Holidays often have a relaxing attitude, but sometimes we need something more, for a dose of adventure to charge the batteries. The way in which adventure is defined is related, but it includes everything from browsing to well-hidden corners of the world to unforgettable experiences conquering human endurance. We’ve found and presented you with ten unique travel suggestions for the unknown and exciting.
Conquer the top of Kilimanjaro
Mount Kilimanjaro in the northeast of Tanzania is the highest mountain in Africa with a height of 5,895 meters. Climbing on the continent’s tallest peak is demanding, but not very technical, as long as you take the appropriate safety measures. Now there is a new route on the north side of the mountain so you can complete the journey a little easier within a day. Once you reach the top you will be rewarded with a unique panoramic view of Kenya.
Safari in Namibia
In order not to misunderstand, the only shutter you will use on this trip is that of the camera. In Namibia special safaris are organized in protected areas, where you can see some of the most impressive wildlife animals, such as rhinos, lions, gatherers and elephants. So you can admire (and safely) the splendor of African nature and learn more about these unique and unfortunately extinct animals.
Meet the dragon of Komodo
The dragon of Komodo is actually a lizard that can reach 3 meters and it is considered as a protected animal. A lot of people who visit Indonesia, decide to spend some days in a Komodo island resort and get in touch with this great animal.
Exploration of the Pharaoh tombs of Sudan
Pyramids may be interwoven with Egypt, but to the east of the Nile, Sudan, there are over 200 pharaoh tombs from ancient times. Dust the bersalain Indiana Jones and close a Sudan ticket and head for Meroe in the eastern Sahara to browse the dozens of tombstones of the ancient “black pharaohs” of ancient Nubia. Still there are excavations and researches in the area, as there are many unanswered questions about this ancient civilization.
Cross the Gobi desert with nomads
The Gobi desert extends from the north and northwest parts of China to southern Mongolia and was a key part of the Genesis Khan Empire and the Silk Road. Geopolitical associations and shopping streets may have changed since then, but you can still experience the exciting nomadic journey. Apart from the wonderful landscapes and steppes, if you arrange your trip in July, it will coincide with Nadam, the national feast of the country with fighting, riding and archery.
The “lost world” of Borneo
The largest island in Asia, Borneo, has a huge biodiversity and is home to many rare and exotic animals and plants. The best place to explore the tropical forest of the island is in the isolated Malia basin in Malaysia. There you will find the endangered rhinoceros of Sumatra, unique leopards, as well as many scientists from all over the world.
In the footsteps of the wolves of Belarus
In recent years, infrastructures in Belarus have greatly improved, so a short trip to this enclosed country of Eastern Europe is easier than ever. Once you get to the country, head to Naliboki where local natives will take you for a safari in the forest for bison, beast, eagle and wolf.
Unforgettable road trip to Route 66
The “Street Mother,” the popular “Route 66” of almost 4,000 kilometers, is one of America’s most exciting motor-driven routes. Beginning from Harley-Davidson base in Milwaukee, go through the jazz clubs of New York, admire the Grand Canyon, and have a stop in Las Vegas to end up in glamorous Los Angeles.
Adventure in Exotic Andes
Andes is the longest mountain range in the world, covering almost the entire western part of South America. With a length of about 7,000 kilometers the Andes cross seven countries; you have many choices, but Peru most likely offers the most emotions. At Pampa Galera National Park you will see rare sculptures and flamingos, while in the town; you will walk through the paved streets to admire the old churches. After you continue the city of Cusco, your journey ends in the fortified city of Incas, Machu Picchu.
