Three destinations to enjoy wildlife and nature

Taking adrenaline and safety into consideration, we have chosen three wildlife destinations considered the best. If you are in for wildlife and adventure, these are the places that you should definitely put on your to-visit list.

  •  Kenya

Probably the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Kenya are savannas with elephants and lions. But there is more to Kenya than only dry land. There are many lakes, mountains, deserts, rainforests, and beaches waiting for adventurers to enjoy intense experiences. The country has over 50 national parks and protected areas that house their incredible biodiversity. Ecotourism Kenya supervises all ecotourism activity to guarantee your safety.

 

  • Costa Rica

Grab your pen and note: Twenty-seven national parks, 32 protected zones, 11 forest reserves, 15 wetland areas and mangroves, 58 wildlife refuges, and 12 other reserves. Costa Rica is practically a synonym for ecotourism.  This “Oasis of Peace” has it all.  If you need an adventure of a lifetime, then know that Costa Rica is one of the top 20 countries in the world with the highest biodiversity.  The country’s wildlife protection plan is a worldwide pioneer and top in Central America.  Habitats include deciduous forest, rain forest, cloud forest, and mangrove forest.  They are house to an extensive numbers of animal species that include howling monkeys, sloths, visually appealing frogs, crocodiles, jaguars, and much more.  The fame of Costa Rica as a destination for ecotourism might place reserved areas in danger.  However, the country is promoting self-sustained ecotourism, assigning 25% of their territory to protected areas.

 

  • Palau

Palau is very famous for its diving destinations. It has all a diver wants on the near continental shelf.  Featuring more than 500 species of coral and over 1,500 species of fish, this is a place that guarantees a mesmerizing encounter with nature. The location of this island (western corner of Micronesia) has kept the place from massive tourism.  The locals are working hard on preserving the place in great shape for the future. The Palau Conservation Society is in charge of protecting 12 reserved areas and help protect the island’s delicate balance.
