Canada & Alaska

Specialist-led bear safaris, from Grizzlies in British Columbia to Brown bears in Katmai and Polar Bears in Alaska

If you're looking for opportunities to see the world's bears up close in their natural habitats then look no further

Drawing on Olly Williams' 30 years of experience traveling with the leading experts in these areas we have put together a set of trips to get you into the right place at the right time

The sheer scale of the large bears is bewildering - the heaviest ever Polar Bear weighed in at over 1000Kg and the even larger Brown Bear at slightly more than that. These are animals whose bulk and power puts the African Cape Buffalo in the shade and makes the big cats look diminuitive.

Over 30 years Olly Williams has explored wilderness from Alaska to British Columbia seeking out the very best specialists for each of the bear species in pursuit of his art. As a result we are now able to offer a series of trips each defined with an explicit focus on seeing - and gaining an understanding of - bears in these areas. 

From tracking Grizzly Bears in the hemlock forests and Alpine wilds of British Columbia to travelling by private expedition vessel to find Brown Bears in the remote Katmai National Park or traveling with our highly experienced Inupiat friend and guide to witness Polar Bears gather on the shores of the Beaufort Sea awaiting the formation of sea ice.

Enjoyed EVERY second of an action- packed two weeks in Kenya. Asante Sana👏

"This was my fourth safari booked with Natural High and, as previously, it surpassed my expectations. Vanessa’s Itinerary was spot on - the three camps were very different but all were spectacular with food to die for, wonderful staff, friendly, knowledgeable and great driver/guides. I could go on and on - it was perfect, and the icing on the whole trip was tracking, and finding a pack of Wild Dogs - the reason for going😃
Already saving for a 5th trip and will DEFINITELY book with Natural High - they are the Best!"

Morroco was a pleasant surprise

"This was certainly not our first trip with natural high.
As any other trip, organization was great, ie pick up, vehicles, local guides, food, all well done.
I now have a different opinion of the country and people."
