From horseback safaris in Africa to playing with monkeys in Borneo, there are so many wildlife holidays around perfect for you and your family to enjoy over Chinese New Year. Here are some of our favourite places to travel and witness so many animals in the natural environments.

SOUTH AFRICA – Go on safari tours, horseriding through the bush and guided bug walks whilst on holiday in South Africa. Watch the Big Five at home in their natural habitat and stay in some luxurious lodges along the way.

KENYA – With pristine beaches on the East coast and the great plains in the South, you should spend a few days on an exhilarating safari before lying back and relaxing on the coast.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA – Cuddle up to koalas and kangaroos when you visit Kangaroo Island- known as the ‘zoo without a fence’. For the more daring in the family, try shark-cage diving off the Eyre peninsular!

BORNEO – Although the weather is not 100% reliable at this time of year, Borneo is still one of our most sought after destinations. Visit the conservation areas home to many orangutans and spend time exploring the wild rainforests.
