WILDLIFE BIOLOGIST TRAVEL TO AFRICA

(Page 1/2)

For a wildlife biologist there is a very thin line between work and travel as the decision on where to travel is often influenced by the long ingrained elements of a biologist’s work. Figure it, is there a time or place that a wildlife researcher wouldn’t stop to give a second glance and maybe a slight pat (where safely possible) to a living thing.

While a lot of people travel to Africa for the safari experience, a biologist travels with an agenda to challenge, confirm or reinforce the classroom learning and just to “see” the wildlife. For a wildlife researcher the African travel experience needs to be more holistic than a morning and afternoon game drive. His/her safari needs to bring as much nature as possible and cut off the hyped touristy drama of village dances etc. How can a biologist plan this kind of African travel, without busting the bank?

The answer is in knowing where and how you want to spend your money.

Nature safaris for biologists may emphasize much on the exclusiveness of the African safari camp used but are you traveling to Africa for the camp or the nature experience? Often for every over-your-budget safari camp, there is possibly (and often) a similar one that you could stay in comfortably and have access to the same wildlife viewing areas. In no way are we saying that you shouldn’t pay for the most expensive safari camp but you should not always equate price and the nature experience.
