Running with wildlife

tourism that requires physical activity include running, cycling and canoeing. others are kayaking and rock climbing.

Running with wildlife is popular in many African Countries and the events is organized at certain periods in the year. Safety is provided by security personnel however there are attendant risks running in wildlife sanctuaries.

Cycling with wild life

Cycling with wild life is also a risky venture. In America cycling along mountain trails is a popular sport. The danger include bear attacks, cougars or wild cats. However incidents of such attacks are few and far between.

Canoeing and kayaking

Kayaking requires boating down rapid moving water with basic equipment. The rapids are fast moving and there is added risk of accidents from stones buried just below.

To reduce accidents you need a qualified guide including safety gear. Canoeing is similar to kayaking however the water ways are more calm and easier to maneuver.

Rock climbing

The nature to conquer in rock climbing is the mountain side. Participants must be physically strong to successful hike or climb. Similar nature activities are trekking, mountaineering, exploring.

Nature cycling

Nature cycling is more relaxing and fun. The participant rides among fauna, waterways, scenic routes or local wildlife. Proper safety precautions is required with security aids and instructors.

Conclusion

The business is highly lucrative but requires good organizational skill. The logistic are huge including staff, security and safety of the tourists.
