The ruins of the castle tower of Corfe. The castle was destroyed during the English civil war. The occupants of the castle were on the losing side and the ghostly inhabitants were Royal murder victims. The legend is that Queen Elfrida murdered the 18 year old heir to the throne, Edward Aethling so that her son, Aethelred the Unready could rule.

Africa is amazing for wildlife, but it is not the only place where you are able to stare at the grandeur of wildlife.

Here are other great places to spot wildlife that are not in Africa.
