There are a lot of reasons to travel all over the world. Some people want to see amazing landscapes, others want to experience other cultures and meet new people, others simply want to be able to try something totally new and different. However, for some people, there’s one thing and one thing only that makes any trip truly worthwhile: the wildlife. Getting to discover and meet animals and creatures from new places all of the worlds that you’d never otherwise come into contact with is one of the very best experiences in the world. With that in mind, here are a few perfect travel destinations for any animal lover.
It’s strange just how many people treat the wildlife in Australia as the punchline to some kind of joke. There’s this strange idea that Australia is just full of giant, horribly deadly animals that will attack you as soon as look at you. This is pretty heavily overstated. Oh, make no mistake, here are some truly deadly animals in the Outback, but that’s just a part of nature and nature is something that Australia has in spades. Whether you’re looking to head out from Alice Town into the outback to find some of the creatures in the desert or you’d rather take one of the whale watching tours from Brisbane, Australia is an amazing place for anyone who loves exotic animals. Maybe just keep your distance from some of them!
There are plenty of things to recommend the Bahamas, from the golden sands to the amazing waves to the incredibly relaxed and friendly people. But if you’re an animal lover, there’s one place that you’ll want to go more than anywhere else. That place is The Exumas. Why would you want to go to this place so badly? Two words: pig beach. That’s right, in The Exumas you get the blue skies, clear waters, golden sands, and swimming piggies! You can book a boat tour and spend some time with the pigs while they take a dip in the water and relax in the sunshine.
The amazing thing about the Galapagos Islands is just how diverse their ecosystem really is. If you want to be able to discover whole different varieties of animals within a pretty small area, then this is the perfect destination for you. From the giant tortoise to the blue-footed boobies (no laughing) and more, you’re almost certain to see something unique and fascinating. Plus, if you catch a boat to some of the smaller islands you’ll be able to have a much more personal and unique experience, free from other tourists, so it’s just you and the amazing inhabitants.
No matter where you go, you’re almost certain to see some fantastic wildlife. Of course, it’s important to do a little research on things like conservation and protection in that area. After all, many animals are endangered, and the last thing you want is to end up doing something that could put them at risk.
