Behind the Scenes on our First #GivingTuesday Game Drive

Last month, our #GivingTuesday campaign raised funds to send over 250 students on their first game drive! We partnered with Africa Foundation and & Beyond to bring this dream to life. We will be sharing more info about this exciting partnership next month, but for now, here is a behind the scenes look into the inaugural game drive funded by this successful campaign. We saw three different lion prides, along with a wide variety of plains game and bird life. Our guides were incredible, and one of GCC’s board advisors (Principal Ernest Hlati) was able to accompany us for the excursion. A massive thank you to the donors who brought this reality to fruition, and we look forward to many more game drives and adventures together!
