Chimp Tracking in Uganda

The series kicked off with an explosive episode following the leadership battles of chimpanzees on the edge of the Sahara, which involved tracking the chimps on foot and avoiding wildfires in the dry season.

For your chance to see chimpanzees in their natural habitat, our tailor-made Uganda Gorillas, Chimps & Game tour takes you into Bwindi Impenetrable National Park - one of the best places in the world to see chimps.

Emperor Penguins in Antarctica

In the second episode of the series, the BBC team set off to film Emperor penguins forming huge, protective huddles on the frozen wilds of Antarctica - during which the film crew spent almost a year in the extremely challenging environment.

Enjoy a glimpse of life on this rarely-visited continent on our Ultimate Antarctica Adventure tour, which includes a 10-day cruise aboard an ice-strengthened expedition ship to the Arctic Peninsula. Watch for several species of penguin with RIB boat excursions and landings, and spot species of whale from the ship.
