We are into a time of the year wildlife enthusiasts pick gear up for another adventurous journey. If you are one of the wildlife enthusiasts, then this post might be of some help as in this post, we are going to list the five choicest places in the world where you will get to witness wild animals at their splendor.
#1. Serengeti National Park:
The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is the best place to spot the “Big Five” of Africa – a term which refers to African elephants, lions, black rhinoceros, African leopards, and African buffaloes. Another reason for Serengeti being the darling of wildlife lovers is the Great Migration where large herds of wildebeests and zebras migrate towards the Masai Mara during the months of June and July. Other popular attractions here are the enormous Nile crocodiles, impalas, giraffes, and African wild dogs.
#2. Kruger National Park:
Another great place to spot the “Big Five”, the Kruger National Park in South Africa is a self-drive game park. This means that visitors get to pick up maps at an entrance of the park, navigate themselves, take as much time as they want, and stop whenever they feel like. If you want to see animals and birds in great variety and numbers, I suggest you take the S56 to drive from Babalala to Shingwedzi. As most of your desired animals are nocturnal, a safari at night (at least once) is something you should not miss.
#3. Parc Omega:
Located in the province of Quebec and at close proximity to cities like Ottawa and Montreal, Parc Omega has been the favored spot of visitors who want to see Canadian wilderness. The main highlights of the park are the arctic wolves and timber. An all-year open 12-kilometer driving path means that you get to spot elks, bison, red deers and black bears from the safety of your car. You can also take delight in the park’s hiking and walking trails (obviously well-protected from aggressive animals).
#4. Bandhavgarh National Park:
The Bandhavgarh National Park in India is the best place for spotting the majestic Bengal Tigers in the wild. The park got registered in 1993 as a tiger reserve and it has the highest number of this endangered species in the world. If you are lucky, you might also catch a glimpse of hyenas, leopards, foxes and jackals while sitting on the back of an elephant.
#5. Kangaroo Island:
Kangaroo Island in Southern Australia is a great place to spot all kinds of animals. However, two species which deserve special mention in particular are the seals and kangaroos. While kangaroos are abundant, the Seal Bay Conservation Park and the Flinder’s Chase National Park are the places you need to visit in order to have a good look at the sea lions and New Zealand fur seals.
