China Mammal Tour
China Mammal Tour is a China based travel company specializing in mammal and bird tours across China, including hotspots such as Sichuan, Qinghai, Tibet, South-east and North-east China, Yunnan, Xinjiang, Hainan and more.
Though the company began with birding tours, mammal tours are now a growing speciality. A sample itinerary and information is here but China Bird Tour can organise trips anywhere in the country.
The company began in the late 1990s and were ground agents for Birdquest UK between 1999/2001 for their Tibet birding tours. They have gone from strenght to strength working particularly closely with Birdtour Asia and also working as local agents for nature-based companies including Royle Safaris; Ornitholidays UK; Travelling Naturalists; Spanish Nature S.L.; Zoothera Birding UK; Rockjumper Birding Tours; AviFauna; Zegrahm Expeditions; Saker Tour; and Apex Expeditions.
