Wildlife destinations in Africa that you need to check out

Wildlife destinations in Africa you need to check out. It’s holiday season and travelling is one of the things that makes it more merrier.

It’s that time of the year where families come together. Or you get an opportunity to have some quality me time if you prefer your own company. All in all, it’s time to just relax and have some good time.

Beaches and big hotels maybe most preferred by many. Enjoying some vitamin D and sand bathing. What if you still get that vitamin D and get to make awesome memories. This is because Africa is hot, literally hot. Vitamin D from the sun is everywhere every day at least twelve hours.

Africa is still developing, so most of it is still in its raw state. Developments are yet to cover all places. So you will be able to get an insight of how things ran many years ago in its remote places. Simply, Africa is full of surprises and very welcoming to everyone in the world.

That said, what are some of these places can you be able to enjoy all these.

Here we go:

Extinction means forever

“Humanity can no longer stand by in silence while our wildlife are being used, abused and exploited.
It is time we all stand together, to be the voice of the voiceless before it’s too late. Extinction means forever.”
Paul Oxton

Climate change, global warming, extinction of species, among others have been in our news for many years. But recently, it has been getting some backup. People are more alert and interested to understand what it entails. Although we are not yet where we need to be, but at least we are making good progress.

Nations have been holding talks and conferences to find solutions for a better environment. Everyone is interested in and working for both a green economy and blue sky. Climate change agenda is finally penetrating into governance.

Did you know that there some countries with no wildlife in the wild. But rather in zoos and controlled areas. This is due to different factors such as:

  • Land encroachment.
  • Introduction of invasive species.
  • Over-hunting (over-fishing included).
  • Over exploitation.
  • Human-wildlife conflicts.
  • And many others.

Wildlife are amazing creatures to interact with especially the ones in the wild. The captured ones are more like the domestic animals due to the controlled conditions.

Just like the way we enjoy watching nature documentaries. It’s way cooler enjoying a game drive or camping and being able to be with the animals. Studying them is one of the most interesting study you could ever want to. They will always surprise and amaze you.

Have you ever watched the simplest animals like butterflies, beetles, ants, wasps. Get to observe how they operate and relate with each other. You will notice they are not very different from us. As well as surprise you how organized they are.

Imagine all that awesomeness disappearing due to our negative impact to the environment. A planet with no wildlife will be like a graveyard. No birds to wake us up with beautiful songs, no cricket noises in the evening and no watching lions pursuing an antelope. It will be a boring planet.

Picture a very busy city like New York or even Nairobi. The heavy traffic of both vehicles and humans. Running up and down like mad men and women. Some of them not knowing where they are heading or doing. They are just on the move.

The atmosphere filled with harmful gases and fresh air because a looked for commodity. Cities that run around the clock whereby you easily miss out weekends and holidays. Since you fail to recognize them due to busy and tight schedules.

Extinction means forever. And there’s no coming back. It’s a dead dead situation. Once it claims something, it goes for good. Just like dinosaurs and other extinct species did.
