Giving back feels good

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi. These words rang true when Haval Motor Southern Africa commenced their second leg of the 2019 Haval Outreach expedition. The first week was about the cars and the scenery that is the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga but the second leg will forever be remembered as the time Haval Motors SA sought to be the change they wanted to see in the world.

The team of Haval staffers and their trusted fleet of Haval SUVs and the GWM Steed 5E Double Cab met the group of Lifestyle Magazine scribes and social media influencers for the second leg at the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport for what promised to be a week filled with sights, sounds and great memories in the making. After a stop in Hazyview to refresh and replenish, the convoy headed towards the other end of the Blyde River Canyon for their stop over at the Swadini Resort. The evening was the opportunity for Rhino conservationists to brief the group on what was going to happen the following day. Haval Motors SA made a contribution in the form of monetary support to Rhino conservation in the Klaserie Game Reserve. These funds went directly towards assistance in the dehorning program that is currently ongoing in the area in and around South Africa's primary game reserve, The Kruger National Park.
