It is said that we all see the world through our own keyhole of perception. In other words, our views of what the world is like and what is important is completely informed by the people we know and the places we have been, not to mention the way in which we have been raised.
As such, even the most learned amongst us will have a very narrow view of what the world is about and the things that truly are important. Which is why travel can be so important in helping understand not just what the world is about, but also who we truly are.
In much the same way that we tend to accept the beliefs of any religion we are born into, we also tend to accept the views of the people in the same region as us, and moral compasses tend to be born from experiences. Therefore, the more we travel, the more complete our moral compass can be and the more we are likely to be able to think more clearly about the world without it being all skewed to one specific way of thinking.
Taking a safari holiday can be a great way to start. Whilst it will indeed be a holiday and will offer you the chance to enjoy luxury and genuinely unwind, a safari holiday will also give you a glimpse at a whole different culture. Seeing such a different way of life can help us understand far more about what is really important in life and help us to learn more about ourselves in the process.
Saying that travelling or heading away on African safaris can truly change someone may sound hyperbolic, but in many ways it can indeed be the case. As such, African safaris are the perfect place to start for anyone who wants to expand their view of the world, without sacrificing luxury and comfort.
