The voice of the responsible traveler, dedicated businesses such as #AsiliaAfrica, and articles such as this will all contribute to the rebirth of #gorongosanationalpark  in #Mozambique . I look forward to sharing the experience with our #CWSafari guests in 2014.

As I plan a return trip to #Namibia this October, I can't help but think of all of the incredible experiences I had exploring the country for the first time last year while completing R&D for #CWSafaris - have a look at some of the images...http://www.cwadventure.com/welcome-to-namibia

Who said not to wear bright colors on #safari!? What fun to watch the animals' reaction to santa on his bicycle....on his way to one of my very favorite lodges in #Africa - #Mfuwe Lodge.

Wildlife trafficking treated as security threat Not only does the booming illegal trade of international wildlife poaching and trading cause serious issues

Africa Bound: Family Tips
Delighting your family on safari means so much more than ticking off the Big 5. Here are a couple guaranteed ways to pack fun and wow into their adventure, using all the senses:
Picture power: Encourage your youngsters to document their first African safari with a disposable or low cost digital camera. Pack one for each of them and inspire them to create their own photo journal upon return. Prep hint: Provide each of the kids with a checklist of images to snap, learning along the way. On the list include the animals that you might spot, local foods, culture and people, things that make them laugh, favorite times of day…almost anything that will spur them to engage with and record their experience. 
Senses surround:  Sensations and imaginations are set free in Africa so help your kids let loose. Recap the day with sensory oriented conversation: How would they describe the smell of  an evening campfire? What sounds did they hear during the day?  What are the sounds of nighttime in the bush? What about the taste of exotic fruits and aromatic curries? How does that dusty path feel under their feet as they track animals? Can they replicate the rhythm of the drums they heard last evening?
Visual spirits:  Africa is a visual treasure trove with animal and nature sightings in abundance.  Along with cameras for the kids, take a small notebook and some pencils. The leopard is on the prowl…encourage your kids to describe or draw the accompanying senses. Did  the grasses make sounds as he passed? In which direction was the breeze blowing? Did they see the shooting stars in the Southern sky? Along with word descriptions and photos encourage your kid to sketch the some of their memories. Africa is a great place to get creative.
Magic is guaranteed on every African adventure. Your job?  Set the stage for your kids to embrace and absorb it. Capture their laughter, curiosity, and connections as they recognize and embrace it.

A wonderful story of the fine balance of community, conservation, and creativity! An inspired student with a conscious, Malafian Chimungu from the colorful village of Mfuwe, #Zambia has turned his artistic talent into doing good. I admired the proof today when a piece of his art arrived on my desk – all the way from the #SouthLuangwa…twisted wire in the form of a giraffe, wire that was confiscated from poachers by the South Luangwa Conservation Society (SLCS). Now selling this wonderful art at the #Mfuwe Lodge curio shop, 80% of the proceeds pay for his schooling and he returns 20% to the SLCS. Read the story here…
