Duo Boot Ubuntu and Kali Linux

Is it a good idea to run Ubuntu 18.04LTS for a daily desktop type of using while having the chance to practice with Kali Linux in duo boot.

I guess, the short answer is yes, why not! 
But what worries me is my beginner level on Linux in general. I am afraid of start learning Kali and If I am messing up with the system on a daily basis, my Ubuntu environment might become vulnerable too. 

Can someone please advice, how can I install and run both in a safe and secure manner?
I would be also happy if I am just referred to a decent topic, as I had try to look around the internet and didn't get anything clear enough.

Technically, Kali Linux is not meant to be installed,
it is supposed to be a live only distribution.

This does of course not mean that you can not install it,
but I agree with what has already been said: Use it in a virtual machine.

I guess you want to do the typical things and play around with WiFi sniffing
and MITM attacks.
To do these effectively, you don't just need to have an internet connection for your VM,
you need full controll over the WiFi chipset.
This can however easiely be achieved with most virtualisation software,
the same way you would connect a USB device to a VM.


Here is a warning: Do not use Kali Linux as your main operating system.
Kali is designed for pen-testing; To make that easier, several safety features
normaly found in linux distriutions have been turned of.
Kali is also designed as a single-user distribution, where you are always root,
which is also quite unsafe for anything permanent.
So yes, Kali is in fact less secure than most distributions.
