Getting out and about and travelling around Southern Africa on Safari is exhilarating. The natural beauty of the landscapes and the vast openness teeming with wildlife is breathtaking.
Having spent the last few years back and forth between Ireland and South Africa, I got to do a fair amount of travelling – I was fortunate to visit many of these breathtaking destinations in far out, remote parts of Sub Saharan Africa.
Unfortunately, this also meant that I witnessed levels of poverty in rural villages that really shook me to the core. Since the inception of Grace Diamonds, it was always our goal to get involved in a local charity.
