  • California

    California has very varied habitat (from desert to tundra) with a corresponding diversity of species, coupled with incredible scenery and some of the most productive cetacean viewing in the world, which make it a top mammal watching destination. I first visited in 1998 for ten days and barely scratched the surface. I have returned many times since then.

  • Central African Republic

    I guess it was 2002 when I first heard about Dzanga Sangha National Park. I was having a beer with Steve Anyon-Smith in Sydney and he told me about a wildlife doco he had seen about Bais - natural clearings - in the Congo, including Dzanga Bai. I was smitten.

  • Chile

    Chilean people are just about the friendliest people I have ever met. I picked up a few hitchhikers: all of them were keen to meet for drinks and dinner and converse with me and my 50 words of Spanish. And when I mentioned in a couple of cafés that I was trying to see an armadillo, within minutes the manager would be on the phone to their friends and family trying to find out the best places to look. Chileans are also a very cultured bunch, who like to talk about poetry, music and wine. I was able, at least, to weigh in on the latter.

  • China

    I have been to China several times but feel I have barely scratched the surface. The country is huge, of course, and hugely diverse. My travel there, especially my 2005 expedition to see Giant Pandas, and my 2015 trip to the Tibetan plateau, has given me some of my very best mammal watching.

  • Colombia

    Colombia - or at least the Colombia I saw - is about as close to paradise as I can imagine. It is ridiculously diverse with about 460 species of mammals. I think only Brazil has more, but Brazil is about three times the size. The biodiversity is driven by the geographic diversity: Colombia has serious mountains, grassland plains, rainforest, desert and coastal forest. I can't imagine anyone ever has an excuse to be bored. Add to this some of the friendliest, happiest people I've ever met, a low cost of living, delicious food and you begin to get the picture.
