Dave and Jeanette Bax recently travelled with Wildlife Worldwide to South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. This was their sixth trip to the area, and it certainly hadn’t lost its magic.
Kafue was outstanding, such a huge and fantastic area. We were looked after very well and thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days there on the mobile safari. The river trips were a bonus, providing such a contrast with the dried river beds in Luangwa. We saw some different wildlife here, thanks to Tyrone… Read on
I arrived into the Yukon after having been in the ‘Greatest’ Bear Rainforest accompanying our 21st anniversary trip in the company of professional photographer and my great friend Nick Garbutt. I say ‘greatest’ deliberately because the Great Bear Rainforest - the last intact temperate rainforest on earth - is great in every possible way. It is huge, it is pristine, it is home to numerous wonderful species, and over the years it has become a second home to me - bears and all.
On return to Vancouver (from Bella Bella), together with Brian Jackman from the Daily Telegraph I boarded a flight to Whitehorse, Yukon’s capital. Canada is immense - the flight to Whitehorse takes just over two hours, and I arrived late at night and checked into my hotel. At check-in there… Read on
In the gathering gloom of dusk I peered intently at an untidy tangle of dry twigs and leaves 20 metres above me in the canopy. Some 40-50 centimetres across, it looked like nothing more than an accidental knot of detritus that has collected over time. An adornment of silvery spider’s webs added to the aged look.
Just above the tangle, through gaps in the canopy the first twinkling stars of night appeared. Then something moved. On the upper side of the tangle two large rounded shapes became visible - they were ears, followed by arms, body and a large bushy tail, as an aye-aye emerged from its nest.… Read on
In September 2013 Christine and John Scotcher stayed at Knight Inlet Lodge in British Colombia. There was certainly no shortage of bear and whale sightings.
Our unforgettable visit to Knight Inlet Lodge in September began with a short flight from Vancouver to Campbell River on the East Coast of Vancouver Island. A pleasant stay at Herons Landing Hotel ensured a good night’s rest and a hearty breakfast before we were whisked off to begin our… Read on

On Thursday 5th September, a team from Wildlife worldwide was joined by 100 guests at Marwell Wildlife Park in Hampshire for an exclusive private tour of the zoo. The evening started at 6 o’clock with guests being transported by road train, through the park to Marwell Hall for an introductory talk on the highlights of travel in Namibia.
Following this, smaller groups were accompanied by professional keepers for a tour around the park with the opportunity to see some of the world’s most exotic and rare animals! It was a fantastic opportunity to see animals interacting with keepers and to learn more about the species… Read on
