Is there anything more beautiful than a sunrise over the ocean or the view through gentle fogs curling on a mountaintop? Borneo holidays offer you the chance to travel in luxury without giving up the fresh, exotic flavour that make holidays abroad so one-of-a-kind.
Here are just a few places where you can experience the wonders of this amazing country first-hand.
The New 7 Wonders of Nature finalists were released in November 2011. The included places include beautiful and breathtaking waters, a mountain and islands. Here is a look at each of these gorgeous places to visit.
Forest reserves are what are left of our once beautiful, all natural world of forests, animals and mountains. Huge cities with their skyscrapers have taken over once pristine forest and steppe lands. Today, the few forest reserves we have in the world are precious land spaces that provide a heaven for the flora and fauna not found anywhere else. Here are the top 10 forest reserves for the nature loving traveler in you.
1. Serra do Divisor National Park, Brazil-Peru
The Serra Do Divisor National Park comprises a large slice of the world’s largest rainforest, the Amazon. The Amazon rainforest is as large as the United States or Western Europe, as it covers 5% of our planet’s land. It supports the most diverse and very threatened ecosystem; you’ll find 15% of the world’s mammals here, along with 15% of Earth’s terrestrial flora.
2. Muir Woods National Park, North America
Muir Woods National Park in the San Francisco bay area is one of Northern America’s last coastal redwood forests, one of the stalwarts of the US’s diverse and beautiful ancient forest ecosystems.
The Muir Woods National Park is a great rainforest park reserve that stores massive amounts of the carbon our planet needs so badly. This reserve, along with the entire forest stretch, contains many large mammals such as the grey wolf, puma and grizzly bear.
When you think of visiting animals in their natural habitat on an adventurous holiday, Africa may be the first place that comes to mind. While an African safari is definitely an adventure, may we suggest something a bit closer to home? Rather than heading toward the equator, set your compass north—to Alaska, to be exact.
A trip to Alaska offers an amazing opportunity to see a remote yet exciting part of the United States that many people don’t visit. If you love animals then seeing polar bears, seals and penguins in their natural habitat is an opportunity like no other.
