Africa offers so many incredible wildlife adventures. Experiencing a game drive in one of the continent's world-famous game parks, you'll come across the Big Five – lion, leopard, rhinoceros, buffalo and elephant. Travel to Madagascar to meet the island's indigenous lemurs, or come face-to-face with endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda.
If marine wildlife is your focus, then travel to the Azores and you'll have a chance to enjoy short walks on these beautiful volcanic islands, as well as taking boat trips to search for whales and dolphins. Snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Maldives, where you can spot reef sharks, manta rays and clown fish, as well as stunning coral reefs.
For the ultimate marine wildlife holiday then the Galapagos Islands is a must. Join an Explore Galapagos cruise holiday and you can spend your days snorkelling with penguins and sea lions, or stop off on the islands to meet the giant tortoises and blue-footed boobies. With all of the regions, the wildlife-protected animals have no fear of humans, allowing visitors to get up close.
Searching for wildlife doesn't mean that you have to use up all of your annual leave in one go. Explore offer exciting short breaks to Finland and Romania to search for the European brown bear or to Belarus for a unique wolf watching experience. On an eight day holiday to Swaziland, for example, you can experience something truly unique with a walking safari searching for rhinos.
There is so much wildlife to discover, from Indonesia's Komodo Dragons to Costa Rica's sleepy sloths, searching for Bengal tigers on a jeep safari in India to searching for Polar bears on a once in a lifetime adventure.
