How to find nature tours wherever you go in the world
When you’re in New Zealand, Habitat Tours is the easy way to take a day trip out of Auckland and see some of the wonderful plant- and wildlife that’s right here on our doorstep.
But when you’re travelling around the globe, how can you find similar experiences?
Fortunately, there’s a handy website that can help you track down all the nature tours you could ask for.
Its called Blue Sky Wildlife, and it has just launched its website to the world.
At the time of launch, there were 33 established and trusted wildlife tour operators listed in locations in 24 different countries. Of course, Habitat Tours is one of them, but there are also experiences such as safari tours in Namibia, canoeing trips in Australia, and photography adventures in Colombia.
You can search by your location, by your interests (such as walking, photography, or ecotourism), or even by the species you most want to see!
When you click into a tour company that appeals to you, you can take a close look at the experience to see if it’s the one for you. For example, you can browse their tour options, have a look at the wildlife you might encounter, learn about the company’s involvement in conservation projects, read through customer reviews, and even enquire about a booking once you’ve made your decision.
Plus, each tour operator appears with a collection of beautiful images taken during previous trips, so you can get a visual ‘feel’ for what you might expect on tour!
Chris Larsen, of Blue Sky Wildlife, explained the company’s intentions in launching this helpful website:
“We were inspired to launch this website as there was nothing like this for the wildlife
industry and to elevate conservation as a selection criteria for nature travellers without
compromising on their overall wildlife experience,” he said.
