If you've ever marvelled at David Attenborough's nature documentaries and wished for a little more than a couple of sparrows and next door's cat in your back garden, there's hope to be had! Pack your binoculars, travel to one of these nature-filled countries and come face-to-face with oodles of wonderful wildlife in its natural habitat.

Kenya

Kenya and wildlife go hand in hand. Migrating herds of wildebeest, flamingos in their thousands, the elusive 'Big Five' and even the odd endangered species: this East African country is an explorer's dream. 

Come here for the safaris and nature preserves, where sightings of wildebeest, giraffes, baboons are all part of the package, and stay for the picturesque palm-fringed beaches that line the long, eastern coastline.

Don't miss: Masai Mara Game Reserve - a wildlife sanctuary where sightings of lions, cheetahs, African elephants, zebras and hippos are almost guaranteed.

Australia

Australia is famous for housing some of the world's most fascinating creatures, many of which are endemic to the country and can't be found anywhere else!

Joining the iconic kangaroo, koala and wallaby are the platypus, wombat and Tasmanian devil, not to mention over 800 species of bird. And that's just on land; underneath the surface of Australia's waters, over 4,000 different types of fish flit between shelves of colourful coral.

Don't miss: The Great Barrier Reef. Snorkelling or diving around this 2,300-long ecosystem is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As you swim through shoals of colourful fish, keep an eye out for turtles, porpoises and sharks.

Costa Rica

It may be small, but what Costa Rica lacks in size it certainly makes up for in diversity. Cramming in over half a million species, this Central American paradise is easily one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world, housing 4% of the world's entire estimated species! 

The rainforests and nature reserves here rustle with life. Tread softly for your chance to see sleeping sloths, technicolour red-eyed tree frogs, scarlet macaws and – if you’re lucky – a handsome, prowling ocelot. 

Don't miss: Tortuguero National Park. Famous for protecting the largest green turtle beach in the Western hemisphere, this national park is cut through with freshwater lagoons teeming with monkeys, toucans, iguanas and even the odd crocodile.

Tanzania

Tanzania's outstanding natural beauty and huge array of wildlife make it a top destination for animal-lovers. Almost a third of the land here is protected, providing habitat for scores of species, including lions, hippos, elephants and zebras. 

Above everything else, Tanzania is famed for its wildebeest migration - the largest mass movement of land animals on the planet. Witness this phenomenon - and much more - on a Serengeti safari and watch the sunset against a beautiful backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak. 

Don't miss: Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Standing on the rim of a collapsed volcano, the park's Ngorongoro Crater is one of the few places where the endangered Black Rhino still thrives.

Alaska

Who needs zoos when you have Alaska? There are very few places that let you spy brown bears snatching salmon from waterfalls or humongous whales lunging out of the water, but a visit to the USA's largest state can grant you both.

Alaska certainly doesn't do wildlife by halves. Bald eagles, grizzly bears, mountain goats and moose make up just a small portion of the spectacular species that roam freely through land, air and sea. 

Don't miss: Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Covering 3.3 million acres of rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, wild coastlines and sheltered fjords, visit here for a chance to see puffins, sea lions and - if you're in the right place at the right time - a breaching humpback whale.

Brazil

Blessed with a generous portion of the world's largest tropical rainforest and river, Brazil is one the most bio-diverse countries on Earth.

The Amazon Rainforest alone is home to around 1,300 bird species, 3,000 types of fish, 430 mammals and a whopping 2.5 million different insects. Take a riverboat cruise and search for elusive caiman crocodile and pink dolphins before venturing into dense jungles and flooded forests, keeping an eye out for macaws, monkeys, hummingbirds and electric eels.

Don't miss: Ilha de Marajó - one of the world's largest river islands. Rich in wildlife, it’s here that you can spy water buffalo, colourful wading birds, caimans and piranhas.
