Our expertise stretches beyond Africa and Latin America, so it’s a natural progression for Rainbow Tours to introduce new destinations where clients can encounter amazing wildlife such as polar bears, orang-utans, tigers, whales and more.” New Safari andWildlife Guide The newly-published Safari and Wildlife guide by Rainbow Tours contains 112 pages of inspiration and information which will steer travellers towards the right destination and trip for them. “Wildlife enthusiasts don’t necessarily pick their country first when it comes to planning a trip,” explains Matt Rushbrooke, head of product at Rainbow Tours. “Some might begin with a more general aim – a key species or an experience they want incorporate, for instance - so those are the elements we’ve put at the heart of the new guide.” “...encounter amazing wildlife such as polar bears, orang-utans, tigers, whales and more.” freebie
