Safari specialist Real Africa is offering a 20% discount code on tickets to their Close Encounters event at the Royal Geographical Society in London on the evening of Wednesday November 2nd. The evening with special guests, including headline speaker, explorer and broadcaster Benedict Allen along with experts from the world of rhino conservation, is in aid of charity Save the Rhino International.
Benedict is best known for being the first to record his arduous exploits without a TV crew. He has filmed six TV series for the BBC in all including The Skeleton Coast when he famously spent three and half months crossing the Namib desert with camels. In 2013 Benedict was included in the Daily Telegraph’s list of Britain’s “Great Explorers” – the only other living adventurer being Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Benedict is due to return to our television screens this Christmas and is currently filming with BBC Security correspondent Frank Gardner in Papua New Guinea. His talk will not only focus on Africa but his close encounters around the globe. He will also be speaking about his role as patron of Save the Rhino and how he came to be involved.
Tickets range in price from £15-£25. To claim the 20% discount code please email Real Africa’s marketing director Sara White at email@example.com The code can be used in print or on social media.
The Close Encounters event is just one facet of Real Africa’s #RealRhinos campaign which aims to raise awareness about the plight of rhino in the wild as well as raise vital funds for rhino conservation. Based on the current decline of the species it is possible that rhino in the wild will be extinct within the next decade.
50% of money raised will, via Save the Rhino International, go to the anti-poaching dog squads operating in four conservancies in Kenya. Ex military dog trainer Daryll Pleasants will be one of the speakers at the RGS on the 2nd November – Daryll now trains Beligian Malinois and Bloodhounds to join anti poaching squads in Africa, including those on the conservancies in Kenya. He spends a considerable amount of time out in Africa training up the units. He has just returned from Zimbabwe’s Save valley where he has helped to deploy the region’s first dog squad.
The other 50% of money raised will go to Save the Rhino International’s core fund and be directed to where it is in most need.
Less than 30,000 rhino remain. Of the five species, three are listed as critically endangered. This includes the African Black Rhino whose numbers have dwindled to just 5,000. Urgent action is needed to stop the trade of rhino horn, thwart poachers and protect rhino for future generations.
