What is the Big Animals Experience?
For over forty years, Amos Nachoum and his has been leading small groups of adventurers to every corner of the globe to discover the exhileration and serenity of being immersed in the wild with the Earth’s most magnificent creatures.
Amos and all the guides at Big Animals take great pride in delivering the best possible experience for both the guests and the animals. Each expedition is carefully scouted and timed to give the best chance for peak animal presence, but also to ensure the safety of the location and the activity, we’re proud of 100% safety record than we are of our ability to find the animals.
Some encounters — swimming with polar bears or crocodiles —may seem to push the envelope of reason, but safety is our prime concern in developing our trips, and out in the field it is the priority of all our associates and operators. We work with leading academic naturalists, and local wildlife experts to fully understand the environments and the behaviors of the animals we interact with. Scouting expeditions are conducted before trips are offered to the public.
