The best places to see cute, cuddly and majestic animals.
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! For animal lovers, the world is full of great vacation destinations, whether you want to spend it running like mad and yelling "Mush!", lounging in an upscale inn admiring the 45 centimetre-long tongues of some of its guests, or taking a dip with a bunch of animated balls of goo, we've compiled a list of 10 of our favourites. (In no particular order, I must confess. In this case, I long to go to every one of them just about equally. Yes, even the one in Orlando — I unabashedly love Florida, and my two-year-old is gator-mad.)
