While most of us are unable to travel around the world at the moment, these incredible virtual tours of Africa should ease your growing wanderlust.
One thing that South Africa is known for around the world is the amazing wildlife. Going on safari is something that many people simply cannot do in the current global circumstance. WildEarth and &Beyond have teamed up to bring safaris to the masses through Facebook and YouTube, while also sharing videos on Instagram. Rangers are taking viewers around Phinda Private Game Reserve and Ngala Private Game Reserve to see South Africa’s amazing wildlife during lockdown.
