  • Save Africa's Wildlife a Snare at a Time
    Be transported to the wilds of Africa from the comfort of your home. We'll meet some of the members of an African snare removal and research team and some of the animals they've dedicated their lives to saving. During this live online experience, you'll help find, catalogue and remove snares and traps used by poachers to catch and kill wildlife. We will delve into the African poaching saga and learn about what it takes to become a world-class wildlife researcher in Africa. Together we will journey to the Cradle of Human Kind in South Africa, which isn't just home to some of the oldest hominid finds in the world but also plays host to wildlife poaching in a unique, "urban" setting. From the land of our ancestors, we will travel north to a 220 000 year old meteorite crater to understand how traditional beliefs and community development can affect wildlife poaching. After clearing the snares from this geological wonder of nature, we will be whisked across the continent to the rain forests of east Africa where our team will visit with our closest "relatives". We will explore these lush, dense rainforests in search of poachers snares to make sure wildlife such as chimpanzees, elephants and leopards don't fall victim to these tools of destruction. Finally we will learn how poachers are changing their ways and turning to conservation and of some ways you can save Africa's wildlife. Other things to note This experience includes videos which are best viewed on a computer screen with a stable internet connection. We will be discussing wildlife poaching so there will be pictures of injured or dead animals which may disturb sensitive viewers (nothing too graphic I promise).

  • Don't watch Soweto, be part of Soweto
    We will begin by going to Vilakazi Street to experience both the historical and current happenings of Soweto. We will go to Mr. Nelson Mandela's house and Mr. Desmond Tutu's home, and also to Mrs. Winnie Madikizela Mandela's home, where I will explain how Soweto started and when and why it was built. We will visit the Shova Lifestyle store, Vilakazi Curio shop shops that have given young and old Sowetans and South Africans platform to make money trough selling crafts ,hand made handbags ,t -shirts also help you understand the making of a new history. We will go to the Hector Pieterson Museum to learn about the Soweto student uprising that became a turning point in South African history. We will then have lunch Kota ( a local delicacy .Then we take a taxi ride will pass in different location that are very important we will even stop in certain area , including one at an informal restaurant to taste local delicacies that were also a big part of the hostels and their violent history. We will then go to the Walter Sisulu Square of dedication in Kliptown the oldest part of Soweto and where the freedom charter was written (this document ended up being the basis of our constitution) Other things to note You may have read that Soweto is dangerous, but I can say that Soweto is not so bad. It's not perfect, but it is safer than many European cities. Sowetan people have "ubuntu"—a humanity toward others.

  • Street art walking tour
    On this Street art walk i pay dedicated attention to the world of graffiti, i focus on different levels of graffiti and share unique aspects that are invisible to people who don’t have any affiliation to the art world of the streets. Visitors get a wider knowledge of why the graffiti artist are motivated to do what they do as i give you an in depth explanation of some of the pieces. Graffiti artist are now formal and informal revivers to derelict spaces around Joburg or wherever there's a seemingly mundane culture, with rich stories and history that no one pays attention to. Street art fills up the void, it is that missing culture that is needed to bring life to an environment, it is an expression of thoughts in imagery and the freedom of different minds, who express themselves through spray painting walls and telling different stories. I've been a part of the 4 elements of the hip-hop movement from a very young age so you'll be walking with an insider. Other things to note Please note that this is a walking experience in the Johannesburg city center.
