I read somewhere that BBC wildlife documentary series Planet Earth was so popular in China that the country’s combined streaming activities slowed the internet when it aired. An exaggeration perhaps, but totally believable.
The programme’s epic photography and captivating commentary have brought the topic of conservation to the forefront of the conversation in our living rooms. Something I feel is vital if we are to have any hope of preserving the natural landscapes of our earth.
If you’ve been inspired by the footage captured by the Planet Earth team and would like to see some of the environments featured in the series, why not consider booking a wildlife holiday?
Pack your camera and some camouflage, and dust off your sense of adventure. I’ve compiled some of the best destinations that offer a memorable wildlife holiday for nature photographers.
Which one is top of your bucket list?
