|The natural world, country life & pets / Wildlife: general interest
In a world where bucket list activities and once-in-a-lifetime experiences are more possible than ever before, it is the wilds of the natural kingdom and its majestic and often eccentric inhabitants that fuel the wanderlust. While African safaris might have long lured early explorers to witness first hand lions and elephants, giraffes and rhinoceros, today the opportunities to see animals in their natural environments spans the globe far beyond the kings of the jungles and plains.
From tracking jaguars in Brazil to swimming with whale sharks in Honduras, hiking in Transylvania s Carpathian Mountains in search of European brown bears to cruising the Azores to spot blue whales, the opportunities for exploration and adventure are endless.
Containing 100 carefully chosen destinations, Ultimate Wildlife Destinations will take readers on a journey across oceans and polar ice caps, rainforests and mountain peaks in search of the most astounding creatures on the planet.
