Natural Wonders & Wildlife

It's one thing to learn about ecosystems in a book. It's quite another to see them up close and through the eyes of our guides, who are passionate about sharing their knowledge with travelers, young and old. A lot of our destinations are home to wildlife like you've never seen before – from 500-pound tortoises to golden-maned lions – you and the kids will be awestruck at all you’ll encounter on these Thomson trips.
