Tailor-made holidays - a unique journey designed just for you! At Wildlife Worldwide we specialise in tailor-making holidays. This is what we started doing fifteen years ago, and it is what we do now – it has been our philosophy right from the start, when the first Wildlife Worldwide brochure was produced. A tailor-made holiday gives you the freedom and flexibility to travel how, when and where you want to. You are unconstrained by the wishes of a group, and we can design your holiday so that you can do what you want, when you want. To make this process a little easier, our brochure shows a whole series of trips, each with names, and each with a specified length. These are all ‘tailor-made’ and they operate without minimum numbers. They are our ideas for your holidays. We have ‘been there and done it’ and we know what works on a trip and what doesn’t. As a result, many of our travellers choose to ‘book their holidays off the page’. However, all of the trips that we show can be adapted to suit your requirements. We can make them longer or shorter. We can chop bits out of one itinerary and into another. We can combine countries. And in all the countries that we operate, we can design completely different itineraries from scratch. What is a tailor-made holiday? How it works 4 F O R R E S E R V A T I O N S C A L L U S O N 0845 130 6982 The joy of a tailor-made itinerary is that your holiday is designed around your requirements and you are not restricted to the set itinerary of a group departure. Do you like the look of one of our suggested itineraries but would like to stay at alternative accommodation or include a few extra days and extend your holiday? Are you going on holiday to relax rather than spend your time packing and unpacking, moving from one place to the next? Are you celebrating a special occasion – perhaps your honeymoon, a special birthday or an anniversary? Why not enjoy each others company in privacy without being part of a larger group? Are you travelling abroad to stay with friends or family and wishing to add-on a safari, a cruise, or even some self-drive exploration? Maybe you only want to be away for a long weekend, or perhaps you have an extended amount of time to enjoy travelling and would like us to help with part of it? If you have a limited amount of time, group departure dates often don’t fit. You may well want a private vehicle, or the very best naturalist the region has to offer. If the answer is YES to any of the above, then a tailor-made holiday is the perfect solution! 1. Read through our brochure and decide where it is you wish to travel to – the chances are that you already have a pretty good idea! Hopefully our brochure will whet your appetite for doing one or two other things as well. 2. If you like the look of one of suggested itineraries then you can book it ‘straight from the page’ either by telephoning one of our consultants or by going onto our website (wildlifeworldwide.com). Of course, you are also very welcome to come and visit us at our offices in Bishop’s Sutton (give us a quick ring first though just to make sure that an expert in your chosen area is going to be there when you arrive). 3. If you like the look of our itineraries but they don’t quite fit the bill (perhaps you want to stay in different lodges, or extend your stay, or even visit completely different locations) then give us a call or send us an email. Our highly experienced consultants will discuss your ideas, and of course throw in a few of their own, and then design a holiday for you. We will tell you where the best places are to go at the time of year you wish to travel, and we will give you the best advice on the places to stay.

If you are not completely happy to begin with, then we will discuss the itinerary again, and refine it so that you are happy with the arrangements prior to booking. 5. Once you have made your booking we will confirm your holiday and send you our pre-departure pack with advice on climate, clothing, the best field guides and thoughts on photographic equipment. All you need to do is look forward to going away on holiday! 6. Once you are on your holiday you will be exceptionally well looked after and (unless we tell you otherwise) you will be met and transferred from place to place so that you are never left to your own devices. Local guides will accompany you on any pre-arranged sightseeing and game-viewing to ensure you get the most out of your holiday. All of our team at Wildlife Worldwide are enthusiastic and passionate about wildlife and all the destinations we feature. They are all incredibly well travelled and as a result, have first hand experience of the countries and properties in the brochure so they can tell you what it’s really like. Our knowledge of worldwide destinations enables us to not only combine areas within a country and countries within a continent, but also enables us to put together transcontinental and round-the-world itineraries. Mixing and matching elements of our holidays is easy and we are only too happy to oblige. The options are only limited by your imagination and of course your budget! Here are a few ideas to whet your appetite. These combinations do work, we have organised them recently… Worldwide airline schedules and flight routings now make these combinations easier and as trans-continental flight costs continue to fall, they become more and more attractive! Classic Southern Africa: Combine Cape Town with a visit to the magnificent sand dunes of Sossusvlei in Namibia. Continue to the Okavango Delta in Botswana for some fantastic game-viewing, before relaxing for a few days in Livingstone, Zambia where you also have the opportunity to view the splendid Victoria Falls. South American Experience: Following a visit to the Amazon and the Pantanal in Brazil, enjoy the Iguazu Falls from the Argentinian side before continuing to the Valdes Peninsula, home to Elephant Seals, penguins and whales. Revel in the magnificent glacial scenery of Torres del Paine in Chile before experiencing a total contrast in the Atacama Desert. Round off your holiday with a cruise around the Galapagos Islands. Eastern Promise: View Tigers in India before travelling to Nepal to spot the elusive and endangered Greater Onehorned Rhinoceros in Chitwan National Park. Continue to Borneo to see Orang-utans and fabulous rainforest birdlife before flying to Australia to enjoy a visit to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. A Round-the-World Wildlife Dream: Enjoy an African safari before flying to Australia and driving along the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne. Continue to New Zealand to go whalewatching before embarking on a cruise to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. Disembark in Argentina and explore the magnificent scenery of Patagonia. Whilst we have a series of small group scheduled departures throughout the pages of our brochure (look out for the GROUP SYMBOL which indicates a group tour), tailor-making holidays is our speciality.
