Wildlife Encounters

A GoKo wildlife excursion is specifically designed for you to get up close and personal with some of the world’s most incredible animals.

Whether you're after the thrill of walking amongst Silverback gorillas and Chimpanzees in dench jungles, whale watching in the warm waters of Asia, getting up close and personal with lions as they hunt for their lunch, or search for wild bears that are fishing for salmon on the river banks; GoKo has you covered.

Our vast array of wildlife holidays will ensure you enjoy wild and wonderful encounters in all four corners of the globe.

On our Ugandan holidays, you’ll track emblematic primates such as chimps and gorillas, while our Sri Lankan tours will offer sightings of whales, wild elephants, and much more.

In Tanzania’s captivating conservation areas, you could spend time in the presence of tree-climbing lions, elephants and over 400 different species of birds, whereas in the Kalahari desert of South Africa you can make a personal difference in our epic conversation experience that allows you to get up close and personal with the Big 5!

With GoKo, we know that the top priority for many travellers is to experience wildlife in the their natural habitats, therefore all of the below tours give you the opportunity to do so. On our tours, you will be able to learn more about the animals and photograph them on their terrain, whilst being led by a local tour guide who will share with you their knowledge and insight into the wonderful world of the animal kingdom.
