Want to have tea with a naughty sheep? Airbnb launches ‘animal experiences’
By Staff on Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Airbnb is looking to change the way travelers view animal experiences while abroad.
The travel company has launched Animal Experiences to make finding ethical excursions involving some of the world’s most intriguing animals easier to find.
Now you can paddleboard with a corgi named Mr. Beaches or protect African penguins. There’s an option to have tea with naughty sheep.
Customers can now explore more than 1,000 Airbnb Experiences with creatures of all kinds. Each one follows guidelines created with World Animal Protection.
“With technology taking up so much of our lives, it’s easy to feel disconnected from nature and animals,” said Brian Chesky, Airbnb CEO and Co-Founder.
“Life is better with animals, but for many busy people, looking at them through a screen is the closest they can get. With Airbnb Animal Experiences, locals and travelers are just a few clicks away from being alongside them in the real world.”
