A New Way To Meet Animals: Airbnb Launches "Animal Experiences" As a Fun Travel Subcategory

Life's better with animals—and now there's a new way to meet them!

In an effort to offer consumers a more complete travel experience, Airbnb has expanded its Airbnb Experiences platform to include a new subcategory called 'Airbnb Animal Experiences.' Just as the name suggests, these are immersive travel experiences that involve all types of animals.

Airbnb Animal Experiences is a new branch of the Airbnb platform that lets travelers choose from more than 1,000 different animal-oriented experiences. The experiences are hosted in locations around the world and feature all different kinds of animals. 

Airbnb sets a new standard for animal tourism -  All of the experiences were created with the animal's welfare in mind according to a new animal welfare policy created in collaboration with World Animal Protection. As Airbnb explains: "Airbnb Animal Experiences are hosted by caring experts as an antidote to typical tourist attractions that are notorious for ethical concerns. You will never find an Airbnb Experience where you can kiss a dolphin or ride an elephant."

Here are some exotic examples from their website.

The White Island Volcano Eruption

The White Island Volcano, off of the coast of New Zealand, known as Whakaari, erupted on Monday December 9th. The tourism hotspot had a number of boats and tourists in the area, and unfortunately around 50 people were on the island at the time of the explosion. So far authorities confirmed 6 dead and 29 in intensive care with burns ranging from 40 to 95%. Rescue efforts are stymied as the volcano has shown signs that another eruption is imminent, and there a number of people still missing.  

Hospitals have ordered 1.2 million square kilometers of skin in order to make sure to have enough to treat the patients, and any additional patients that may be discovered. These are some glimpses of the explosion and aftermath.

Witness the terrifying and strangely beautiful momenta a glacier in Iceland collapses, and sends panicked tourists scrambling for safety. This glacier collapse takes place at one of Iceland's famous outlet glaciers, Breiðamerkurjökull. Nature is scary and this video capturing the raw unstoppable power of a glacier collapsing is a testament to that. We're glad to know that everyone's safe. Talk about a harrowing close call!
