Encounters with the Wild
Wildlife tourism mostly encompasses non-consumptive interactions with wildlife, such as observing animals in their natural habitats or interacting with captive animals in zoos or wildlife parks, more like `window shopping’. Select parks offer personal interactions with wild animals. A dream come true for any wildlife enthusiast, an up close and personal encounter with any big cat is totally awesome. Responsible travellers though, must always respect the animals natural instincts and follow behavioural and safety guidelines thoroughly when inside animal enclosures such as this `lion encounter’ in Mauritius.
