What are the best places to see wildlife in Asia?

by aoppold »

I'm looking to travel to Asia soon but would love the chance to experience some wildlife while there. Anyone have suggestions for countries or tours that would safely and humanely let me see some of Asia's unique wildlife? Ex. Pandas, elephants etc. Thanks!

Unfortunately, Asia's wildlife (unique or otherwise) has long been in decline due to poaching by traffickers, killing by rural farmers, and habitat destruction. 

Sri Lanka has the largest remaining elephant population.  The best national parks to see them include Yala, Minneriya, and Udawalawe among others.

Tigers are more elusive and you'd have to be extremely lucky to see one.  Populations are scattered thru-out South Asia in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

The sad fate of orangutans in Indonesia is known.  Another simian population are the snow monkey macaques of hot-spring fame in Yamanouchi, Japan. 

The Papua New Guinea highlands for exotic birds.

Good luck!

In all seriousness head to a zoo.

The absolute best zoo in the world IMHO is the Singapore Zoo. In one of the walk-through exhibits you can get right up to lemurs, bats and other animals. The zoo offers a Breakfast With Orangutans that is very unique and quite popular. Make reservations for this well in advance of a visit.

There is also the nearby Night Safari which is a nocturnal zoo that shouldn't be missed. Also in Singapore is Jurong Bird Park where you can see an amazing collection of birds, many in walk-thru aviaries.

You may want to consider Borneo.  Outside of Kuching (in Sarawak, Malaysia) is Bako National Park.  This is Sarawak's oldest national park.  If you are lucky you may see the bearded pig and proboscis monkey.  Macaque monkeys will be easy to see (they hang around the canteen and try to steal food from unwitting visitors).  In addition, you can see many types of plant species like pitcher plants all in the natural environment.

Sri Lanka is great if you're an elephant lover. There is also a decent population of leopards and rare birds. There are several great ways to live among the fauna and experience nature here too, like the Secret Hotels which offer camping experiences.

I agree that India is a nice place to see different wildlife. On 2015 one of my cousins visited India. There are many places to visit like Kanha Tiger Reserve, Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Valmiki Tiger Reserve, Pakke Tiger Reserve, Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary.

You may try to Go to Nepal, Kathmandu and Chitwan Natiomal park.

It is 3 night 4 days trip including Jeep safari, no doubt you can see one horn rhinos and Tigers..

Also, If you have still long holidays you can explore around Nepal Himalayas.

Thank you,

Enjoy your tour.
