Incredible Encounter With Alaskan Brown Bear

Whether it’s a whale watching trip, a a hiking excursion or an African safari, the opportunity to see wildlife up close and personal in the outdoors is incredible. And the best way to safely see wild animals is with the help of wildlife tour guides such as Jeremy Gichohi in Kenya, Tony Foster in New Zealand and Captain Nolan in Louisiana.

An area where you can see some of the largest animals on earth up close is Alaska. From Humpback whales to Grizzly bears, this northern-most American state boasts a plethora of wildlife that are easy to spot. Of course, you don’t want to get too close which is why hiring Alaskan wildlife tour guides is such a good idea. Just how close can the animals get, you ask? Just look at the following video by Drew Hamilton, a tech worker at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. He was photographing brown bears near the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary when one decided to just amble up and have a seat next to him.
