CURWOOD: Earlier this year Living on Earth teamed up with Heritage Africa and South African Airways to give away a 15 day African Safari. We were thrilled that so many listeners entered the sweepstakes – and sad we could only give the trip to one. That lucky winner is a Portland, Oregon psychologist, a mother who plans to take along her young daughter. Wildlife enthusiasts both, they are eager to see the animals of Africa up close.

Now, we want to give everyone else another chance to do the same. We are preparing another African Eco-tour. This time, you can have a chance to join me on a walking safari. We’ll stay in an African village where we will have the chance to canoe and hike, and then travel deep into Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park to see lions, hippos, monkeys, and all sorts of wild animals at home in the bush.

There are two ways that you can join the caravan. Go to living on earth dot org to find out how you can win a trip for two. You can also reserve a space by buying a ticket right now. For details, visit our website – livingonearth.org. That’s livingonearth.org for another chance at the trip of a lifetime. And you’re listening to NPR’s Living on Earth.
