Snorkel with whale sharks in Mexico
This wildlife experience is the top of our list. There are plenty of places to snorkel with these gentle giants of the sea, but Holbox Island off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is one of the best.
Watch jaguars in the Pantanal
Jaguars are elusive creatures. These apex predators are excellent hunters and can be seen wandering along the river banks in the Brazilian Pantanal in search of prey.
Volunteer with orangutans in Borneo
Sadly, orangutans are critically endangered due to habitat loss and the illegal pet trade. The Great Projects run a multi-award-winning orangutan volunteer programme which works to protect these magnificent creatures.
Hot air balloon over the great migration
Could there be anything better than floating over the Serengeti looking down over tens of thousands of migrating wildebeest?
Helicopter to emperor penguins in the Antarctic
Few people get to walk in the footsteps of the great explorers to the Antarctic. Even fewer get to see a huge emperor penguin colony that requires a helicopter to reach.
Walk with giant Galapagos tortoises on the Galapagos Islands
Lonesome George maybe gone, but there are still giant Galapagos tortoises in the wild. Up in the highlands of Santa Cruz it’s possible to walk (albeit slowly) with these huge reptiles that can live over 150 years.
