We're enjoying some great sightings on our current five star special group Tiger safari. Every day we're seeing Tigers. April is a great time of year to view Tigers in India, so we have decided to run our special five star group Tiger Safari again in 2019. Click here for more information, and then get in touch via email. We can still offer early booking discounts, but as these trips are very popular we only have a few places remaining.
Clean water - a simple way for you to help a child
One of the community projects that we support in Africa
We are asking for your support to help underprivileged children from rural communities in the areas where we operate our safaris. Where the biggest issue is undoubtedly a lack of clean water. And the simplest way to do that is to supply children with a filtration water bottle. Our friends at Water to Go will donate one 500ml bottle for every 750ml bottle that you purchase. This simple device, filters and cleans dirty or contaminated water to provide a safe drink. Simply pour any water into the bottle and then drink clean water from the spout. Ideal for children in rural communities who very often don't have access to clean water.
Rural school with no clean running water
We have a very simple way for you to help. We are asking you to purchase a 750ml filtration water bottle using this link and the code ONTRACKDONATE. You have the option of purchasing the bottle for your own use, or better still, to re-donate to our cause. Water to Go will then give us one 500ml bottle for every 750ml bottle you buy. if you would like to re-donate your water bottle to us you can easily do this by entering our UK address in the delivery instructions when you make your purchase (see below).

We will then distribute the bottles to underprivileged children from rural communities from South Africa to Kenya, India and Brazil i.e. the areas where we operate our safaris.
Children form our Leopard Conservation Club in South Africa
Please help us in this worthwhile project. We aim to start small by targeting just 100 bottles and then who knows where this can lead.

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”.
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.
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.
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.
