Top 5 Animal

I LOVE animals! By far and away one of my favourite parts of traveling is getting to see and meet some of our planets most incredible creatures in their native environments.  We’ve had the opportunity to get up close and personal with several wonderful animals and these memories will forever be some of my best.  Although animal tourism is a huge draw for me and so many others it’s important to remember that the most important thing is the animal and not your personal enjoyment as a tourist. If participating in this type of tourism you should always make sure to do your research first. Seek out the most responsible, natural and nonintrusive way to meet our planets animals. Never support exploitation even if it means a cheaper price tag and closer contact with the animal.

Although we were eventually able to move our tent beneath a tree let’s just say that it wasn’t a very nice first day in Kasane.
