Big cat expeditions

Beyond Expectations.

   "We spent 3 weeks in Kenya with Big Cat.  Saw the big 5 and lost count of everything else. We also visited Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda... Wow! It took me months to go through all the photos. The drivers know their stuff. The camps were great and food top notch. I recommend this trip to anyone." - Dave D., Niagara, Canada

Trip of a Lifetime! 

   " What an amazing experience! The team at Big Cat Expeditions organized an action packed Kenyan safari for my family. We saw the big five and so much more. We finished our trip in Rwanda to visit mountain gorillas. I can not begin to say how life changing it was to have my family sitting feet away from a family of gorillas. Thank you Big Cat, you've got clients for life." - Stacey W., Ottawa, Canada

The Big 5, again and again and agian!

   " I had a great trip to Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) with Big Cat Expeditions. I had seen videos of people going on safari and spending all day driving around without actually seeing any of "the big 5".  Not so with Big Cat!!  Saw all the big 5 - more than once - and up close. Folks at home were amazed at how close we were to the animals.  It really paid off to be with people who understood where the animals were and when to see them. Having heard some horror stories about internet accommodation reservations which were overbooked - I was pretty glad that we booked through an outfit that actually has people on the ground. Top notch trip!"

Great India trip! 

   "We always wanted to travel to India, but didn't know where to start or who to trust. From  first contact with Big Cat Expeditions it was smooth sailing. They helped us every step of the way. We wanted an action packed Wildlife / Culture trip and it was from the moment we landed. The guide was amazing, Temples  were incredible and the wildlife was spectacular. We hoped to see one tiger, but ended with six total. Thank you  Big Cat expeditions" - Brain & AnneMarie K, Niagara Falls, Canada

Highlight after highlight!

   " Last October I had the great fortune to travel to Africa with Big Cat Expeditions.   What a trip it was - I learned so much about wildlife as well as the value of patience.  Big cat know their Africa!   On our adventure with Big Cat we traveled thru Kenya and Tanzania and saw more variety of wildlife than on my 2 previous African experiences.  Our guides certainly knew their Africa.  My personal highlights were-

1. Watching a leopard sitting in a tree and then sauntering down and walking directly alongside our vehicle.  Leopards are notoriously elusive.  
2. A lion staring directly into my eyes for about a minute when wandering around our vehicle
3.  Sadly, but inevitably, watching a lioness catching and  pulling down an unfortunate zebra to feed her hungry tribe.  Nature at work.  
4.  Guides that seem to be able to sight what we could not.
5.  The African people themselves.

   Very  happy to recommend Big Cat Expeditions!  - Joan T., Australia 

Tiger Mania!!!

   " Big Cat Expeditions created a custom trip for my wife and I to see tigers in India. I am a car graphics artist and have painted many tigers in my work. I have always dreamed of seeing a tiger in the wild. We met Edward Spera at his gallery in Niagara on the Lake, Canada. He helped us get this trip organized. We went to India hoping to catch a glimpse of just one tiger. Big Cat Expeditions put us in the right places at the right times and we saw tigers. Seven different cats over 2 weeks and now I can't wait to go back home and create. Thank you for opening my eyes to another world." - Jon and Chris, Sydney Australia

Thank you Big Cat Expeditions.

   " I am a wildlife and nature artist and I've always wanted to go on an African safari. After hearing that Edward Spera had started a travel company called Big Cat Expeditions, that custom designed these trips, I jumped on board. Edward and his wife Lisa gave me great information and created a mindblowing trip for me. I saw more than I could have ever imagined. Now I'm thinking tigers in India. " - Alex, Rochester, New York

A great trip again. 

   " I've been on 4 trips with Big Cat Expeditions and it keeps getting better. The knowledge of the guides and trackers is incredible. I love photography and there wer times I didn't know where to point the camera. Things were happening all around us.  I'm already booking my next trip" - Mike M., Hamilton, Canada

Beyond expectations! 

   " We had the most incredible time in Africa. We booked a trip with Big Cat Expeditions for my husband, he loves wildlife. I was along for the ride. His smile was fantastic the entire trip, but mine was even bigger. I didn't realize the impact this trip would have on me. We loved it." - Adam & Sandra N., Montreal , Canada
