BBC Planet Earth: See the animals for yourself
Planet Earth Live: What you can see and where
The BBC launched one of the biggest global wildlife series this May following the planet's most wonderful animals day and night. Richard Hammond and Julia Bradbury bring you up-close footage of the young animals as they struggle to survive. While this series has so far proved fascinating why not see these animals up-close yourself. Here's our guide to where you can see these animals in the wild.
We cannot always guarantee sightings but our local Group Leaders know the best places for game viewing and will try to find you the ideal spot.
The American Black bear is native to North America, an omnivore and can weigh up to 500kg. If you want to see a black bear then visit Banff National Park, Canada. Here the black bear population is considered a threatened species but there are still 30-40 left and sightings in spring and summer are common. You will also see the grizzly bear in Banff too - distinguised from the black bear by a large muscle on the shoulder and their broad, round faces.
The BBC team are following a family of elephants in the Samburu National Reserve. This majestic mammal is often at risk from poaching, predators or simply injury and illness. Our Foundation currently sponsors an elephant orphan, Shukuru, at the David Sheldricks Wildlife Trust in Kenya. You can visit Shukuru and catch a glimpse of elephant families in the wild on one of our Kenyan safaris. You can also see the African elephant in Tanzania, South Africa or the Chobe National Park, Botswana.
The Masai Mara is a large game reserve in Kenya and home to around 13 or so lion prides. Over the months of May and June the possibility of sighting lions is increased by the Great Migration of wildebeest. After a period of heavy rain and a lack of food the lions can again hunt their prey as zebras, wildebeest and other animals flood the plains. Lions are to be found all over Africa with Selous National Park, Tanzania and Lake Manyara, home to the tree-climbing lion, prime game viewing locations. To see the lion at night the best place is Kruger National Park, South Africa. If you want a Hands On trip tracking a lion pride then try our Call of the Wild South Africa trip.
The cute but ferocious meerkat has shot to fame in recent years and now you can get up close and personal with these furry creatures. Spotting these charismatic mammals, just like the Planet Earth team, is easy especially if you travel with one of our local Group Leaders. Meerkats are found in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia so on most of our Southern African trips you have the chance to spot them. Each morning families of meerkats pop up from their burrows to look for food, sunbathe or groom. You can actually walk among the meerkats at sunrise on our Meerkats & Wildcats family trip.
The Toque Macaques monkeys are a fascinating primate often named the 'Temple Monkey' due to their fondness for living among the ancient Sri Lankan temples at Polonnaruwa. If you want to really get to know the macaques then try our Hands On Primate Paradise where you will spend three days with Dr Wolfgang Dittus, 'the monkey master', tracking the behaviour of the Toque Macaques, Purple Faced and Gray Langurs in Polonnaruwa.
The Polar bear is the world's largest land predator found in the Arctic, Canada, the USA, Russia and Norway. With their large, webbed paws polar bears can swim for hundreds of miles away from their icy lands, preying on seals and occassionally dining on the carcass of dead whales. With no fear of humans the polar bear can become a dangerous enemy.
