Get closer to nature, the Intrepid way.

From the jungles of India to the islands of the Galapagos, our small group tours take you to the heart of nature. From elephants silhouetted against an Africa sunset to orangutans swinging in the treetops high above, these trips get you right into the heart of their world, offering an unforgettable chance to spot the kind of animals you might have only ever seen in books or on TV. With expert local guides joining you along the way, you'll stay in a range of accommodation almost as memorable as your animal sightings – from safari lodges to wilderness camps, these are truly wild experiences. 

Above all we make sure that these interactions are done in a responsbile way and with the greatest level of respect. We believe that wild animals should be viewed – with no contact or interaction – doing what they do best: living in the wild.

Wildlife highlights

Travellers in an Overland vehicle taking photos on the Serengeti

Search for the Big Five in Tanzania

On safari, it’s all about getting as close as you can to the elusive Big Five – the African elephant, black rhino, Cape buffalo, African lion and African leopard. Pack your camera and keep your eyes peeled to the grasslands as you travel in a custom-built Overland vehicle on the trip of a lifetime.

A traveller snorkelling with a sea lion in the Galapagos

Isolated island encounters in the Galapagos

As far as face-to-face wildlife meetings go, few places come close to the other-worldy islands of the Galapagos. At Isla Santa Fe you can strap on a snorkel and take a dip alongside the friendly sea lion population in crystal-clear waters. You’ll also be privy to parades of iguanas progressively prowling the beaches like a scene from a tiny Jurassic Park.

View trip

Travellers with gorilla in Uganda

Visit wild gorillas in Uganda

Climb through the rugged mountain terrain of Bwindi National Park to encounter these rare animals in their natural habitat. Be mesmerised as you watch them eat, sleep, groom and play – the giant silverback surveying the scene as the smaller one’s play like children. Watching their movements is like seeing a mirror image of yourself.

Travellers walking in Sepilok rainforest in Borneo

Get the wild life in Borneo

From crocodiles, macaques and cheeky proboscis monkeys spotted on a Kinabatangan riverboat safari, to meeting the patients at the centre for injured and orphaned orangutans in Sepilok, the steamy jungles of Borneo call to wildlife lovers.

Being a wildlife-friendly traveller

From doing your research to never using animals as a photo prop, there are a few easy ways to become a wildlife-friendly traveller. Join Intrepid co-founder Geoff Manchester and Lek Chailert, the founder of Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, to find out more about Intrepid's ban on elephant rides and what you can do to help protect wildlife on your travels.

Reviews

Responsible travel

At Intrepid, we believe that it’s our responsibility to help preserve the planet for the next generation of travellers and the communities – and animals – that call these places home. It's one of the reasons why, in 2014, we became the first global tour operator to ban elephant rides on our trips after we funded eye-opening research by World Animal Protection. Read more about our stance on animal welfare below.
