Nothing beats being in the same environment with the wild animals and being able to see them up close, at least as up close as safely possible, or relaxing at the beach, swimming and basking. It is a once in a lifetime experience, and for most people an experience that stays with them for the rest of their lives. Still, even when going on holiday at a location where the possibilities are as endless as Borneo Island Resort, there are things you must think about.

The weather

The weather should be the first consideration. If you are going out on a wildlife tour, remember that there will likely not be much in form of protection from the physical elements. If you bring the kids along, you must make sure they understand the weather conditions of the places they will be visiting at the time when they visit. Sunscreen is a must have when going on those boat rides, especially for the kids. The older people might be able to withstand the hot sun but the damage on the kids will be more than a beautiful brown tan.

Plan with the whole family in mind

Schedule the travel times with the kids in mind. For instance, some companies might prefer picking up the entourage and taking them straight to the game reserves. If you have kids, schedule some time for them to recover from the jet lag. Parents know what travel with tired and grumpy kids will do to them. They might sleep on the way, or stay awake and get on everybody’s nerves. Either way, it will beat the whole point of everyone enjoying the safari.

Cultural differences

Think about the differences in culture and how they might be a problem in various aspects of the journey. Learn parts of the language and culture of the places you are going; this will make it easier to communicate and break the language barrier, and generally make the journey more bearable.

Even with all these in mind, allow yourself the time and space to enjoy the journey and be surprised. Not everything will go to plan, but ultimately the surprises should only be the pleasant ones.
