On Track Safari News

Meet our UK guide Mark Warn

Your guide on our UK safaris will be Mark Warn who has been working as a Wildlife Ranger for thirty years and as Mark says “I still have an absolute and unconditional passion for my vocation. Dorset is one of the most magical and diverse areas of the UK and continues to deliver the magical experiences that I have been so lucky to observe throughout my career. Sharing these special moments with others gives me one of the biggest buzzes in my day to day working life, and my years of experience within the area enable us to target the wonderful species that inhabit this special place”.

UK Wildlife Safaris available now

A UK wildlife safari for those who would like to discover more about the the beautiful Dorset countryside. Will and Carol’s involvement with Dorset’s woodland and wildlife spans thirty years, during which time they  developed a network of local wildlife specialist guides who can unlock the often secret lives of the forest animals and birds.

On Track Safaris has exclusive access to private woodland, which offers our guests amazing wildlife experiences.

Our UK wildlife safaris are based in Dorset near the picturesque market town of Wareham. Where we have access to some of the most stunning and bio-diverse habitats in the UK including some of our most special National Nature Reserves the 'Jewels in the Crown' of UK Wildlife Sites. The mosaic of woodland and lowland heathland (a rarer habitat than rainforest) gives the Isle of Purbeck the title of being the most bio-diverse area of the UK.

We run our UK safaris from spring to Autumn, with each month bringing its own special events in nature.

Ten day budget Tiger safari without compromising on game viewing


Tiger Safari - 10 day - Value
Delhi - Bandhavgarh NP - Kanha NP - Delhi
This unique value safari starts and ends in New Delhi and visits Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks. These parks are situated in Madhya Pradesh in Central India and are undoubtedly amongst the best places in India to see Tigers in the wild. CLICK HERE to read the full itinerary

We are able to offer this value safari at a very competitive price, by utilising mid range accommodation rather than the five star lodges that we also have available. We have also included an overnight sleeper train journey from Delhi on day 2, together with a return domestic flight on day 9.
And, as you might expect from On Track Safaris, we have not compromised on the quality of daily game viewing. So, whether your preference is for mid range accommodation (as described below), or for more luxurious lodges and hotels (details on request), your game viewing experience in the National Parks remains the same.

Leopard ate the Badger

It isn't every day that you find a leopard feasting on a Honey Badger. Well that was the case on safari in Djuma last year. So what happened? It seems unlikely that a leopard would kill a Honey Badger, but if that isn't the case, then.....well,  the case remains open.

Night drive Leopards

Picture by safari guest Bruce Cardwell
A night drive in the African bush is a special experience. Especially when we encounter leopards roaming at night.
Probably above all other predators, leopards provide amazing contrasted night time photographs.
See for yourself. Join us on safari www.ontracksafaris.com

Uganda by boat and road

Getting around in Uganda often means we need to use specially adapted 4 x 4 vehicles that not only provide comfort when travelling but also when on game drive.
And when not travelling by road, we view game by boat. It's all part of the experience.
We have special deals on our ten day Ugandan classic safari. Just click here to email us to find out more.

The team at On Track Safaris has been providing wildlife safaris for amateur and professional photographers’ for over ten years. Our CEO Will Fox has produced and directed many wildlife photo shoots and TV documentaries, which enables us to offer photographers’ a unique insight into the African bush.
Our photographers’ safaris cater for photographers of any ability.  We combine the thrill of a wildlife safari with your passion for photography to offer the ultimate wildlife photography experiences.
These exclusive safaris start at Black Leopard Camp set within the magnificent Thaba Tholo Wilderness Reserve, followed by Rukiya Safari Camp located on the banks of the Blyde River in the Wild Rivers Private Nature Reserve. Rukiya is not only our safari base with an exclusive big five private concession within the Greater Kruger National Park, but is also a key location for our leopard research program. Following three days at Rukiya with our team, you will visit the nearby Klaserie Game Reserve, which is also in the Greater Kruger National Park, where we again have exclusive access to 25,000 acres of pristine big five country.
This safari offers superb opportunities to see and photograph the prolific variety of indigenous wildlife that are found in these area.  As our guests often say   “we want to see everything” and it is that ethos that has made our award winning South African safaris such a success.
Of-course we understand that photographers have a special approach to viewing wildlife, which is why our photo safaris are all about maximising time with wildlife. And for those who wish to learn more about field craft, our experienced bush experts will provide training in ‘walk and stalk’ techniques, enabling you to get even closer to wild animals, both in Africa and back at home.
Our South African safaris support local wildlife conservation projects, including our leopard research program operated by the On Track Foundation.
We cater for any specific needs you have, whether that be birding, big cats, general wildlife, hide photography, landscapes and sunsets. Whatever your speciality, we will do our utmost to offer you the best wildlife opportunities.
