Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris

Our mission at Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris is to create life-changing wildlife experiences around the world.


For nearly four decades we have designed trips that provide maximum time out in nature to experience and photograph wildlife. Our goal is to inspire travelers with the values of conservation and education. Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris grew out of Doug, Gail, and Ted Cheeseman’s passion for exploring, protecting, and learning about the incredible wildlife and environments found around the world. To spread this contagious passion wide, we lead unsurpassed tours with the goal of providing a higher standard of wildlife travel under the guidance and knowledge of the best leaders available.

Come watch wildlife with us! Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris’ distinctive worldwide tours travel to destinations unique for abundant and photogenic mammals, birds and nature. We emphasize maximum field time and action-packed wildlife photography during the best season at each destination. Hand-picked leaders and local guides combine amiable personalities with extensive knowledge of each region. All our tours provide a non-smoking policy in small groups. As a small company, we provide a personal touch and attention to every detail – just as we have done for over thirty years. We are dedicated to delivering the best possible wildlife encounters to you. Join us for an amazing experience!
