TRANSCRIPT

<p> ACACIA BIKING EXPEDITION18th-20th OCTOBER 2014Wild Life Africa is a NGO that uses a holistic approach in the conservation process focusing not only on individual species but the whole ecosystems. The major objective of Wild Life Africa is to use events such as Extreme Sporting Challenges in the wilderness and other activities to raise awareness and mobilize resources for community based projects. We choose Cycling tours because we want people to realise it is as an alternative green and enjoyable mode of transport, raise awareness on environmental issues and create an interactive and fun form of eco tourism. We get the community to spearhead initiatives for conservation of Wildlife and environment for a sustainable future.</p> <p>Cycling is a better way to see the world through eco tourism. Not only do you get a more authentic experience, but your holiday benefits local people and the environment. We select areas that offer the full experience; aiming at forming a connection with the people, the landscape, the culture, the food and the environment. Eco-tourism simply means holidays that care about wildlife conservation &amp; the environment and put a little bit back into local communities and conservation. This is the future of tourism. We want you to feel a little like you really live there for a short while, and can enjoy the peace and quiet as well as the excitements of the place as much as the people who really live there do.We shall be having a three day tour of the Athi Kapiti ecosystem this Heroes day long holiday, The tour shall start off at the Acacia camp Situated on the Kapiti Plains opposite the rugged Lukenya Hill, Acacia Camp is nestled in a glade of shady Yellow Fever Trees.
