Ecotourism What is ecotourism? Ecotourism is usually exotic and often threatened in natural environments. This type of tourism is often to observe wildlife and their natural habitat. This is better than any average tourism because wild life is not affected by this. Whatâ€™s in it for the people? This type of tourism attracts more people to see the savanna in live action. People pay more money to see a live animal than to buy a dead one. The guides can make a huge income by using this technique. The tourists stay at eco-friendly resorts, use renewable energy and use waste water that is recycled. This all makes it part of the experience and an adventure.
