@Susan, thanks a lot any time if you are interested to do a conservation safari trip to Serengeti national park -Tanzania, you have a support, also i will launch disability inclusion for tourism and conservation with a brand name 100 wheelchair Africa " Wheelchair, Wildlife Safari" this year about 20-30 people with physical disability will ride inside the protected areas, we teach them about wildlife conservation before to ride

 

Tanzania based Peace for Conservation in collaboration with Ferret Fred Productions, is now hosting the 100 Wheelchair Africa channel. We break down barriers for people with physical disabilities by organizing safari tours for them in Serengeti National Park where they will see animals in their natural habitats. Breaking down former accessibility barriers will give them a feeling of Tanzania’s heartbeat; let them discover magical sights and add smiles to their faces; to allow them to experience the "big five" found in Tanzania, including lions, elephants and leopards. https://vimeo.com/channels/1825164/782065896

Asante sana @David Kabambo Kabambo 

This is so inspirational to see! I initiated a research project that looked at children's perceptions of wildlife conservation next to protected areas and areas without any wildlife in Kenya and South Africa. It's so inspiring to hear that ex-poachers are seeing the benefit of protecting wildlife and the value of it - a message we need children to hear across the world 

Poa Kabisa Kate
