Practicalities & Logistics

Why go on a guided nature tour?

Depending on where you’re traveling, there is a good chance there will be little to no cell reception. Trying to connect to your GPS or internet if you get lost without cell service is a frustrating and nerve wracking experience. If you’re going to a new country, it can be difficult to navigate remote trails or national parks, especially if you don’t speak the language.

This should in no way discourage you from getting out in nature during your travels, but why go through all the stress when you can go on a guided nature tour? Tour guides are out nearly every day, so they know the land, allowing you to just have fun without trying to navigate by yourself. Tour guides may also know unusual and interesting facts about the area that will help connect your nature experience to the local community, culture, and heritage. And they’ll often know of secret viewing or picnic spots that the average traveler would not know about. A guided nature tour can keep you safe and stress free, allowing for the best possible travel experience.

Proper National Park Behavior

When going to a National Park, it’s crucial to behave properly.

Here are some helpful National Park travel tips:

  • First and foremost, clean up after yourself! Throw your trash away in appropriate places. If there is nowhere to dispose of your trash, find a bag to keep the trash in until you can properly dispose of it.
  • When animals are involved, do not disturb them. Stay back, and pay attention to all signs regarding behavior around animals. This is for your safety. Do not cross fences, and don’t try to pet animals.
  • Stay on routes that posted. Don’t cross into unknown territories.
  • Do not remove items (especially plants!) from the park.
  • Be as quiet as possible. Animals startle when they hear loud noises, so by remaining quiet, you’re more likely to see animals.
