Five Star Kids - - ANIMALS -

Chil­dren love an­i­mals and noth­ing makes a bet­ter theme for a fam­ily trip than a chance to see mon­keys or ele­phants or a gi­ant panda. But where in the world do you find them? Here’s our vis­ual guide to the best des­ti­na­tions to find the four-legged and furry – and a few with tusks or scales, too.

BEAR Griz­zly bears, brown bears and black bears can all be seen in north­ern parts of the US and Canada. Watch griz­zlies fish for salmon at Knight In­let Lodge in Canada. BI­SON Once roam­ing the grass­lands of the west, they can now be seen in na­tional parks, such as Yel­low­stone Na­tional Park, Wy­oming, and Custer State Park, South Dakota. HORSE There are 33,000 wild mus­tangs in the US, con­cen­trated in Colorado and Mon­tana. Or stay at a dude ranch and ride the do­mes­ti­cated ver­sion. RAC­COON These lit­tle crea­tures are found all over the US. Go for a walk in the woods and see if you can spot one. AL­LI­GA­TOR You’ll find a lot of ‘ga­tors in Louisiana and Florida. Take an Ever­glades air­boat tour to spot them. TOUCAN Costa Rica is a great place to spot toucan and other colour­ful Cen­tral Amer­i­can birds. LLAMA Meet the llama in Peru. Watch girls in coloured cos­tumes herd them in the moun­tains around Machu Pic­chu. VOL­UME 8 2017
