Everyone loves a good story, a story well told. I have heard some epic stories of love, adventure, nature, travel, people connecting with people. Inspiring, disturbing, amusing, memorable. Travel is the best way to experience life and create new stories.

A beautiful story of love, life and elephants is the story of David and Daphne Sheldrick, founders of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a haven for elephant orphans, rhinos and other animals in the Nairobi National Park. Daphne Sheldrick was the first person to successfully hand-rear newborn elephants. Watch a video clip of the baby elephants from the sanctuary being fed on page 4 (Note from the CEO) of the digital magazine here.

Since her beloved husband’s death in 1977, Daphne together with her daughters, has continued this wonderful work. I had the pleasure of visiting the sanctuary and experiencing the immense joy and love of their work.

Daphne’s book, An African Love Story, is just that; an epic love story. Drug Muled: the Vanessa Goosen Story, on the other hand, is a chilling and very serious reminder of why we should never carry goods for anyone when we travel. Duped into carrying books that contained hidden heroin, Vanessa spent 16 years in a Thai jail.

Stories from people like the good doctor, Imtiaz  Sooliman, founder of Gift of the Givers (page 58) and the trials and tribulations of travellers like Azad Essa (page 18) are insightful and highlight the fact that you have to be tough to travel  under these circumstances.
