Wildlife & Wilderness

Visiting a zoo is not the same as voyaging into the wild. Let Down Under Endeavours take you to a world of epic landscapes and animal encounters. Kayak among fur seals in the quiet mist of New Zealand’s fjords or hear the lion’s roar on a South African safari. Dive the vibrant depths of the Great Barrier Reef or snorkel through the impossible blue of Fiji’s sea caves. Cuddle a koala or wombat or keep a careful distance from crocodiles in Kakadu. Rise early for a champagne breakfast with kangaroos in the Outback or hike through the night to spot the endangered Tasmanian Devil.  Swim with the wild dolphins in Kaikoura in New Zealand or travel to Perth to see the elusive Quokka.

Down Under Endeavours handcrafts luxury wildlife vacations designed around your wants, needs, timeframe and budget. To get a taste of what’s possible, check out these sample itineraries. Have a look, see what catches your eye, then chat to the Down Under team to custom-create your itinerary. Occasionally, we offer traditional “package” vacations focused on a special event. But those are the exception, not the rule.  Our wildlife vacations will be your trip of a lifetime and will be unique to you.
