Wildlife

Wildlife experiences during your Latitude South vacation don’t mean zoo’s and petting tame animals. They mean truly extraordinary native Australian and New Zealand animal encounters – with the birds, the ground and tree dwelling mammals, and the reptiles and marine life of these magnificent lands, 55 million years in the making.

With Latitude South, your interactions with these amazing creatures will be encounters of delight, awe and education rather than exploitation. Experience them how nature intended – in their own natural habitats, in the wild places of Australia and New Zealand.

Latitude South’s unique wildlife experiences are achieved by matching you with our unique, hand-picked specialist guides who understand and celebrate the behaviour of the animals of Australia and New Zealand so that your viewing opportunities are maximised without disruption or damage to these precious animals and their sensitive environments who call Australia and New Zealand home.

It's in our hearts...
