Our Members Go Where the Wild Things Are [Slideshow]

The world is a wild place and some of our members’ Shoot for the Stars entries are proof of that.

Have you ever come face-to-face with an exotic bird? Witnessed the raw force of a humpback whale or a majestic wild horse? These Global Discovery Vacations members have and then some. Here are some of our favorite animal encounters:

And always remember, if you see an animal in the wild, please use caution! Some animals will come up to you and welcome interaction, as you can see in the photos above. But overall, don’t make contact with wild animals for their safety and yours.

What animals have you encountered in your travels? Tell us below or share a photo on our Facebook page!
