Many African countries are keeping travelers from Europe and the USA out. This forced a mass cancellation of African Safari trips.
The Bad News about your African Safari
The Coronavirus chaos becomes more and more far reaching! Everyday our lives are impacted in a new way. Our world becomes smaller and more restricted. You like many others were so looking forward to that African Safari. Maybe it was your very first… you’d been saving for a long time to finally get out there to see elephants, lions, zebra, rhino, cheetah, and if you’re lucky, even an elusive leopard. Or maybe you’d caught the Africa bug years ago and have multiple African Safaris under your belt. Either way, you’re bummed. You’re very disappointed… but there is something to consider.
How’s that possible you ask? Well, Africa and its wildlife depend heavily on your tourist dollars.
The Game Reserves and National Parks who protect and provide natural habitats for elephants, lions, rhino, buffalo and all the plains game rely heavily on your money. According to The Exchange Tanzania alone has lost over 10,000 tourists. Many of these bound for African Safaris of the famous Serengeti and other Game Reserves.
The Good News about your African Safari
Okay, so you’re not going on that African Safari right now, however, you can still capture that African spirit. The one that draws you to Africa… to its majesty… to its soul filling warmth.
Although you’re sad about your cancelled trip there is something very positive you can do. You can take some of that money and help lessen the impact Coronavirus is having on Africa.
Lessen the Impact of Coronavirus
For the ELEPHANTS…
People like Lynn and her team of Ranger Scouts who protect elephants and their home in Malawi. Because you can’t go and spend a few nights in a bush camp and go on patrol through the Thuma Forest you can still help. By making a donation you relieve some of the stress the loss of visitor revenue is causing.
For the MONKEYS…
Similarly, you can’t go and play with the tiny baby monkeys right now. But you can help fund their care and the release of the next rehabilitated troop of monkeys. You can still give monkeys a chance to live free again by helping Silke. Make a donation here.
For Wildlife BIG and SMALL…
Baye, runs a rescue rehab center in Bulawayo. She takes in injured owls, abandoned hedgehogs, confiscated baboons, and orphaned zebra. Most can be released, however a few join the others in her sanctuary… their forever home. Income from visitors and student education programs at the sanctuary provide funding for the rescue rehabilitation center. Without either your donation is so appreciated, not to mentioned critical.
You can still make a difference
You get the picture, without the travelers and visitors, your gift is needed more than ever. You have it in your power to help relieve some of the pressure. You can help preserve some of the wildlife you were hoping to see on that African Safari.
