Beyond the Lodge #4: Elephant’s Eye

Tales from the Bush

Hwange National Park imprints itself in one’s memory. Being the largest nature reserve in Zimbabwe, it holds prolific biodiversity between its northern and southern borders. John Maytham, Cape Talk radio host, actor and wildlife enthusiast reflects on his experience of Hwange, initially in 1970, then 2013 – speaking into the vast and various landscapes, and wildlife opportunities within.

Listen to the full discussion to learn how the landscape of conservation initiatives has changed over the years, with Conservation and Community Tourism becoming mutually exclusive. De Villers Graaf from De Grendel Wines joins the chat to highlight the importance of furthering education in local communities, speaking into Project Ruzivo – an incredible scholarship fund set up by Grow Africa, and supported by De Grendel.

As John reiterates, when there is a storm – we need to plant seeds – reminding us to maintain hope as we travel through life’s terrain.
