Many people identify Africa with wildlife safaris. However, if travel to the African Continent is not in your immediate plans, you can experience incredible expeditions in the following five places:

1. The Pantanal Wetlands, Brazil

This is the world's biggest tropical wetland system. It is in Midwestern Brazil and has a spectacularly biodiverse environment. The best time to go is during the dry season between July and October.

2. Ranthambore National Park, India

India has the world's largest tiger population. Ranthambore is one of the country's best tiger reserves. Other wildlife there includes panthers, bears, wolves and monkeys. The best time for tiger sightings is from April to June.

3. Jungles of Malaysian Borneo

Borneo is an exotic land of unexplored jungles and obscure tribes. The rainforests are home to extraordinary wildlife including 44 mammal species found nowhere else in the world. Any time of year is a good time to go.

4. Kamchatka Coast and Chukotka Autonomous District, Russia

These remote areas are some of the most wildlife-rich places in the Arctic region. Kamchatka is famous for its brown bears. The summer salmon run takes place in Chukotka every year. The best time to visit is in the summer from June to August.

5. Kakadu National Park, Australia
