The Rocky Safari is a wild blog where readers learn about solo travel, birding, and how to tackle new adventures in life. This world is full of surprises and when we open ourselves up to experience them, we embark on journeys we never imagined we’d take. I hope you’ve learned a thing or two while reading my posts, laughed with me, and been enjoying your time here!

Partnerships are the backbone of any successful venture and I take them seriously. I seek to partner with select brands to feature specific destinations, products, and attractions. Typically, these places or products should carry some type of a story to dive into and exude fun.

I like to think of myself as a bird-whisperer and an animal lover. I try to showcase animals on my blog whenever I can because they’re another great passion of mine – right alongside travel blogging!

If you’re new here, think of my blog as a safari or a zoo. My website is a collection of unique experiences for people to share, learn from, and enjoy.


So who am I, anyway?

Hi there, I’m Rocky Trifari!

I’m the solo traveler, bird whisperer, backpacker, digital nomad, and peculiar blogger behind this wacky website.

My goal is to eventually visit every country on Earth. I still have a long way to go before I’m finished, but I’m focused on enjoying the process.


What Is The Rocky Safari About?

The Rocky Safari teaches people to approach unfamiliar people, places, and things in life with a sense of child-like curiosity. I want my readers to understand what long-term travel as a lifestyle is all about.

I don’t claim to be perfect at traveling; I’m most certainly not. Instagram has plenty of those kinds of picture-perfect travel bloggers. I take a reality-based approach to travel and go places I never thought I’d go with a whole lot less planning than I ever dreamed I’d be comfortable accepting from myself.

Much like a bird attempting to fly for the first time, sometimes you need to just take the leap and trust in the process.

Mistakes happen and I’ve learned that that’s fine. We’re all here in this life to learn, fumble, get back up, and try again. The goal is to learn and get better. I’m doing my best to live my life responsibly, freely, sustainably, and happily. I want to help you do the same.

Travel doesn’t have to be expensive and you certainly don’t need a full-time job in order to be able to do it. The digital nomad lifestyle is achievable to anyone who seeks it if you’re willing to work hard upfront to put in the time and energy required to create a system that can generate streams of massive, passive income.

Whether you want to learn how to travel, how to blog, or how to make money working online, you’ve come to the right place. At The Rocky Safari, you can learn all of that and more.

Oh, and if you like birds too, as I most certainly do, we’ll get along just fine. If not, well, that’s okay too. (I might try to change your mind.)


My goal is to inspire people to explore the world and to embrace long-term travel as a lifestyle by showing readers how to overcome their fears, earn money online, and travel longer on less.

Why Work With The Rocky Safari?


I’ve been blogging almost my entire life. Sharing things here has become so normalized for me. I’ve grown increasingly comfortable being open, honest, and vulnerable with my readers over the years. They’ve seen me at my highest of highs and lowest of lows. Comments and emails suggest readers find my content funny, relatable, thoughtful, and personal. I believe they are able to really connect with me and that a lot of my posts resonate with readers.
The Rocky Safari began in 2013 when I was a senior in high school wanting to document my lifelong journey. I stuck with this blog all throughout college, while backpacking, while studying abroad, while traveling on vacations, and even throughout a global pandemic. The Rocky Safari isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. You can rest assured knowing your content will remain on the web for years to come. Monthly readers from The Rocky Safari are primarily based in the United States, but also exist in nearly every country on Earth.
Each month, readers subscribe to various services based off of recommendations made on my website. Promotional travel websites and blogging SaaS (Software as a Service) sales comprise some of my fastest-growing segments.
Every blog adopts some of the persona of its primary author. Mine is no exception. This website isn’t some sort of dry, long-winded, painfully-detailed travel encyclopedia. If you enjoy witty, spontaneous, and cleverly-crafted stories, you’ll probably enjoy the content I write.
Readers typically express an interest in trying things based on recommendations I have made. I have a highly-optimistic and positive personality so I tend to highlight the silver lining in everything. Don’t mistake that for skewing the truth. I always present a full picture. I simply choose to focus on the good things in life. I think readers find my perspective refreshing.
My blogging has evolved A LOT over the years. Between my formal background in a trade school for graphic design as well as knowledge from experience and PRACTICE, I know a ton about blogging now and I get better and better every day. My website has evolved a lot over the years. My writing style has become more developed. I am better at photography than I ever used to be. I believe my new posts really capture the essence of a destination through my form of storytelling.
I pride myself on being honest, transparent, and genuine with my readers. I always provide people with detailed explanations, honest feedback, and recommendations that I seriously believe in. It has to be something I would buy or use myself to earn a place on my website.
I used to struggle a bit with procrastination. I never was the type to miss deadlines, but I thought I thrived under stress and pressure. College taught me to work well under those conditions. Unfortunately, while traveling full-time, I learned how difficult it can be to just rely solely on “crunch time” to get everything done that needs to be finished. From not meeting personal deadlines on time, I began to search for better tools and techniques to help me achieve my goals. I have created a much better system to approach my work-life balance now. I no longer struggle to juggle and complete commitments in a timely manner. I follow through and deliver on all of my promises.

While my philosophy in life is all about having fun with things, you can always trust that my content creation will be addressed in the most professional manner possible.

*Other* Top “Visitors” 🙂

Tons of wild animals visit me quite often. I’ve befriended wild animals in The United States, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Spain, and beyond. Once you’re a part of the pack, it’s a friendship that lasts forever.

The picture on the far right showcases Pancake: a sweet Eastern Chipmunk from New Jersey. If you'd like, you can read my post about her to gain a sense of my personality and writing style. Here is the post I created to share her story.

Demographic Info

Readers of The Rocky Safari are generally curious, like-minded individuals who are looking to learn, discover, and be entertained. At our core, no matter where we all come from, we are all humans; Global citizens searching for experiences that bring people closer together.

In particular, I attract animal-lovers, digital nomads, LGBT folks, and introverted personality types because I show these types of people that solo travel can be achievable and done safely.

Gender Inclusive & LGBT Friendly

I suspect a segment of my readership likely does not strictly identify either way, but Google doesn’t have a highly developed method to show this yet.

I know a lot of marketing professionals love to see demographic statistics where one specific gender is targeted. My readership is actually as close to 50/50 as it gets with respect to gender. I must admit, I actually love that about it.

I want a broad and diverse readership because, at our core, we are all human and share the same desires. I don’t think people should feel excluded from a blog because of their gender.

All of my readers have a thirst for information. They seek solutions to their problems, hope to learn new things, and wish to discover new places. They enjoy seeing what a wonderful place this world can be and how fun it is when you open your mind to discover new opportunities.

Age

The vast majority of my readers are young adults.

  1. 40% are 25-34 years old.
  2. 30% are 18-24 years old.
  3. 14% are 35-44 years old.
