The thrill of wildlife travel: you can never predict what, if anything, is going to happen. Whether you're slip-sliding through a Rwandan jungle in search of gorillas or staking out a salmon-choked stream in Alaska waiting for a hungry grizzly bear, there's no guarantee you'll see either. Wildlife travel is supercharged with anticipation. It offers a privileged opportunity to immerse yourself in some of the world's last remaining wildernesses and, most important of all, it can provide a lifeline to the creatures themselves.


Zoologist and award-winning travel writer and photographer, William Gray has spent over 25 years tracking down the world’s best wildlife experiences. His travels have taken him from the High Arctic in search of polar bears to the Serengeti on the trail of the Great Migration. With Footprint’s Wildlife Travel he guides the reader on the ultimate global safari, providing all the information and inspiration needed to plan a dream wildlife trip.


Experiencing wildlife – not just looking at it – is one of the greatest pleasures of wildlife travel. It can so easily be a whirlwind tour: filling a ticklist, but depriving the soul. Wildlife travel is much more than simply seeing animals. It’s about slowing down to the natural ebb and flow of a wild place, taking time to understand what makes it tick. It’s about the small wonders that stop you in your tracks and the mighty landscapes that leave you feeling humbled. It’s about making a connection. And that, in essence, is what responsible travel is all about.
