For centuries, big cats have been a source of fear and fascination. The Egyptian culture was famous for its devotion to the cat, whilst jaguars were represented in the belief systems of several indigenous societies throughout Latin America. And, as we all know, to their cost, tiger and tiger parts have been mythologized in Chinese culture for centuries.
Nothing raises the pulse quite like the sight of a lioness stalking her prey across the plains of sub-Saharan Africa, the elusive snow leopard patrolling snow-capped mountains or the sight of a tiger sauntering through the forests of Central India. Since our inception in 1989, Steppes Travel has been running insightful and groundbreaking itineraries to give our clients unparalleled big cat sightings.
