16 year old Andrew Nyumba from Kafinda basic school in Sereje district, on her first safari in Kasanka National Park. "The visit has been different from normal life - watching wild animals is more fun than normal life. Monkeys are my favourite animals so watching them makes me feel good." Local schools and women's groups are regularly brought into Kasanka, which is unique in the country and unusual in Africa as it is privately managed and owned by a trust. People are able to see animals flourishing in land which was once free reign for poachers. Combined with anti-poaching scouts, the education programme is on the frontline of conservation methods in the park, showing local people wild animals in their natural habitat.
