Our selection of wildlife photography holidays in Asia

Hokkaido is undoubtedly David’s star location of our nature photography trips to various parts of Asia, but other parts of the continent are firm favourites of Pui Hang, & feature heavily in our wildlife photography tour portfolio, from the tigers & leopards in India, notably in the reserves of Bandhavgarh, Kanha & Bera; to the rich & varied wildlife of Sri Lanka.

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is home to a vast number of species, our photography holiday enables you to spend a week in this amazing location, seeking photographic opportunities with almost 380 species, these species fly from distant places like Siberia & Central Asia specifically in winter. Migratory birds at Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary include several species of Cranes, Pelicans, Geese, Ducks, Eagles, Hawks, Shanks, Stints, Wagtails, Warblers, Wheatears, Flycatchers, Buntings, Larks & Pipits.
The Bengal Tiger is a feature of both our photography holidays to Kanha National Park & Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, but the wildlife in these natural parks is so much wider than the Bengal Tiger, often including deer, birds, antelope & much more besides.
When you think of India, you instantly think of the tiger, but like Bharatpur, the Little Rann of Kutch is a delight for those wishing to capture images of birds & other lesser-known species, including the wild ass & desert fox. Our photography holiday to Bharatpur also includes a pair of days at Blackbuck National Park; Blackbuck National Park also known as Velavadar National Park a beautiful sanctuary created for saving the Blackbucks.
Japan, what haven’t we said before about Hokkaido that can’t be said again – Japan & particularly Hokkaido is just amazing for photography in the winter, perfect for you if you want to capture images of the Steller’s & White-tailed Sea Eagles on snow, Red-crowned Cranes dancing together, Ural Owls huddled together in trees or the Whooper Swans on a frozen lake.
No photography holiday to Japan in winter is complete without a visit to the Snow Monkeys – although we would be first to admit that you don’t need to spend too many days there, it would be crazy to miss out on the Japanese Macaques & their thermal pool.
Finally, Sri Lanka, this is a photography holiday that features so many species, our Sri Lankan Wildlife Photography Holiday includes boat trips to search for the elusive Indo-Pacific Humpbacked Dolphin & the massive super pods of Spinner Dolphins, Sperm Whales & possibly Orcas, Short Finned Pilot Whales, Risso Dolphins, Brydes Whale & other marine species. Wilpattu for Leopard & Sloth Bear, Yala for the leopards & other jungle wildlife. River cruises to see the Saltwater Crocodiles, nighttime spotting of sea turtles & the opportunity to photograph blue whales from the air.
