See the spectacular butterfly migration on a holiday in Mexico

The world’s most wonderful wildlife spectacles

Take wildlife watching to the next level and seek out a spectacular wildlife experience you’ll remember for a lifetime. Often colourful and always magical, these dazzling displays will leave you lost for words as creatures - both great and small - feed, court, fight and migrate.

 

Monarch butterfly migration, Mexico

Each autumn, millions of monarch butterflies make the annual long-distance migration from their breeding grounds in the United States and southern Canada to warmer wintering grounds in central Mexico's forests. The striking orange, black and white butterflies travel between 1,200 and 2,800 miles or more in what is thought to be the most highly-evolved migration pattern of any known species of butterfly.

 

Visit Alaska and see the brown bears fishing in their natural habitat

From early summer, prolific numbers of salmon return from their oceanic feeding grounds and head upriver to spawn. As they hit rapids and leap they make easy prey for grizzly bears. Large numbers of huge brown bears gather to feast on the salmon at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, Alaska. Bears are typically seen from mid-June until the end of the summer.

 

Feel a part of the wild when you see the great migration of the Serengeti

A journey to East Africa to watch the great migration across the plains of the Serengeti is widely regarded as the trip of a lifetime. Over a million wildebeest - accompanied by hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelle and eland – migrate, seeking fresh grazing and water. The exact timing of the migration varies each year depending on rainfall patterns, but the key Grumeti River crossing usually occurs between May and July.


Mass exodus of the bats in Sarawak

Bats of Deer Cave, Sarawak, Malaysia

 

Deep in the heart of Gunung Mulu National Park on the Malaysian island of Borneo, a daily wonder occurs - the world’s most impressive bat gathering. The vast limestone cave is home to millions of bats that live high up in the cave’s ceiling. At dusk most evenings a large colony - over three million wrinkled-lipped bats - stream out of the colossal cavern en masse in an impressive ribbon-like formation to hunt for insects in the night sky.

 

See the baby turtles hatch on a holiday to Costa Rica

Sea Turtles hatching,
Costa Rica

In a remarkable feat of nature, female marine turtles instinctively return to the exact beach where they were born to lay their own eggs. Costa’s Rica’s beaches – on both the Caribbean and Pacific side of the island - provide primary nesting sites for four species of Sea Turtle – Leatherback, Green, Hawksbill and Pacific Olive Ridley. From November to early January, watch baby turtles emerge from nesting holes and make their first run to the ocean.
