South Africa - On Safari! (#412H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Joseph gets an elephant-sized helping of the African wild on safari at the Lion Sands Private Game Reserve adjacent to South Africa's famed Kruger National Park. Using the elegant Lion Sands accommodations as his home base he heads out in search of the Big Five and encounters lions, African elephants, Cape Buffalos and Black Rhinoceros. He rounds out his wildlife tour at Camp Jabulani when he literally rubs shoulders with two Cheetahs at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre then joins other camp guests atop a team of rescued elephants on safari through the African bush. As an important complement to the animal adventures, he visits the local villages and schools in order to understand more about the native culture and discover how they coexist with and benefit from tourism.

Mozambique, Africa (#413H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

On Mozambique's Bazaruto Archipelago Kuta Katila means, "Roll your reed mat out on the sand, lay back and relax." Always ready to follow local customs, Joseph does exactly that at the Indigo Bay Island Resort and Spa on Bazaruto Island and at the Azura Resort on Benguerra Island. Joseph continues to practice the fine art of Kuta Katila on the sparkling beaches and in the turquoise waters of the Bazaruto Marine National Park. Snorkeling, sailing, horseback riding and sand-boarding down 100-meter high dunes are activities that are all on the agenda, as well as, a sunset swim with horses. Activities aside, as always, the highlight of the show is Joseph's friendly encounters with the islands' people and the opportunity to share cultural experiences.

St. Vincent & the Grenadines - Close to Home, but a World Away (#501H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Thirty-two beautiful islands, off the beaten track, yet in your backyard, is what Joseph discovers on his St. Vincent & the Grenadines adventure. These stunning Caribbean isles offer a wide range of water activities from snorkeling and diving to swimming and sailing. Yet, the best adventures are the natural and cultural ones and Joseph experiences them from searching for the St. Vincent Parrot to swimming with endangered sea turtles and dancing to the drums of the Union Island Maroon Festival.
