Unforgettable Experiences for

Nature Nuts

Natural world wonders

Nothing quite sets the heart racing like witnessing nature first-hand in all its glory.

You never forget the first time you see an elephant in the wild; the same can be said for a tiger, or a whale. They’re creatures of such majesty that to enter their kingdom, to sit silently and observe them on their terms reaffirms your place in the natural order of things.

People who have encountered gorillas in their natural habitat often talk of the emotion it evokes and those who have stood in the forests of Mexico, feeling the air hum as millions of monarch butterflies take flight, have sensed the spirituality of the Aztecs. In addition, almost all our journeys directly support in-situ wildlife initiatives, so in choosing to travel to these destinations of natural wonder you are directly supporting the conservation of our planet.

The Classic Safari Company was founded on the tonic of nature and we continue to bring you some of the finest natural wonders on Earth with respect and integrity.
