The plight of the highly endangered rhino in South Africa is well documented and there are many efforts from many people to stop the brutal poaching of this amazing beast. In this issue of Africa Travel, we take you up close and personal to experience one of these initiatives in the Pilansberg National Park in the North West Province of South Africa. You can learn first-hand how the rhinos are "notched" from a helicopter by an experienced veterinarian and then checked and notched on the ground as you watch and even participate.
In this issue we also conclude the last chapter of our epic Dubai desert adventure. Dubai is one of the most unique cities in the world and is definitely worth a visit.
Ethiopian Airlines is arguably one of Africa's best recent success stories. There is just no stopping this dynamic airline. As a country Ethiopia was recently voted the world's most welcoming country by the renowned Rough Guides travel guide and this is partly due to the introduction of online visas. Read about how Ethiopian Airlines also won the recent Skytrax award for Best African Airline and how they keep striving for excellence.
And last but not least we take you to a hotel fit for royalty in the heart of The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town. The amazing Manor House boasts only highly exclusive suites and we had the privilege of savoring this opulence. Oh and you won't find better butlers anywhere.
So enjoy this July issue of Africa Travel and until next time, bon voyage!
