Join us on an adventurous tour of this little-known but wildlife-rich country, in search of some iconic mammals amongst jaw-dropping scenery.

The undoubted highlight of this trip is the very realistic chance to see Snow Leopards, without needing to climb to uncomfortable altitudes or camp out in deep snow. We will spend much of our time up in the foothills of the Altai Mountains, where sharp-eyed local trackers help to increase the chances of a sighting, and where the presence of ecotourists makes a positive contribution to the conservation of the mountains’ wildlife.

Other exciting mammals we will be looking for during our time in Mongolia include the famously ‘grumpy’ Pallas’s Cat (present throughout the country), wild Przewalski’s Horses at their original reintroduction site not far from Ulaanbaatar, shy Siberian Ibex and Argali up in the mountains, large herds of grazing Mongolian Gazelle perhaps attracting the attention of the elusive Grey Wolf, the bizarre Mongolian Saiga in its last refuge in the flat, arid plains of western Mongolia, the inquisitive Corsac Fox, and a plethora of pikas and voles, jirds and jerboas.

Along the way we are sure to find some exciting bird life, including such mouth-watering specialities as Pallas’s Sandgrouse, Mongolian Ground Jay, Mongolian Finch, Güldenstädt’s Redstart and White-naped Crane. The short Mongolian summer is already ending in August, and the south-bound migration of birds from across Siberia could bring almost anything our way.

For those with a spirit of adventure, Mongolia is a destination that promises some fantastic wildlife rewards.
