Best Destinations for a Bear Safari

If you are an adventurous lover, check out the following best destinations for a Bear Safari.

Knight Inlet

Knight InletKnight Inlet is found in the southern section of the Great Bear rain forest, that begins simply a hundred twenty five miles north of Vancouver, and contains a number of British Columbia’s hottest Grizzly Bear safari destinations. Knight Inlet is one among the few places in North America where these normally solitary animals gather in large numbers. During the autumn salmon run bear viewing is conducted from two secure viewing stands overlooking a spawning channel, and it isn’t uncommon to see half a dozen bears competiting for the most effective fishing spots.

Kronotsky Nature Reserve

Kronotsky Nature Reserve is found on the coast of the Kamchatka peninsula, where bear safari tours are become more and more popular. Kronotsky is commonly known as the Land of fire and Ice due to its mixture of volcanoes and geysers. The nature reserve boasts over 700 brown bears, a number of the most important in the world that may grow to over 540 kilogram (1,200 pounds). Bears in the Kronotsky Reserve usually encounter one another at salmon streams in the park where they can socialize freely with each other.

Denali National Park

Denali National ParkThe Denali National Park and Preserve is found in Interior Alaska and contains Mount McKinley, the best mountain in North America. The word “Denali” suggests that “the high one” in the native Athabaskan language and refers to Mount McKinley. Denali is home to a healthy population of grizzly bears and black bears. Wild blueberries and soap berries thrive during this landscape, and supply the bears with the main part of their diets. Despite the big concentration of bears in Denali, efforts by rangers to educate visitors about preventative measures have greatly reduced the number of dangerous encounters.

Svalbard Polar Bear Safari

Svalbard is an archipelago situated about midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. Polar bears are the iconic symbol of Svalbard, and one of the main tourist attractions. Svalbard and Franz Joseph Land (a Russian archipelago in the east) share a common population of 3,000 polar bears. The islands of Kong Karls Land have the largest concentration of Polar bear in Svalbard but are closed for visitors. Polar bears can be extremely unpredictable and are far more dangerous than European brown bears. While protected, anyone outside of a settlement is required to carry a rifle as a last resort should a Polar Bear attack. The bears can therefore best be watched on an organized bear safari.

Katmai National Park

Bald Eagle, Katmai National ParkKatmai National Park is a national park roughly the size of Whale in southern Alaska. Katmai is one in all the premier brown bear safari destinations in the world. The most recent bear survey documented over 2000 brown bears in the park. Bears are possible to congregate at the Brooks Falls where they are available to come to feed on the salmon. Rangers at the Katmai Park are extremely careful not to allow bears to obtain human food or get into confrontations with humans. As a result, the bears are uniquely unafraid of and uninterested in humans, and will allow people way more closely than bears elsewhere.

Enjoy!
