Safari holidays need to be on your bucket list. They offer experiences of a lifetime, even just going on just the one. Here’s a look at the ultimate holidays that you need to go on to make your bucket list complete.
Start with a Snow Safari
When you think safari, there are high chances that you get the African wilderness in mind. Sure, this part of the world is popular, but it’s not the only place where you will see the wild animals in their natural habitat. What about the snow animals?
Lapland in Finland is a place to add to your list, especially if you have children and teenagers. You’ll get the amazing sights of the Northern Lights, as well as the chance to see the likes of bears, wolves and more on snowmobiles or snowshoe treks. Don’t miss out on the trips to the reindeer farm.
The best time to visit is during the winter months in the northern hemisphere. Most trips will stop around the middle of April, as it gets too warm for the animals and the Northern Lights aren’t always visible.
See the Galapagos Wildlife
The next to add to your list is a trip to Latin America, more specifically the Galapagos. This is perfect for older teenagers and adults, who want to see the beautiful lava formations from the still-active volcanoes, amazing tropical beaches, forests full of cacti, and even a chance to see some penguins! Yes, there are really penguins. You’ll also see booby birds, humpback whales, and sea lions.
There are plenty of trips that will include horse riding, cycling, and hiking to make sure you visit the three most popular Galapagos Islands for the local wildlife.
The best thing about the trips is that you can go all year round. You’re close enough to the Equator to get good weather the majority of the time.
Take a Driving Tour of Canada
Did you know that Canada is 150 years old in 2017? It’s also a place to add for your safari bucket list tours. Take a drive yourself, planning a route that will give you the sights and sounds that you really want. You’ll see grizzly bears, bald eagles, and moose throughout your trip. If you go far enough north, you may even seen some polar bears and other snow animals.
Don’t forget to take a trip one or two of the many national parks – Canada is home to just one national park that crosses over two provinces!
This is perfect for children and adults of all ages. There will be something for everyone to do and see. The time of year will depend on the animals that you want to see. The summer months get hot, especially by lakes. The winters will require plenty of snow gear!
Visit Chobe National Park in Botswana
Of course, Africa needs to appear on this list of safaris to visit. Chobe National Park, Botswana is one of the most popular destinations, especially for those who want to see herds of elephants in their natural habitat. You’ll also see cheetahs, lions, tigers, and more.
Depending on the type of safari you go on, you could even go for yoga sessions in the middle of the African bush. Allow yourself to become one with the area, amalgamating the sights, sounds, and relaxation.
African safaris take place around the year. During the middle of the year, many of the prices will increase but mostly due to flights elsewhere.
It’s time to take in the magic of the natural world. See wildlife in their own homes and experience events with your safari bucket list.
