1. Serengeti Migration
Over a million animals annually trek the circular Serengeti Migration route of this natural wonder of the world. They travel in search of water and pasturage. Safari-goers see wild lions, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, elephants, and more. Kenya &Tanzania.
The geographical isolation of this natural wonder allowed the creatures on these Islands to evolve differently from their distant ancestors on the South American continent. Charles Darwin made the islands famous. A cruise is the chief means of exploring the Galapagos Islands. Pacific off Ecuador.
3. Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon took over a billion years to develop. Its depth, width and magnificent views exceed the expectations of most visitors. Southwest USA.
It has raw natural beauty – icebergs, glaciers, jagged mountain peaks, and more. Antarctica is also rich in wildlife, including penguins, seals and whales. An Antarctica cruise is the prime means of getting there. Bottom of the world.
5. Iguazu Falls
The water plummets over a wide set of rims that are as high as a 24 story building. Iguazu Falls is far more spectacular than Niagara Falls, but only slightly more so than Victoria Falls (which ranks #8 among the world’s natural wonders). Brazil & Argentina.
6. Amazon Rainforest
The Amazon Rain Forest is immense (spans most of South America’s width). It has a jungle dense with unique vegetation – and a snaking river network. Mainly Brazil & Peru
7. Ngorongoro Crater
Many major safari animals are “trapped” on a vast round plain surrounded by the high walls of a collapsed ancient volcano.
The Ngorongoro Crater is a vivid experience for adventure travelers. Tanzania.
8. Great Barrier Reef
This tropical archipelago is situated off the continent’s northeast coast. The Great Barrier Reef is passionately praised by divers, snorkelers, and glass bottom boaters for its coral fish and reef viewing. Northeast Australian.
9. Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is almost as breathtaking as Iguazu Falls, which is ranked just four notches higher on my natural wonders list. Zambia & Zimbabwe.
10. Fjords of Norway
Ancient glaciers carved out the mammoth Fjords of Norway out of coastal mountains. Viewing this wonder aboard a cruise ship is the most popular way to see them. Norway’s coast.
