Ecotourism in Africa

Many people think that the prefix “eco” in the word eco-tourism comes from the words ecosystem or ecology – and therefore consider the concepts of natural tourism and eco-tourism to be equivalent. However, despite the fact that the roots of eco-tourism can be found in nature tourism, this word has a broader meaning.

The UN considers ecotourism not only a segment of the tourism market, but also a whole philosophy. “Ecological” – means oriented towards the environment and society. Continue reading

A ticket, some money in your pocket – and go. However, stop, still a visa and accommodation! .. And here hostels can also be very useful, because the main expense item in every trip is exactly accommodation.
As you know, hotels have the right to send invitations and provide visa support. Reservation of hostel accommodation is the basis for obtaining a tourist visa to some European countries, namely to the UK, France, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Italy. This is the cheapest way to get a visa (except, perhaps, invitations from friends). The cost of an invitation from a hostel is about 20-30 dollars. Continue reading
