When Cruising Get's Wild... !TICKET OFFER:

When Cruising Gets Wild…!

Get face-2-face with some of the most amazing animals on the planet and uncover a world of wildlife voyages at the UK’s biggest cruise travel show – The Telegraph CRUISE Show, Olympia London.

From tracking orang-utans in Borneo, getting up close with polar bears in Spitsbergen, photographing the BIG 5 in Africa to swimming with iguanas in the Galápagos Islands – wildlife cruising offers close encounters with some of the greatest animals on the planet.

It is not always known that cruising isn’t just about sipping cocktails around the pool and getting dressed up for formal dinners, as fun and lovely as that is, so we asked our exhibitors to create a list of incredible wildlife experiences to whet your appetite and here is a taster of what they have come up with:

Polar Bears, Walrus and Seabirds:
At the ends of the earth and far from the madding crowd, the Polar Regions are perhaps the last pristine wildernesses left on the planet. Explore the Svalbard Archipelago, a paradise of ice and tundra, inhabited by Polar bears, walrus and seabirds. This is one of the most popular holidays Exodus does and not without reason.
Exodus – 9 days from £2,500

Giant Tortoises, Iguanas and Penguins:
No matter how many wildlife documentaries you’ve seen or how many books you’ve read, nothing can prepare you for the thrill and wonder of being in the Galápagos Islands. For those interested in being immersed in natural wonder, Galápagos is simply the most extraordinary island archipelago in the world. Nowhere else can you experience such close encounters with remarkable animals like giant tortoises, marine iguanas, waved albatross, blue-footed and red-footed boobies, Galápagos penguins, and sea lions galore.
Furlongs Travel – 12 days from £4,902

Humpback Whales and Full-Bellied Puffins:
Listen to the explosive spout of a humpback whale as it breaks the surface of a clear blue ocean. See the comical flight of a full-bellied puffin as it tries to get airborne. Smell the salty landwash where the sea touches North America's eastern-most land and where First Light really is first.
Adventure Canada – 7 days from $3,195

Elephants, Hippos and Crocodiles:
The Chobe River supports an array of African game, plant and bird life, including one of the greatest concentrations of elephants on the continent. From a small boutique-style river boat you are likely to observe these mighty giants as well as hippos and crocodiles, and a variety of other wildlife gathering at the water to drink.
Zambezi Queen – 3 nights from ZAR12,000

Guillemots, Puffins and Razorbills:
BIRDQUEST - An exploration of the Islands of Britain with Chris Harbard aboard the Ocean Nova. The seabird islands of the western British Isles are the envy of the birding world, yet it is not easy to sample the wonderful diversity of their character and come face-to-face with sea-going inhabitants. This unusual expedition cruise will appeal to those who wish to explore our coastal waters, observe the marvellous seabird and marine life and walk across untouched coastal wilderness areas.
Noble Caledonia – 8 nights from £2295

Orang-utans, Monkeys and Gibbons:
The wild jungles of Borneo are some of the oldest undisturbed areas of tropical rainforest in the world. Borneo's biodiversity is unparalleled with hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles fish, and amphibians. You'll also meet the extraordinarily intelligent "Man of the forest", better known as the orang-utan the largest tree dwelling mammal, and the only great ape found in Asia.
Orion Expeditions – 10 nights from £6,365
