Oh, Borneo definitely when you're next planning a trip. You have the Orang Utan reserves in Sarawak, and then the rain forest and bat caves in Mulu. Great food, decent travel infrastructure and good hotels.

Just to add my 2c:

- There are some fantastic wildlife reserves in India which are pretty quiet. Some of the best wildlife spotting Iíve ever done was at Periyar in Kerala, so long as you donít require big game. (Itís called a tiger reserve but you will not see tigers.). The ones in the north are a bit more lux, if that matters.

- If you include flora in your definition of wildlife (and not just fauna), itís hard to look beyond the Cape. The fynbos is absolutely fascinating and constitutes one of the 6 plant kingdoms entirely to itself. Japan also has really stunning forests, e.g. hiking in Yakushima is completely magical.

- Are you prepared to go below the surface? Scuba diving opens up a whole other world of wildlife. Aside from all of the obvious places, I found diving in Okinawa pretty thrilling. April is a good time to see giant cuttlefish and manta rays.

Bangkok also has some interesting wildlife, though perhaps not of the variety that you may be looking for.

Re Borneo, bear in mind that Good Friday is a public holiday in Sabah and Sarawak states, though tourist facilities should probably be fine.

I second BKK, and with luck you might even encounter wildlife on a plane
Scorpion on a plane!

Las Vegas for the human wildlife , plus you can do day trips out to the canyons and lake Mead,

But most of the animals will be hiding from the heat unless you have a your guy that knows the area.,,..
Maybe the Wild horses ?
