Experiencing an animal in its natural habitat can induce pure awe and amazement in even the most cultured travelers. For those of us who dream of a rare bird or animal sightings but don’t have the time or mean to travel thousands of miles across the globe to achieve it, wildlife webcams are the perfect solution. Tuning into the various livestreams of animals and nature around the world can help you feel connected to the earth while taking in some breathtaking sights, all from your home. Here are our four favorite webcams from around the world to start watching now.

Tembre Elephant Park is home to some of the largest elephants in the whole world, weighing in at seven metric tons and standing over 3 meters tall.
