Due to the pandemic, some people are still reluctant to leave the country and go see the world like they deserve to, but if you want to travel in the safety of your own state, and maybe feel like you are on a safari, I have the perfect Airbnb for you. Enjoy the perfect safari at Blue Hills Ranch located in McGregor, Texas.

This adventurous rental is home to a 150-acre giraffe and animal sanctuary, and it’s only 20 minutes away from Downtown Waco.

Can you imagine just being in the woods in a lovely cabin relaxed with no one bothering you with your loved one, enjoying breakfast on the balcony, and a giraffe walks up to you for you to feed them? I don’t know about you, but that sounds like paradise to me.

I absolutely love the idea of this two-bedroom, one-bath Airbnb, and it’s only $250 a night. Um, sign me up immediately!

Now I know the only way to win you over is for you to see it for yourself, so here are some photos that convinced me that Blue Hills Ranch will be my next stop for my summer vacation!
