  • Be Spoiled By The Unspoiled Discover a ‘lost world’ in South America

    GUYANA, 2016/12/11 Emerging as a incomparable eco-tourism destination with exceptional pristine rainforests, undisturbed ecosystems, exotic flora & fauna, and a vibrant culture and people, Guyana is capturing the hearts and minds of adventurers, eco-tourists, conservationists and curious vacationers looking to experience a truly unspoiled gem in South America. Nestled between Venezuela to the west, Suriname to the east, and Brazil to the south, Guyana has often been overshadowed as a tourist destination by some of its bigger, and louder, neighbors stealing the region’s limelight on the international tourism stage. However, the government of South America’s only English-speaking country is determined to see the word spread about its immense natural attractions and provide the conditions to enable its tourism industry to shine. It has embarked on an image building and branding campaign to not only get the message across to international tourists and investors as to Guyana’s huge attractions, but as well to the Guyanese of tapping the business potential in this nascent sector.

  • Maverick Elephant Causes Mayhem At Lunch Table,Zimbabwe

    ZIMBABWE, 2015/09/15 A video has emerged of an elephant causing mayhem at the alfresco luncheon table of guests at a luxury camp in Zimbabwe's famed Mana Pools National Park. Two male diners appear to be slightly nervous as they sit with their backs turned to the giant mammal, who searches the grassy floor with his trunk just metres behind them. Again the elephant, ears flapping, takes several steps towards the two men, lowers its chief and swings his trunk and tusks at one of them, propelling him out of the picture frame. The elephant instantly turns on the man's fellow diner, nudging him over the top of the table.
  • Ecotourism attract visitors to Lebanon,Lebanese people to discover their own country

    LEBANON, 2015/08/09 In February, the Ministry of Tourism launched a five-year plan to develop rural tourism in Lebanon, using a wide definition of ecotourism that covers religious, regional, agricultural, sports and traditional food tourism. In the '90s, ecotourism was the initiative of small groups and nongovernmental organizations — such as Arcenciel and T.E.R.R.E. Liban — sharing their passion for the environment with local and international visitors. Tourism in Lebanon, since the 2006 war with Israel, has been through ups and downs, between a record 361,934 arrivals in July 2010 and the first-quarter 2014 drop with only 229,252, according to the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Finance and the Central Administration of Statistics. According to Executive Magazine’s May 2014 report, “Lebanon needs a bold new beginning in the tourism sector.” The International Ecotourism Society defines ecotourism as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people and involves interpretation and education."

    MOZAMBIQUE, 2014/10/09 Environmentalists warned in mid-September that killing for ivory by organised syndicates was being carried out on an “industrialised” scale – between 1 500 and 1 800 elephants are being poached a year, mostly in northern Mozambique.
