Animal loves- I am calling out to you! Do you have a passion for travel and have an overwhelming love for animals? Do you dream about going somewhere new and beautiful with amazing rare animals? Well this is the article for you! I have narrowed down the top 5 travel destinations to view some of the rarest animals on the planet! – Go Explore!
1. Sumatra, Indonesia
Home of the Sumatran Orangutan, Sumatra remains a top travel destination for animal lovers. With only about 7,500 Sumatran Orangutans left due to deforestation seeing them in the beautiful country of Indonesia should be one of your top travel destinations!
2. South Africa
South Africa is home to one of the most loved and sought after animals in the world… the African Elephant. Africa has done a good job at preserving this species but with just under 450,000 left in the wild we need to continue to do all we can to support and research these large magnificent creatures. Though they are not labeled as endangered they do remain a very poplar animal. South Africa is a beautiful country and one of the best places to view the African Elephant!
3. Kathmandu, Nepal
Nepal is home to the rare red panda and is another great travel destination. Though the pandas are not in Kathmandu most all tours start from this amazing city before heading into the mountains to begin their search for the red panda. With less than 10,000 red pandas in the wild this is a trip of a lifetime!
4. The Galápagos Islands
Just off the coast of Equador lies a beautiful island full of life and animals of course! I could spend hours naming them all but one of the most popular is the Green Sea Turtle. Swimming with these beautiful creatures are magical and it is something everyone must do in their lifetime! Also the endangered Galápagos Penguins call this island home as well.
Imagine spending your October in Canada sitting on the Hudson Bay under the northern lights as hundreds of Polar Bears line up to cross the ice. If you are obsessed with these amazing animals Churchill is your best bet for viewing these beautiful endangered bears!
