Few experiences are as magical as seeing wonderful animals in their natural habitats or in sanctuaries where they are protected and well cared for. And it's hard to resist talking in Sir David Attenborough's hushed tones on one of our wildlife holidays. An Africa safari is the classic way to see the big game, including lions, elephants and giraffes, but you'll find stunning creatures on every continent. Other options include the chance to see polar bears in the wild, whales swimming off the coast of South Africa and orangutans swinging through the trees of Borneo. Or how about visiting the Galapagos Islands, just off Ecuador's Pacific coast? It was here that Charles Darwin saw animals including giant tortoises and iguanas and was inspired to write down his revolutionary theories on evolution. Wherever you choose to go, you'll be just as inspired, and go home with memories that will never be forgotten.
