Living in suburbia, there is nothing like getting away from it all and going into nature, and experiencing everything that urbanization can't offer. Some take it a step further, and seek out foreign lands in order to experience the real wild. So they go on a guided Safari tour with guides and cars that gives them the most authentic experience possible.
But there is no doubt that being up close and personal with animal is an incredible opportunity they probably won't have again. And for some of these people, after their experience, they might never want to again.
Let's face it, the average person cannot place Kazakhstan on a map, even if you paid them. But apparently the hijinks that Russians are so famous for all over the internet, also extend to the former USSR's territories turned independent nation-states. This guy took being drunk at the zoo to a whole new level. Now I am sure most of us have at least dreamt about riding a wild safari animal. This guy clearly had a little too much liquid courage in him when he pulled this stunt off. The culprit wasn't caught, but police are searching for him with the intent to press charges. Check out all the juicy details from the stunt, find out how special this particular zoo is, and decide if you might have found your next vacation spot. The animals would sure appreciate it, but I would avoid trying to ride them..
Redditor ProfessorLaser makes a clever point about the ultimate cliche of African landscape photography:
1) Select a base image
2) Cut and paste in a picture of a giraffe
3) Darken base image by increasing saturation level
4) Darken the giraffe by increasing shadow level.
