Ten years ago I traveled to South Africa’s Kruger National Park on safari. The immense power of those images– cheetah cubs frolicking on the open plain, wild dogs digging under a fence to get back into the park, a massive bull elephant coming so close to our Jeep that I could feel his breath on my face– changed my life forever.
It wasn’t just the beauty of seeing these magnificent animals in their natural habitat that moved me. It was the passion with which the park rangers and guides spoke of preserving this incredible gift for generations to come, and the way locals spoke of ecotourism as their hope for a better and brighter economic future. Ever since then I’ve dreamed of using my abilities as a writer and photographer to help make the world a better place, not just for us but for our children and their children’s children. Mary and I have launched GreenGlobalTravel.com to do just that.
We launched Green Global Travel because we are insatiably curious about new people, new places, new experiences and new ideas, and love sharing those things with other people in a way that will hopefully inform and inspire.
We launched Green Global Travel because we are passionate about ecotourism, and believe in its potential to help save the world’s precious nature and wildlife by encouraging sustainable practices that both benefit and respect local indigenous cultures.
We launched Green Global Travel because we truly believe that the words, photos and videos we capture along our journeys will both entertain you and help draw attention to the importance of environmental conservation.
We launched Green Global Travel because it is our dream.
Thanks for being a part of it,
Bret Love & Mary Gabbett
