You’ve watched, favourited and re-watched Planet Earth on Netflix, you can’t stop watching YouTube sloth videos, and your ultimate dinner party guest is everyone’s favourite celebrity grandpa, Sir David Attenborough. Sound familiar? Well birdwatchers, critter cuddlers, vegans, zoologists and any animal lover in between, have we got a roar-some adventure for you…
We’ve designed an animal inspired Round the World route showcasing iconic creatures in some of the most biodiverse locations the planet has on offer. Binoculars at the ready!
MOVES LIKE JAGUAR
First stop Kenya. The African savannah plays host to a helluva load of animals to feast your eyes on: over 100 mammals and 400 bird species call this expansive landscape home. Head out on safari and have a ‘circle of life’ moment spotting lions, giraffes, zebras, leopards, cheetahs, buffalo, rhinos the list goes on…
You’ve read about it, seen it on the tv and now it’s your chance to walk amongst the towering trees and feel the magic of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. A tenth of all the world’s species are found here so get ready to unleash that inner animalista and swim with pink river dolphins, spot toucans and monkeys, dodge multi-coloured frogs and know you’re sharing air space with sloths and jaguars. Pretty cool right?
Another day another animal-sighting opportunity. Not only is Australia home to some of the deadliest creatures on earth, it also has some pretty cute and cuddly ones too. Look up into the eucalyptus trees lining the Great Ocean Road and you might just spot yourself a Koala. Kangaroos are also common and, depending on season, whales can be seen frolicking off the shores of the south coast.
Whether it’s dodging a herd in what feels like a 100mph bus or heading out on safari in Tissa, we’d consider you a hermit if you DIDN’T catch a glimpse of an elephant in Sri Lanka! It’s a country that offers a little bit of everything. From jungle walks, safari excursions, diving hotspots in Trincomalee, mangrove river tours and blue whale watching in Mirissa.
