When you are looking for a different type of vacation, one that combines adventure, wildlife, and perhaps an interest in photography, then there is nothing more exciting than booking a wildlife photography vacation in some of the world's most beautiful places. Here are just a few examples of places you might want to check out for the best experience in wildlife photography.
Algonquin National Park, Ontario, Canada
North America has some fantastic scenery brimming with wildlife, and one of the best places to spot moose, loons, deer, and more is the beautiful Canadian Algonquin National Park located in Ontario. You can choose a guided tour in which you can even learn photography techniques to improve your photos, or you can opt for a self-guided tour. The park is open year round, and it is one of the best places in Canada to check out the changing leaves during the fall.
South Africa and Kenya
Africa is a fantastic destination to check out wildlife that you won't see in the United States unless they are in a zoo. If you are looking for African wildlife in their natural habitat and love getting up close and personal with lions, leopards, and elephants, then there are at least two places that you can choose for a great photographic vacation.
South Africa offers the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sands. If you are a fan of large prides of lions, or leopards are on your list of must-have photographs, then you will find no better place to find them. Sabi Sands in the Greater Kruger National Park has one of the highest populations of leopards in Africa.
Kenya offers the spectacular Maasi Mara. During the winter months in Kenya, the great migration brings millions of wildebeest and zebra into the area, along with the existing population of large crocodiles, lions, elephants, leopards, giraffe, and cheetah.
Yosemite National Park
One of the most beautiful parks in the United States is Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is the site of a very famous gold rush, and you can still traverse the areas that made history. You can walk through the famous Sequoia Forest where there are some of the largest trees in the world, or check out Glacier Point and look for the abundance of birds and wildlife that make this park home. Get your cameras ready for black bears, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, snakes, mule deer, and a multitude of squirrels.
