Promoting the drives

With our intrepid trio back in Djuma and the safaris restarted it’s high time to start spreading the word far and wide. For this we would like to once more ask you for your help as we focus mainly on two areas we believe will yield the fastest results: Embedding and press contacts.

For both areas we have a group of volunteers who will keep track of the progress and follow through on communications but to have the biggest reach we would like you to be our trackers and front line.

So, if you know of one or more sites that you think might be interested in embedding the Safari/waterhole stream please write to them explaining in your own words why you enjoy our safaris and why you think it would be a good addition to their site, and then ask them to write to ’[email protected]’ to request an embed code if they are interested. If you’d rather we make the contact, just send the name of the site to ’[email protected]’ and the embed group will pick it up from there. If you do write directly please also inform the group that you’re doing so, using the same ’[email protected]’ address.)

If you’d like to include a little more info on the Djuma safaris or WildEarth you can attach one or both of the following files with your message.

You can download these files by clicking on the link and then saving them from your browser or by right-clicking on the link and downloading them directly. (As some of our advertisers require us to keep track of where our players are embedded we can not include embed codes in these files and can only provide them when webmasters ask for them directly. )

For press contacts we suggest the same procedure, only we ask that you always include both the information documents supplied above. Also, as in this type of contacts there is a lot more room for misunderstandings than for the embeds we ask that the press group always be involved once a response from a radio or TV station or a publication is received. We’re more than happy for you and your experience to be the focus of the story, but want to be able to provide some guidance or advise where needed. The best way to do this is to from the start include ‘[email protected]’ as a cc. in your email.

As you might have read in an earlier blog a centralised Djuma merchandise store has been created with profits from that shop going to Djuma. The shop has opened this week and can be found on:

Thanks as always for your support!

    I think the Djuma Reserve website and link to safari could be embedded in all the zoo web site of the world. Here’s the one closest to us.

    Here’s another one , holding a safari drive on their premises. These zoos may be interested in linking Djuma Safaris and Reserve to their sites.

    Hi Djuma and all of Djuma friends..I just can’t imagine not having Live drives. For the past four years my life has changed by watching all the great animals in Sabi Sands and meeting new friends. Some I have met in person. I sure hope there will be some way the drives can go on…I have posted on my Down-Home-Chatter List on and also on my facebook for all to join in…With much love that flows from ohio to all parts of the world from me to you…Please keep the drives going…

    With my background of being South African born, zoology degree and now a veterinarian, I love the drives. Unfortunately my sphere of influence is rather small, but I am trying my best to spread the word.

    Finallly a Karula Tshirt! My holiday gift list is made!

    A picture with the cubs and maybe even Jordaan and Induna would be awesome!!

    I will keep on watching, leave the ads running and try to spread the word!!

    You guys are doing great.
