Five once-in-a-lifetime vegan vacations
Fantasizing about trips you can’t currently afford is the travel-lover’s equivalent to an online shopping cart filled but never purchased.
Maybe over-the-top or other worldly vacationspart of your immediate or imagined future, but what follows are five fully-vegan trips so extraordinary, they’ll make you want to quit ‘real life’ for good.
Yes, really. You can go on an entirely plant-based safari. In Botswana. This real life. While this certainly is an over-the-top trip (that comes with the price tag to prove it), it’s tailored to be an animal-lovers dream.
Vegan Safari Africa itineraries offer such bucket-list experiences as hot-air balloon rides, luxury island camping, adventure boating and night-time wilderness exploration. This will blow your biannual Cancun resort trip right out of the watering hole.

You can skip the New Year’s Eve depression, and pressure to make out with a stranger, by catching a not-so-casual river cruise on the Rhine. Meandering its way through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands, this six-day journey is not likely one you’d soon forget.
In case this doesn’t already sound too good to be true, the boat offers live music, a Jacuzzi, a fitness centre and an open bar. So you can go ahead and tell your family you won’t be around this year.

The India Vegan Food Adventure from Intrepid Travel cuts all the work out of plant-based touring for you.
In an eight-day guided trip, which hits Kanota, Jaipur, Agra and New Delhi, you can experience traditional Indian cuisine without worrying if it’s plant-based. Also, culture. Oh, and one of Rajasthan’s ‘finest heritage hotels’. Not a bad deal at less than $1,200.
