Saïga is the wildlife and nature journey activity of Secret Planet.
Set up in 1996 in La Rochelle, Saïga is a travel pioneer in the preservation of biodiversity. We wish to share with you our passion for the discovery and observation of the natural world.
Alongside leading experts and local naturalists who will share with you their experience and knowhow, your journeys will be inspirational. Scientists, nature preservation experts, wildlife photographers and sketchers, local guides: their shared ambition is to take you with them in the tracks of the animals they are committed to.
We offer observation journeys to discover wildlife for the first time or again, and to marvel at the captivating environments in which they live. We also offer expert-guided journeys accompanied by specialists who will share with you their expertise and unique experience of the species they are committed to.
We are constantly seeking new journeys to offer you, in small groups, to enable you to encounter extraordinary animals and, sometimes, the men and women who protect them or live close to them.
