Safari Vs. Zoo? Your thoughts ...

Safari or Zoo? What are your thoughts?

I personally have to sit on the fence on this one! I actually feel that both are excellent and both, of course, very different, but if you look at it from a conservation point, zoos do a wonderful job.

Take the Australia Zoo. You might know the owner, Steve Irwin, the great Aussie TV presenter who was known to the world as the Crocodile Hunter with his exploits in crocodile rescue. His zoo, which is today run by his wife Terri, ably supported by the rest of the family, is one of the most searched for words on Australia and draws visitors from across the world.

Safaris, on the other hand, allow us to get as close to wild animals, with no barriers, as it is possible to do! Thankfully, in the main, these wonderful game drives are for no more than shooting pictures with your camera and to be able to get a feel for how it is to be so unfettered in the big, wide world!

Choices, choices! If you want help with either your tailor made Australia travel or your South Africa travel, contact us at Tailor Made Luxury Travel for your own personalised travel itinerary.
