From mountain gorillas to Komodo dragons, polar bears to Antarctica’s penguin rookeries, Exodus’ Wildlife Encounters 2013-14 brochure showcases more than 50 of the world’s most exciting wildlife experiences in every corner of the globe.
Sight rare species in their natural habitats, from whale and dolphin watching in the Azores, to seeking snow leopards in the Himalayas.
New for 2013 are brand new itineraries including Bears Of The High Tatras in Slovakia, delving into the Peruvian Amazon, and wildlife viewing in Southern Tanzania. As well as an expanded Galapagos offering with two new ships – a motor yacht and a luxury catamaran – on three, four, seven and 14 night expeditions. As part of its commitment to responsible travel, Exodus is also now in partnership with the RSPB, supporting their work on SAVE (Saving Asian Vultures from Extinction).Award-winning photographer and Exodus guide for over 20 years, Paul Goldstein says: “There are hundreds of companies purporting to offer ‘the best’ wildlife holidays: many will leave you brutally short-changed. A safari’s success is not about ticking off bewildered animals on a clinical checklist. The success is all about moments: the moment a jaguar drops its head to drink or a million guillemots bursting form their nesting sites as rapacious glaucous gulls prey over their high-rise dwellings. None of these moments are guaranteed, but if you have good guides, a flexible itinerary, don’t mind early starts and have plenty of time at least you give yourself a sniff of the grail.”
