For travelers who want close encounters with wildlife but also want to respect animals' freedom, G Adventures has introduced the Jane Goodall Collection of vacations.
It's a selection of 20 critter-centric tours endorsed by the renowned primatologist. Options include safaris in Kenya and Tanzania, river cruises in the Amazon, island hopping in the Galápagos, kayaking in Costa Rica, and chilly adventures in the Arctic Circle. Among the animals (humanely) featured: polar bears, big cats, marine life, and, this being Goodall, apes galore.
Prices range from $699 for a journey into the jungles of Ecuador to $6,000 for a polar bear experience in Canada.
