When it comes to seeing the world, we all have a bucket list, even if it’s a mental one. Having aspirations about where you want to go and what you want to do is important as a way of motivating and educating yourself.
One of the things that makes it onto people’s bucket lists is going on a safari adventure. Whether you’re travelling through Asia, or you are planning on taking an extended visit to the continent of Africa, there are safari opportunities everywhere. These are some of the key reasons why a safari needs to be on your bucket list right now.
It’s more affordable than ever
Now might be the best time to take a safari, because it’s more affordable than it’s ever been. In fact, travel in general seems to be much cheaper these days, with budget airlines allowing more people than ever to go and see the world.
If you aren’t already savvy to the likes of Jacks Flights and Holiday Pirates then you need these Apps. They constantly pop up with amazing flight deals all around the world meaning that if you spot some cheap flights your big trips can end up being half the price. It was just a few months ago that I managed to bag a flight to L.A for £38!
There are so many different tailor-made safari holidays available these days. It is really just a question of choosing the right provider or tour company to book with.
Record-breaking wildlife and scenery
It’s not just that you’re seeing animals and nature, it’s the type of animals and nature you get to see. For instance, on an African safari you can bear witness to the Great Wildebeest Migration, which sees more than two million wildebeest, gazelles, zebras, and impalas stampede across the plains and savannas of Africa.
Ample great photo opportunities
Budding photographers, both professional and amateur, can really benefit from a safari adventure. They offer the ideal opportunity to capture some staggering photo opportunities, and use nature as the canvas to explore your photography skills. Plus, you don’t have to be a wildlife photographer to love a good insta post.
Of course, you have to make sure you’re chosen the right photography equipment for your safari, as this will make a major difference to the outcome. But, for those with the right tools, the possibilities and opportunities are limitless. This is an excellent way of allowing you to capture some wonderful photographs of nature at its most raw and primal.
Get to know other cultures
One of the great things about taking a safari is the fact that it gives you the chance to experience and get to know other cultures.
If you’ve only ever visited big cities, then experiencing nature in its raw form will will change your way of looking at the world. You will find out more about the culture and history of faraway places, and how the animals and natural landscapes play a part in shaping the nations involved.
There are a lot of things you can do when you go travelling, but safari’s can be extremely educational and fun. Moreover, it is becoming increasingly important to appreciate and educate ourselves about the natural world. With so many different variables leading to the extinction and protection of endangered animals going on a trip that puts you at the heart of these problems can be a real transformative experience. Not just for yourselves, but for the future of these animals welfare too.
