Hi, I am currently living in the UK and taking a gap year before I start university next year. I was wondering which locations are suitable for an 18 year old looking to start mammalwatching?
This may entail an inexpensive location (where the cost of living is not too high and mammals are relatively accessible) where not a lot of equipment is required to find mammals.
For example Central America and South-East Asia are typical gap year destinations as they have a lot to offer and have a low cost of living – is there potential for good-value mammalwatching in these regions?
If anyone can recommend anywhere (maybe there are expeditions or trips that are great for mammalwatching, although most I have come across are quite expensive), or just general tips for mammalwatching, that would be greatly appreciated 🙂
