Blue Sky offers Journeys with Purpose. Blue Sky is a trust set up by Carla Geyser to bring together enthusiastic adventurers with a passion for conservation.
Carla brings together like-minded people from around the world on trips in Africa that focus on visiting and raising funds for wildlife initiatives along the route.
Here Carla writes about the inspiration coming from working with Elephants…
The Elephant was the ORIGINAL communicator in Africa, opening up pathways through the bush and over mountains for man to follow, thus uniting the continent.
The elephant is the symbol of AFRICAN UNITY. Have you ever wondered where the word “trunk call” comes from?
The Elephant is also the strongest and largest land animal in the world, the King of all animals and therefore the symbol of POWER.
The Elephant has a powerful “sense of family” and members of the herd are connected by strong bonds. The Elephant is therefore a symbol of FAMILY UNITY.
In our current world of uncertainty, anxiety and chaos, there is no time like the present to embrace these three words:
UNITY – POWER – FAMILY.
The unity of communities and nature working together, the power of individuals and animals, and the close bonds of family units. This is Africa and we love her passion and lessons she teaches us.
There are so many reasons why we need to protect these magnificent ‘Grey Ghosts’ of Africa.
