Great Holiday Destinations to See Amazing Animals

One of the best things about going on holiday is always the incredible people that you meet, though for the animal lover, any good trip needs to include some quality time checking out the animals. If you feel like you’ve seen it all, one of the following places is sure to have something new for you.


More known for its luxury
Doha hotels than for exotic animals, this tiny island provides a great opportunity by way of the Doha Zoo. While hosting all the regular zoo animals like lions and tigers, this zoo also plays host to one of nature’s more amazing creatures, baboons. Obviously not native to this area, they live in a well built and considerate enclosure, and attract thousands of visitors from around the world each year.

This country of exceptionally friendly people has all the beauty and luxury you’d want from a great holiday destination. It also provides a good chance to see an amazing nearby animal welfare project, the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. An easy day trip from Fiji, this incredible centre is home to between 60 and 80 orang utans and is located in a spectacular virgin rainforest. These amazing animals are brought in with a variety of health problems and are rehabilitated and released into the wild as soon as possible. If you have never seen an orang utan, be sure to have this side trip included in one of your
Fiji holiday packages.

Africa is an animal lover’s paradise and a Kenyan safari is a great way to see the Big 5, lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos. There is nothing like seeing these animals in the wild, and the locals know all the best times and places to find them. Doing a safari doesn’t have to mean roughing it either, with safari tours available to suit every possible budget.

If you want to get a good look at one of the world’s largest and most dangerous animals, the northern Manitoba town of Churchill is the place to go and get up close to a polar bear. Every year between October and November, polar bears from all around come to the edge of Hudson’s Bay and wait for it to freeze over so they can begin their hunting of the ringed seal. Get on one of the Churchill based tours and get an up close look at these enormous and beautiful creatures.

One of the countries blessed by the Amazon, this is a place for those who want to see something different. The jungle here is home to the sloth, jaguar, iguana, and of course the toucan, not to mention thousands of other birds and animals. There is no shortage of tour operators here so go with people who know the jungle to be sure you make it out alive.

The world is full of truly amazing animals, and each part of the globe has its own special treats. Get to some of these spots and be amazed by the creativity and diversity of nature.
