The core activity in Wildlife Photography is to capture great pictures of Wildlife, but I hope you will all agree with me that, it also has to be enjoyed and this has a lot to do with the place you choose to undertake your activity. In this article I have provided you with five places where I think will be appropriate for wildlife photography
#1 Bristol Zoo Gardens in England is a place that has over 450 species of plain and endangered animals from several parts of the world, including monkeys,gorillas, butterflies, birds, Asiatic Lions and reptiles. Visitors to this place can also take advantage of the animal show and expert talk that the zoo offers and also have the chance to partake in a yearly festival in the summer of every year, characterised by music events. This place without any doubts will be a suitable place for wildlife photography.
#2 Ranthambore national park in India is one of the most well known Wildlife tourist attraction spots in India and has the reputation of attracting many Wildlife Photographers from all corners of the world. This national park can boast of Wildlife animals like Jackals, Leopards, Tigers, Jungle cats, Wild boar, Chinkara just to mention a few. Entry and exit times to this park during summer and winter times differ. Because of the shorter day duration during the winter, people are allowed to enter the park late during the day and made to leave early in the day.
In case you are looking to take photos of wildlife animals as part of a holiday trip and looking for a decent accommodation, then look no further, because The Tiger Den and Sher Bagh resorts are just few metres away from the park.
