Bear Necessities - Great Bear Rainforest - Canada BC

A truly magical and humbling experience

Location: Western Canada, British Columbia

Good for: Astounding scenery, Grizzly Bears, Spirit Bears, Black Bears, Whales,  Orca, Wolves and more.

When to go: Given the location, I would suggest that spring, summer and autumn are the best times to visit as many areas would become impossible in the harsh winter, if you can even arrange it! Spring and summer is good for bear viewing with cubs, whereas Autumn, is a great time to see the Salmon run and watch the bears fishing and eating on the riverbanks.

SA Adventure - Garonga

Stunning African safari set in a private reserve

Location: South Africa. A 22,000 hectare area in the greater Makalali Conservancy - west of the Kruger National Park.

Good for: The traditional big 5, among other wildlife flora and Fauna. Luxury riverside tented accommodation or bungalow lodges with game drives and walking safaris.

When to go: This camp is open all year, but going in the dry season (UK Summer) is often more rewarding as the game congregates around the watering holes and can be easier to find and see. That said, I can't imagine there is a bad time to visit here.
