Birds, Bears and Belugas Safari

Canada   |   7 Nights

Your Safari

Price from £10910 pp.

The Birds, Bears, and Belugas safari in July and August combines the thrill beluga whale watching with a Churchill Wild signature “on the ground” safari of summer polar bear viewing. With a backdrop of tundra alive with flora and fauna, this is a diverse and unique program. Aside from the belugas and bears, you’ll have the opportunity to see a whole host of other wildlife on this trip, you may see caribou, fox (red and Arctic), wolves, moose and birds galore. In fact, it isn’t unusual for birders to see 100 species over the course of their adventure. Also keep your ears open for the sounds of other sub-arctic wildlife, including wolves howling in the distance. Seal River Heritage Lodge, located 60 kilometres by air from Churchill, Manitoba, will be your home away from home for this exciting week. Known as the Polar Bear and Beluga Whale Capital of the World, this area is also the best place to see large congregations of beluga whales as thousands of them calve in the protection of the Hudson Bay each summer. Both bears and whales, along with the thousands of birds, will be in your backyard-literally.
