Where to Go in the World for Animal Lovers

Keen to enjoy a trip focused on cuddling with adorable furry creatures and watching majestic animals thrive in their natural habitat? If so, here is a breakdown of some of the best destinations to choose for your next holiday, all ideal for animal lovers.


Offering the ultimate African safari experience, Tanzania is a hub for animal lovers everywhere. Whether you spend your time in the Serengeti National Park or Katavi National Park, there are countless creatures to see and admire including the Big 5, zebra, giraffe, leopard, waterbuck, hyena, and wild dog. Couple this impressive amount of game with authentic bushveld surroundings and the type of peace and quiet that you have probably never experienced before in your life, and you have a getaway that definitely won’t be quick to forget. For the lowest prices, be sure to book your safari experience via a website specializing solely in holidays in Tanzania, such as tanzaniaodyssey.com.


When it comes to marine life and unique furry critters that you simply don’t get anywhere else in the world, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Australia. Countless people travel to Sydney specifically in order to take part in whale watching activities year round. For a particularly amazing view, book your holiday during May to November when the humpback whales migrate from the Antarctic to northern Australia to have their babies. You can view the incredible migration from various national parks in Sydney or by booking a cruise or a short boat trip for a closer look.


Animal lovers who want to do their part for wildlife while on vacation will find plenty of purpose in Mexico, especially when it comes to tiny turtle hatchlings on the various beaches. These little turtles face countless predators and obstacles as they attempt to make their way back into the ocean. Luckily, there are a number of beaches across Mexico that encourage volunteers to help them on their journey and safely reach the sea. The best time to visit if this sounds like something you would like to do is from September to November each year.


As we all know, the beautiful Giant Panda is facing extinction. As a result, numerous refuges have been built to try to protect them and assist them in breeding. Tourists with a love for animals can visit and volunteer at these various refuges and help take care of the animals. In some of them, you can have direct contact with the pandas, even helping to feed them their favorite food: bamboo sticks!


Peru is the place to be if you would like to cross paths with hundreds of friendly llamas and alpacas. You will find them living peacefully in the mountains and they are generally very docile animals, but be careful. If they aren’t keen to be social, they are probably going to spit in your face. Approach with caution!

Now that you know where to find the world’s most stunning animals and wildlife experiences, it’s time to book your tickets. Happy travels!
