Our favourite experiences, as we road trip around the world, are our animal encounters. Whether it’s a pride of lions or a herd of elephants in the wilds of Africa, common garden birds flitting around us, or the pets we looked after on house-sits.

They all make this journey even more special.

Animal Encounters Around the World

Read on to find out what it’s like to come face to face with a growling leopard, to stumble upon an endangered and rare pangolin... TWICE, and find out more about the many incredible animals and birds that may cross your path.

We’ve tripped over puffins in Wales, fed reindeer in Sweden, cuddled abandoned baby monkeys in South Africa and continue to have unforgettable animal and bird encounters all around the world.

We like to use Trusted Housesitters, where we get to pet sit anywhere in the world, in exchange for free accommodation. We’ll be adding stories from our housesitting escapades here.
