The daily work routine and stress which people go through can only be reduced by adopting a break from the robotic life. Understanding the facts, we are presenting a list of 5 most green destinations on the earth. This article talks about travelling destinations, which are not only home to some of the rarest species of animals and plants but also how you can play a role in their protection and preservation.
Botswana is most famous for its savannas, which serve as ideal destination for a safari. Ranging from the lush green vegetation in the Okavango delta to the deserts of the south, this place has the right blend of wildlife and vegetation at its best. Botswana is suffering from drought and desertification, so by doing your bit you can help this small country come back on track.
If Botswana is all about wildlife and safari, then Belize is home to sea life and under water adventurer. As a visitor you get to see the Mesoamerican Reef, the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere. Chance of a one to one with a shark or a whale is as high as the high tides during the afternoons. You can also visit the local fisherman group called Friends of nature. This group is dedicated to protecting the coral reef and supporting the local fishing population. The ancient Mayan ruins are also on the travelling menu.
