Save the Rhino Calendar

As of the 31st of December 2012 over 645 rhinos have been poached in South Africa… This is over 1 rhino per a day. Appalling news – these tragic numbers put us on track to see some of the greatest losses of the animals in South African history, surpassing last year’s record number, a barbaric 448 poached rhinos. According to acclaimed rhino scientists, if poaching continues at its current rate South African’s rhino herd will go into population decline by mid-2012. Jenman African Safaris decided to take some action and do something different to support the fight against rhino poaching! The brave and wildly attractive staff at Jenman Safaris decided to shed their clothes – and inhibitions – for a new approach to rhino conservation with their first ever semi-nude body art, photographic 2013 calendar… It’s sexy, it’s tasteful, and it helps to save our rhinos! The funds are donated to the African Conservation Trust / Project Africa / Save the Rhino for much needed support to fight against rhino poaching. Cost: ZAR 120 per calendar (Project Rhino KZN gets 100% of proceeds) Order: http://jenman.travel/savetherhino/ (we accept VISA and MasterCard) – alternatively you can pay via EFT. More Information: email savetherhino@jenmansafaris.com or go onto the following link http://www.jenmansafaris.com/about-us/save-the-rhino-calendar.html to find out more.

Jenman Cuts Down on Water Bottle Use in Madagascar

Jenman African Safaris has taken the steps to reduce water bottle usage on their tours through Madagascar as part of their responsible tourism policy. Unfortunately, bottled water is unavoidable in Madagascar as the local water is not safe to drink. Heat is another factor, with Madagascar’s hot climate and high temperatures it’s important for travellers to stay refreshed and hydrated throughout their journey, however this can result in an abundance of water bottle waste. Measures to cut down on this waste are absolutely necessary.
