Penguins, penguins, penguins. They are everywhere in Antarctica and it doesn’t take long to become immune to their cute and almost human ways. But what is never lost is the magic of standing in the midst of a massive penguin colony, listening to...

There are several types of seals in Antarctica, including the Antarctic Fur Seal. Once hunted for their hides, the fur seals are now thriving in Antarctica and number in the many millions. Part of the reason for this population explosion is...

Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar
The weird and wonderful pile of rock, known as Gibraltar, is worth a day-trip if you are visiting Andalusia, Spain. There are plenty of strange sights: the airport runway crossing the main street, a concert hall inside a cave and miles of tunnels...

Red Sands Rd, Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar
You've probably heard of Gibraltar a few times. An industrial island, oddly still under the British crown, the shortest gateway from Europe to Africa - just over 13 miles. So short, in fact, that on clear days, you can see as far as Tangiers. It...

The lion cub was licking my hand as if he were a puppy!

3505 W State Route 260, Camp Verde, AZ 86322, USA
I've always had a problem with zoos, but Out of Africa Wildlife Park is different. Privately owned and away from city-life, this wildlife park allows its animals and guests to encounter one another on a different level. Hold a white python, feed a...

Jyatha, Kathmandu 44600, Nepal
In Nepal there are monkeys everywhere, it is fun to hang out at the temples where they seem to congregate most and observe their behavior, so human like and so fun to watch.

Seal Bay Rd, Seal Bay SA 5221, Australia
One of my top must-do things for Australia was to see a kangaroo in the wild. After a short road trip, that was checked off my bucket list and then changed to feeding one. We were lucky enough to arrive at Parndana Animal Park, where there were...

Circuit de la palmeraie, Douar Abiad, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
No trip to Marrakesh is complete without a camel ride, right? We took a short taxi ride from the medina to La Palmeraie, a palm grove about 20 minutes from the city center. Off the main road of La Palmeraie were guides here and there, waiting with...

Ali Barbours Rd, Diani Beach, Kenya
Residents of Diani Beach on the Kenyan coast must have a good laugh when the camels are brought out: travelers trip over themselves to ogle them. Something about seeing camels on a white sand beach in Kenya sends a clear message that you’re not in...

80 Mandai Lake Rd, Singapore 729826
Singapore Zoo has been recognized as a leader in creating naturalistic habitats since its opening in 1973, using concealed moats to separate animals from visitors and incorporating a local reservoir into the landscaping. There are dozens of themed...

Machu Pichu, Peru
This month marks the hundred-year-anniversary of the "re-discovery" of this Inca citadel by Hiram Bingham. Machu Picchu deserves its clichés--'place of a lifetime,' 'bucket-list destination'...'mystical'...'amazing'... Sometimes, it's okay...

Thornybush Private Nature Reseve, Hoedspruit, 1380, South Africa
Remarkably relaxed, the female cheetah lifted her head from the grass as our game vehicle drew near. Five cubs were playing king of the termite hill, pouncing upon each other. Our morning game drive from Tangala Lodge in the Thornybush Game...

Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088, Australia
Travelers should visit Taronga Zoo as much for its harbor views as for the 4,000 resident animals (who see them all day long). Ferry 15 minutes from Circular Quay and take an optional Sky Safari cable car, included in the ticket...

708 Jesmond Rd, Fig Tree Pocket QLD 4069, Australia
I had one goal for the trip to Australia: hugging a koala. This was a little more difficult than you might think; it's only legal in Queensland province, and there are strict rules about how long the koalas can work per day and how much rest...

Cruising around the Galapagos, there's no shortage of wildlife and photographic opportunities. But this one moment was something special. Our boat anchored at sea, and as we ferried onto shore I realized that those weren't giant barking boulders...

6061 Tiger Rd, Breckenridge, CO 80424, USA
It's one thing to ride in a dogsled. At Good Times Adventures, near Breckenridge, Colo., groups take turns mushing the dogsled. Whether at the helm or in the sled, it's easy to feel the power of these Siberian huskies. At 40-70 pounds, each can...

Türkenstraße 29, 80799 München, Germany
Miss your kitty or always wanted one? Head to Cafe-Katzentempel for a purr-fect (we couldn't resist) cup of coffee or a light vegetarian lunch and all the cat cuddles you can handle. Home to four rescued cats, the café is the first of its kind in...

Japan, 〒381-0401 長野県下高井郡山ノ内町平穏6845
I left tropical Southeast Asia for Japan in the dead of winter for one reason - to see snow monkeys. I'd always seen pictures like the one above, of zen macaques in steaming hot springs surrounded by snow, and had no idea how accessible they were...

1019 Ventnor Rd, Summerlands VIC 3922, Australia
Port Phillip Island is known for two things – V8 racing and the colony of Little Penguins (Fairy Penguins) that descend upon its shore each evening, but there’s a whole lot more to see and experience on the island. Get face-to-face with Australia’...

Látrabjarg, Iceland
Látrabjarg is home to millions of puffins, but you must have a good day for taking photos and most importantly must be available during the evening. During the day they are on the ocean looking for fish. Our time there was very rainy and extremely...

Floreana Island, Ecuador
Galápagos travelers are often amazed to find themselves approached by sea lions—especially juveniles, whose playful curiosity can seem almost puppylike. When they see a Zodiac nearing their beach, sea lions will sometimes rush into the water to...

It's not just the country's largest national park: The 417-square-kilometer (161-square-mile) Corcovado National Park could be described as Costa Rica's Amazon given its remarkable biodiversity. The trees here can soar higher...
