6 Exciting Ways To See More Wild Animals

Generally speaking, all animals are spectacular, but there’s just something special about the wild ones that words cannot describe properly. Maybe it’s the fact that we do not get to see them on a regular basis, hence coming face to face with them is a truly extraordinary experience.

Unfortunately, the modern world hasn’t given its best to preserve all species. On a more positive note, there are still some wonderful destinations on our planet where you can come across these magnificent creatures.

If you’re yearning to have an intimate wildlife encounter with wild animals, then you should definitely take a look at our list below where we enumerated some amazing suggestions. Let’s check them out together!

Amazing Places Where You Can Watch Wildlife

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

When it comes to wildlife encounters, there aren’t a lot of places that are as enchanting as the Galapagos Islands. In case you didn’t know, they are home to some of the rarest and most exotic animals in the universe.

What’s sensational is the fact that out there animals actually outnumber humans. Depending on the island you decide to visit, prepare yourself to see various types of wildlife, starting from marine iguanas, giant tortoises, sea lions, penguins, and many more.

If you want to embark on this journey, you can do so by either opting for a land-hop tour or cruise. Additionally, the best time of year to go there is either June until August, or December until January.

During these periods of time, the sea is normally calmer, plus you’ll be able to easily find cost-effective tours and accommodation. Besides the land, you can also run across wild animals in the ocean. Out there you can opt for some interesting activities, like snorkeling, swimming with Hammerhead Sharks, or even kayaking. Now, if you select the third option, then make sure to purchase kayak sun shades because they provide amazing protection from the sun’s harmful rays which is extremely important during these activities. All in all, it’s easy to conclude that the Galapagos is for sure one of the most exciting places to see.

Kalahari Desert, Namibia

According to those who have visited this place, this was one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences they’ve ever had. The Kalahari is a wonderful dessert that’s surrounded by dried-out rivers and acacia trees.

Animals that you will get the chance to see in this region, include meerkats, hyenas, warthogs, lions, jackals, and a couple of species of antelope (like kudu, eland, duiker, gemsbok, steenbok, springbok, and hartebeest), along with various species of reptiles and birds.

Even though at first glance this desert may appear to be inhospitable, it actually offers nourishment for both animals and humans, in the form of watermelons and grasses.

Is There Anything Else That We Forgot To Mention?


For many people, this is one of the best places in terms of wildlife. From the moment you step into the Antarctic waters, you will immediately be surrounded by penguins, whales, elephant seals, and fur seals.

But no matter how appealing and inviting this may seem to you, bear in mind that Antarctica is definitely not for anyone. It can truly be harsh (for the less experienced explorers) and you will get the feeling like you’ve reached the edge of the world.

Why is that? Well, that’s because you will hardly get the opportunity to see any people, but mostly animals roaming freely. You will get the feeling that you are the first and last person who has ever visited it (even if you’re traveling with a group of people).

On the other hand, if you’re not bothered by this, then you will certainly have the time of your life. Each day is going to be different from the previous one because you will get the opportunity to walk amongst penguins, watch leopard seals eating, etc.

Moving On To The Amazon Basin

In case you didn’t know, only forty percent of the region drained by the omnipotent Amazon River is actually in Brazil. What’s spectacular is the fact that you can visit these tributaries and forests in other countries, such as Venezuela, Peru, Columbia, and Bolivia.

In addition, the Napo River (which is in Ecuador) is a place where you can hunt down eco-lodges that put tourists in the jungles and along the waterways to cast their eyes on the vivid local flora and fauna.

Yellowstone National Park, United States

This is one of the most popular national parks in the USA and it is home to black and grizzly bears, hundreds and hundreds of wild bison, wolves, huge waterfalls, as well as the world’s largest concentration of active geysers.

Speaking of bears, as previously mentioned, out there you will stumble upon two types of bears, black bears, and grizzly bears. What’s amazing is the fact that only the northwest Montana and Yellowstone Ecosystems have formidable grizzly bear populations.

When it comes to wolves, they can be found in northern Michigan, Alaska, northern Wisconsin, northern Idaho, western Montana, and northeast Oregon. Additionally, Mexican wolves (which are subspecies of gray wolves) have been again introduced to parkland in southwest New Mexico and eastern Arizona.

And Last, But Not Least – Peninsula Valdes, Argentina

If you’re an avid wildlife lover, then you should definitely put this place on your bucket list. Namely, this area is widely known for its whale watching, however, there are so many other interesting things to see besides that.

Beautiful animals, like sea lions, southern right whales, Magellanic penguins, and elephant seals all go there to have their young, which is why this destination is one of the best ones when it comes to wildlife in Argentina.

Besides these wonderful creatures, you will also get the chance to stumble across dolphins, orcas, guanacos, and many others. If you set your mind to visit Peninsula Valdes, then it would be advisable to do so from April to December or from September to November.
