Lucky, lucky Ike! "I was searching for cheetah in an open area and while driving, in front of my vehicle, I saw a funny-shaped object moving across the road. I looked more closely and saw scales – and at that moment I realised what I was looking at. I shouted “PANGOLIN...”! Jakes had no idea what it was as it was the first time he had seen this rare and elusive animal. We watched it for a while and then called the other guides who were out."

The giraffe is one of the most iconic species of Africa. As the tallest mammal on Earth, these creatures are both weird and wonderful with their long legs and necks, large eyes, long eyelashes, striking coat patterns, ambling gait and typically calm demeanour.

Today, on World Giraffe Day we have the chance to celebrate these animals – but we also need to reflect on the fact that these gentle giants are in real danger of disappearing from Africa, a problem that needs to be acknowledged and addressed through intensive research, conservation and educational efforts.

Elize Fourie offers us the chance to learn more about this unique species http://www.wilderness-safaris.com/blog/posts/10-amazing-facts-you-probably-didn-t-know-about-giraffe

"As with every Wilderness Safaris project, our development strategy is based around our 4Cs sustainability framework of Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture. In the Rwandan context of very high rural population densities and the resurgent national identity, Community and Culture are pivotal. To this end we engaged in an extended consultation and engagement process with the members of the Bisate and Nyabatsinde communities, ultimately purchasing 27ha of steep subprime agricultural land with no dwellings from more than 100 families. This resulted in an injection of approximately USD500 000 into the local economy, with this revenue being used for land purchase, housing, business development and education."

Our journeys change lives - helping Africa, its wildlife and its people through ecotourism and our conservation and community projects
Introduction

Wilderness Safaris offers luxury safari experiences in nine African countries, promoting ecotourism and conservation at the same time.

A tour operator and destination management company dedicated to responsible tourism in Africa, its travel divisions – Wilderness Safaris, Wilderness Touring, Wilderness Collection and Wilderness Air – operate a portfolio of some 70 lodges, camps and safaris in nine countries: Botswana, Congo (Brazzaville), Kenya, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the Seychelles.

Wilderness Safaris’ wildlife, marine and cultural safaris in remote, pristine wilderness destinations are specialised, explorative and fun. Wilderness offers guests private access to over eight million acres (three million hectares) of Africa’s finest wildlife reserves, while remaining fiercely committed to protecting the planet’s precious natural and cultural resources.

This Wilderness vision is encapsulated by its 4Cs concept, namely Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce.
