Join us as we talk about conservation and adventure in some of Africa’s greatest national parks
African Parks takes on complete responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of protected areas in Africa in partnership with governments and local communities. They are one of the most impactful leaders in African conservation. At Extraordinary Journeys, we support all the work they do throughout parks in Africa that we love to travel to, as well as many areas that are a little bit off the radar and tourist track.
In this edition of passports, Chloe and Carli will be talking about some of African Parks’ most impactful projects. Chloe who’s currently living inside Rwanda’s Akagera National Park—a mix of savannah, wetlands, and forest—will share how it’s one of Africa’s greatest conservation success stories. She’ll also take you on a journey to Rwanda’s magical Nyungwe National Park—one of the oldest rainforests in Africa. It’s a biodiversity hot spot that feeds two of the world’s largest rivers, the Congo and the Nile, providing a significant portion of the country’s freshwater.
Carli will chat about African Parks’ efforts to secure the pristine wilderness of the second largest park in all of Africa: Kafue National Park in Western Zambia, from the most pressing threats to the wildlife populations. She’ll also share stories about Liuwa Plains National Park, which has one of the oldest African conservation histories, dating back to the late 19th century.
