Track Down the Big Five in Tanzania with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Pocket Binoculars, From £590
All of the ‘big five’ can be found in Tanzania’s national parks, with big cats such as lions particularly easy to track down. Primates also inhabit the country’s Gombe National Park, which is home to chimpanzees, baboons and monkeys. SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Pocket binoculars are well-suited for those travelling from park to park in Tanzania, thanks to the model’s robust aluminium housing and conveniently designed foldable bridge, which allows the optics to fit into even the smallest of bags and pockets. Along with an impressive 119-metre field of view, the binoculars are well-suited for those who wear glasses, thanks to the individually adjustable twist-in eyecups. Although small in size, the ergonomic binoculars don’t compromise on quality and offer unique optical excellence of the highest order in the compact range.

See Elephants in Botswana with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 Binoculars, From £1,730
More than 17% of the land in Botswana is dedicated to protected wildlife areas, including Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta. The preservation of ancient migration routes means the country is home to over 100,000 elephants, more than anywhere else in the world. For spotting elephants in Botswana’s Chobe River, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s EL 8×32 binoculars are the best choice when size and weight are important factors. The model’s unique wrap-around grip allows the binoculars to fit comfortably in an elephant spotter’s hands during long viewing periods and the 8x magnification offers the largest possible 141-metre field-of-view. The binoculars are available in green or sand-brown and offer users crystal-clear, colour-true images with razor-sharp contours. For more information, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.

Search for Bengal Tigers at Pench National Park in India with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion NOMAD Binoculars, From £2,070
Pench National Park in India was the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book’ and is unsurprisingly home to a wide range of animal species, including Bengal tigers and leopards. The park opens for visitors from mid-October, with winter being the best season to visit due to the pleasant weather conditions. For those who want to spot tigers in style, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion NOMAD binoculars have been designed with a deliberate emphasis on encompassing natural and authentic materials, including the binoculars’ vegetable-tanned leather armouring. Available in 8x or 10x magnification, the elegantly designed binoculars also feature stunning optics and will provide users with a field-of-view of 132 or 108 metres, respectively. To complement the aesthetic design of the binoculars, the CL Companion NOMAD come with equally outstanding accessories including an accompanying leather field bag and a detachable leather carrying strap, all packed in a laser-engraved case made from sustainably sourced oak.
