Our Kuoni insiders reveal their top tips for wildlife spotting across the globe.

 

“Australia’s hidden gem –  the lovely island of Tasmania is where you can experience the Tassie Devils in their own environment and learn all about them at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. You can also enjoy a full day whale watching off the east coast of Tasmania where you can spot humpback whales, seals and many species of birds.”

“A balloon safari is a must when staying in the Maasai Mara, Kenya. The views were amazing passing over the bush and the rivers and seeing the animals running along beneath us. As the sun was rising we got our first sighting of a rhino grazing with her baby before spotting buffalo and zebra. We were up in the balloon for about an hour, which was followed by an amazing breakfast served right in the middle of the bush. It was an experience I will remember forever.”

“Peru has so much to offer, from the Natural Wonder of the World, Machu Picchu, to the Scared Valley where you will see herds of llama across the plains. If you are more into marine life then head over to Paracus which is Peru’s hidden gem or the Galapagos where you can encounter national marine parks and see giant tortoise, dolphins, seals, whales and giant lizards. Truly amazing.”

“When visiting Borneo,  ensure you have a camera with a good zoom facility so you can really capture everything that you see – you’ll really value this when you’re attempting to snap the orang-utans mid swing! Take lots of quick drying clothes, particularly if you are planning on heading into the Kinabalu National Park as it can be very wet.  I traveled in March which should be one of the driest seasons but alas the rain just kept on coming – so you’ll appreciate the option of dry clothes to relax in at the end of the day!”

“Firstly, your bag mustn’t be over 15kgs and must be a soft holdall. Any excess baggage can be stored. Colour is important on safari, all your clothing should preferably be neutral colours: khaki, olive etc. Avoid white, bright colours, dark colours and black. Camouflage is also a no-go. Also make sure you take and drink plenty of water whilst on safari.”

“The golden hours are an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset. Make the most of these stunning lighting conditions while on safari.”

“The Maldives offers a real no-news, no-shoes concept and the lovely island of Meeru offers amazing snorkelling from the beach where you will encounter reef sharks, stingrays and many species of tropical fish. You can also head out further to spot some wild dolphins.”
