Who doesn't love a furry face?! A collection of some cute ones around the world and unique experiences with them.
Save Place
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.
Save Place
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...
Save Place
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
Regarded as one of the best zoos on the planet, a unique feature of the Singapore Zoo is the lack of fences to be found anywhere on the property. Exotic wildlife from all corners of the globe are allowed to roam freely throughout the facility,...
Save Place
Machu Pichu, Peru
We were among the first 50 or so people into Machu Picchu in the morning and the fog completely set the scene. It really made you feel like you were in a lost city and helped you understand how it could have been lost for so long.
Save Place
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
View from the sky trams coming back to the ferry after a trip to Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

708 Jesmond Rd, Fig Tree Pocket QLD 4069, Australia
The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary gives you an up close view of all of Australia's wildlife. Feed a kangaroo, have your picture taken with a koala. Fun for the whole family.
Save Place
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...

Hato Corozal, Casanare, Colombia
This is Reserva Natural Hato La Aurora, in the Colombian eastern plains. Here you can disconnect your senses from the hectic rhythm of the city, You can discover innumerable species of birds: herons, eagles, lapwings, macaws and toucans. These...

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’...

The Bahamas
One of the best kept secrets in The Bahamas is the fact that there are more than 700 islands. There's much more to see than Atlantis and the mega-resorts of Nassau. Take The Exumas, for example. The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 islands south...

Látrabjarg, Iceland
The cliffs of all cliffs, Látrabjarg, are home to birds in unfathomable numbers. This westernmost point of Iceland (and Europe if Greenland and the Azores are not counted) is really a line of several cliffs, 14 kilometres long and up to 441 km...

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...
Save Place
Corcovado National Park, in my opinion, is Costa Rica's number one highlight. Nothing can prepare you for this remarkable experience in the tropical rainforest. Don't let the complexity of getting there steer you away. It's all part of the...
