1 Point Reyes-Petaluma Rd, Inverness, CA 94937, USA
I was on hike along the Estero Trail when I came across this brown pelican, sitting firmly, on a wooden bridge. I inched up towards it so I could have closer look at this beautiful bird. It didn't budge so I decided to sit down next to it to soak...
Save Place
We were on one of a several river journeys near Anavilhanas Lodge west of Manaus, looking for the expected dolphin, bird, or snake and right in front of us we find a sloth swimming across the wide river! Slow as molasses on land, but really not...
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...

The top wildlife viewing experience of my life. Hands-down. So wild, remote, unplanned...no other people, no other vehicles. Damaraland is my favorite region of Namibia - incredible scenery, geology, views, stars, and so few other travelers. Stay...
Save Place
Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana
Quad biking in the Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana is available from the Uncharted Africa camps - Jack's Camp, San Camp and Camp Kalahari. I stayed at Camp Kalahari (the most affordable of the three) and really enjoyed it's simplicity and charm. Fly...

Kowloon, Hong Kong
As a lover of all things market, as well as a diver and serious animal lover, I was beyond ecstatic to find out there was a goldfish market in Hong Kong. The market is situated in the Mong Kok area of Hong Kong's Kowloon. The market is a series of...

Ehlanzeni, South Africa
On a game drive in Londolozi Game Reserve, South Africa. Two adolescent male lions were 'treed' by a herd of approximately 250 buffalo. Buffalo don't kill lions (usually) but they do provoke and retaliate when they've been stalked by lions. This...

Save Place
Jacmel, Haiti
Walking up the road from Faith Orphanage n Jacmel to grab some 7-ups and waters when a goat walks right up to me. I don't know what it is the little goat was trying to say to me, but...the photo explains enough.
Save Place
Mae Suat, Sop Moei District, Mae Hong Son 58110, Thailand
I rode on this elephant through the jungle of Thailand! It sounds surreal but I really did it. The elephants are not normally used for tour, he belongs to the villagers but he can still roam on his own without being chained since he always...
Save Place

South Georgia Island, SIQQ 1ZZ, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
I discovered these posing elephant seals on a trip to South Georgia Island in the Atlantic. There was a lot of noise and a lot of fighting on the beach as the males fiercely protected their harems. Amidst the furor, these three quickly approached...
Save Place
Ag. Triada 741 00, Greece
It is not uncommon to find stray cats lounging throughout the peaceful courtyard of Agia Triada monastery. I love how this kitty's coat blends into the texture of the peeling, terra cotta walls.
Save Place
Foz do Iguaçu - State of Paraná, Brazil
When you think Iguassu, you think thundering falls, the Garganta do Diablo, or simply the soaking of unending mist. Perhaps one of my real highlights was sitting in a pool of mud before I even got to see the falls... Opting to walk the track from...
Save Place
Tanzania
I expected to witness the great migration, determined by the availability of grazing, of herds of Wildebeest and Zebra while visiting Serengeti National Park in Tanzania during the migration season. As the larger animals blanketed the vast African...
Save Place
Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa
I'm very fortunate to have friends who take me with to luxury bush lodges for a weekend break, away from the city. Because my friend knows one of the rangers there we had our own game van and even managed to go to limited access areas of the park....

You know those places; the ones that make you over-stay your visa and dream of never returning home? Well, this is one of those places. Straight out of a delicious “paradise found” novel, Koh Rong island off of Cambodia’s south-west shore is a...

Japan, 〒059-0551 Hokkaido, Noboribetsu, 登別温泉町224
I was truly amazed at the human-like behavior of supposedly untamed brown bears cajoling and waving at me. With a zoom lens, the Noboribetsu Bear Park in Hokkaido, Japan is a great place for taking close-up photos of bears without having to go...
Save Place

Swimming with a Maori Wrasse at Agincourt Reef located 38 kilometers from Cairns on The Great Barrier Reef. I highly recommend Silverswift dive boat out of Cairns or their sister vessel the Silversonic out of Port Douglas.

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...

This was taken at the Yerette hummingbird sanctuary, where all variety of hummingbirds gather, attracted by the plants grown there and the bird feeders. There are no signs leading to the place, so you will need a guide who knows about the place...

"You get to the end of the road . . . make sure you lock your car. Follow the beach down to a bunch of white tents. You can’t miss it.” We’d heard those words before, and we’d proved our inalienable right to, indeed, miss what could not be missed....
