Cheap Gorilla Safari – Many travelers around the world would love to go for a gorilla tour; the complaint has been that the cost of a gorilla safari is much more than the normal amount of money one would spend on a holiday in Africa. This is because, you can only see the mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda, Just one permit per person costs USD 500. So how can you visit these endangered species without spending a lot of money.

The first tip is book in advance. It’s always advisable to contact a travel agent for this tour, this can help you to negotiate price reductions and to also get the worth of your payments. Remember that travel agents are profit makers. When you book your gorilla safari in advance, you will avoid more expenses while getting the very best of the services.

It’s also important for you to choose low cost accommodation, the price for many hotels in the gorilla areas ranges from 100 to about 300 dollars per person. When you reserve your lodge cheaply, you are assured of saving on a gorilla safari. This of course is combined with the season. Choose your travel dates at a time most people are not on vacation. The months between June and September should be avoided since that’s when most tourists visit Uganda and Rwanda.

You can also save by choosing the most inexpensive means of transport, you can take on a bus to one of the areas next to the National Parks, and this will reduce on the cost since most gorilla safari travel agents charge about 150 dollars a day for car hire. A bus will charge about 30 dollars for the journey to the areas close to the national parks.

The final step is choosing the …

Do you find yourself at work feeling as though you are trapped in your job or in your lifestyle.

Travelling is an Education.

Travelling can not only be a great adventure where you experience new places & people, but an education on life itself, especially if you travel at a young age. As a young person you have all these pre-conceived ideas about what certain places in the World look like. Things like what the cities and landscape look like and what the people are like. It is not till you make the effort to go to check out these landscapes, that they are a lot different to what you think and usually far exceed your imagination.

Generally speaking, the people are always welcoming to their part of the world, and they cannot do enough for you. They are happy to help you find your way and point out places you may not have heard about. It is also interesting to see the lifestyles that the different people lead when comparing the people who live in city to the people by the beach, in country or even in the outback. It can give you a whole new appreciation to what you have, or would like to have, in your own life.

Travelling has taught me many things, including having an open mind about the world. Because if your mind is closed you will miss out on all the good things in life.

Travelling opens Opportunity.

Thanksgiving Adventure Travel – It’s that time of the year again and families across the United States are finalizing their plans for that trek to the in-laws or that old family home you grew up in back in the day. Either way it’s sure to be a trip full of great food and never-to-be-forgotten stories. Thanksgiving is the most heavily traveled holiday of the year and a little-known fact is it’s also one of the holidays where RV’s are a preferred mode of adventure travel. Think about it, it’s cheaper than flying and renting a hotel room, it’s roomier than doubling up at grandma’s house and the kids love it!

Some reasons to rent an RV for the holidays are that:

RV Travel is More Economical. Unbelievably, it’s true you can actually save money by renting a RV for your Thanksgiving or other holiday travels. Gas prices across America have been steadily coming down in the past few weeks a perfect reason to decide to drive instead of flying. Speaking of flying… did you know that you could rent an RV for a week for the cost of two plane tickets to most places in the US? It’s true; the cost to rent an RV is cheaper than the cost to fly a family of two or more. Check out the web for rental options across the US.

Another reason is, no Hotel Costs. When you travel in a RV, there is no need for a hotel room when you get to your destination. Your mode of transportation also serves as your hotel room. Not just any hotel room either! Your RV rental, in most cases, comes with a fully functioning kitchen, family room, TV’s, separate sleeping areas for parents and kids. Best of all, you can park it in …

When most people think of Spain, they think Sun, Sea and Sangria. But what about the people who are looking for more than just your average beach holiday? Spending your time visiting museums, taking in local culture and sampling regional foods are all a great way to explore a new city, but once all that’s over, then what?

Being such a diverse culture, it’s no surprise that there are more than enough adventures to be had all over the country. Why not take a trip to the Spanish Pyrenees Mountains – a huge area with endless possibilities for winter sports. If you’re looking for something a little different, try White-water rafting. The sport is still relatively new here so it’s never overcrowded. The Noguera Pallasera River is 28 miles of clear water. You can ride the river on a hydrospeed- the most extreme of all the water activities. With just a river board in your hands and flippers on your feet, you have to be faster than the current to conquer these rapids. For maximum thrills, let yourself be tossed the nine miles downstream from Llavorsm to Rialp. Aim for May or June when the river’s at its racing best, swollen with snowmelt from the mountains that block the northern horizon.

For a travel adventure out of the water, head south to The Garganta el Chorro tekking town. Two and a half miles long, up to 1,300 feet deep, and, in places, barely 30 feet wide, this trek is really only for experienced climbers with proper equipment. Few destinations in the world would match the trekking dimensions of The Garganta el Chorro but with its scary routes up the near-vertical walls of the gorge’s steepest sections, this is not a trek for the faint hearted.

Heights and Water not your …

Travel agencies also design tour packages for tourists in order to guide them through the particular high points of a destination. At times the possibility of visiting a territory is so vast and diverse that a tour package has to be devised to accommodate the best possible bargain within limited time and money. They might also just restrict a tour to a particular area as per the wish of the customers.
