Wanderlusters might be having the hardest time holding up in quarantine. Cooped up to safety, stepping out of quarantine will see the world of traveling not remaining the same for a long time, especially for nature trails and wildlife tourism. Where sustainability will meet safety, the journey will be expectedly different yet unique. In conversation with one of India’s leading responsible safari companies, Pugdundee Safaris...Where will nature trail lead next?

What according to you will be the changes in the way people used to holiday?

The way people used to travel and holiday will change drastically, especially in the near future. The hospitality industry might need to re-invent itself. It will be a while before they come out of the shadows of this pandemic. Till then a lot of us will holiday much lesser than we used to. There will be a paradigm shift in the way travelers reach a holiday destination. Driving will be the preferred option, followed by flights. Trains will take a back seat due to the long hours and limited hygiene possibilities. Travelers will also prefer to use brands that can reassure guests of safety and measures taken by them. Reputed and tried-and-tested brands will be first to see some momentum. Boutique hotels, retreats, and nature getaways will be a preferred choice as usually the accommodation is spread out in a much larger area and the number of rooms is limited.
