Air France To Fly To South Africa

Air China will commence direct flights into South Africa from March as part of the strengthening of its codeshare agreement with South African Airways, an inside source has told Tourism Update. DoT deputy director: licensing and permits, Andries Ntjane, also confirmed that Air China had made a request for designation to operate on the route to South Africa. He explained that since Air China was a licensed operator, there shouldn’t be any major hurdles. “It’s just a formality,” he added. Air China will operate direct flights to Johannesburg from Beijing with a 45-minute layover before continuing on to Cape Town, the source said. The introduction of direct flights coincides with 2015 being the ‘Year of China’ in South Africa. “The final detail is happening this month for operations in March,” the source confirmed.

Poachers Beware!

Upon first glance, the new efforts undertaken by the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya on behalf of their wildlife may seem extreme.

Now, Ol Pejeta’s military-style plan may feel less scary and more necessary.
 
Teams of Kenyan police reservists are trained to a high level and armed against the threat of poachers. Trained dogs work side-by-side with these men to patrol the reserve’s some 90,000 acres and safeguard the astounding variety of animals at Ol Pejeta in addition to the endangered white rhino, including lions, leopards, zebras, elephants, buffalo, chimpanzees, and hartebeests. And from above, drones monitor the land, alerting the staff to any disconcerting presence or issue. A three-pronged approach to safety may sound complex, but Ol Pejeta will not rest until the day when all wildlife’s survival is guaranteed.
