Vacation time is just around the corner, and I can already here bags being packed, schedules confirmed and people getting ready to vroom off. Talking about vacations, decided on a venue yet? Let me suggest one to you. You’ve climbed enough mountains and tanned at enough beaches. Now, why not venture into a forest for a safari?
There are multiple reasons why you should, only some of them being the ideal climate conditions, the distance from the madding crowd and the absolute delight for animal lovers. Besides, the novelty factor of it all should always be regarded with great interest.
Africa is particularly popular for containing forests which are worthy of being visited for safaris, as are many other nations around the globe. If you need further convincing, read on to find out your 5 reasons why.
- A Vacation Program That’s Off the Beaten Track.
One of the primary reasons we go on vacations is because we want to leave the familiar and the routine behind us for a short span of time, isn’t it? Well, why not, along with a change of scene from daily life, you implement a change of scene from what you associate with the idea of ‘vacation’ as well? I am talking here of leaving behind the familiar mountains and fountains and sea beaches you usually head to once your children’s schools shut for the summer. In stead, spend your time actively watching wildlife nestled in a jungle location very, very far away from home.
- The Proximity to Nature
All the tight deadlines and bleeping computer screens and telecommunication devices and metro rail of the modern times have pushed as comfortably far away from the arms of Mother Nature as was possible. Would it not be great to revive that proximity again?
Well, a wildlife safari during your vacation is you ticket to actually doing that. Watching animals all day long with your quadcopter which gives you the birds eye view of the forest, you might actually discover what inspired Wordsworth to write Romantic poetry, and discover renewed zest for life.
- The Animal Lover’s Paradise
I know what you are going to say to this, dude, everyone can check out their neighbour’s dog. I know. Just hear me out on this one, okay?
The animals you get to witness on a wildlife safari are nothing like the ones you find nestled in cosy domestic environments. Some of these are rare, others dangerous. They involve tigers, elephants, reptiles, all. It provides thrill for the adventure junkie too. But if you are a plain old animal lover, you are in for a treat. Many bird lovers are said to have bought equipment worth a month’s salary exclusively for experiences of this sort.
- Zero Pollution
Wherever you go for a vacation, chances are you will be exposed to the fumes in metropolitan cities, waste from skyscrapers, litter from tourists on beaches, and radioactivity in certain mountain towns. But in a forest for a safari? You are absolutely free from all of these.
Surrounded by oxygen supplying plants and trees, ample sunlight providing you with Vitamin D, the air around devoid of industrial waste and smog, you will be a in a haven that could do wonders for your body and organs. Moreover, your eyes will be spared the constant glare of smartphones.
- Exploring the Underexplored
Let us think about clichéd Bucket lists for a moment. Hmm, same old. New York, London and Paris. Maybe a Vienna or an India? These are the destinations people like you and me spend some lifetime and lifetime’s earnings chasing the coattails of.
And as a result, neglected lie the true treasures of the world. Did you know that an Africa could offer you the very same delights? That the sound of wild animals prowling about your tree house late in the night is a hundred times more exciting than another river or tower? That the all-round benefits of the first trip are many times larger than the second? It is going to be an experience you never forget. Next vacation, you will know what choice to make.
Travelling on vacations is one of the unparalleled pleasures of life, and choosing the right destination is a very big component of ensuring highest enjoyment. Leaving far behind the beaten track, take to exploring a forest and its flora and fauna on a safari, this coming season.
