Adventure and Conservation: A 6000 km Tuk Tuk Journey Through Africa

September 14, 2021

Have you ever came upon something while traveling that sparked a fire within you and pushed you to make change? 

For the past 6 months, Robbie, Ivo, Jasper & Josh have created adventure videos in Kenya for their YouTube channel,  and it quickly became apparent that the loss of tourism, due to Covid-19, is hurting parks and conservancies throughout Africa. After interviewing rangers and uncovering the truth about reduced salaries and increased workload, the group of creators knew they had to take action.

If you want to know exactly how 4 young YouTubers decided to journey from Kenya to Cape Town in nothing but 2 tuk-tuks, all in the name of conservation, then you do not want to miss this week's episode! 

What is one thing you can do to spark change within your own community? I'd love to hear about it and hope you will share by sending me an audio message.

Don't forget that if you want access to the private Zero To Travel podcast feed, a bonus episode every month (decided on by YOU), exclusive content, direct access to me to answer your questions, and more. Check out Zero To Travel Premium Passport.
