I have been fortunate enough to experience much of Africa's beauty and splendor. Having been taken to many of South Africa's game reserves while growing up, I have been taught to love and respect the Africa bush-veld.

After leaving school I went on a field guiding course in the world renowned Kruger National Park, this is where my knowledge and experiences within Africa really grew. I have witnessed some truly amazing sights, from every major predator species hunt and kill, to being charged by elephants, rhinos, and buffalo on foot, and I have even been stalked by lions.

One thing is for sure, Africa has a way of creating experiences you will never forget.

Another thing I have experienced is the harm that the human race has caused to the eco-system. within a meer four years I have seen a noticable drop in the rhino populations within Kruger National Park, from seeing approximately 5 rhinos a day in the Satara area to only seeing one maybe every few days.

The devistation that is being caused by the onslaught is astounding.

This has been the reason for the creation of Children for Africa. Through instilling a love and appreciation for Africa in children at a young age, we are ensuring an army of future conservationists many of which will play a key role in solving many of the problems we are currently facing, ensuring the survival of a wide range of wild animals and eco-systems, both in Africa and abroard.

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. - Amelia Earhart
