Top Wildlife Sites of the World






How many have you visited?

A perfect Christmas gift for the expedition cruiser in you family

By Will & Natalie Burrard–Lucas

The natural world never fails to amaze, with its beauty, ingenuity and magnificence. Over a million wildebeest migrating across the plains of the Serengeti in pursuit of rain, male Emperor Penguins huddling together for two months without food during the Antarctic winter to incubate their eggs, or hundreds of macaws gathering to eat clay on the banks of a river in Peru to neutralise the toxins in their diet are just some of the awe-inspiring phenomena that are taking place out there in the world we live in. The biological diversity that surrounds us on Earth is undoubtedly the greatest treasure that we have.

Just what are the most amazing spectacles that every wildlife enthusiast has to see during their lifetime? Top nature photographer and intrepid traveller Will Burrard-Lucas has spent years visiting far-flung corners of the world, capturing thousands of breathtaking images along the way.

Top Wildlife Sites of the World invites you to feel inspired by the places that have inspired Will with each breathtaking turn of the page.

More than 30 sites are covered, each with a locator map, beautiful photographs, a fact file and an evocative account of what it's like to go there, written by Will's wife and travel companion, Natalie. Destinations range from Tasmania to Svalbard and from the Okavango Delta to Alaska.
