanka Blue Whales and Leopard trip with my daughter. My second trip with N T (first was Just Jaguars)
We had a super time. All well organised, stayed in great and different hotels. We did 3 Whale watching tours and saw 16 Blue Whales, 1 Whale Shark, Bottlenose, Spinner and Risso’s Dolphins. We also had 3 nights in Yala Nat Park with a full day visit to the smaller and quieter Lunugamvehera which was very different than Yala. That was a great thing to visit 2 different parks. We saw 5 Leopards and all the other Sri Lankan animals.
We had 3 super guides, very knowledgeable and such great ‘spotters’.
A great trip that we will ever forget!

A wonderful few days in remote Sweden. Breathtaking scenery and special wildlife with the comfort of a superb family run guesthouse. Hearing Wolves howling on a perfectly still night in the forest was something very special indeed. This was my first holiday with Naturetrek and now the only question is where to go next! Everything was very well organised and the guides outstanding. Many thanks. Alan.

From Naturetrek

Who are we?

Naturetrek operates the largest selection of professionally organised, expert-led wildlife holidays and tours in the world. We’ve been organising specialist wildlife tours for over 25 years.

What do we do?

We enjoy taking you to see the world’s special wildlife and places. Staffed by wildlife enthusiasts and dedicated travel professionals, we are passionate about organising outstanding, competitively priced, responsible wildlife experiences around the world.

Our programme of holidays includes bird watching and botanical tours, bear, whale and tiger watching holidays plus a variety of wildlife-orientated treks, conservation tours and expedition cruises to some of the most spectacular regions on Earth.

Where are we based?

Based in rural Hampshire in south-central England, we occupy a characterful converted barn in the village of Chawton, near the market town of Alton.

Our Staff

All of Naturetrek’s staff offer a friendly, flexible and expert service. Most have been with the company a long time and know the trade inside out. All our staff have a very keen interest in natural history, conservation and travel, and we pride ourselves on the extremely personal and knowledgeable service we offer you. You can find details about individual members of staff below - simply click on the person's name to reveal their details.

Visiting us

Naturetrek's head office occupies a beautiful barn conversion set amongst a pleasant 12-acre grassland site in the village of Chawton, just a few minutes’ drive from the market town of Alton.

As well as discussing your travel plans with us, there’s a lot to do in the nearby towns and villages and their surrounds. Chawton Cottage, where Jane Austen lived for the last eight years of her short life, is a popular tourist attraction that is open to the public year-round. The magnificent Elizabethan manor, Chawton House, the former home of Jane Austen's brother, is now a museum of women's literature and is also open to the public, together with its gardens. Both are just a short walk from Mingledown Barn.

A few miles away lies the village of Selborne, made famous through the writings of its curate in the late 18th century, the Reverend Gilbert White, the founding father of natural history studies in Britain with his Natural History of Selborne. He created the famous 'zig-zag' walk up the Hanger, a striking escarpment supporting a woodland of towering Beech trees that can be seen from Mingledown Barn. Nearby, too, is Noar Hill Nature Reserve, a complex of ancient chalk pits supporting a rich variety of orchids and other downland flowers, plus a wealth of butterflies, from its Duke of Burgundies in May to its Brown Hairstreaks in late summer.
