A safari tour in Asia is an unforgettable experience for you and your family that brings you face to face with elephants, leopards, sambar crocodiles and many others.

Besides safari tours, there are many other ways to immerse yourself in Asia and discover it’s unique flora and fauna. Hike in the jungle of Bukit Lawang in Sumatra or cruise down the river in Borneo to watch the orang-utans in their natural habitat. Cruise from Flores to Komodo and swim in the sumptuous seabed blessed with beautiful corals which the manta rays, turtles and fish call home. A walk across the island of Komodo is likely to be peppered with close encounters with the Komodo Dragon. Stroll through the terraced rice fields of Vietnam, Bali or the Philippines and discover the many species of butterflies and birds. Head over to Sinharaja in Sri Lanka or Sulawesi National Park in Indonesia to observe one of the smallest animals in the world: the tarsier. What would a trip to Asia be without it’s mischievous monkeys? You don’t need to go far to cross paths with these cheeky creatures: a visit to a temple in India, Sri Lanka or Bali will bring you into their home and you can watch as they hunt for food – but keep an eye on your belongings as they seem to enjoy wearing sunglasses and using iPhones!
Asia is famous for animals like the Indian elephants and the Bengal tigers, but have you heard of these lesser known creatures? Whilst trekking in Ladakh you’ll likely meet a dzo, a cross between and yak and a zebu. In Bhutan you may see a takin, whereas in Indonesia you’ll be transported back to dinosaur times as you cross the road with Komodo dragons.
