5 Top Countries for Wildlife Spotting (Slideshow)

 

Forget the zoo — check out some of the most incredible countries on the planet to see animals in the wild.

Nearly 1/3  of Botswana’s land is set aside for wildlife. And boy, do they have plenty of it: zebras, hippos, elephants, wildebeest, lions, giraffes, cheetah, rhinos, hyenas, meerkats, just to name a few! Though the country is nearly twice the size of Arizona, it has a population of just 1.5 million and has relatively good environmental protections for the region — making it a popular safari destination.
