An Animals Perspective


The world has many wonders, and seeing mother nature’s variety of animals can often be a travelers highlight. From spotting giraffe and rhinos through binoculars on a Kenyan safari to putting snakes around your neck in Marrakesh’s Big Square, to swimming with dolphins in Florida, animals are a big part of travel.

It can be wonderful to see and experience animals that we might not see at home and although I still have some animal experiences left to tick off my bucket list, I do feel that I have managed to create quite a cool compilation of animal photos.

Here are some of my highlights;

However, as wonderful as many of my global animal experiences have been, I can’t help but wonder what they must think of it all? What do they think of us taken dozens of photos and posing vainly next to them? What is their perspective?

 

What are your views on animal tourism? Right or wrong? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
