There is nothing quite like the feeling of observing an animal in its natural habitat. You suddenly feel more connected to nature and much more appreciative of the other creatures that we share this planet with. In this blog post, we are going to take a closer look at just a few of the wildlife holidays that you can put on your bucket list.
Seeing gorillas in the wild certainly isn’t something that is easy to do, but you can appreciate the fact that it is an experience that few other people have been able to enjoy. Rwanda and Uganda are the countries to visit to go gorilla tracking. When you come face to face with one, it is bound to be an experience that you won’t forget during your lifetime.
An African Safari
Most people who take an African safari go in the hope of spotting the ‘Big Five’ animals – lions, elephants, buffalos, leopards, and black rhinos. You could go for a jeep safari in East Africa or perhaps a self-drive holiday in South Africa or Namibia. Africa is a continent which is home to plenty of other creatures which are incredible to spot including hippos, giraffes, hyenas, and zebras.
There is nothing like the experience of seeing an enormous whale peeking out from the water, before emerging entirely airborne, and coming back down again with an almighty splash. Australia is a premier destination for this activity, so visit this page to find out more. There are plenty of tours which give you the opportunity to see these immense creatures in their natural habitat, and it is certainly up on many people’s bucket list.
Tigers are one of the most endangered species in the world, so spotting some of them in the wild is one of the most special experiences that you can have. India and Nepal are going to great lengths to preserve their remaining tigers within its national parks, and they are the best places to go so that you can ethically get up close to these magnificent beasts.
If you are looking for a part of the world where biological diversity is everywhere, the Galapagos Islands are the place to go. After all, Charles Darwin first began to form his theory of evolution right here. Many of the birds and animals found here cannot be seen anywhere else on Earth.
Polar Bears in the Arctic
The final experience which we are going to talk about is seeing polar bears in the Arctic. Since you will be travelling to a very environmentally unstable part of the world, you need to make sure that your trip is run responsibly, and, as you would expect, it won’t be cheap. Still, there is no doubt that this is an unforgettable wildlife adventure.
So, these are six more things to add to your bucket list, but each one of them is an unforgettable experience which certainly merits its place on the list.
