Wildlife Holidays: Experience the Raw Beauty of the Natural World First-Hand

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2010) - Nature enthusiasts have traditionally booked their own holidays and trips to wildlife sanctuaries, but with a wide range of packaged wildlife holidays on offer from operators across the UK, more travellers are opting to make the best use of structured wildlife holidays.

There is a comprehensive selection of wildlife holidays and destinations for UK travellers to choose from this festive season, with operators such as Saga Travel offering packages to India, Spain, the Amazon and Borneo, to name but a few. These holidays are designed to appeal to the novice traveller and the most experienced jetsetter alike.

The 'Tigers and the Taj' tour from Saga Travel allows guests to visit Delhi, Agra and Ranthambore to experience India's wildlife first-hand. Travellers get to search for the elusive Bengal Tiger and other exotic Indian species in some of the country's most famous national parks and sanctuaries. These include the Sharatpur Bird Sanctuary and Ranthambore National Park.

Birdwatchers too will find something to their taste with a birdwatching trip to the Costa Blanca on the Spanish Riviera. A package holiday to the Isles of Scilly will allow travellers to admire birds and wildlife in their natural habitat; with the wildlife-rich islands of St Agnes and Gugh being notable highlights on the itinerary.

Few things are as memorable as a close encounter with the largest mammals on the planet, whales. Saga Travel offers guests the opportunity to marvel at the Sperm and Baleen whales near the Azores, in the North Atlantic Ocean, as one of their unique wildlife holidays.

Home to more than half of the fauna and flora found on earth, the Amazon Basin is one of the most impressive – and possibly the most important – eco-system anywhere on the planet. The best way to experience the Amazon is aboard a boat with Saga Travel. Cruising deep into the rainforest, Saga's Amazon tours allows passengers to marvel at the life on the riverbanks and in the water.

Wildlife holidays are a great alternative to a traditional holiday at home during the festive season. These richly rewarding experiences provide the ideal opportunity to spot some of the planet's rarest fauna and flora, while enjoying a relaxing holiday break.
