Watching animals and birds in their natural environment is one of the great joys of wilderness travel. Escaping the urban environment to witness polar animals such as penguins, seals, polar bears, narwhals, or whales is truly amazing and scouting for birds you’ve always wanted to see in the wild can be equally addictive. Spending time in the oceans swimming with majestic whales, witnessing a fever of manta rays, quietly contemplating orangutan behaviour, or the frenzied chaos of the sardine run off Africa, these spectacles will leave you totally awestruck.

Some of the world’s most knowledgeable ornithologists, marine biologists and animal behaviourists work with operators to provide you a unique experience in the animals’ local environment, and ensure you take home stunning photos of incredible interactions that most people only see on documentaries. Whether it be traveling to the seven continents in chase of your wildlife tick list, exploring the jungle for jaguars, Churchill for polar bears, mountain gorillas in Rwanda, South Georgia for king penguins, the Galapagos for giant tortoises, Palau for jellyfish, or Africa for the ‘big 5’, we have compiled the best way for you to connect with nature and the wildlife that live there.   

Scenes of African safaris, the Serengeti, roaming elephants and wildebeest migrations against a fire orange sky are the images that inspired numerous adventurers and explorers. Ensure you consider places like Botswana, Zambia and Namibia along with more famous locations in South Africa and Kenya. These are really immersion experiences and one you will never forget. Different operations offer varying degrees of comfort from bare-bones simplicity to super luxurious, but generally all involve a fair degree of creature comforts to ensure you have quality down-time when not viewing the wildlife.

There is such a vast array of experiences around the world for you to witness wild animals and birdlife in their natural environment, so spend time enjoying the search for your next adventure and highlight destination, then go and explore!
