Increased awareness about animal conservation, global authorities working towards boosting wildlife tourism, and the advent of digital nomadization where various countries are permitting digital nomad visas are factors driving the industry. Recent news on global warming and the extinction of species have pursued many travelers to go for wildlife tourism.

This is propelled by the factor that entry fees of various sanctuaries and animal parks are invested towards the conservation of flora and fauna. The positive impact of such travel makes travelers visit these places frequently.

Such tourism also increases knowledge about the environment and sensitizes citizens towards its protection and growth. Post-pandemic, various organizations have made remote work a permanent culture. With this, there is a global dominance of solo traveling due to the growing concepts of 'independence' and 'personal growth'.

There has been a surge in travelers who earn a living through remote work. An article by Travel Off Path suggests that in the U.S., there has been an addition of 6 million more digital nomads than in the pre-pandemic era, and the worldwide figure stands at 35 million. With countries like Jamaica, Thailand, and Ecuador issuing digital nomad visas, this will further propel the industry growth.

Many travelers prefer traveling in groups with friends owing to the benefits of such trips. Various resorts and hotels have been cropping up in and around wildlife sanctuaries, which allows travelers to visit such places with friends for leisure as well as adventure. Key players allow travelers to choose their group and form a package, which encourages more travelers to travel with groups. For instance, Thomas Cook allows consumers to customize the number of adults traveling, and according to that, the prices are set. Sustainable operating practices are adopted by companies to attract more consumers.

As wildlife tourism impacts the protection of flora and fauna along with the indigenous communities residing in the area, these companies contribute their efforts toward conserving, reforesting, and charity practices to be more eco-friendly. Activities, such as reforestation, reduction of carbon footprints, and donating funds towards the protection of endangered species are undertaken by various organizations operating in wildlife tourism.

For instance, Exodus Travels uses small, locally run accommodations instead of big hotel chains to reduce environmental impact on surroundings during their Discover Namibia trip. Also, all the accommodations are equipped with energy-efficient light bulbs to save resources.
