There is something magical about photographing a stunning landscape or some rarely seen wild animal. It can be quite an adventure to hike into the wilderness with your camera, at some unusual time of day, in hopes of getting the perfect picture. At The Insurance Emporium, we know that the world has some incredible playgrounds for nature photographers. That’s why we’ve put together this list of places where you could take beautiful photos of the wild.
This awe-inspiring national park, located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, is known worldwide for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, sequoia groves and glaciers. Landmarks like El Capitan, Glacier Point, Half Dome and Yosemite Falls make for excellent landscape shots. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for the wildlife inhabiting the park, such as black bears, mule deer, coyotes and bobcats.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Home to giraffes, zebras, elephants, lions and more, the Serengeti is the ideal place to see such majestic creatures in the wild. Serengeti means “endless fields” in the Maasai dialect, and the park mainly consists of vast grassland and woodland views. If you time your visit right, you might be able to take some pictures of the Great Migration, where wildebeests, gazelles, zebras and buffalos travel from Tanzania to Kenya and back.
Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
This volcanic archipelago was designated as the first-ever UNESCO Site in 1978. Plenty of interesting and unique wildlife live on the islands, including the Galapagos tortoise, land iguanas and various types of birds. It was here that Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution. Meanwhile, the scenery ranges from lush greenery to lava fields – both of which could be captivating for landscape photographers.
Known as the land of fire and ice, this island nation has a lot of otherworldly scenery shaped by these forces. Here you could snap pictures of lava fields, geysers, glaciers, black sand beaches, waterfalls and, if you visit during the winter months, the Northern Lights. As well as unique landscapes, birds such as puffins also flock to Iceland. In the waters surrounding it, you could also go on a whale-watching trip and potentially snap various species of whale and dolphin.
Bandhavgarh National Park, India
If you want to photograph tigers in the wild then it could be worth packing your camera and telephoto lens for a trip to Bandhavgarh National Park in India’s Vindhyan mountain range. This park has an unusually high number of Bengal tigers, which are rarely seen elsewhere. It’s possible that you could spot white tigers too! There are also plenty of other majestic animals that you might be able to photograph in the park, including leopards and deer.
