Senior Travel – Exotic Destinations For Seniors

Some seniors have always wanted to go trekking through a tropical jungle. Maybe they’ve even thought about going on an African Safari, or visiting the pristine land mass of Antarctica. The fact is that it is now possible to live out your dreams as a senior citizen.

Today, Central and South America, South East Asia and other long-haul destinations are not only becoming more popular, but they are also becoming cheaper than traditional locations such as Europe.

Exotic Cruises

Whether you are moving slowly in the icy waters of Antarctica, navigating through some of the 14,000 plus islands in Indonesia, or cruising through the mirror-clear waters of the Caribbean, exotic cruises are always an option for seniors.

The fact is that today’s cruise line industry can take you to just about any worthwhile spot on the planet, and the competition is so fierce, seniors can find amazing deals out there.

African Safaris

African safaris are unforgettable experiences for senior citizens. Most tours are highly organized, and you only need to choose the country location, which is usually Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa or other destinations.

Seniors can get very close to lions, giraffes, wildebeest, zebras and other local animals. You could be on a jeep trek through the Masai Mara National Reserve observing all of these animals and get a once in a lifetime peek at Mount Kilimanjaro, too.

Jungle Treks

South East Asia offers some ideal locations to go jungle trekking. Indonesia still has a vast area of primary rainforest, and the islands of Sumatra and Kalimantan are the only areas in the world where you can still see orangutans in the wild. You can also take treks on the island of Siberut to see the Mentawai tribe, which still live nomadically.

Thailand has treks to see The Long Neck Tribes and other villages. You can also go on elephant trekking there.

These are just a few options of trekking, and you can also find trekking in some other countries around the world.

Exotic Destinations for Seniors – How to Plan

How much are you planning on spending? Money is always an issue, and prices can run from a hundred bucks to a thousand or more a day, depending on the type of adventure you are looking for. It could even cost less.

Estimate the amount of days you want to stay. Are you traveling during high season or off-peak? This could either cost you more money or save you money.

Ask your travel agent for an exclusive package. Make sure that it includes everything, because there are extras that could really start to add up.

Decide on a safari, trek, cruise, or other form of activities to help determine the exotic destinations you will go.

Exotic Destinations for Seniors – Conclusion

Many seniors want to visit exotic destinations, but they don’t necessarily want to rough it. Those who want some of the comforts that come with modern resorts, such as comfortable lodging and good food, should be willing to pay for these upgrades.

So, it’s still possible to see many exotic destinations around the world and do it in comfort and safety. Either way, there is nothing that can match the experience of getting out and seeing animals in the wild, nomadic tribes, and every other part of nature.
