Airbnb Experiences’ newest category connects world wanderers with over 300 animal species all over the globe. Airbnb Animal Experiences offers responsible ways for travellers to observe, play with and/or care for animals. It all happens alongside biologists, conservationists or fellow animal lovers to learn more about these creatures and gain a better appreciation for them.

Featured experiences include afternoon tea in Loch Lomond with Hamish the sheep and a local sheep farmer; a paddleboarding lesson in Fort Lauderdale with Mr. Beaches the corgi alongside you; and a walk with a wildlife conservationist in South Africa to spot penguins.

As an evolution to outdated and inhumane practises like riding dolphins and elephants, Airbnb Animal Experiences operate with an animal welfare policy created in collaboration with World Animal Protection.
