Whatever your favourite animal was as a child, there’s a chance you’ll get up close and personal with it on a safari trip. From the savannahs of Kenya to the cloud forests of Costa Rica, the world’s animal kingdom is yours to explore with the help of expert guides. Intimate talks with locals and the chance to sample regional cuisine further elevate these insider-led itineraries beyond the ordinary. Ready for a really wild expedition? Let these TRIPS by Culture Trip show you fantastic beasts and where to find them.
1 . From the Rift Valley to the Maasai Mara: the Ultimate Kenyan Safari
Fill your animal-loving boots to the brim on a safari in Kenya. On this seven-day tour, you’ll explore Kenya’s portion of the Great Rift Valley, which stretches all the way down from Lebanon through East Africa to Mozambique. Next, it’s into the Maasai Mara, home to the Big Five and preferred superhighway for the annual wildebeest migration. Aberdare National Park and Lake Nakuru are ready to dazzle you with Cape buffaloes, African elephants and more. Game drives will make up the bulk of your expedition.

2 . Cape to Cape: South Africa's Wildlife, Winelands and the Garden Route
Here’s a fun challenge: see how many different species you can spot between South Africa’s Western and Eastern Cape. With 10 days to rack up the views on land and water, you should have no trouble crafting a list that includes the Big Five and beyond. We’ll go ahead and throw you a freebie: check penguins off of your list when you go stand-up paddleboarding alongside them. Finally, the private game reserve of Amakhala – at the tail-end of the Garden Route – opens up the chance for range-led rhino sightings and more.

3 . Treasure Island: Ancient Temples & Wildlife Encounters in Sri Lanka
They say an elephant never forgets, so be sure to greet them with a smiling face when you come face to face in Sri Lanka. These majestic beasts are waiting to welcome you to Minneriya and Yala national parks. But don’t forget their friends: monkeys, crocodiles, leopards and other animals are hanging around these parts, too. This 12-day adventure around Sri Lanka is an excellent safari experience, mixed with a little abseiling, hiking and Ceylon tea-sipping for good measure.

4 . Himalayan Escapes and Wildlife Encounters in Nepal
If you thought that all Nepal had to offer was mountains, then allow the wildlife to distract you. Go on safari during this 11-day tour, searching for elusive Bengal tigers, Indian leopards and single-horned rhinos. Chitwan National Park has much more to see like crocs, bison, 500 species of birds and sloth bears. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a reel full of wildlife photos to share with a local Everest summiteer when you return to Kathmandu.

5 . Pura Vida: a Jungle Safari of Costa Rica
A jungle safari through Costa Rica is one of those trips that have wildlife watchers and would-be Attenborough’s rushing for the “book” button. In between coffee tastings and surf lessons in Tamarindo on this nine-day tour, you’ll assail the Monteverde cloud forest in search of sloth bears on a moon-lit excursion. Salute the Pura Vida lifestyle with a sunrise yoga session or evening hot-spring soak. But don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for capuchins around the cone of Arenal.
