A New Way To Meet Animals: Airbnb Launches "Animal Experiences" As a Fun Travel Subcategory

Life's better with animals—and now there's a new way to meet them!

In an effort to offer consumers a more complete travel experience, Airbnb has expanded its Airbnb Experiences platform to include a new subcategory called 'Airbnb Animal Experiences.' Just as the name suggests, these are immersive travel experiences that involve all types of animals.

Airbnb Animal Experiences is a new branch of the Airbnb platform that lets travelers choose from more than 1,000 different animal-oriented experiences. The experiences are hosted in locations around the world and feature all different kinds of animals. 

Airbnb sets a new standard for animal tourism -  All of the experiences were created with the animal's welfare in mind according to a new animal welfare policy created in collaboration with World Animal Protection. As Airbnb explains: "Airbnb Animal Experiences are hosted by caring experts as an antidote to typical tourist attractions that are notorious for ethical concerns. You will never find an Airbnb Experience where you can kiss a dolphin or ride an elephant."

Here are some exotic examples from their website.

Kitten Airbnb Is A Real Thing And We're Obsessing

Welcome to Kitten BnB! The purr-fect vacation in New York City! You get to rent out this lovely home for a stay that features everything you need PLUS kittens! 

The idea all began when Jess Thoren stumbled into kitten fostering in August of 2016. Jess and her husband Erik first started an Instagram account to help get foster kittens adopted but when Jess joked that their home was a cozy bed and breakfast for their little guests, thus setting a chain of events in motion. They then came to the conclusion that the best way to get these kittens adopted was if people spent time with them in a house, much like they would be doing if they were to adopt. 

Jess and Erik opened up their home to share the joy of kittens, and in doing so have gotten countless of kittens adopted into their furever homes!

If you're looking for your next purr-fect vacay -- look no further!
