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
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. Maybe you
have a burning desire to get out of the rat race and go and explore what the
world or your country has to offer. Do you sit at work looking out the window
thinking about your next Travel Adventure. Well chances are you are suffering
from severe case of Travelitis.
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
Adventure travel tourism has
always been very a sought-after past time, passion an even a profession.
Several organizations and companies engage in the act of making your travel a
far better experience than you possibly have dreamed of. A travel agency is a
retail business that sells travel products and services. They often work on
behalf of suppliers, such as airlines, car rentals, cruise lines, hotels,
railways, sightseeing tours and package holidays that combine several products.
A travel agency deals with
both regular tourists as well as commercial and business travel clients. They
might also provide services relating to foreign tours as well as tours within a
country. 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.
Here are some tips for
choosing a perfect travel agency and planning your holiday:
A background enquiry for cross
checking the CTC (Certified Travel Counselor), CTA (Certified Travel
Associate), or DS (Destination Specialist) professional certifications
Conduct a research yourself
about the place you want to visit. Present your findings to a travel agent who
can help with professional knowledge and experience
Plan your travel much ahead
especially when booking airline tickets, cruise packages, and hotel
accommodations. The earlier you start, the better
The type of people you would
meet on vacation could have a major impact on your vacation. A travel agent can
provide the insider knowledge of other travelers you are most likely to
encounter at your hotel or cruise …
