These types of vacations are adventures of a lifetime, that will be sure to leave people with some of the coolest memories that they could ever have.
Have you ever wanted to go on a vacation that wasn’t your typical vacation? Maybe you’re bored of the usual beach getaways, or ski trips. Better yet, maybe you’re a huge animal lover, looking to get up close and personal with one of your favorite animals. Luckily, there are a number of vacations out there that are perfect for animal lovers. You might have to do some traveling to other countries, like Kenya, Mexico, or even Costa Rica, but they’re out there.
There are places all over the world that specialize in vacations that allow guests to interact with animals that they might never get to see, like dolphins, turtles, or even sloths. While other places, might offer a more fulfilling vacation, in which you can volunteer to help everyday animals like dogs, cows, and pigs.
Either way, these vacations are unlike any other. Instead of laying on a beach soaking up the sun, you can find yourself in the middle of a safari, surrounded by giraffes and zebras, or even underwater with dangerous sharks swimming around you. These types of vacations are adventures of a lifetime, that will be sure to leave you with some of the coolest memories that you could ever have, and stories to tell all of your friends and family.
These are 25 destinations people go to so they could see animals, instead of touring.
25. DOLPHIN DISCOVERY – MEXICO
Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with a dolphin? Well, that could be possible at Dolphin Discovery. With multiple locations in Mexico, you can easily get one on one with a cute dolphin. There are three programs that you could choose from, depending on how close you’d like to get with one of the mammals. There’s the Dolphin Encounter, in which you spend 40 minutes with one dolphin, where you’ll receive a kiss, hug, and caress. There’s also the Dolphin Swim adventure, where you’ll spend a little more time with the animal, where you can ride on its belly and get kisses! Finally, there’s the Royal Swim, where you’ll be with two dolphins, who will push you up by your feet, and tow you around as you hang on their dorsal fins.
24. GIRAFFE MANOR – KENYA
Perhaps one of the coolest experiences you could ever have is at the Giraffe Manor. The hotel has some friendly guests that sometimes come to visit — a herd of giraffes! The herd visits at least once a day, sometimes more, depending on how hungry they are. Either in the morning or in the evening, they’ll poke their head in through the windows to say hello and get a snack. This is one way to truly get up close and personal with the beautiful creatures, feeding them and spending some quality time with the friendly visitors. It is definitely a hotel to check out!
