GeoWorld Travel tours are primarily about geology, however where there is excellent geology there is often excellent wildlife to be found too. Tours that feature wildlife include: voyages to Antarctica and South Georgia; Namibia where elephants, rhino, lions, zebra and antelopes can be seen; Scotland where minkie whales, dolphins, seals, puffins, guillemots, fulmars and white-tailed sea eagles can be seen; South Africa where lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo can be seen; Svalbard and Greenland where polar bears and walrus can be seen and the USA where grizzly bears can be seen.
The following trips contain wildlife viewing:
Multiple voyages - on all trips to Antarctica you a likely to see a plethora of wildlife including penguins, whales and seals
A Geological Safari - we have the opportunity of seeing the whole range of African wildlife elephants, rhino, lions, zebra and antelopes. The wildlife highlight of the trip is the visit to Etosha National Park, one of Africa's most famous wildlife viewing destinations.
The Birth of Geology - we have the opportunity to see minkie whales, dolphins, seals, puffins, guillemots, fulmars and white-tailed sea eagles on our boat tour to Fingal's Cave. It is also possible to see seals and occasionally dolphins on our boat tour to Loch Coruisk on the Isle of Skye. Red deer can also be seen at sites we visit on the mainland.
(Future tour still under development) Gold, Diamonds and Mammal-like Reptiles - visits Karoo National Park where tortoises and snakes may be seen. In Golden Gate Heights National Park we may see wildebeest and antelopes. We also visits Piliansberg National Park which accommodates virtually every mammal of southern Africa and is also home to healthy populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo - Africa's Big Five.
Multiple voyages - South Georgia is sometimes referred to as the Galapagos of the Southern Ocean. There are literally millions of penguins and fur seals with many elephant seals and whales too.
