CURWOOD: Last year, we gave away a free African safari to one lucky sweepstakes winner. Now, we want to give everyone else another chance. In May, a group of our listeners will join me on an Eco-Tour of some of Africa’s great natural areas.

The tour will include a special walking safari in South Africa’s amazing Kruger National Park. The park’s 16 ecosystems are home to over 700 different species of birds and mammals. It’s a land of diversity, but Kruger is most famous for an abundance of the “Big Five”: Lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalo, and elephants. You’ll have the rare opportunity to see all these animals up close, as guides take you on day hikes and night drives.

There are two ways that you can join the caravan. Go to livingonearth.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 Web site – livingonearth.org. That’s livingonearth.org for another chance at the trip of a lifetime.
