5 of the Best Virtual Wildlife Experiences and Encounters

A safari is one of the most thrilling and memorable wildlife experiences. The anxious wait to spot the elusive leopard, the rapid beating of your heart as you see its swaying tail dangling from a tree branch and the beauty of this majestic animal. If you’re a nature lover, you’ll be pleased to know, you can still get up close and personal with some of the most iconic species from around the world. Enjoy seeing virtual sparring polar bears and vivid coral reefs, with so many creatures living in their natural habitats and all from the comfort of your home.

Brown bears

Think you’re good at fishing? Probably not as good as these Alaskan brown bears. Watch adult bears hunt leaping salmon at the Katmai National Park, Alaska through a livecam, as young cubs stand by and learn. With an underwater camera, you will see brown bears hunting, swimming, and wrestling while partially submerged in the Brooks River. The best thing about the livecam footage is that highlights of the virtual tours and stunning underwater scenes are available long after salmon season is over. Then, when you’ve had your fill of the virtual brown bear observations, perhaps you can start planning your big Canada adventure for 2021.

How would you like to peer into the private life of the world’s apex predator in its natural habitat?

From the heartening footage of a mama bear nursing her infant cubs, to the powerful territorial battle between adult males, you can see polar bears raw and close up.

Enjoy live footage of African penguins waddling around the aquarium in San Diego Zoo. Watch the flock leap off rockworks in the large enclosure, made to resemble the granite boulders from Boulders Beach in South Africa, and merrily groom and socialise with their feathered mates. Also, watch in amazement as leopard sharks harmoniously share the pool with the penguins.
