What an adventure this has been! Our safari into South Africa started with its glorious coast of inviting beaches and lush vineyards and concluded in the vast grasslands where many of the animal kingdom’s most majestic creatures roam.
Welcome to the Cradle of Mankind, the famed birthplace of man where some of the oldest hominid fossils have been found. Once you have visited Africa, she will stay with you always. Thank you for visiting our beautiful land.
Human beings are now the single most powerful force of change on the planet. There should not be a single person who thinks, “I can’t do anything.” Because just by existing as we do, at the top of a chain of energy and consumption, we are already doing something…for better or for worse. Every decision we make makes a difference to the natural world. So, you don’t need a backpack, a pith helmet, and an all-terrain vehicle to be a conservation hero. You can be a conservation hero anywhere you choose, simply by paying attention to your own choices, and by supporting those organizations, like the Disney Conservation Fund, who are working to make a difference.
