White Rhino!!! This amazing animal must be ‘loosing the will to live” in the wild due to the high risk of poaching and sadly, it may even become extinct in our lifetime. I would love to see it roaming around in its natural habitat.

The number of animals I would want to see in South Africa are endless. Botswana is home to so many well-known African animals; over 164 types of mammals, 550 bird species and 157 different reptiles. I have always dreamed of exploring the most isolated of villages in South Africa. I think that seeing giraffes would be absolutely incredible. I love how awkwardly complex they are! Their legs alone are over 6ft tall, they can run around 35mph, they fight each other by clashing necks with each other, they are strong enough to kill a lion, and last, they look hilarious when trying to reach water. They’re goofy, beautiful creatures that I would love to observe. There really isn’t anything else like them, and that’s what grabs me.

I would most love to see the Barbary Lion in the wild, sadly this would be impossible as they are unfortunately considered to be extinct in the wild. I have gone and visited the Barbary lions in the Zoo in Belfast plenty of times and have fallen in love with this majestic creature. Southern Africa is full of incredible animals that would be incredible to see and photograph, and if I had to choose an animal not extinct in the wild it would be the Scimitar Horned Oryx, or indeed any form of Oryx or Kudu, fantastic creatures. As a student in photography and graphic design graduating in 2 months it would be an incredible way to build my portfolio as a photographer with fantastic images and I would promise to keep a strong and informative diary of my trip along with a strong suite of images that I could post as a case story about Rough Guides on my return. I am certainly not the type to waste and opportunity and cite my love of adventures and travelling as my top interest on my CV. This opportunity would mean the world to me, and also indeed be my first trip outside continental Europe, an adventure I am itching to undertake once I finish university.

Thank you, Steve.

There are so so many animals I would love to see in the wild but on a trip to Southern Africa specifically to see a Cheetah would be amazing. It’s the fastest land animal in the world and very sadly one of a huge number of animals at risk of extinction by 2030 due to factors such as hunting and habitat loss. To see a Cheetah in it’s natural habitat would be a true privilege.

Ever since I was a little girl, have been mesmerized by the wild elegance of the cheetah. Perhaps it’s the way they move. The cheetah’s muscles remind me of the breathtaking beauty of an acrobat or a dancer. They have a fierce poetry about them, in all their rarity and wildness. When watching them in slow motion, I cannot tear my eyes away.

Or maybe I love them because of the stories. As a child, I read folk stories about how the cheetah got its spots, and the sad stories of why the cheetah has tear marks upon its face. In the many variations of those stories, the cheetah was too different from the other big cats for them to accept her as one of them without judgement. Her tears were burned upon her face. Or she painted the tears there as a reminder of her sadness.

In my favorite version of the tale, the cheetah was not given the same “gifts” as the other big cats, but she discovered her own gift. She could practically fly across the ground with unsurpassed eloquence. At the end of the story, she accepted herself, and she blossomed in her own unique beauty.

So in truth, it would be my privilege to see this beautiful endangered animal because it gives me hope.

A wolf, or rather wolves – preferably a whole pack of them. I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time on Safari in the national parks in Tanzania, so I got to see a few big cats and other big game animals too. I didn’t see a rhino, but it’s turned up a few times already in people’s replies. So I’m going to go for a wolf. If I had to pick a location it would probably be in Alaska – so if I’m being really picky the Alaskan White or Arctic wolf would be very very cool.

I would most like to see a Blue Whale. The magnitude and incredible weight of history, science, nature and even social behavior are evoked when thinking about the largest mammal known to have ever existed!
Unfortunately, the reality that the great creatures may not exist much longer and I would like to see one, perhaps meet with people who work in conservation and in raising awareness. What a gift that would be!
Cheers!

I would be thrilled to see any of the magestic African animals in the wild. It’s a difficult choice to pick just one, however, I’d have to pick the Rhino. Their numbers have dwindled drastically and they are down to less than 29,000 in the wild. It’s terrible that rhino’s and elephants are tragically poached.

Dwarf Mongooses. Their family groups, hiding in termite mounds, are a real pleasure and privilege to watch. They’re always on the move, poking their heads out of holes, squeaking to each other and with a lookout on guard for any flying predators. They have to be one of my favourite mammals.

I would love to see the Cape buffalo because it seems like such a unique animal, unlike anything I have ever seen in my lifetime. I think it would be incredible to see such a large and powerful creature in its natural habitat. When people think of safari, we often picture big cats, zebras and rhinos, but we know far less about the buffalo. It would be amazing to see this magnificent animal in the wild and learn more about it.

Difficult to say just one as to see any African animal in it’s wild habit would be incredibly special and a truly humbling experience but most of all I would love to see elephants. I love the elephant family system and how protectively they live together plus I shall never understand how they can be the size they are and yet move so gracefully. OK, and the calves are adorable.

Gorilla – my favourite travel book is about a guy who rode a motorbike from London to South Africa and back again. In one scene he’s on the verge of giving up – he’s exhausted, the bike is stuck in mud and he’s miles from any help – then at that point a huge silver back appears from the trees beside him and pauses in front of the guy and his bike. They look at each other, and then the gorilla turns and continues his journey. Suddenly the guy finds himself ready to try again as the feeling of being in Africa and seeing such an incredible animal reminds him of how lucky he is to have the chance to be there. He drags the bike out of the mud and continues his journey. This image has stuck with me ever since I read the book – I would love to be able to have the chance to spend time in the jungle and be face to face with such an incredible animal.

African Rhino!!!
In 2003 I traveled to South Africa but did not get to see this amazing animal. Later that year, in Nepal, I was lucky to spot an Indian Rhino. That was not enough and I still feel like I have an unsettled debt with Africa.
My obsession with this animal comes from Douglas Adam’s book – Last Chance to See.

Which animal would you most like to see in the wild and why?
I would like to see and film the Botswana Tiger. Yes, it is a rare feline in Botswana, hardly ever seen, but it does exist. There are not only lions, cheetah and leopards in Botswana, but also this small “tiger”. I would like to see it because it is rare and few have had that pleasure. Most deny its existence, and laugh at the idea of tigers in Africa. They are wrong. Sheldon G. Weeks

I would like to see Elephants in the wild most. These gentle giants are, to me, one of the most impressive animals in the universe. On one hand, they are incredibly huge, powerful, and dangerous, capable of massive destruction in an instant. However, they are also intensely capable of sensitivity and connection. The family units that Elephants create with each other are life long and extend over generations and huge amounts of physical travel. When a baby is born, everyone rallies around it to make sure that everyone in the family, especially the baby, is protected. They also will never forget one another or an event that happens to them, making them incredibly complex. I just have so much awe and admiration for them and would love to see them up close (but not too close)!!

As a lover of all Apes and Large cats this is an extremely difficult choice. However, if I only have the opportunity to see one it would be the Orangutan. Their location, Borneo or Sumatra, provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these wonderful apes in their natural, if diminishing habitat. They are soulful, full of expression, often described as sad looking, but to me my favourite choice just in front of the Gorillas. I believe these apes are very intelligent, gentle and sociable and need to be admired and protected.
