1. Costa Rica: Costa Rica is home to more than 500,000 species, making it one of the 20 countries with the highest biodiversity in the world.

2. Yellowstone: Yellowstone National Park has the largest concentration of wildlife in the lower 48 states. Bears, moose, elk, bison, badgers, otters, foxes, etc.

3. Galapagos Islands: Many of the species are endemic to the islands and have never learned to fear contact of humans.

4. Namibia: This country is on the forefront of wildlife conservation and has many of the African species you want to travel to Africa to see, including the Big Five.

5. Tetons: Wildlife viewing with a backdrop of the Teton Mountain Range. Bison, elk, antelope, and very high chance of seeing moose.
