Land Iguana, Galapagos Islands

I recommend visiting - The Galapagos Islands

A place like no other, the Galapagos Islands offer many endemic species of bird, reptile and marine life as well as some unexpectedly harsh landscapes and surprisingly white beaches.

With the aid of the highly experienced guides you really can bring out your inner naturalist, noticing the subtle speciation from island to island and marvelling at the tameness of the animals.

Despite a strict rule for visitors to stay 2 m (6.5 ft) from all wildlife, the animals pay no heed to this and it means countless opportunities for close up photographs — even if you're as bad with a camera as I am.

Sacha Lodge, Ecuador

I recommend staying at - Sacha Lodge

Simple

The Sacha Lodge is set deep in the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle in a serene and secluded spot. Even the journey to get there is impressive. Driving two and a half hours into the jungle, spotting caiman and birdlife in abundance really gives you a great appreciation of the rarity and uniqueness of the place.

The lodge is situated just off the river on the banks of a small oxbow lake and is a naturalist's paradise. There's a 60 m (200 ft) canopy walk and if you’re lucky, you may even get to see the local family of giant otters playing in the water.

I'll never forget when…

It's almost impossible to choose, but watching the sun set behind the Andes while going down the Napo River in the Ecuadorian Amazon was something I'll never forget. The sounds of the jungle with the animal life hidden behind the foliage and the vibrant hues in the sky were out of this world.
