Tailormade 5 Wildlife Top-Spots

Added 30 Mar 2016
Tailormade 5 Wildlife Top-Spots
 

Wildlife can be seen in most destinations around the world from national parks to cloud forests, from jungle reserves to private conservation projects, and the popular Masai Mara to the unforgettable Galapagos Islands. At Explore Tailormade we offer a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities, so we thought we’d share with you our top 5 wildlife locations:

Amazon wildlife

1 The Amazon Rainforest – Brazil, Peru and Ecuador The Amazon is the biggest rainforest in the world, with over half of its area located in Brazil alone. The river flows through seven countries, so the variety of flora and fauna on offer is vast. Home to around 30% of the world’s animal species, the Amazon can be explored from comfortable jungle lodges to simple or luxurious houseboats. Look for toucans, macaws, caiman, giant river otters, pink river dolphins, tiny lizards, frogs and much, much more.

 Botswana wildlife

2 Okavango Delta - Botswana The floodwaters that arrive at Botswana’s Okavango Delta originate in the highlands of Angola and cover an area of 15000 sq km. When the waters arrive in the dry season huge numbers of game migrate here, making it one of the premier safari destinations in Africa. Visit Moremi Game Reserve on a 4WD safari to see elephant, giraffe, zebra, ostrich, lion, leopard and wild dog on the flood plains, or explore smaller private reserves on foot or by mokoro (dug-out canoe) to see fish eagles, kingfishers, cranes, egrets and Bradfield's hornbill among the 400 species of birds.

3 The Elephant Valley Project - Cambodia Located in Cambodia’s eastern province, Mondulkiri, the Elephant Valley Project provides care, rehabilitation and conservation projects for domestic elephants. Guests can visit for the day or stay up to five days monitoring the elephants in the jungle, volunteering and learning about the forest, community, conservation and mahouts.; an experience that will not be forgotten quickly.

Namibia wildlife

4 Etosha National Park - Namibia In 1907 Etosha was the first national park to be established in Africa. An area of arid grassland and saltpans the national park is home to huge herds of zebra, springbok, hartebeest, kudu and elephant. After a good rainfall lagoons can be seen with flocks of flamingos and pelicans, while at night black and white rhinoceros can be seen at the waterholes around the lodges. Big cats are also a highlight in Etosha, including lions, oryx, cheetah and leopards as well as giraffe and hyena. As there is so much game on offer, Etosha is a great park to visit on a self-drive basis.

5 The Galapagos Islands – Ecuador A year-round destination where prehistoric-looking tortoise roam the highlands, marine iguanas bask in the sun and Galapagos penguin zip through the water, each island of the Galapagos has something different to offer. Whether you’re interested in sea turtles, Galapagos fur sea-lions or blue-footed boobies this is a wildlife lovers adventure.
