Adventure Vacation

Gordons Bay BeachAn Exciting Adventure Vacation is Just a Click Away

What level of adventure vacation is right for you? You need to ask yourself this question before booking your travel plans. What constitutes an adventure vacation for one person may be a lot more than another can handle. You need to take into consideration your age and any physical limitations you may have before embarking on a rigorous adventure vacation.

When most people think of an adventure vacation they think of a safari in Africa. There are many different types of safaris and even luxury safaris, which sort of cuts down on the adventure part. Many tour operators run guided tours and safaris through game reserves in Africa.

Kenya is one of the most popular countries to go to and you get to go through Masai Mara National Reserve in Land Rovers, clicking away with your digital camera. You will see lions, leopards, buffaloes, elephants and rhinos as they trek from the Serengeti through the massive park.

Alaska is a great destination for an adventure vacation and there are several ways to go. You can travel by rail if you want (www.alaskarailtours.com) or fly over the Denali in a private plane, spotting polar bears from the air (www.alaskadenalitours.com).

The weather can change drastically from day to night to day so bring lots of clothing that you can layer on and peel off in a hurry. The wildlife is abundant and you will see caribou, wolves, bears and eagles all living in their natural habitats.

There are several Central America countries that offer adventure vacation packages. Most people go to U.S. friendly countries such as Panama, Belize or Costa Rica, but you can also find great low-cost adventure vacation packages in Nicaragua.

Cape Town

An adventure vacation in any of these beautiful countries usually includes some time spent in the natural rain forests. You can kayak through lush rivers, zip line through the jungle canopy or hike through ages-old forests.

All of these countries also offer dive adventure vacations where you can skin dive onto pristine reefs and underwater caves. Sport fishing is abundant on the coast and you can spend the day wrestling giant marlin or swordfish.

In Costa Rica there is one tour guide that takes you on a river boat trip then gets out and feeds giant crocodiles by hand near the Tarcoles Bridge, also known as the Crocodile Bridge because of the hundreds of crocs that swim there. This crazy adventure tour guide takes raw chicken parts out of a bucket and actually tosses them into the mouths of wild crocodiles that are at least fifteen feet long.

If your budget allows and you are fit enough, you can do some mountain climbing in the Swiss Alps or the Himalayas. For these types of adventure vacations you really need to be prepared and take some mountain climbing classes.

If this does sound right for you then you will be amazed by the total experience of attempting something that relatively few people have tried. A real adventure vacation should involve some risk or else it is just another vacation.
