Locally run wildlife & safari holidays

Yes, there are brilliant large safari companies that have been doing their thing for years. But there are also smaller, locally run organisations that run more intimate, almost personalised trips, tying into grassroots conservation, indigenous groups and so on. From bears in Alaska to exquisite Ethiopian birdlife, whale watching off Norwegian islands to canoeing the Zambezi, locally run wildlife and safari holidays are as up close and personal as you can get.
