Day 1: Corcovado National Park
After more than 4 decades of protection, the wildlife of Corcovado park is unafraid of people & can be easily observed. Take a full day hike to Puma Valley - the trail follows the edge of the jungle & meets the Peninsula coastline. This is puma country! Prepare to enjoy some fortuitous wild cat viewings.
Day 2: Bluewater Adventures Southeast Alaska Wildlife Adventures Inside Passage Mv Snow Goose
The Fortress of the Bear originated in Sitka to rescue bear cubs & currently has 7 permanent residents. From the viewing platforms, watch the bears wander around, play in the water & eat. A naturalist will be on hand to explain the bear’s journey from the wild & the importance of rescue’s mission. It's a non-profit venture that relies on admission fees ($10 adult/$5 children) & donations to accomplish its mission to save the bears.
Day 3: British Columbia
The main goal of the Wolf Centre is to educate the public that it is inhumane to kill wolves. At the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre in Golden, British Columbia, you can take part in a 25-minute talk & get to meet the wolves. Photography fans can also walk with the wolves as part of the Blackwolf photography hike.
Day 4: Sawai Madhopur
Ranthambore National Park has reported it has a thriving tiger population of 70. Jump into a safari vehicle & start your quest to view wild animals. Tigers are solitary creatures; they see you but they don’t want you to see them. When you do see a tiger walk in front of you, sit & pose, or lean into a puddle for a drink of water, you know they are truly happy, relaxed & free.
Day 5: Khao Yai National Park
Within the park itself, you can spot all sorts of animals – gibbons, great hornbills, monitor lizards, even crocodiles! But the highlight of the park is the elephants. Of course, like with all wild animals, there is never a guarantee that you will see them, but the population of elephants in Khao Yai is becoming healthier, so the chances are high.
