Do you want to see a lot of wildlife and venture in the jungle? Do you want to snorkel and dive? Do you want to ski and ice-fish? Depending on your answer, you can go to Africa for a real jungle and wildlife experience, to Australia for diving and snorkeling and to North America or Europe for skiing.
Have you been trying to figure out which safari destination to visit during your upcoming vacation? Well, you are not alone. Many people find it hard to decide which destination best suits them. Below is a list of factors that should help you decide where to go.
1. Your Budget
Those with a large travelling budgets can go to any destination they choose, but this is not so for those travelling on a lean budget. Travel destinations in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and North America are more expensive than those in Latin America and Africa. Thus, if you are really travelling on a shoestring budget, you are better off in Africa or South America.
2. What do you want out of your safari destination?
Do you want to see a lot of wildlife and venture in the jungle? Do you want to snorkel and dive? Do you want to ski and ice-fish? Depending on your answer, you can go to Africa for a real jungle and wildlife experience, to Australia for diving and snorkeling and to North America or Europe for skiing. Those who love the sun can head to the Latin America or the Caribbean Islands.
3. What is the duration of your vacation?
You cannot head to Africa or Australia if you are just looking for a weekend Safari. You are better off skiing in Canada or trekking in the Grand Canyon. If you have time on your hands, you can sail to Australia where you will snorkel and dive and then on your way back drop into Africa for a day or two in the African wild.
4. Does the destination offer variety?
Australia and Africa have diverse wildlife, long coastlines and tropical weather. Caribbean has beautiful beaches and resorts. Europe has museums, theaters, and sports. North America has the sports, the ice and the night clubs. The choice is for you to make on which destination provides the best mix for your safari.
5. Does the destination have enough hospitality infrastructure?
If you are not into much wild, you better head to Europe where there are enough tourism infrastructures. In Africa and Latin America, tourist accommodations are almost always spread thin due to the tropical weather throughout the year. You will be required to book your accommodation early.
The above queries need to be answered comprehensively if you are going to find a safari destination that is ideal for you. Trust me; making the decision will be much easier if you know what you want in each of the above points.
