Where to Travel Based on Your Personality

Where to Travel Based on Your Personality

With a finite amount of vacation time in a year, it’s vital that any travel you do undertake is worth using up all of your leave days. While we all often love to talk of travel in a general sense, the truth is that there are as many types of travellers as there are personalities on the planet. For some, the idea of roughing it without a cell phone or human contact for a week sounds like a tiny slice of paradise, while others prefer to live in the lap of luxury in some exotic destination. We’re taking a look at these different personality types in the hopes that you’ll find it a lot easier to choose your next trip with Jenman African Safaris by taking your personality into account.

The Altruistic Traveller

If you’re the kind of person who is always looking for ways to give back to people and communities that are less fortunate than your own, then you’re an Altruistic Traveller. You love to spend your vacation time making the world a better place for those around you, while radiating a sense of creativity and compassion for your fellow man. Your nurturing nature will often send you on all sorts of adventures, both near and far, that could range from building houses in South America to assisting wildlife in Africa. If this sounds like you, then you’ll be excited to learn about the Jenman Give Back Cultural Field Trip.

The Posh Traveller

Ranging from museums and tours to first-hand encounters and relics of the past, you’ll be the first in line for any vacation that will leave you feeling intellectually enriched. If you’re nodding your head while you read this and feeling enticed for some intellectual travel, then our Luxury Safaris are just the thing for you!

The Offbeat Traveller

Artistic and unconventional, the Offbeat Traveller fancies themselves on a never ending search for meaning.

The Extreme Traveller

If your idea of a good vacation involves getting your pulse racing as you try your hand at the latest extreme experience that’s on offer, you’re an Extreme Traveller who is sure to be enticed by the magical land of Zimbabwe. Intensely energetic, Extreme Travellers are considered somewhat insane by those around them, particularly when they learn about their repertoire of death-defying adventures. Victoria Falls, also known as the Smoke That Thunders by locals, is an Extreme Traveller’s perfect playground with an array of adrenalin pumping activities to choose from.

With the ability to choose between bungee jumping from Victoria Falls, a flip in an helicopter and white water rafting down the Zambezi River, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to fulfilling your Extreme Travelling heart’s desires.

If you’ve heard the old adage “curiosity killed the cat” more times than you care to admit, you can probably count yourself in as a Curious Traveller. Lovers of a challenge, Curious Travellers choose to spend their vacations going off the beaten path as they explore all that the world has to offer. Due to your inquisitive nature, it’s safe to say that a vacation with a healthy dose of learning about new things, while you explore a new destination will be right up your travel alley. If you’re the curious kind, then our Ethiopian Cultural Explorer is perfect for you.
