Embarking on a safari holiday in Botswana where African wildlife roams freely, across floodplains and open savannahs, will teach you a lot about yourself. Here are 7 things you will learn about yourself while on safari.
Travelling, to any destination for any length of time, whether you are travelling on your own, with a friend or loved one or your entire family, is guaranteed to teach you a few things about yourself. Here is a list of the 7 Things we believe you learn about yourself when you embark on a safari adventure.
Once you have decided to book and pay for your exciting safari holiday to Botswana, you will need to wait a few weeks or a few months before departing, this wait teaches you that you are more patient that you realise. Once the exciting day arrives there is then even more waiting as you head to the airport, wait for your flight, sit on your flight for hours on end and eventually disembark the plane. All this waiting and patience could be put to good use, however; if you take the time to learn about Botswana, its history, people and their culture.
Everyone has basic needs and wants, and as you get older those needs and wants may change. When you are 18 your basic needs and wants may simply be a bed, a bathroom and the occasional shower, but as you get older you find you require a little more luxury and comfort.
Different reasons for travel may also teach you about your different needs and wants; the style of safari you choose for your honeymoon may be very different to the one you choose for your entire family to enjoy. Different safari packages help you to tailor make your safari experience, to ensure all your requirements are met.
While packing for your safari adventure you may find yourself filling a huge bag with every item of clothing you can possibly imagine you might at some point need. A lesson you will learn while on safari is that you never need as much as you think you do. A smaller bag with less clothing will suffice, and it will lower your carbon footprint while travelling.
This lesson can be extrapolated out into other areas of your life. When you meet some of the Botswana locals and learn about their culture and way of life, you may notice how much less they seem to need on a day to day basis.
Less is more. Remember that as you return home.
